Would this scheme apply to airlines that fly Boeing jets too? Of course it would, just like the compensation could be put towards new Boeing aircraft. Removing cheap aircraft from the marketplace will benefit both manufacturers. Well that's not certain. Usually there would be rules and enforcement ...Jump to post
There are programs like OASIS and Sabre AirVision that show anticipated lines, help calculate landings/cycles/block hours, etc. The systems will then produce files and reports for things like schedule submissions, slot requests, crew planning, etc. Air vision hasn’t been used in like 10 years You m...Jump to post
While this was not on a flight that crashed, I flew on N739PA with a group of high school students in March 1988. We took a picture of the group in front of a window with the nose of the aircraft (and the name, Clipper Maid of the Seas) visible. The flight from FRA to JFK featured the film 'Octopus...Jump to post

BBD has had huge losses in their rail business. It is killing the company. Is that true? Some on a.net seem to have blamed the divestiture of the CSeries on the CSeries itself, that being what was killing the company. They have kept the rail business, and although I have always been an Alstom fan (...Jump to post

Now to my second part. Why do A.net members love DL so much among the US3? Brutally reliable ontime arrivals and departures, a decent inflight product in domestic Y and a better than decent one in domestic F, streaming video across most if not all of the mainline fleet, a club experience that is fa...Jump to post

That isn't an unveiling - it is Lady Thatcher's reaction to the "World Tails" scheme that she thought diminished the value of "British Airways." Can't say that I disagree with her sentiment.Jump to post

In reading the last couple of posts I was reminded of some reading I did years ago that mentioned the Lockheed tanker/airliner project which was designated as the L-193. The design concept was similar to what would become the VC-10 and IL-62. The decision process that led Lockheed to not pursue this...Jump to post

I was in and out of there three or four times in the 80's leading groups - our usual routing was PHL-JFK-FRA on a LH DC-10 (great ride). I remember getting a bagged lunch as we went outside to climb the stairs as a preview to the dinner served on the actual TATL leg. The building was a dump - access...Jump to post

The aircraft involved in the LGA incident was older at the time of the event, had far more cycles, and sustained substantial damage from a VERY hard landing.... By the way, can someone explain this: Plane crashes through wall, hits car, gets put back in service. Meanwhile, didn't the LGA plane just ...Jump to post

And the reality is - why bother to fly into Delaware. Between AA at PHL and WN at BWI (not to mention all of the others) there is no need to be at a third rate airport in a state that is losing business faster than it can count. Du Pont doesn't exist any more, MBNA is gone, and Chrysler and GM packe...Jump to post

To give WW their due, I had to book a quick roundtrip from BWI/CDG (I could have done DL from PHL but it was about twice the price) for work. I booked the highest priced ticket possible - included a 'meal' with beverage and an after-meal beverage, one checked bag, one overhead bag, trip cancellation...Jump to post

Once you are through security (if you originating at STL) or just connecting, T2 is actually fairly nice.

Kudos to the team at Southwest for what was, from my own experience as a passenger today, a seamless cutover.
