Re: N777UA- How much longer does she have?

Time marches on... I vividly remember Air Canada retiring its Viscount, the first airplane I ever flew on, in 1969 when I was 11 years old; by 1974 they were all gone. Lots of hours on DC9s. Gone. Flew on DC8s, 727s, L1011s, DC10s, A300s, A310s, mostly all gone; Flew on AC 767s when they were only ...

Re: Airline livery you miss the most

Personally, I really enjoyed the old AA livery, the old Air Canada (blue, and then the red and silver ones they had on their 747-200) , Canadian Airlines, old FedEx, the PSA smile, Eastern, the old Alitalia and the most was the last Delta livery (especially the colorful tail)

Re: Icelandair is still growing 757 fleet

Is it just me, or in YYZ is it hard to distinguish jet airways and icelandair jets? (their tails are the only things i see)

Re: Air Canada begins MAX 8 service to LHR

Does anyone have a list of all NB jets that can cross the Atlantic? (I have been once told that the 757 was the only one, but evidently, that's wrong)

Thank you

Re: Air Canada begins MAX 8 service to LHR

Does anyone have the break down on cabin capacity from the 767? Buisness class (pods): 24 seats Economy: 137 seats (This is just Air Canada's 767-300ER) Standard 767-300ER: 181-375 seats on most jets (over 1100 jets built have an average of 181-375 seats, some have more and some have less) Please c...

Re: American Airlines Sets Retirement Date for MD-80s

It looks like AA has 12-13 MD-82 and it has 4 MD-82s in storage. They also have 6 MD-83s. No MD-83s or in storage. (according to https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/American_Airlines) Personally I really miss the reverse thrust pushback and the reverse thrust completely, i miss the way they opened up an...

Re: A343 and A346 Status?

There's zero market for them. The new A339 251T can fly just as far as the 343 could for significantly less costs and the 346 was a pig compared to even the 777-300ER, much less the A350. Once Airbus stopped building the 343, significant changes were made to remove those additional structures from ...

Hey guys, I have flown many times with AC and had bad service on each one. That is what I meant.

It was a Canadian airline, but I do remember that the incident did involve ...

Drunk co-pilot removed from TAP Portugal Flight

A "highly intoxicated" pilot was removed from the cockpit of a flight, leaving more than 100 passengers stranded at Stuttgart airport. Shortly before the TAP Air Portugal flight was due to take off to Lisbon on Friday night, an airport employee noticed the man walking unsteadily and smelt ...

After about two weeks they realized they didn't pick the right colour. Whenever we discuss something that went wrong there will be at least one member, usua...

Re: Air Canada will add 4 more A330-300s in 2019

Rouge I think won't retire their 767s until they can find a better long range wide body airliner (are they getting 787s)? I hope so, the 767s are getting long in the tooth. I've flown Rouge internationally on 3 round trips, EDI, GLA and FCO. On the outward FCO trip, and the inbound GLA trip, we inc...

Really not sure why they would retire the E190, they are very usefull and not even that old. (1999) Yet they have 97 of them,(i think that that is wrong though. (wikipedia) It also says they retired their 175s in 2015, i flew on one last year to Boston from Toronto. (it was not even Air Canada Jazz ...
