772 TR-KPR (stored 2016)
Considering MLB is marketing itself as an Orlando area airport now, I'm not sure JetBlue sees much value added in serving both.Jump to post
Let's see what additional info comes out. The crew did a good job of responding to the emergency, but I'm curious what led to it on the crew side (if anything) as well as on the maintenance/airline side. I wonder what if anything was downloaded from CVR/FDR by the US authorities. If nothing, then I...Jump to post
Installing the winglet mod is a pretty large investment. I can't recall the cost for the 757, but it takes more than just bolting on the winglet to install it. There is a lot of structural work that has be done inside the wing to do the mod. So if an airplane is going to leave the fleet relatively ...Jump to post
Sounds like a total AIMS failure. A quick LRU swap would return it to service which seems to be the case. Hindsight is 20/20, but in my opinion, less technical inquiry from ATC about the aircraft's status would have reduced the stress induced on the aircrew. "End of discussion. My plane is brok...Jump to post
Can't wait to see one in United livery.Jump to post
I thought 5Y-KQS went to Omni?
If not where is this aircraft now?

Given the military traffic between ORF and SEA, I think that's the next city for Alaska. And, depending on the performance of that route, SAN-ORF to fo...Jump to post

And no, Orbis no longer operates the DC-10. Their original DC-10 was replaced with a...Jump to post

Delta's dispatchers are union and they're the most profitable airline in the world. Good for WestJet's dispatchers!Jump to post

Some here may be interested in knowing that shortly after the 777 arrived at Delta in the late 90s, there was a major dispute re: pilot pay with the 777. The first few frames actually sat idle for a while while the dispute was sorted out. Basically, Delta wanted to pay 777 pilots less than the MD-11...Jump to post
Because Delta is awesome. That's why.Jump to post
