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
I'm sorta surprised that these 777LR couldn't find other operators.....I mean even Delta surprised me by not shaking the tree to see what conditions these Eithad birds were in,given how tight they've (DAL) been on widebodies Same here. I was hoping DL would pick them up - but they certainly have a ...Jump to post

Sitting in the back of an MD-80 during start is a pretty neat experience; the starter engages and the sound progresses from a low rumble and increases in pitch several octaves until it reaches a steady howl that sounds characteristically low bypass and (IMO) exceptionally more interesting then most...Jump to post

The most intense one that I’ve experienced is indeed the 777’s GE90. However I also quite like the GE equipped 787s. GE seems to be good on that :D While it’s not intense, it just has this deep sound which I like. It’s not so much on the RR equipped ones IMO. Deep sound as in this? Because it sure ...Jump to post
I thought it’d be interesting for me to make a list of all the 767-300ERs American Airlines has owned and see there status as of this year for anyone who was curious since I don’t see why not.

Greetings everyone! I would like to hear your opinion on the loudest, most intense engine start ups on any aircraft you flown. I only have flown on the Boeing 737-700 and -800 variants on Southwest in person and it gets pretty loud when those CFM56-7Bs come to life. But in my personal opinion, the 7...Jump to post
Seems like they pushed back the retirement date for N381AN (767-300ER). Per Flightradar 24, I see N381AN having 3 flights tomorrow on MIA-ORD, ORD-MIA, and MIA-SJU. As for N389AA, another 763ER retiring with 381, has a flight today to TUL from MIA at 5:30 PM and doesn't show anything afterwards.Jump to post
