If you were the CEO of SAA and had the choice of choosing the fleet, what would you choose. If I were the CEO I'd close down the company, sell all of the fleet except for one A346, and use the funds to make it a private jet. I also wouldn't have to worry about JHB's altitude, seeing as I'd need to ...Jump to post
Sounds like some typical corporate head butting that WF decided to take public. What is WF losing by not getting those planes back on time? Is there some other airline that is on pins and needles waiting for the plane? Like the good ole days of VHS tapes when someone just happened to return a hot n...Jump to post
One of Tarom's A310 stored at OTP is apparently getting a new owner, current reg EK31001. Didn't look like it was converted to cargo. According to Planespotters, the Tarom A310 pair is supposedly going to a new airline "Armenia Airways." https://m.planespotters.net/airline/Armenia-AirwaysJump to post
Almost definitely an Avianca Brand, here's a view of their curtains from business class.
If it's an A318, would we know for sure it's AV and not Avianca Brazil?

You mean like the guy who was killed while being subdued? That is a very slippery slope to walk. The ‘guy who was killed while being subdued’? Wanna include some specifics in your reply?

IMHO, Given the California Salvadorean/Central American demographics AV should be studying by now SAL-SJC/ONT plus SAL-PHX/LAS. As a Bay Area Salvadoreño (Who's actually taking SFO-SAL next week), Avianca would be much better off going to OAK, the area has much larger Central America demos than SJC...Jump to post
I think awareness is more important than is given credit. I'm a teenager who lives in the Bay Area, and I can say with certainty that a large percentage of my peers haven't even heard of Virgin America.

Until last October, there was a Pan Am A300 flying for Brazilian cargo carrier Sterna Linhas, but it went off the runway at Recife and has sat there ever since. This was their only aircraft at the time, and the accident esentially killed the airline before even a year in the air.Jump to post
Why is Gol paying? Both the NTSB and the Brazilian investigators agreed (to some extent) that there should have been far more blame put on the (government owned) ATC and Embraer pilots.Jump to post
Confirmed: Saudia also has electronic ban.

I know that some Skywest CRJs painted in the Skywest liveries do runs for the big 3 sometimes, but Skywest does have quite a few more flights operated seperate from other brands compared to other regionals. Those are what these planes are usually for.Jump to post
One of the passengers mentions that they had "too much fuel" to land back in city... This is clear a bs excuse by BA to not have to waste fuel, they could easily burn it off on the way back, or go to another London airport. But just curious, how much would the fuel waste costs have been co...Jump to post
It went to Family Airlines in 1993 an02155860215586d Family only had this one aircraft and their business model was to fly internationally on charters with a butt in every seat and very low fares.

Seems less and less likely that the Virgin style will live through Alaska.

I noticed that in the world of 767, there are quite a few more passenger to cargo converted 767-200s than 200(ER)s, even though I don't believe the 200 sold many more models than the ER. Would there be any major reason that airlines would prefer a default range to an ER? Besides maybe the cost of th...Jump to post
Now we wait for the lawsuits against Airbus, ATR, Fokker, and MD for daring to have aircraft operated by Iran, and Saudi, Turkey, Kuwait, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc for daring to be Muslim and operate western aircraft.

December 20 LH839, probably an E-190
December 20 LH712, probably a 747-400
December 21 PR469, probably an A330-300
These are all just the normally scheduled ones, they could change at any point, although most likely these will be the ones.
In the narrowbody short range market, the niches aren't quite as significant. Even if an airline has a number with specific capacity, range, etc they want, they can easily settle for something different in the narrowbody market, and this is not true at all in the wide body market. For example, if an...Jump to post

It seems to be a VIP based in Dallas. According to planespotters it owns 1 other 752 as well as a 734. I found a broken newssite with the headline appearing in google, showing that the company has used their other 757 for the Coyotes in previous years. https://img.planespotters.net/photo/569 ... 569...Jump to post

I flew the BAe146 with Swiss a couple of weeks ago on FLR-ZRH. Quite a fun plane to fly on, actually.
This is certainly an odd one not just a panel swap
There were some strange winglet procedures at Ohare due to the two wing strikes a couple weeks ago. An Austrian 763 had to borrow from United: https://s22.postimg.org/esihkxwip/2016_ ... _02_31.jpg And Lufthansa couldn't find any spare right winglets for an A346: https://s3-ap-northeast-1.amazonaws....Jump to post

United was taxiing after coming from Beijing, and Lufthansa was empty and being towed.
I loved the video. It was a bit scary as someone that desires to be a pilot, but I think the idea of freedom that was in it quenched my fears a bit. Thanks for the share.Jump to post
