I suppose you’re right, impilot. I guess it has an LCC-feel to me. It just doesn’t look like a global carrier livery to me. I guess I’ll just stick with “meh.”Jump to post
Looks like a regional airline to me. My overall reaction is, “meh.” With our recent downgrades to our Polaris product and our widely disliked new uniform design, I think this is the best livery I could have expected from our big, muddling airline. I’m not sure how much we’re paying PriestmanGoode fo...Jump to post
“Raft of the Medusa” I had to google. Aptivaboy, that reference is freakin’ awesome! I have to add that to “go pound sand.” I’d never seen that phrase before reading some angry back-and-forth on this fine website.
The 737-900ER is perfectly labeled “Raft of the Medusa.” Thank you!
That’s one the richest, most interesting posts I’ve ever read on airliners.net.
Thanks for this, CALTECH. I figured we would see a new designation for these China Southern A320s. If their internal configurations (lavatory and galley placement, minor differences such as interphone location) are at all different from the 20S fleet, we’d have to separate them somehow. Thanks for a...Jump to post
Thanks, CAL! I look forward to seeing these new-used A320s. I’m surprised they’ll receive the same “20S” designation. I figured if even the smallest difference exists in the cabin (from aft lavatory placement to even a different type of interphone handset/placement), the aircraft would get a differe...Jump to post
CALTECH, Are you 100% sure about those two A320s coming from China Southern? I haven’t seen any news about this through either UA Inflight or AFA. So far, we’ve been told to expect only A319 “Cs” to slowly come onto the line. Also, the “20S” is already used to designate our current A320s. If these C...Jump to post
Every year, for the past several years, United operates nonstops to MSN from all of its hubs (and from CLE this year) to support Epic System's annual users' convention. This year, flights bring in the attendees on September 24th and take them back home on September 28th.Jump to post
I don't mind any posting by "jumbojet" or anyone else. It all adds to the flavor of the soup. When I start finding it too salty, I turn away from airliners.net and go eat some candy. (...But I'm always drawn back to my "airline porn" website!) I was interested to read the article...Jump to post

While seeing them will probably be like rubbing salt in a wound, couldn't any of you Delta 757-300 flyers please post some photos of the interiors? Seats? Overhead bins? The works! I want to see these new interiors -- down to the last tiny detail!
Thank you in advance.
747classic, Thank you for educating me on the "customizable" 787 door slides. I had no idea it was possible for an airline to do that. It certainly shows how important weight savings is to an airplane operator. I will gladly pass along this information to my cabin safety instructors. I appreciate th...Jump to post
Hello smarter people than I, In my B787 cabin training class today, we were discussing why Doors 1 L/R and 3 L/R are single lane slide-rafts while Doors 2 L/R and 4 L/R are dual lane. Apparently, all doors are the same width (is this true?). We were advised that the door hinges at Doors 1 and 3 prot...Jump to post
That's a 757?? I am so impressed with Delta right now. Good for them for making this investment in their 757 fleet.
