Thanks! I'll post about my return in the comment section when I get home, but no promises on when it'll be ready since I'm going to LAS a couple days after I get back, and then PHX after that. I'm not too familiar with the runways at BWI, but I think that was my first time landing on 15R. First tim...Jump to post
I wonder what exactly they plan on doing differently? AFAIK WOW was a success until they started adding like 5 destinations per year. Maybe they try to get it to that point and try to grow more sustainably after that.Jump to post
I'm surprised that hadn't already been happening since Cathay Dragon is a subsidiary of CX and an alliance partner with AA.Jump to post
I don’t see why they’d go for a one-stop flight now that nonstops between SIN and LAX are available.Jump to post
I've never taken a DL long haul flight I haven't thoroughly enjoyed (all in Main Cabin). It is becoming very clear Delta's mission to separate themselves from the rest of the US3 as far as their economy product goes. I'm sure Polaris is great if you or your company have $10K, and quite honestly noth...Jump to post
Landing at 10am you should be ahead of most of the European arrivals and I have found ATL's customs and immigration to be very quick. My only connecting experience was on the same ticket, so I can't speak to your situation completely. That being said, giving yourself about 4 hours should be safe and...Jump to post
This is an incredible recovery effort. Side note: I've always assumed part of the reason Air Greenland paints their aircraft bright red is to help locate parts easier if they end up on the Greenland ice.Jump to post
Man, I keep forgetting 2020 is next year and not the distant future.
Anyway, I had always figured VN would be the first to launch US-Vietnam service with their A350 to LAX or SFO. I wish them luck but I'll believe it'll be successful when I see it.
OK, so year over year it would be increased capacity with more frequency. Thanks! Yes. It's nice to see that they can support more than once daily year round now. I'm curious to see if IAD will continue to see the A380 after AF starts removing some from the fleet. I suspect not. I just got notified...Jump to post
N605QX is the first CRJ-700 in the new livery https://www.instagram.com/p/By-wzcbhmEH ... 1s0vka4t9mJump to post
My guess is 5x weekly nonstop IAH-Space Station. Probably on the 788. Some weight restrictions.Jump to post
I came across this nice review of the trailer by a pretty respected simmer, Jeff Favignano: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psZgtalap7Y&list=LLKsll2h9jI3KzUs3Ere4L2Q&index=2&t=0s If you don't have an hour to watch it, here are some key points.

I hope developers are already planning updated versions of their aircraft so I don't have to fly an Orbit 737 for too long! It'll be interesting to see what default jet aircraft are included.

I am personally not sure of the answer to your question. You may have better luck on a sim-devoted website such as flightsim.com or avsim.com.Jump to post

The image looks like it hints at an all-blue or black fuselage, which could look pretty cool. I always welcome new ideas for a livery, so that prospect excites me. However, no text on that page hinted at a new scheme for the fleet, and it almost seemed like that A350 image was inserted at the end as...Jump to post
What's your predicted demand? The flight is out of 757 range, but it seems an A332 (or A338) or a used 763 could fit the bill perfectly. Also couldn't go wrong with a 788.Jump to post
An E175 will be the next aircraft to sport the new livery:

Can we presume that BWI wasn't an option over DCA? Was BWI under the same storm warnings that IAD was? Actually, now that I read that (1) it was a 757 and (2) UA167 had already attempted an approach to IAD, I probably answered my own question. But, I guess my question would be if an approach was no...Jump to post
Just booked a spring break trip: March 4 WN901 BWI-TPA March 9 WN5639 TPA-BWI Of course you can never be sure of the equipment, but I hope to luck out and fly the Max .

So Fiji Airways could decide not to order it since they'd never need it?

My first thought is the weight of this coating on the aircraft. And would Boeing make it an option? So Fiji Airways could decide not to order it since they'd never need it?Jump to post
WN's presence in BWI is 11 years older than theirs in PHL (2004 vs 1993) and except in rare cases it's hard to build up a hub (sorry, focus city) 90 miles from another one regardless of the circumstances. When WN had begun at PHL, the Piedmont/US Airways operation at BWI had fizzled out so WN was al...Jump to post

Looks like at least 11 aircraft in are Star Alliance livery: 73G: N13720. 738: N26210, N76516. 757: N14120. 763: N653UA. 764: N76055. 772: N218UA, N794UA, N76021, N77022, N78017.
