You can get that back by spritzing a little formaldehyde into the cabin.
Here is some information the original flight 2822 July 2nd NRT-PEK the crew received a EICAS about 20 minutes into the flight executed the diversion and returned safely to NRT. UA maintenance at NRT spent around 3-4 hours working on the aircraft. UA also swapped the PEK and SFO aircraft to get PEK ...Jump to post
Please discuss TSA numbers in this thread. General virus discussion should be in non-aviation. Lightsaber Sorry, with all due to respect but what should we discuss here? COVID is the more than overwhelming context of these numbers. Are we only allowed to post: the numbers go up, the numbers go down?Jump to post

Nothing is being "scrubbed" from Google Maps. It all depends on the time of day the picture was taken. Go to DFW, LAX, MIA, LHR, SYD. All full of planes. FRA is empty of airplanes - that never happens at any time of the day. These are composite pictures taken at different times and differ...Jump to post
They take image sets from low flying planes - and they take them in a way that they have the same spot from different view points and at different times. Any object that isn't in all pictures is rendered out by their algorithm. If you look at the highways around FRA there are also no cars (as in man...Jump to post
OMG, even all interstates and highways are free of cars, tooJump to post
Today maybe was the last scheduled flight of an A380 by Lufthansa, they are all parked now. And it might be the end (which was originally planned for 2023 at latest) 2023 was the reduction of the fleet, not the retirement. They are retiring 6, they will still retain a fleet of 8 (unless the virus c...Jump to post
It took the airline industry 2 years to come back after 2008 - this is something way worse. It will affect demand and economy much more. And future travel restriction (because of a still active thread of the virus in certain parts of the world) will last for months, at least.Jump to post

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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post

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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...

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.
