Besides Icelandair and UA, which airlines use Scimitar Blended Winglets on their 757s?
I remember it like it was yesterday. Back then AF had 2 flights from GIG on most days, AF443 operated by a 744 and AF 447 with the 332. As I was scheduled to fly on AF447 about a month after the accident, I immediately changed my flight to be on the 744 flight instead. I remember telling the agent ...Jump to post
I was wondering why the A330s weren’t grounded after the pitot tube issues?
Even before the AF crash, many airlines reported incidents but the plane was not grounded the time the pitot tubes were replaced.
What’s wrong with manufacturers these days ???Jump to post
The 'oldish' A330neo that's only just entered service? Along with the 'oldish' 777X yet to do so? EK clearly not considering it a downgrade. Sorry, but Airbus hardly updated the A330Neo interior. A complete basic cabin update is part of the NEO program (Airspace). So you should maybe explain your p...Jump to post
I believe KLM and TUIfly also hold fifth freedom rights on this route, correct me if I'm wrong. Anyway, there aren't that many airlines in the Netherlands Antilles and on top of that a lot of people traveling between the islands travel by boat. It's really a limited market. KLM and Tui do not have ...Jump to post

The 757/767/744/737NG/777/A330/A340 seemed to have a smooth EIS (I guess there were teething problems though) but it seems that modern airliners had either delays (A380, 787), either incidents (A380, 787, A320Neo), or worse for the 737Max. Only the A350 seems to have a fine EIS (too soon to say for ...Jump to post

Will also be interesting to see if their FDR data has the same mismatches as Lion Air.
Pretty sure if even one of these had been an AA or European-operated plane that crashed, they would've already been grounded. The ET crash is far more alarming to me than JT. JT admitted faults with the plane on prior flights and while they'd seemed to have it together of late, we all know about th...Jump to post
Well, don’t forget ET also crashed a 737NG at BEYJump to post
Usually when I book a flight I try to book one with an aircraft I’ve never been on, or a new type. With the 737MAX, I had some doubts after JT610. Now, with another MAX crash, I will avoid this type until everything is known about the causes, and a fix should be in place on all aircraft if this was...Jump to post

OK, see it now. No sump-drain in the exhaust cone = Rolls Royce.

Sad for the A380

Eilat Ilan And Assaf Ramon Airport is finally open:

Recall that the main reason why airlines bought the 744 at the time was because in the late 1980s and early 1990s, it was the only model that could offer 14 hour endurance. The MD-11 came right after, but was only good for 12-13 and the A343 was too close to the 777. For most of those carriers, the...Jump to post

772's are moving from 280 pax F+J+Y to 320 pax J+PE+Y (Y goes to 3-4-3) and recieve new cabins similar to the 787 cabins. They will be used on the trunk routes to JFK/BKK/LHR/CDG.

DL A333s have more seats than the B77E did pre-refitting. As for LY, a B78X with about 340 seats in J-W-Y+-Y would make great sense for routes like BKK and JFK. The B788 order should be converted to B78X. (In another thread, I surmised what a 337-seat map would look like.) UA is upgrading to a B78X...Jump to post

The 744s will soon exit El Al’s fleet.
Thus, the biggest a/c type they will have in their fleet will be the 772.
I understand that they could increase frequencies, but on the busiest routes (JFK, LHR, CDG), wouldn’t it be important for them to get a bigger a/c than the 772?
I am impressed with their interior! I was expecting something a la NorwegianJump to post
I have noticed that Air China is cheaper than other Chinese airlines (at least from France to China). How come?
