Seems like it would be unlikely for this to be a CX aircraft due to the presence of a SATCOM dome at the front. CX have no 77W with the front SATCOM dome, and it seems unlikely that one would be installed. It’s a stock photo of an AA 77W prior to tail painting, not the plane in question. ah that ma...Jump to post
I can try the imgur route later when I have time. Hey man did you ever figure out how to upload the photo? Lol sorry, I'm just quite curious to see how the cabin looks like from the inside https://imgur.com/a/SCiSRiR Hoping this works!!! Keep in mind this wasn’t a scheduled viewing as the plane had...Jump to post
I keep wondering though, when the cabin depressurized (for whatever reason), why didn't O2 masks in the cabin deploy? If they did, then surely the FA's and pax should been able to grab them and remain aware of what was going on, right? O2 masks for the pax only last around 15 minutes- just enough f...Jump to post

https://i.imgur.com/KnQaN5f.jpg Terrible picture but it looks unchanged. Assume just removed the Virgin logos. May hoof it over to B gates for closer look. It seems the engines were repainted. The original 493 had a gradient from pink to purple on the engines. This appears to just be purple.Jump to post
The catering is just sly editing from the vlogger. The truth is that each main meal is larger and desert is served separately (like in business class). To coin a phrase, fake news. In terms of loads, this happens from time to time. I once flew on an SIA 747-400 from SIN to SYD with just 14 pax on b...Jump to post
Hey everybody, I recently took a short trip to Detroit, and was aiming to keep the costs as low as possible. Of course, my first idea was Spirit. I soon found out that Delta was actually cheaper than Spirit going to Detroit. Of course, I was pleased at another chance to fly Delta, especially one of ...Jump to post
This i probably old news, but the claim that MCAS relied on only one AoA sensor was a deliberate design choice in order to avoid extra training for pilots, since new two-sensor features would require just that, is horrifying. https://youtu.be/QytfYyHmxtc?t=35m23s That video really over-dramatized t...Jump to post
There are still a good amount of private/government A340s according to https://www.planespotters.net/production-list/Airbus/A340
Qatar had two A340-600s that were withdrawn from service about a week ago.
The MAX has rather prominent wingtips, which makes it very easy to identify against any other aircraft type. You think people will not know? Just takes a few examples of people refusing to board to put the anxiety into others too. Managers might by angry if someone arrives, but they prefer to pay f...Jump to post
And once again many American posters on this board just gloss over the issue. Excuses abound, it'll all be fine etc etc. :sarcastic: People often compare this to other air disasters where the passengers forget over time. However, most of those were before the 24/7 news, social media etc. I've heard...Jump to post
Given that this is becoming a common occurrence during emergency evacuations, should there be a way of completely locking out all (passenger use) overhead lockers by the crew before landing? It may also slightly lessen the chance of lockers opening and bags falling out during a hard landing. I imag...Jump to post
Can’t see the image Try searching the username if it won’t work. That’s strange. Sorry. Basically, it’s their standard tail, but with different shades of blue. The green is also gone.

It is showing fine for me... This is the link for the photo posted: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2d9b6ud&s=9#.XMNi2S_My7Y I like this. It looks better than the actual livery at first glance, probably due to the fact that the blue swoop is much closer to the grey belly than the actual livery.Jump to post
Yesterday the FA on my Spirit flight to LGA announced we were going to Orlando before he corrected himself a few seconds later. That's about the funniest thing I've seen so far. Also Spirit's die hard efforts to get you to apply to their 9 dollar fare club.Jump to post
the pilot flying had the plane in a half assed Immelmann turn before the Pitots came back online. ( And that is the point where the kill was effected.) From there on the plane teetered between airspeed valid and invalid which caused the stall alarm to appear as inverted. ( forward speed slower, AoA...Jump to post

Wait wait wait. Lots of assumptions in the original post, we are not MDs and even if we are we haven't seen the pan nor assisted to the scene.

Are you suggesting that a pilot with 6,000 hours wouldn't know the difference between what it feels like when his aircraft is climbing, vs. when it's pointed straight at the ground?

Makes me wonder if there is something to do with the somewhat new aircraft type, knowing the MAX has newer instrumentation than the NG models.

Either a publicity stunt or a fake photo (or both). I realize Cathay themselves have shared this photo, which makes it just seem more like one of those two things to me.

Folks, stranger things have happened. While I believe the probability of staying with airbus is quite high, I’d love for them to pick up 737’s on their next order.
