What do you think could be the 1st scheduled A350 flight in YYZ?
Some have mentioned IB, but personally I find it unlikely in the short term.
What about CX? Probably for their 2nd daily flight. Or the LH flight from MUC?
Looking forward to reading about your thoughts on this.
Just found out that BA is suspending 747 service in their LHR-MEX route starting November 1st this year. Apparently the flight will now be operated by 787-9 aircraft. Doing a quick search on their website for flights next summer, the route appears as flown by 772 aircraft, so it seems that the Jumbo...Jump to post
Hi, Just read about Data Comm being implemented at SLC. I've read about it on the FAA websites, but there's little detail there. From what I understand, Data Comm is only being used for Clearance Delivery, is this correct? And apparently it will start replacing ARTCC radio communications starting 20...Jump to post
Their newer 738s are being delivered with SSW, and they have retrofitted existing airframes as well.
So the AstroJet is back in revenue ops today 8/04. Flew EWR - CLT - EWR in the morning and is now on its way to PHX before its last leg of the day to SAN.
Hopefully someone can spot it and let us know about its paint job after spending some days in Tulsa.
It's great that someone's already posted about this. I'm completely fascinated by the preview and my expectations of the movie. I believe that Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks are the perfect combination for a movie like this. Hanks was very focused on respecting pretty much every true real detail in Ap...Jump to post

The outbound flight is scheduled (if I'm not mistaken) to be just 1 minute shy of 15 hours long. I bet this has to do with crew contract issues.
AeroMexico's crews (who absolutely have to rank among the people who hate their jobs the most in the world, according to my experience) do the same thing, giving no window control to passengers. This dark window system in the 787 was something quite remarkable to me at first, but now that I see that...Jump to post

As someone who is really looking forward to his first 787 flight, I'm really disappointed in what many airlines are doing with the 787 windows. I know that AeroMexico will dim the windows to the darkest setting during flight with no option of individually changing the setting. So what's the point of...Jump to post

Thanks a lot for the replies! The US immigration and customs pre-clearance at Canadian airports is news for me, and I think that's just terrific.
