From an old thread, asking abot 783, but applicable to the others: Neither 787 variant will be allowed into DCA, mainly due to weight, and in the case of the 788 and 789, wingspan. Almost the same for LGA, though the 783 should be within the weight limits at LGA, and wingspan-wise, it would fit int...Jump to post
The Amish are different. My grandfather was permanently barred from their communities at least four times.

Our most comparable religious group here in the USA might be the Amish; they know what the modern world looks like, and they choose to live their lives in the old-fashioned way - normally abandoning the use of modern transport included. They do not expect everyone outside their religion to kowtow t...Jump to post
Policy is policy. But I think Delta could have at least acknowledged his service to our country in their denial. Would have been a little classy touch given the predictable publicity of the ordeal. Why? Because he's a 'celebrity'? It wasn't very classy of him to post a second tweet including the sm...Jump to post
The "new & improved" Alitalia looks like they may be simplifying their fleet in the near future. Do the A220, A32x & 787 seem like a good idea for the looong troubled carrier or will Alitalia find yet another way to make a mess of things yet again? https://boeingeek.com/new-alitali...Jump to post

DL has already added more flights from LGA as of June. Since April they were down to 6 departures/day. As of this week, they are up to 21 departures/day. A long way away from the 250+ daily departures they'd normally have at LGA absent COVID19. It will take a while to build that back, but they will...Jump to post

I would hope so, but if issues continue to pop up I wonder how many customers will just decide to buy a different aircraft that doesn't come with this many issues.

Really enjoyed you report." Thank you! Although, I must say I disagree with you on the comfort on DLs 757. 2 days ago I flew JFK-MEX on N686DA in seat 22F, a windowless window seat.

You are right, flightaware includes taxi time whereas FR24 is just flight time. There is no taxi time on the Qantas flight on flightaware so realistically the 2 flights can not be compared fairly with inconclusive data. FR24 shows the SQ flight that day was 17hrs59mins vs the charter flight of Qant...Jump to post
Not the 200th frame, there are quite a number of skipped MSNs.

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.
