Re: Qantas plans 3 Project Sunrise research flights in Q4 2019 using 787-9's, final decision on PS by end of 2019

A & B are essentially gonna have to spend a significant sum of money developing a subset which no one but QF are going to buy. If its 20 frames, even just $100m in development is $5m /frame (beyond the original development amortisation put into the price of each airframe). They aren't gonna dev...

What I mean by not integrated is that the LUS fleet resides in Sceptre while the LAA fleet is still in Sabre.

It’s all moving to Sceptre

Exactly, so they aren't integrated yet

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2019

No such thing as "LAA" anymore, only American. Plus most routes are now operated by a mix of LAA and LUS aircraft. AA Tech Ops has not integrated the fleets so LAA and LUS fleets still exist. The planes have been intergrated, but not the workforce, but some cities they are cross utilized....

Re: AA Fleet Updates - 2019

Completely false stats. Minus the grounded 737 MAX's, AA's current narrowbody fleet includes the following: 133x A319 48x A320 219x A321 9x A321 NEO 304x 737-800 34x 757 (although a bunch of these only fly international or Hawaii). Apparently, you didn't read his post. He is posted only LAA aircraf...

Re: American Airlines MD-80 Retirement Discussion Thread

So what ended up being the final flight for N501AA? N501AA flew from LBB as AA2232... it's actually sitting in TUL now and not ROW... along with N9621A.... not sure why those went to TUL and not ROW, they might be getting them prepared for something special. Maybe someone here knows why... Employee...

If you Google "Air 123" all of the search results are for JL 123 as well

Re: Media: AA refuses to supply IG with a spare part causing delays in SFO

A lot of it is political. Air Italy is owned by an ME3 carrier. And there is an issue with them running an end around on US to Europe flights using IG. And like I said DL did the same thing in the past to an ME3 carrier. I doubt it was political. You have to remember the people making these decisio...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - March 2018

Hopefully this is an easy one for you all: I just got a diecast Air New Zealand 777-200ER with the registration ZK-DKG. I see that all current ANZ 777-200ER registrations start with ZK-OKx. What as DKG re-registered as? Did they simply change the D to an O? http://cdn.feeyo.com/pic/20090109/20090109...

I know the A359's MLG are " toe down " but I'm wondering if the A35J' s 6 wheel
bogies will be toe up like the 777's or toe down like their sister ?


The inboard MLG on the A380 are also 3 truck bogies (6 wheel) but are toe down so that could give a preview of the A35J.
