Pan Am had at least 18 slot pairs at Heathrow, in terms of passengers Pan Am was number 2 behind British Airways. In 1990 Pan Am's peak long haul schedule was 9 daily transatlantic flights, the other 9 flights where feeder flights, including services to Germany such as Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich...Jump to post
How many times has United made this same announcement? Obviously the livelihoods of the affected carriers employees don’t mean squat. Ask anyone who was at ACA how this goes. I get that the current situation dictates changes, but the ‘Hunger Games’ style of choosing the surviving carrier is no less...Jump to post
20 years ago today, AF4590, a Concorde, crashed at CDG. The cause of the crash was a tire puncture rupturing the fuel tank and causing a fire. 113 people lost their lives that day, which included 4 people on the ground. The tire puncture that caused the crash was due to a Continental Airlines DC-10...Jump to post
Most airlines and most routes will come back with suppressed demand, at least for a while. It's reasonable to think the A380 won't be back AF and LH Air France definitely. But the A380 was practically made for Lufthansa. Their entire business model is a hub and spoke airline. Hmmm, did you forget a...Jump to post
Being in controlled airspace they still need a clearance of some kind, it's just that clearance would be along the lines of "do whatever you want within this block", so not every single turn needs approval. Test flights are often performed in the same way. Enlighten us as to what aircraft...Jump to post

Does this mean that it's gone through the winter season? Why can't UA sustain a single daily SFO-MIA Flight?
Pre merger UA 772 (A+E) were originaly delivered in 1995-2002. Until year 2000, UA still recived 744s actualy. 22 further (from CO) joined the fleet in 2010. The 77Ws were orderd in 2014/2015 because of delays in the supplying the 787-9 to UA (if I remember correctly), aside from the retirement of ...Jump to post
This has to be a joke. Why put airports in there that can’t even handle an A380? People are so gullible.Jump to post
Last Tuesday (April 3rd, 2019), two of my family members were traveling on Qatar airways flight QR537 from Kozhikode, India (CCJ) to DOH, which was operated by an A320 (A7-AHJ) According to my mother, about half way through the 4 hour flight, somewhere over the Arabian sea, the plane started swingi...Jump to post
And why would you assume that those particular countries know more than what they are telling everyone!

The US ie FAA won’t ground them until one falls from the sky in the US. That’s when it’ll become a safety concern. I’m glad others are being proactive instead of reactive. After all we are talking about people’s lives. Aaaaand the FAA grounded the MAX before one fell from the skies in the US. By th...Jump to post
Too much automation to remove human error becoming a problem? Hate to say it but he makes a valid point.

The other thing to consider is, well, LGA. Arriving in an all J class aircraft from overseas into LGA is like rolling into a slum in a Bentley. JFK leaves much to be desired, but it isnt a slum like LaGuardia. As a New Yorker I can tell you (please don't tell anyone, I want to keep this as a secret...Jump to post

Huge failure unless they can fill all those F seats with full fare F passengers......which is doubtful. Upgrades won’t cut it. United definitely knows which thin routes have the proper volume of business passagers to sustain these CRJ 550s. Including current CR9/E175 routes that would be better ser...Jump to post

We know ORD sucks and is draing cash. Yet ET is increasing flights and cancelled LA. Posters here love to bash ORD and claim SFO is the holy grail for ET. I don’t claim this route is making money, but it connects more points west of ORD than west of SFO. I’m sure BOS and DTW would have been better ...Jump to post
Another failed state, like Mexico in the other thread. Now SAA can make a TV spot about how wonderful and cool Cape Town is.

The male FA uniform looks like something Liberace would wear as a flight attendant. I’m sure The Gays are going to get a good chuckle out of seeing The Straights wearing that uniform.

They should have done this when the first A380 was delivered! It's about bloody time that they ditch F. You missed the whole point, they aren’t ditching F. They just aren’t calling it F anymore.
