not only that but with the wingtips up the aircraft can't go faster than 60 knots Was it ever made public if stuck up wingtips could be waived for flight? ( then both up, obviously ) I read your comment along the lines of: Was it ever made public if the aircraft waved its wingtips in flight? Would ...Jump to post
Different light, different perspective – different thoughts?

I noticed that unlike the new Lufthansa livery, the blue extends down onto the fuselage in a curved (not straight) line – that's a nice touch in my opinion.
I also suspect the livery will look less grey and more white in real life.
I like the renderings. I hope the engines look as metallic and the fuselage as grey in real life – not very eurowhite at all. SAS's new livery beats Lufthansa's by far!Jump to post

The Nordic countries are, Denmark (including Farör and Greenland) Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
http://www.boldscandinavia.com/work/sas/ This is the firm that SAS used for their brand refresh last year, Bold. The same company designed the 70th anniversary livery. It is unlikely that SAS would sign a contract with a new firm after the successful brand refresh last year, so I'm inclined to think...Jump to post

She kicks and spits and refuses to talk to anyone who approaches her while she screams gobbledygook at a plane landing. She's mentally ill and has some sort of delusion that's associated with this flight. There's no greater meaning than that. Everyone putting these feel good ideas (with zero proof ...Jump to post

ARN: The only two airlines that operated them in the 21st century were TG and MH. The latter cancelled its KUL–ARN–EWR route in 2009 and Thai replaced its 744s with 77Ws a few years later.Jump to post
When are the other two birds due for repaint?Jump to post
I used to fly the 717 frequently with Blue1 (I think theirs are with Delta now?) and I never noticed the bleed-air noise you're describing. I hope you give it another chance, it's a great aircraft.Jump to post

I've only flown with UA once, in Business. All drinks were served in plastic cups. Personally I don't mind, but I can imagine other business travellers would. It was kind of odd. Maybe they should change that before they change what's in them.Jump to post
They seem to have painted the wings all white, just like LH did with its new livery. Elegant, if you ask me; the livery looks complete.Jump to post
I'm throwing shade at Lufthansa for doing this. A darker shade. They better catch it and apply it back!
Elegance was lost with this change. This queen looks cheap.

There is an obsession with mergers on a.net. Mergers cut down on competition. A few big airlines will just carve up the market in Europe between them and avoid like hell to compete with each other. I for myself hope, that smaller airlines making a good profit, will stay independent and provide comp...Jump to post

In the age of fleet commonality, I hope they keep the 777X order still and add A35Js to their A350 order. Only for the sake of my hobby! The 77X order will likely remain as it is, yes, but chances are that some options will be dropped, and some 779s transferred to Swiss to replace the 77Ws. Thank y...Jump to post

In the English-language Wikipedia article about Jan Carlzon, CEO of SAS Group 1981-1994, this passage caught my attention. Carlzon also oversaw a complete corporate identity re-design, a process which was marred when a journalist gained unlawful access to a hangar with a plane painted in a proposed ...Jump to post

I'm not sure about that, but let's say you're right. It still doesn't explain why they'd pick Helsinki. Maybe they'd look at Tallinn instead and hook up with AirBaltic. Tallinn is certainly capable of handling long haul flights and it's likely much cheaper than either Sweden or Finland. Plus it's h...Jump to post
There are a number of unusual flights arriving to Arlanda today. Does anybody know what's the occasion? Cruise ship passengers.
