Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

So there we have it, Boeing CEO now saying RTS "should" be in November... I do wonder when he will say December, then 1st quarter 2020 and so on. As we go along, the lack of slippage is a good sign that the estimate will hold. It's firming up day by day. Sounds like the EASA's hand will b...

Re: B 797 - One pilot cockpit?

I think how "well" IT works in the cockpit has been proven quite well lately.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q2 2019

If this what we consider an abberation and isolated case at Boeing somehow became a default practice at Airbus too, then God help us, we will need to travel by sea again until the mess is cleared up! Well, there is the monthly Queen Mary 2 departure from New York to Southampton but I have a hard ti...

Re: Report: BER Oct 2020 opening on shaky grounds

It is time to shut down the program, demolish it, and assign to a new bidder under a completely new oversight structure. Simple rule, any government employee,/politician involved in the prior effort is blacklisted from the new project. No input from the prior agencies. Oh, while at it, 3 runways, 2...

And actually nothing new besides that the Oct 2020 date is in danger of slipping yet again.

Re: Passenger gets plane to himself

My wife had this once: she arrived internally in PHL and was the only one on her 6:30pm flight PHL->BWI (yes, you can fly that). Main reason for her loneliness: the 4pm flight was much delayed and still in PHL, too. Funny thing: the 4pm flight was a CRj-2000, my wife's flight a 737 ... so the CRj-20...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

This is exactly why I call the actual sensors redundancy method an industry width issue. Even the 4 sensors of the A350 will travel trought the same environment. If that environment is so harsh to froze one sensor in perfect condition then the others are certainly close to froze very soon. Adding m...

Re: 737 MAX Order Status

I wonder if Boeing and/or some airlines will launch some kind of campaign once the fix is done in order to restore confindence on the passengers side... I think the Paris Air Show is a make or break event for Boeing to begin the long process of restoring confidence in the MAX program. Hoping they h...

Re: Is the A380 a "hard lander"?

My bumpiest landing (of maybe 60) was definitely on a A380 - even the flight attendants who were sitting in my sight had a surprised expression in their face for a short moment.

On the other hand, I exactly sat where user a320fan wrote - above or just behind the wing in the lower cabin.

Today (Jun-03, 2017) is the 5th anniversary of the planned opening of Berlin's new airport (BER). Well, it yet has to open. Currently they expect it for 2018.
