Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

Sounds like an opportunity for EK and KE to (permanently) upgauge. Or perhaps a completely new airliner: BR, CA, CI, etc. Isn't the airport itself closed? What difference would it make for other carriers to upgauge if the ultimate destination airport is closed due to demonstrations? Unless there ar...

The F product on both aircraft is excellent, and are perfect for their respected aircraft. except that there is zero privacy in those F seats, especially on the 773's.

Re: Long-haul Y pax experience: Boeing 77Ws and 787s vs Airbus 350s and 330s.

From what I hear, the 787 is not very comfortable due to the entertainment boxes under the seats. In contrast, I hear the A350 is really comfortable. Haven't heard remarks about the 777/A330. Really depends on the airline and configuration for that. JL's old layout (no prem econ) had boxes. Wasn't ...
