If it is mothballed, Boeing would be better off using the extra resources on improving the 787-10 instead. This. I don't think there's even room for 2 competitors (actually 4 if you count A359ULR and the 789) in the ULR market for this generation. Boeing 77L and Airbus A345 combined sold what? 80 u...Jump to post
The whole point of Oasis is to increase seat density, seeing as it isn't changing, the 320s aren't planning to be Oasifyed. As far as I know, there are currently no plans to add power to the LUS 320s (despite bridge saying otherwise) and if they were going to be done by Fall, they would need to be ...Jump to post
Is it just me, or is Trump the first President who seems to be involved in every major airline deal??
Why does everything have to be political nowadays???
And when can we expect to hear Bernie Sanders' and AOC's opinions on this QR-US3 meeting?
I'm looking for an online source that allows you to pick an airport and year, and see what airlines and what aircraft type(s) they flew into that airport. I had stumbled across it once before but couldn't remember the link. Can anyone help me out?
Thank you in advance.
Oh one Boeing mechanic and a qa inspector stamped something false and the news says the whole company is responsible.. just wonderful. Both people were fired. I wonder what's next I’m sorry but the company is responsible. It’s still their airplane and most importantly the “error” was made by Boeing...Jump to post

Cathay Pacific have been taking delivery of a lot of new equipment lately, and still have more than 30 new A350/777X aircraft coming online over the new few years.

Why do so few international airlines serve PHL/Philadelphia? BOS, JFK, EWR, and IAD all have strong presence of European flag carriers and a few others. Is PHL just the 5th wheel of the Northeast for international traffic? I would think a metropolitan area of 6 million would have more options for TA...Jump to post
Whatever happened to Northwest's SEA-HKG route? I flew that in 1990 on a 742.Jump to post
If none of these 789s end up going to LH, I wonder if we'll still see another 789 order (or A339) to replace some of the A343s on the long-thin routes. I would think the A359 is overkill for several of the A343s routes: FRA - SAN/TPA/NKG/MAA.Jump to post
If the guidelines for the women's art contest are an indicator, looks like bigger font U N I T E D on the fuselage with a tail design already picked out. Hope it's not another lame eurowhite w/ tail stripes me-too-ism a la Aer Lingus/Lufthansa.Jump to post
With some people going as far as speculating that Delta CEO Ed Bastian may be playing Boeing on launching the 797, to get a better deal from Airbus for more aircraft, why is it that many have suspected a Delta/Boeing feud in recent years? What started this rumor of poor business relations in the fir...Jump to post
...but Joon is supposedly going away, so???? They are. A320 and A321 will be painted back in Air France colors but A340 won't.

Frankly, I think the new branding is awful. The riot of green on an Aer Lingus A330 signals you are in Ireland even before you leave your home airport. There is no other airline like it. The b-o-o-o-ring Eurowhite and lighter green of the shamrock signals that Ireland is experiencing a major drough...Jump to post

United Airlines operated a massive fleet of 727-100s, more than 727-200s, which goes against the trend of most other US major carriers and international operators who ultimately operated more -200s than the baseline -100 model. My dad had an air fleets book from 1976 that showed UA having a fleet of...Jump to post
American Airlines always had a close relationship with Douglas in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. AA worked with Douglas to develop airplanes and launched the DC-3, DC-6, and the DC-7. So, why did American break for the 707 over the DC-8? They also did not buy the DC-9, opting for the British BAC-111 instead...Jump to post
Takes like this have no basis in reality. Each of the US3 will make the deal that makes the most financial sense for it. None of them is "all in" for any OEM. If the 797 is as expected, DL will order a shedload of them. Boeing and UA weren't able to arrive at a price that made sense for a...Jump to post
With the increased frequencies, will this require the addition of more aircraft? (besides the A350s that are coming)? I assumed the A350s would replace the A340s on a 1-for-1 basis, but perhaps they'll be keeping the 340s for a little bit longer now?Jump to post
Any possibility of United adding an ORD-PRG service? CSA used to come to ORD, since then nothing. Sorry but CSA never operated ORD. Only JFK, EWR, YYZ and YUL. No, they also went to ORD, though it's been many years. Some of my ORD photography friends were recently posting some old pics of CSA plane...Jump to post

Agreed. What a bland livery, can't think of a worse one out there. The A346 is definitely still a looker, though.
Now I remember seeing an Air France Asie A340 when I was at CDG. Also, found in a book I have on the A340/A330 that AF introduced the A340 on the CDG-IAD route in March 1993, followed by Houston, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Recife, and Sao Paulo all from Paris via A340s by the end of 1993.Jump to post
I like where United are going with the new pallet based on various shades of blue. Hopefully they've got a new livery in the works that will feature some beautiful shades of blue, maybe a new take on the Globe, or a whole new logo. The only problem with a new paint scheme will be the same group of ...Jump to post
Air France are down to just 2x A340s in service: F-GLZJ and F-GLZU. Are there any plans for a last flight ceremony for 25 years of service and a launch customer of the type?

When they were at the high point in the AF fleet, how many did AF have? Where were the sent? Mostly states or a bit of Asia too? AF operated 24 A343s and 6 A342s, all factory ordered to my knowledge. They ditched the A342s quickly in the mid-90s (I believe a few went to LH), I believe the A343 flee...Jump to post
How come UA and NW order the 747-400 and DL, AA, and CO didn’t? Basically the 747-400 was popular with operators who had 12+hour sectors out of Southeast Asia. Those type of routes were heavily regulated at that time, NW was established and UA bought PA's established network so they benefited from ...Jump to post

Is a flagship airplane the highest capacity plane in your fleet, or the large-ish plane you have the most examples of? (Think SQ and their A380s vs 772ers). Or, is it your plane that you by far have the most examples of, even if it is smaller? (think AA and their MD-80 mega fleet in the 90s)Jump to post
