Hi, Does anyone keep a log book of all the flights you have flown? If you do, what information do you keep. Recently I decided to recreate my log book from my memory. I checked my passport record, my travel photos and listed all the flights I have been on. I record the date I fly. Origin city and de...Jump to post
Flying gets me home to see my family.
Folks, Here is why. Red China believes if a country's "flag carrier" flies to both China and Taiwan, it creates "Two China" or "Taiwan Independence," which is a big NO NO for China. Therefore, they request airlines NOT to fly to Taiwan, or form a shadow company to service Taiwan. Thus, there is Jap...Jump to post
EVA's "Economy Delux" is a four-class configuration.
You have Economy, Economy Delux, Business Class,
and First Class. Does any other airlines do this?
Here is some food for thought. If you were the head of state of your country, what type of aircraft would you choose to be your "Air Force One?" My own choice would be Airbus 380. I can have extra room for my staff, conference rooms, exercise facilities, and a fully equipped situation room for war t...Jump to post
My longest flight. On Northwest Airlines. PVD (Providence, RI) -> DTW (Detroit) -> LAX (Los Angeles) -> TPE (Taipei). This flight usually takes 22 hours. But that day the head wind was pretty strong from LAX to Taipei. So we made an unscheduled landing in Hawaii. It took 30 hours all together. I hat...Jump to post
I think this is not really a Boeing vs. Airbus issue, as someone suggested this is some sort of "Anti-Airbus" scheme. The bottom line is still up to the airlines. Airbus or Boeing or whatever plane manufacturer can design any huge plane they want, so huge you can add a football field on it! <i...Jump to post
Hi Everyone, Airbus promised A380 to be like a flying cruise ship, with lots of amenities like a bar, a gym... lots of extra room to make flying more enjoyable. While I believe this would be nice to have for passengers, I am wondering, for airlinesit is always the bottom line that matters. So, my qu...Jump to post
For the same political reason, both China Airlines
and EVA Air are not allowed to fly into Narita Airport
If you look carefully, they don't carry Taiwan's (ROC)
national flag on their planes either, so they can fly to
other countries with less objections from China.
Hi, Thanks for all the input. This is my analysis: Airplane: 777 vs. 747, I guess I don't really have to worry about it according to most of you guys input, although I have never flown in a 777 before and would like to give it a try. Aiport For me, I live in Cupertino. So the drive to SFO is about 4...Jump to post
Hi, I fly to Taipei from San Francisco a lot, and I always fly EVA Air. Since American Airlines are starting new non-stop services from San Jose to Taipei, I am thinking about giving it a try since I live closer to San Jose. The thing is, AA uses Boeing 777 for this new service, while EVA uses Boein...Jump to post
Autrian Airlines has an Airbus 321 with special color
scheme, named "Pinzgau, 1000 Years Austria."
It has many faces painted on the plane, with Mozart
on the tail wing. I am wondering if anyone knows who
the rest of the people painted on that plane are?
