Re: Airbus And Boeing 2019 Orders

As twin jets are the death of 4 engined planes the XLR is the death of widebody and we will all be going trans continental packed like sardines in the 2020s... :)

Re: Chief Engineer: Ethiopian Airlines Went Into Records After 737 MAX Crash

The claim that an airline us beating people who work for it seems to being glossed over, surely that is not worthy of conversation even without the crash?

Perhaps airline companies beating their staff is yesterday's news though?

Re: KLM becoming a bit sneaky and standards are falling...

see I am really curious what others think. Do you have the same feeling? I hope KLM will change its ways become a bit more open, reliable and customer oriented again. You seem to have extremely high expectations from an airline these days; when you buy a fare, what percentage of it do you factor to...

Re: What is Boeing’s overall commercial game plan?

What is Boeing’s overall commercial game plan? To capitalize on the market demand for aircraft in a duopoly by selling aircraft at the highest possible price at the lowest possible production cost. LOL, I was thinking along the same lines. 'To sell products and services at a price higher than the c...

Re: Boeing 777X Testing Thread - 2019

For some reason I still get disappointed how small the folder tips are, from all the build up my mind had pictured something a lot bigger for all the effort involved. I know this is my preconception but even so.
I am sure they will look funky from the windows looking out.

Re: Gatwick drone closures

I have to say that for tin foil hat conspiracy theorists this currently has a lot more gas in the tank for it to run and run. The first sighting was done at night, but drones are really hard to see at night, then people got spooked. Did anyone ever see the drone that caused the previous diversions? ...

Re: Inaugural QF MEL-PER-LHR this Saturday 24 March

This has to be the one of the biggest marketing pull offs ever for a single flight in the last few years. Even BBC have it on front page.

Whether it grows or withers, they have got a lot of column inches. Or should I say likes, in this day and age:?

Re: Inaugural QF MEL-PER-LHR this Saturday 24 March

I think you will find that normal people (enthusiasts) don't sit watching a Go-pro UNEDITED video for 17 hours, especially when it's pitch black inside and outside the cabin. Take off, landing and maybe a snap shot of the meal (max 5 minutes) would be quite enough for 99.9% of enthusiasts. I think ...

Re: The A380 and US airlines: Too late or still a chance?

Could a cheap cost airline get 2nd hand A380's, such as ex Singapore, and pack them out with all economy seats and go from Europe to main airports such as New York, Miami or LA ? Or is it still better for them to go modern twin jet and perhaps go to an airport nearby and would still be more cost eff...

Re: DL JFK-SEA makes unplanned stop due to bathrooms

Puns, sigh. Lets summarise sensibly, the flight took off and then rapidly went down the pan.

Re: Boeing 777X - Updated Information And Developments

The cowl looks very thick, is that because it needs to be for containment purposes due to the fan blades being so big, hence more kinetic energy?

I am no expert though.
