Anytime there is any news about to JetBlue, it's going to get taken over by XX, YY, ZZ.
Aligning themselves with United to prepare the customer base for the eventual merger. The play for B6 will be made, and soon.
Except that United didn't have to retire the 747's. They chose to do so, because as so many airlines around the world are choosing to draw down 747 use, due to higher oil price from when they were built. United retired the 747 because they did not want to *invest* further into the fleet, specifical...Jump to post

Not really. If the trijet was a good design/configuration, Boeing and/or Airbus would be building them. You're absolutely right. Three engines is a horribly unsuccessful aircraft design with no future... 1389044,0110474,2051897 1881240,1794692,1466003 https://nyoobserver.files.wordpress.com/2017/12...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
