Re: Flyadeal cancels 737 max order

Correct. I’ve posted a number of times now that a software fix was begun immediately after Lion Air. I don't think a lot of people understand this. It was not a case of Boeing being "caught", it was more like an undiscovered anomaly was discovered and Boeing was racing to fix it. I am cer...

Re: Airbus Launches A321XLR

Great move by Airbus. To be frank, they seem to be more in-tune with the market needs and are fast to respond to customer requirements by strategically refining their product line. I'm particularly curious about the XLR's specs and how it will evolve. I am sure other airlines (including one or two U...

DC-9-21. A short body with the large wings and engines from the -41. Developed specifically for SAS to be used on shorter airfields, especially in Norway.

I think that LCC is a relative term in Japan. Don't expect Norwegian-style cheap fares. This is just meant to put some dots in Europe. I see AMS, DUS, MXP, FCO as potential destinations but on less than daily frequencies. Those destinations where a flight makes sense but not with a low density B787...

Re: Is DCA the closest thing to Kai Tak in the US?

I’d say TGU is the closest to Kai Tak regarding low-altitude 45-degree turns and steep banks on final approach. Plus one of the shortest runways for an international airport makes TGU a very challenging airport to land. A couple of videos: https://youtu.be/v_z5HtME9n8 https://youtu.be/cmZKcwrzKvo H...

No background on the 737... aka the most widely used commercial plane? The A320 is a great plane - but excluding the 737’s role in aviation history is disappointing. Fully agree. I would also add that excluding the 727 is also a disappointment considering the A320 was originally designed by Airbus ...
