It’s not “fake” licenses, it’s about “fake” skills. This crew certainly had “fake” skills. I recently came across some screenshots I had saved on an old hard drive... back when I was playing flight sim 2000 in middle school. 380 knots at 3,000 feet with flaps 2, 4 white and 2 dots left on an approa...Jump to post
Looks a lot like Air Berlin to me... except with 2 guitar picks for a logo. Or maybe snake fangs.
I really feel like the right guitar pick needs to overlap the left one to form a "W." Left overlapping right doesn't look like a letter to me.
[photoid][/photoid] EWR is considered a B6 base now. But PBI, RSW and TPA aren't. Those added flights are non-hub to non-hub, although with cases spiking here in Florida and at least one state talking about a mandatory 14-day quarantine for anyone entering the state from Florida B6 may end up not s...Jump to post

A little right rudder and that would have been a solid landing.
You’d think they’d teach that in pilot school.

B6 is a bug compared to UA...and they could easily treat them as such if this were any other times. It's a ballsy move by B6 and is going to drain a lot of their cash. I'm surprised their creditors (including the US govt if they took a loan) aren't looking at this with interest and maybe a bit of d...Jump to post
CLE-LGW was a 757 all the way back in, what, 1998?Jump to post
Nope. But it is kinda cool to me how many 1960’s-era jet tugs there are out there. You can find pics of DC-8’s and 707’s being pushed by the exact same tug as an A220 now. When I worked the ramp we had one such tug. I forget who builds them, but they’re the standard OG tug from the late 60’s I think...Jump to post

Maybe someone with actual experience in a 320 can comment, but in the instances I’ve seen where we have mis-managed energy in a descent, throwing the gear *early* is an easy, effective way to increase drag, slow down, and get down. Gear speed in my airplane is a full 50 knots faster than flap speed ...Jump to post
The damage to the engine nacelles is uniform on both sides, so they obviously contacted pavement without the landing gear being extended. The RAT being deployed tells me the aircraft lost all AC power, possibly from damage to the IDG’s. That kind of damage to the engine could also rupture oil lines ...Jump to post
If you think Trump will allow a major airline to go under and have 50,000+ unemployed on the streets in an election year.... think not. There are already 43 million unemployed now. No kidding.

What platue? The boarding shave been climbing steadily. We hit 200000 last week. Will prolly hit 300000 this weekend. Wow, 300,000. Somebody pinch me. It’s a big increase from 50,000. We’re looking for growth. We never hit 50,000. And yes, an increase is good, but right now it’s still hovering arou...Jump to post
I wouldn't count on Memorial Day or even July 4th leading to marked increases in leisure air travel.

Pilots for these must be chosen for their fastidiousness. All those perfectly spaced straight lines...

I have really not cared for the behaviour of B6 management during this crisis. 1) Going to extraordinary lengths to avoid giving refunds. 2) Trying to get an exemption to CARES act service requirements 3) pulling this stunt with hours.

I look at the DC-8 and the amount of exits it had, it kind of cracks me up. By modern standards it just looks like they added exits all over the place, and they were different types.

Honest question: What purpose does the BOS hub serve that can’t be duplicated at JFK? Obviously BOS O/D, but what else? If the old answer was JFK was too crowded and not enough slots, the downturn created by this crisis may solve that issue and make BOS redundant. If you can make money at both, you...Jump to post
Also, Starlux in Taiwan. In the USA, I suspect that Frontier (all leased---the remaining owned frames were sold and leased back near the end of 2018), Sun Country (all leased), and American (highly in debt) are in big trouble.

With MSP and DTW always being cited as too close to each other, I suspect people just consider the Midwest to be interchangeable.

Could MSP, BOS, JFK/LGA, & SLC not theoretically do everything that DTW does today...? Yes. I never could figure out having two hubs (MSP and DTW) so close together. No other airline does that. What are you talking about? DTW-MSP is 530 miles. United has LAX and SFO (337mi) and IAD and EWR (212...Jump to post
