My guesses, if said rumors are true: LGW-RSW Seasonal LGW-PVR LHR-PDX LHR-BDL One potential route that is never discussed is LHR-SAT, which could be run 2x/wk paired with year-round LHR-CHS 2x/wk. In fact, SAT doesn’t have any TATL service at all, which is a surprise given its tourism and military ...Jump to post
WoodysAeroimag Sorry, Woody, but I find that coming to this thread from time to time, I am looking for news on the topic, and not endless photos of parked 737 Maxs. I appreciated the effort, work , and results that you put in and achieve, but I would prefer "NEWS" of Boeing 737MAX Deliver...Jump to post
So for the 797 to work, they would need to do the 797, re-engine the 787 and in that way make it more capable and take it closer to the 777X or the A350. What is the advantage in this? Re-engine the 787, pushes Airbus to re-engine the A350, which will hurt the 777-9 badly. Consider the 777X dead by...Jump to post

Quick question: did Austin have to do anything to attract British Airways to establish service to Heathrow? I heard today that the Austin business community made financial promises so that service would start (clearly successful) and I wanted to see if that was correct. Thanks! This was sent to me ...Jump to post

Do I understand MentourPilot correctly? At 2:20 he asks to trim the nose further down? And isn't that what the FO does? Exactly what does this prove - that if you allow the trim (or cause the trim) to move nose down there could be a point where you can't save the plane? I believe that they were &qu...Jump to post
I think people are putting too much on one spot or another. There seems to be a lot going on here. I am a 737 typed pilot with 15000 hrs, i just want to highlight one possible scenario. The people saying the manual trim didnt work... Do we know that they tried the trim wheel? Im not blaming lack of...Jump to post
No matter what the topic, when I scroll the page down and zeke's name appears I think, "finally, someone who knows what the hell they are talking about."
95% of statistics are made up.
This doesn't makes sense. Can't the new landing gear support a stretch? It seems the 359 could benefit from a simple stretch that sacrifices range. What gives? Is the 358 really the base and they don't want to do a double stretch? People swear up and down the 358 was a shrink.Jump to post
And there is no way A380 will shut down before (the 747 and 767) and they are available as passengers frames but no one needs them. Boeing still offers the 767-300ER and 747-8 on their price list, but if you actually tried to order them, Boeing would politely decline and point you to the 787-8 and ...Jump to post
And there may well be some irony if, depending on the freight market and the disposition of the balance of the EK A380 order, the venerable 747 ends up outliving the A380 which was meant to supplant it.
El Al is doing what most airlines are doing - replacing B744s busy routes for long and thin routes operated by more efficient airplanes, like the 787. El Al will indeed loose capacity in the JFK route, but the airline is adding new direct flights to the US (LAS & SFO) with 787, in addition to o...Jump to post
I just bought a ticket from DL on a 787, and other people here can do the same. It was operated by VS, and I think the cabin service was better than on DL metal. Delta owns 787s and A380s. They own 49% of their JV partners 787s and A380s. Haha. I hadn't thought of this. It seems that DL has access ...Jump to post
It appears that 787 operates similar to a 767/777 when it comes to AC ramp operations. But I wondered, was there any consideration to increasing the electrical/power consumption capabilities so that on-board AC could be utilized and therefore, conditioned air connections could be gradually and gener...Jump to post
I think it was a bad decision (my opinion, of course) to purchase the a380. The 747-8i made perfect sense as it would have been a fairly painless acquisition and could have been purchased for an excellent price. It is possible that Boeing took it for granted that, of course, BA was going to take the...Jump to post
Current look is pretty classy. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. https://www.axios.com/donald-trump-new-air-force-one-paint-job-b3ff40b3-f8da-448e-9023-a1ea73067488.html The current look is extremely dated and didn't look good way back when it was first applied. Yep - it looked awesome on the VC-137...Jump to post
Besides all the talk but personally I think N306FE should be preserved or put in a museum. It was the aircraft involved in the FDX705 incident. The history of that aircraft is so rich and the importance of it is so high. It shows the dedication of flight crews around the world to their profession a...Jump to post
On another thread we have one member campaigning for an ultra-weight-reduced 787-8 to target the MoM space. Now we have a campaign for a heavier 787-8 to target the traditional carrier role. End result: I have a headache. I have noticed this too. There is a group of people on A.net that think the 7...Jump to post
What I find interesting about the AA order is the paradigm that AA is changing on the 788. Many on a.net scratched their heads when AA put their 788's at ORD and used them TATL saying it can't be a good CASM, etc. as it's not a 763 replacement. Now, AA has doubled down on this 788 TATL philosophy w...Jump to post
Congrats to Boeing. Ten years ago I would have bet Delta would be buying mostly Boeing and American Airbus widebodies. Go figure. I guess we will soon be seeing comparison posts about who made the right choice!
I also think that these 788s will be getting the 789 updates: Dash 8 changes
... Where are you CaptainX ?? All is well now! CaptainX?! There's a blast from the past - but you must admit, he did have a full 15 minutes of fame! But the 787 is actually entering middle age. In about a decade B will have to refresh the product -- I imagine the 787-10 will get increased range and...Jump to post
IMO - Boeing should never have done 777X - the base frame/technology is just too heavy. Instead of designing a new Wing for the 777 they should have designed an XL wing/wingbox for the 787 and made an -10ER (8,000 NM Range) and -11 (7,000 NM range - 10M longer than -10ER - possible with the require...Jump to post
"We are still talking to Emirates and quite honestly they are probably the only one in the marketplace who can take a minimum of six A380s a year for a period of eight to 10 years," he said. "If we can't work out a deal with Emirates I think there is no choice but to shut down the pr...Jump to post

Actually, Austin is the faster growing city and will surpass San Antonio in the coming decade. Austin also has a large number of younger, wealthy travelers that San Antonio seems to lack. As a consequence, Austin is getting their second London non-stop with Norwegian next March. I'd also say the odd...Jump to post
