Re: Airbus A220 (CSeries) Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

Heard that TC may be getting two more A223, has anyone else heard/read that somewhere?

Re: Man climbs on to wing of plane as it is about to take off

I'm confused, on FB there was a video of him climbing out of the #2 engine intake cowl, then other videos showing him climbing up the #1 onto the L/H wing. Either way, he was extremely lucky for single engine taxi if he was in the engine intake for the taxi-out!!! :-O Seems to be a man with mental ...

Re: Air Peace Plans to Launch Johannesburg, London, Houston, Guangzhou and Mumbai; Most Likely from Lagos.

More importantly will be to see how the flight loads are for next few weeks. The inaugural flight was supposedly almost totally full. Inaugural flights are usually full of VIPs and press not paying anything. let´s see how the loads are in a few weeks. Well according to sources, the flight had 316 p...

Re: Air Peace Plans to Launch Johannesburg, London, Houston, Guangzhou and Mumbai; Most Likely from Lagos.

I’m sorry to say but everything that Air Peace has done as of late does not make any financial sense. In fact, it’s plain obvious this is not a well managed airline. Just because they have captured market share lately (due to Arik Air and Aero financial difficulties) doesn’t make it a well run airl...

Re: Air Peace Plans to Launch Johannesburg, London, Houston, Guangzhou and Mumbai; Most Likely from Lagos.

When Arik flew the B738 from JNB to LOS there was a payload restriction of 24 pax departing JNB so it could only take off with 124 seats filled iso 148. Note we at W3 offered 2 piece baggage allowance on this route too. Pax on LOS JNB prefer the wide body SAA experience and Arik’s main selling poin...

Re: Air Peace Plans to Launch Johannesburg, London, Houston, Guangzhou and Mumbai; Most Likely from Lagos.

P4 hasn’t gotten any slots yet nor have they hired staff abroad nor obtained office space! Remember their 2 B777s have been parked at LOS for over a year now. Once they publish the schedule for these routes then only it is to be believed. They won’t even last more than six months flying to CAN and ...

I suspect this will be another in a long line of failed startups in Nigeria (and west Africa as a whole). Unless they can navigate the ineptness and management corruption of previous carriers, I have serious doubt these planes will ever be delivered.


You know this carrier is about 5 years right??

Re: Air Peace orders up to 30 E195-E2s

In my opinion, the best aircraft suited for their entire operation over the long term is the A220 family ie 5 A221s + 15 A223s to cover their entire domestic plus regional African network if operated at full strength. They don’t need an aircraft the size of a B7M8 as in Nigeria, frequencies game pl...

Air Peace orders up to 30 E195-E2s

Nigerian carrier Air Peace has firmed an order for up to 30 Embraer 195-E2 regional jets, unveiling the agreement at an African airline seminar organised by the airframer in Mauritius. Ten aircraft are under firm contract and the agreement includes purchase rights for another 20. The airline will be...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

People keep going on and on about the MCAS, but if the FR24 data is reasonably accurate, this aircraft had barely reached 1000' AGL in the first 3 minutes of the flight. If the plane wasn't climbing, would the pilots retract the flaps? I guess maybe if they couldn't get the nose up and they still h...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Over 42% of delivered 737 MAX worldwide are now grounded (China/Indonesia/Ethiopia/South Africa...) If Boeing is targeting emerging Asia & Africa markets (with sub-par pilots, sub-par training, and sub-par maintenance based on earlier comments in this thread) it should account for that in its p...

Re: Ethiopian Airlines 737MAX crashes enroute to Nairobi

Whether grounding the Max 8 fleet is justified or reasonable at this point or not, certainly there can be simulator training for MAX 8 pilots to go through the same conditions as the Lion Air flight the day before the crash, the crashed Lion Air flight and now the Ethiopian crash? Apparently there ...
