Do we have an indication on how many 777s are left in the fleet and their location per WFU? I did see one 777-200ER on the North Side Hangers while I was picking up a family member from the airport. Never thought it would be that freaking huge compared to spotting on the South Deck.Jump to post
Looks like the 757-300s are back in action. Looking on Flightaware (At the time I speak at the moment) DL1237 and 1716 are both flying between ATL and SLC. Great to see the pencil back in the air!
Sucks big time that Delta is retiring the 777s at the end of the year. But it's understandable why they need to do with the pandemic still wrecking havoc in the aviation industry. This really shocked me when I heard the news. I hope they find new homes. Perhaps FedEx could be interested in those 10 ...Jump to post
Not too sure if this has been asked before or not. But is there a market for the 757s to be converted to freighter operations? I know that the 767s definitely will be converted since majority of Americans 767s are with airlines like Prime Air. As for the 757s, I know FedEx, DHL, and UPS have quite a...Jump to post
Some things revealed today: - E190/763 officially retired - 757A333 set to be gone by year-end. - ""We will continue to assess further reductions as we move forward," says American CEO Doug Parker on further fleet decisions." - "The levers to go down farther," says Ame...Jump to post
I know American announced that they will rid the 767s by the end of May this year, while the 757s will be gone by 2021 at some point. I know Delta or United won't likely follow this route, but there is any chance that they will accelerate the retirement of maybe a few of them since demand is getting...Jump to post
B763 N395AN is en route from PHL to ROW for retirement. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N395AN Just a baby. Not much more than 82000 hours on her. Darn, and just to think they were keeping them until next year since the Max groundings. Man I missed a lot. I hope I can experience flying on one s...Jump to post
Welp, that's it. That's the end of the line for the Mad Dogs in American. The backbone for nearly 2-3 decades. Never flew one in my life, but boy were they awesome to look at. R.I.P. Super 80. Spotting will never be the same once Delta gets rid of theirs.Jump to post
I have been on FlightRadar24 for the past hour or so tracking the arrivals for the Super 80. Another guy that is posting on the AA Fleet Thread has been tracking them as well. At this moment. N9681B (AAL9626) is landing at ROW as we speak, with N968TW behind from STL.Jump to post
Not too sure if this was a charter or not, but I caught a 767-300ER (N1201P) from RDU-ATL.
Man am I gonna miss these shiny glistening chrome T-tails with the ionic red, white and blue stripes. Just a week or two left until they are gone. Time flies so fast you don't realize until it hits you in the back of the head.Jump to post
Glad he and his family is ok. Those pictures startled me.Jump to post
Ouch. Hope they resolve the issue soon. That is utter chaos if they can't distribute fuel to those aircraft.Jump to post
It's been a while since I posted. But as everyone said on this forum, do not let those ignorant self-centered trolls back you into a wall when you are doing you. The way you present your information is amazing and I can look forward to see what is going on everyday about the widebody movements. As a...Jump to post
Virgin Atlantic has once again switched over to the A330-300 on the ATL-LHR route, but this time permanently for the remainder of time (Unless they decide to change it or something comes up). Their final (And possible) scheduled A340 service was last week Friday on the 28th of June. I know VS are re...Jump to post
Wow, looks like there was an incident involving an Air France 777-300ER today an hour ago. One of the engines have went out and they did a complete 360 back to the airport and landed. I'm glad everyone is ok. Here is a FlightAware link on this particular aircraft. https://flightaware.com/live/flight...Jump to post
Good day everyone. Another sad day in aviation as we have another airline retire their final 747-400, in this case Kuwait Airways. I posted a link to Simple Flying for their article if anyone wants to read this article. I believe this is either the 2nd or 3rd airline to retire their last 747 this ye...Jump to post

Looks like Air France is starting their A380 service today. Finally the Super Jumbo returns to Atlanta! Here is also a quick article on the Super Jumbo returning to Atlanta.

Great news for any Virgin Atlantic fans! They have extended the A340 service from the ATL-LHR route until April 30. There was a thread recently mentioning the retirement of the VS A340 will take place around later this year, not sure if it was confirmed but its starting to look like it.Jump to post
Any idea as to why ATL removed the smooth jazz playing throughout the terminal and replaced it with strange orchestra music? That I have no idea. But I always love going through the concourses listening to relaxing jazz music. Marta also did the same thing a few years back where they stopped playin...Jump to post

We’ve been ferrying A/C from DFW and other cities all night to MIA to cover some of the MAX flying that was cancelled. Also they will work on A/C routing to have exsisting A/C Cover what they can for the MAX and Oasis frames that are parked. Believe it’s a total of: 38 that are out of service (14 O...Jump to post
Not another one... Rest In Peace to all that passed in this crash. My condolences to their families.Jump to post
Greetings everyone! So far tail numbers N140LL and N1402A are still in the air as we speak between Atlanta and Salt Lake City. In recent news the 767-300s are supposed to be phased out in early 2019. While dummy booking, I can confirm so far that the retirement seems to be around April 24th. I would...Jump to post
Super stoked for the 777x! Can't not wait!Jump to post
It seems as though the 747 retirement plan is confirmed. 13 will be retired from 2019-2022 and the last 21 in 2022-2024, with the 2nd phase retirements going quicker. I have an article as well mentioning British Airways retirement tactics and plans. Good read if you guys want to check it out. Here's...Jump to post
Have a couple of new updates for new flights from ATL (Per Wiki Atlanta Airport page with links attached): 1. Frontier will add their ATL-PHL route starting on 4/30/2019. 2. Spirit will add on a new route as well as a new seasonal route. Spirit will add their ATL-AUS route on 5/23/2019. While their ...Jump to post

From the new rule regulations for better racing, to the new team names during the off season. New drivers as well as a few veterans switching to different teams. Plus the month of teams revealing their new 2019 challengers, what are you're thoughts for this year? I'm actually quite stoked and can't ...Jump to post
Good evening everyone! As we know, British Airways will retire their last 747-400 in 2024. However, it seems like there is some depth in the retirement plans that we don't know. In short summery, AirlineGeeks recently obtain info from a close source about the retirements. There are 13 aircraft that ...Jump to post
That is extremely scary to have both engines fail like that even on landing. I'm glad everyone is ok and there was no further incident but it could been a lot worse depending on the time the incident took place. But I am gonna go along with ikolkyo and guess it was (or could of been) a software fail...Jump to post
