Nah, does nothing for me. The curves of the globe and the fuselage curved blue/grey lines jar with the straight lines of the United font. The blue engines also look like an afterthought.Jump to post
I wonder if given the prominence of the Ethiopian crash in the news, and the the Shoreham crash if this is really a knee-jerk reaction. They even say in their press release that they "do not currently have sufficient information". Nothing to do with Brexit!Jump to post

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-47463443 A shame, but going on previous years a lot of aircraft had left before the public days, with the added bonus that it is a pain to get in and out. Unfortunately, not a great surprise. The Shoreham crash is going to hasten the demise of public d...Jump to post

I had really high hopes that MAEL would have a good future after the collapse of Monarch Airlines. Terrible thing to happen to employees at a bad time of year. I hope they find other employment quickly.Jump to post
A drone doesn't need GPS to fly. They are fitted with all sorts of sensors that keep the flying stable, GPS is more about knowing it's position in the world. I am sure knee-jerk legislation will come, but I doubt it'll have any effect on those whose wish to use drones for nefarious purposes.Jump to post
He is lucky to be able to leave soon. Istanbul opened it's new airport and Turkish started taking delivery of a lot of aircraft. They could well drain a chunk of the traffic from Dubai. I'm sure it'll be a factor, but I question how much a factor it'll be. I can't say I value highly the reputation ...Jump to post
I don't really consider easyJet a true LCC, like Ryanair, Norwegian, Wizz Air, etc. I consider them more a hybrid between the traditional legacy and full low-cost. They seemed to be an early adopter in targeting business travelers and operating to primary airports. Ryanair has only relatively recent...Jump to post

Isnt this frame being converted to a -400M or a tanker? If that was true, how would they stretch it? That aircraft has already been built, so I don't see how they can stretch an already built aircraft at all. De-rivet a production joint and insert a fuselage plug. Much like Bombardier did when they...Jump to post
At least Jet2 seem to have their act together with their European operations and they seem to have a good reputation in the UK. I'd give them favorable odds at being able to make it work. I think Jet2 has grown quite organically, and don't see them rushing into long-haul.Jump to post
It looks fantastic. The Delta livery suits all aircraft and looks stunning when it's paint shop fresh. To think that there was a time when we thought it'd never happen.Jump to post
I fully expected when I opened this thread that there would be a whole lot of people stating how much they disliked the new Lufthansa branding. I was not disappointed. So, to balance things out, I'd like to reaffirm that I like the new branding and that the A340-600 looks great. An equally pointless...Jump to post
I wonder if they'd rename the ATR series to something like the A100? (A142/A172).Jump to post
...but most passengers flying farther, to Sacramento, Spokane, Boise, Oakland etc. want an E175. What passengers want, and what they are willing (or able) to pay are often two different things.

I feel "next HA aircraft must be capable of X amount of cycles, just like the B717" to be one of those A.net myths. The number one fact is the 717 is going to be leaving the HA fleet at some point in the future. If the replacement aircraft they choose can't handle those sorts of cycles, th...Jump to post
Strange how used 319's are in demand but they can't seem to give away new ones! There is a difference between selling new aircraft and orphan aircraft with low residual value - 717-200 vs new 737-700, MD-83 vs new A319-100, Avro RJ vs new ER-190/195, 777-200 vs new A330-300, 757-200 vs new A321neoL...Jump to post
EY was exciting to watch,. In my opinion subsidized by Abu Dhabi oil too much.

Why would anyone want to fly a 727 in 2018? Aren't there 737NG's available? I would think that with the 737Max coming into airline fleets, used 737NG's should be coming available. They are much easier to support than 727's. I am glad that there are operators still choosing to in 2018. Do any enthus...Jump to post
Not to be too picky, but many of the A320 family ACJ operators use tail tanks. It actually improves the aerodynamics, fuel consumption as well as the CoG for takeoff and landing. Do you have a source for that? I'm genuinely interested. It seems incredible that option would be offered when not all o...Jump to post
I think it exudes a simple elegance, professional, clean, yet familiar. I'm sure that whoever was consulted to do this branding did their research thoroughly. You may also consider that the demographic that Lufthansa is trying to appeal to simply isn't you.Jump to post
Wild Card, Jet2 for replacement of x18 737-300, still growing and not afraid of a mixed fleet. I remember seeing something in a promo video for the C Series that had a Jet 2 executive in it.Jump to post
I am in favor of Boeing doing a 767X; it could remove the need for a clean sheet NMA in the near term. There could also be synergies in using the GENx-2B, and the upgraded 787-style Rockwell Collins flight deck for the KC-46. This would increase the market for spares and potentially reduce overhaul ...Jump to post

I have 0 in-depth knowledge, but 10 must be type maximum. 757s are regularly pushing 9ish westbound. 757s fully loaded must be slower than their wide-body counterparts; they are doing westbounds quicker at a rate of 1-2 hours less.

I am sure adjustments will be made, but they have a future, perhaps not as bright as previously forecast.
Some of the replies to this thread beggars belief. It shouldn't matter who you are, or which airline you are flying there should be the expectation that you won't be robbed. I can't say that any flight that I've got on that I ever gave a passing thought to be robbed, and I don't have $4,000 to carry...Jump to post
Clearly, if Boeing hadn't been so shortsighted they could've, I dunno, sold them some 717s, or something.
Sarcasm aside, the global trend for airlines is increasing seat numbers. I think Southwest will do quite well with their current and planned fleet.
