Anyone remembers the B787 caught on fire in LHR few years back? I mention this is because the location of the fire is extremely similar, near the rear left door, on B787 it is L4 door galley. On this B777, it seems to be in a similar location. Yes I am sure the B777 is a entirely different circumst...Jump to post

In case anyone is wondering the process uses renewable electricity (I suppose solar or hydro) to break water into O2 and H2 then combine the H2 with CO2 to make hydrocarbons. There is a lot of hydro power in Canada. Not sure about year round solar in the Great White North. Is there much geothermal ...Jump to post

To me, American’s strategy looks more and more like a Hail Mary. Which honestly, may be the best business decision they can make at this point. They struggled to turn a profit when DL and UA were killing it. They might (rightfully) say our only play here is offense and hope it works out. Time will t...Jump to post

Presently PHL cannot legally accept any intl flights per U.S. restrictions.
I don't think they have had non-ETOPS widebodies in years. DL's now retired domestic 763s had ETOPS as they were used for Hawaii flights. AA's Domestic 3-Cabin 762s also had ETOPS as they were occasionally used as Hawaii-subs ex LAX. UA domestic HD 763s/772s also were used for Hawaii and had ETOPS....Jump to post

Delta is looking into using their 777s until the end of the year for cargo and leaving the D1 Suites onboard to get any passenger revenue they can. That is where this all D1 post came from. I could see this actually as the only real reason for this. You flip the revenue model. Before COGS was cover...Jump to post
That's your opinion. It certainly isn't worthy of being presented as objective fact.

Yeah I checked that route for the next month, and all I'm seeing at the moment is A333s and 763s. Didn't Delta usually do ATL-LAX-SYD with the 77L? How will they rotate the 77L into LAX this time? Not sure about the 77L rotation, but I believe once LAX-SYD goes to the 350, they won't have to rotate...Jump to post

Sorry Zeke, while I value much of your input on various topics, your statement is not exactly 100% accurate either. While aircraft are not publicly owned, they are publicly accessible.

It's very simple. If the airline provides a seat that reclines a passenger has every right to recline it. That goes for the person seating infront of me, the person sitting behind me and for my own choice as well. Take it up with the airline - not the passenger. They are well within their rights.
