Right now they don't have any idea where to look for MH370. How are you arriving at that conclusion? The searches are currently suspended. They don't have a clue that points to MH370 being in a single location like they do for Amelia Earhart's Lockheed Electra. So Ballard could try searching for MH...Jump to post

At least finding MH370 could be useful to living people, from a personal and legal standpoint.
Is there a way the announcement can be pinned to the top of this thread so that we don't have to scroll through hundreds of speculation posts to find it?Jump to post
Out of all the many jobs there are in an airline, seems like the pilots are the last ones they'd want to replace with automation.Jump to post
767, 777, A330... because I like the way they look.Jump to post

Besides the 777-200/777-200ER, they already have these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingtip_device#Raked_wingtip No need for winglets. The non-ER 777-300 also has the original, non-raked wingtip.

Withholding final judgement till we see the real thing, but I really like the tail so far. Bit disappointed with the cheat-line being just a wavy black. Not sure how I will like the painted blue engines on a bigger aircraft. Optimistic overall, and really think they may have knocked it out of the p...Jump to post

Does anyone know why UA's marketing team is awful? Here we are in 2019 and they are still keeping the globe.

Delta and American seemed to make it work and criticize them al...Jump to post
Oh dear, the focus is on the tail. I hope that doesn't mean that's where the entire livery will be with the rest painted white.Jump to post
Came across this online and thought it would be an interesting concept for a retro livery. https://i.ibb.co/pJs8LjK/7-A42594-B-3-C2-F-40-FB-8744-60043-D80-A40-D.jpg Nice. Very nice. They need to dump the globe and go back to these colors. They can do a hell of a lot with paint jobs these days and w...Jump to post
It will never happen but I love the idea. Truth is now days it is taboo to even speak of CO inside the company. I won’t deny there is a cabal of us who do in secret.

I think it's mostly satellite.
Nope, the close-up data and 3D view (which show the same lack of airplanes) come from airplanes.
I can't imagine something as big as an a319 taking off from BED, this might be worth going out there to see... BED has a 7000-foot runway and a 5000-foot one. A lightly loaded A319 could take off from the shorter one with room to spare. Adding to that, there's also a Delta 757 and some kind of KC-1...Jump to post

Will they have more European destinations in 2021 when they launch London? Otherwise I don't even see the point announcing this early.Jump to post
I was watching the Miami Marlins on Fox Sports today and I noticed something interesting about a commercial for Southwest that was being aired.

I've been on a bus at JFK after deplaning from an international JetBlue flight. I actually like being in airport busses since you get to be close up next to aircraft on the ramp.Jump to post
Did the crew not make a PA call, "welcome on board this flight to EDI", at which point the pax might have noticed "that's nowhere near Dusseldorf". Something just doesn't add up. It's nothing to do with being an aircraft enthusiast; even with complete cloud cover, you would sens...Jump to post

I'm happy that United is finally updating its livery after nearly nine years of continuing the 1991 Continental livery but with the United name.

Rest in peace. Sadly aircraft manufacturers don't seem to give a damn about STOL and unpaved runways nowadays so many airlines still have to use these 70-year-old props. As much as I love the DC-3 this needs to stop. There are plenty of modern STOL aircraft that are in development today, so I don't...Jump to post
Praying they ditch eurowhite for blue and a return of the tulip with the globe pattern inside it. Realistically, they’re probably just putting the swoopy 787 livery on everything.

Well, okay -- United is about to lose the last element of Continental Airlines that existed. They ditched the Houston headquarters and downsized the hub. So what's left for anyone in Houston to show loyalty to? As of right now, it looks like the globe is probably staying, and will only be modified ...Jump to post

I'm surprised that a crash hasn't got more media attention. Commutair has some serious problems so I am not surprised that this was them going off roading. What kind of problems does Commutair have?

With United talking about how they want to connect people around the world and stuff, it makes more sense for them to keep some variation of the globe instead of using a tulip or whatever. I'm not sure why people hate the globe. It has a professional look and that's what Continental was about. They ...Jump to post
