Not the 200th frame, there are quite a number of skipped MSNs. MSN 18 shows "on order", MSN's 24, 37, 53, 60, 91, 97, 104, 118, 129, 185, 196, 212, 245, 246, 260, 261 (out of 263 as of today) have been skipped. So, MSN 200 is the 188th built. Can someone explain to a newbie why they skip ...Jump to post
It's a dangerous environment on the ramp. Feel bad for the individual's family.

AC uses gate 51 when they bring their 767-300s into the new concourse.

Just saw this article: https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/06/17/boeing-to-provide-parts-for-some-british-airways-airbus-jets.html Sounds like a move of desperation to find new sources of income in the face of the 737MAX issues. Am I wrong? Would Airbus be able to stop or prevent Boeing from such a move?Jump to post
New Mexico connecting to Canada was likely on Delta Connection. Add in all the outsourced baggage handlers and it is almost certain that her bag was destroyed by a third party contractor and not a Delta employee.

So, if the MCAS repairs do not go as planned, is there a way the airlines can back out without substantial loses?Jump to post
Once again the 787 is in the spotlight with safety issues regarding its landing gear. https://www.airlive.net/alert-faa-says- ... n-repairs/Jump to post
Well, that's changes the whole story!Jump to post
Not a good sign for the future of the 737 Max's return. Even though it's only for 10 aircraft, I'm sure any cancellation for the MAX is going to be felt by Boeing.

Seems like they are hooked by A330 low leasing and purchasing prices and efficiency for TATL and European Leisure network.

I counted 4 times that the pilot hit the hotel employee. If he was only suspended for this incident, he got off lucky. He should have been fired and arrested for assault. Not a good look for Lion Air.Jump to post
What's the deal with the CS100/A220 "humpback whale" noise? I never heard an A220 from close, so I don't know what noise you are talking about.

And then there are A330-200s that will need to be replaced too. Airbus does not have a same-size aircraft to replace the A332. A359 is too large as a replacement. A339 does not have the range for the longest A332 route, and arguably it's less of a "new aircraft" than 787. It is possible t...Jump to post
