And how many people are going to travel to Italy (MXP) this summer? I will be happy to do northern Europe or Scandinavia this summer. Forget Italy, France, Spain. Next winters ski season will be affected due to concerns for a second wave. Far less people.Jump to post
We all know that the the 707, DC-8, 747, DC-10 and A300/A310 are good freighters but is the CV-880/990, L-1011 and A340 a bad freighter design like the A380? Any thoughts? Should’nt your question have been in the past tense given that most of the types you mention are long gone? I don’t think there...Jump to post

The fixed version will not be the same plane that went down in Indonesia and Ethiopia.
Do furloughed employees receive some kind of compensation, like 80% of their monthly salary or will they just have to make do with their savings until the company calls them back to work?

But this action only comes about due to immediate shortage of cash, i.e. they cannot afford to pay salaries at the end of april. This however does nothing to alleviate the dept situation of the Norwegian group.
I usually thought of longrange flight in terms of hours and minutes, along with fuel remaining. That would put the basic -200 somewhere near 9 hours + reserves. The longest flight I have seen was 12.4 with a tanked -200, (110,000 total fuel) from Istanbul to Boeing field, landing with about 5000 lb...Jump to post
The title of this stream is possibly a little premature. Air NZ has begun a consultation with their 1,550 wide body (aircraft least anyone is confused) cabin crew as their forward planning through 2021 suggests there are some 1,000 roles which are surplus to the plan. This might at first sight seem...Jump to post
Great article, thanks. Glad they didn’t build any more Aeroquays, looks inspired by the horrible CDG terminal 1.Jump to post
Who would've thought two months ago that there would be no public progress on the MAX and yet we'd see almost no postings in this thread?

I would have thought Frontier - all the different animals. Those are just decals printed then adhered to the aircraft. True. Same with all the people on the tails of Norwegian, which would be just as complicated to paint. Luckily they don't have to paint them. As I said before, the computer does th...Jump to post

Good riddance. The UK CAA was always full of itself and considered itself god´s (or the Queen´s ) gift to aviation. Quite a few of the “complications” introduced into JAA/EASA regulations were carried over from the UK. Now perhaps things can be rationalized and simplified in the EASA environment onc...Jump to post

What is that hanging down from the wing root.
Nothing protects the tug operator of those small tugs from the airplane. The low stance of the 737 did not help in this case.Jump to post
Agreed. I was responding to par13del calling it hypocritical to mandate a sim in an aircraft sub category and keep it the same type. Precedence has been set. Even as far back as the 767 and 757 being the same type......the systems are not even the same. RAT vs HMG is what stands out the most. What?...Jump to post

A few things to consider: 1) gcmap routings are the ideal, but weather patterns & prevailing winds can cause a reroute that adds substantial distance (and duration) to the flight. 2) A comparison of cruise speed and ceiling with a 788, which is Mach .85 & 43,000 Ft., the A321XLR is 8% slowe...Jump to post

Er, no the floor is in a different location in the tube. Taller lower lobe among other things.

Exact same cabin as a 757.
