Re: A350-900 now has a 283t MTOW

Slightly off topic but what makes JNB so unique in regards to tire speed? Plenty of airports are higher, MEX, BOG, ADD, to name a few.. Aircraft are payload restricted out of these airports but I never hear of tire speed as a limiting factor.. And you'll still see ET taking stops on west-bound flig...

Re: Why does a 737-700 use flap 1 and not zero flap for take off?

While it's an interesting academic question to ask, the first question is what benefits may be realized from the configuration IF it were possible. What were you thinking the benefits are/were? I'm just not getting what those might be. The 737 reaches flat retraction speeds very quickly even at redu...

Re: United Airlines Fleet Thread - 2022

The 753s could be replaced by the 321-200N or 737-MAX10 which are coming online. Actually, they couldn’t. Or at least not directly. The 753 has the lowest CASM of any UA narrowbody due to it’s immense capacity as it has the space for about 50 more seats than a 752, 321, or a MAX10 in a dual class c...

The backbone? Part of it, sure. But AA has almost 100 more 737-800s/-8s than A321s/A321neos with more on order. The 738 is still a pretty big bump in capacity over the MD-80 too, which I think was the point. You mean the A321 vs the MD-80? The 737-800 is only slightly bigger, like 10 seats with ide...
