Well, the article states that the intention is to replicate Emirates or Qatar's model, so it'd be using CAI as a hub. But with both of those plus TK and Euro companies doing the same with established reputation... I dunno, maybe sell it as a budget airline? like many using BOA for flights to MIA.Jump to post
So... EgytpAir is aiming at flying to Buenos Aires. Not sure how serious this is, but civil aviation authorities confirmed this with a tweet

A345 must be top 5 prettiest aircraft ever built. Didn't it hold the title of longest ranged airlner for a time?

Just last week I rented a car in the US. It was a Camry, my first time with a Toyota. Didn't quite like it. When changing lanes w/out signaling, it beeped and corrected my steering, which the first couple of times freaked me out and made me re-correct the correction! I always use signaling, but when...Jump to post
New uniforms unfortunately wont do anything so long as appearance standards are so low. Too many employees just look so sloppy, and not sharp and crisp as intended.

US operations went from global peer to peer to asymetric warfare and now aiming at P2P again, just more localized. I can see a thread in 10/15 years blaming on the USAF for getting rid of the A-10s. It's overreliance on the F-35 and the can-do-all attitude seems a bit dire.Jump to post
AR last flew EZE SYD on A343 so it's not quite on par with LON-SYD and such. It should be achievable with current metal, but maybe not very economical without the classic AKL stop. Oh how I wished that flight returnedJump to post
Putin bought for his mistress, Alina Kabajeva, the most expensive apartment in all of Russia*. Like I say, it has nothing to do with NATO, the West or rainbow-colored unicorns.

So The Drive article states it was brought down by a Sidewinder featuring semi-active radar homing (using the Raptor's radar). And the Raptor was used because of the height.

I'm siding with AA on this one. If you can't take care of your luggage, then maybe you shouldn't have brought it. You didn't pay for them to do your heavy lifting, other than on the cargo hold.

What happens to AR? I'm thinking they will probably drop JFK (since DL+AR codeshare anyways). They can use this aircraft to relaunch MCO perhaps.

Fair enough. I was using wiki numbers as I remembered them.

AR is said to be close to making a decision on new A330-900 to replace/augment the A332 fleet, but we are talking 2024-25 at the earliest.

Extending the block time generally works, until you encounter no departure delay and land at ORD 40 minutes early and get to enjoy the penalty box until your gate is open.

Didn't know this existed. I thought all crews, including in the US, just went ahead and skipped the queue, which IMO is the worst part of security checks. Maybe it's time we put an end to the no shoes/no belt/laptop out of the bag/no liquids/etc. That'd make lines go faster.Jump to post

Much of AR's E90 fleet is on the ground (1/3rd last I heard), getting E2's seems pointless and only serving politically (after last sunday of course). More MAXes is the sound choice, as well as A330NEOs.Jump to post
