Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2020

i just looked out a few months to see if BA has modified or cancelled future SAN-LHR flights.. they still have a 747 scheduled in 2021 on BA272 (so obviously hasn't been modified). I wonder when the next time that route will fly and what aircraft it will be.

Re: ueen

Some apparent sad news from BA today; there's a thread on it and, although noone can produce official notification yet, the entire 747 fleet is apparently to be permanently retired and will not fly again. It appears we've seen the "Queen of the Skies" in SAN for the last time (undoubtedly...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

i flew in to Basel, Switzerland last year. it was interesting -- you can exit the airport to France or Switzerland and there were separate customs lines for each exit. It is one step better than having the land bridge they have here from TJ Airport to SD because you would never have to enter Mexico..

I was talking to a friend who works at the FBO at CLD, that the runway could be easily extended. El Camino Real, which is the street on the east of the airport, could have a runway built above it. Much the same way Spring Street runs under the main runway at LGB. The land to the east of El Camino R...

Re: Updated: WN 8725 KOAK - PHNL She's on her way!

The 6 hour and 40 minute flight from HNL to DAL has to be their all time longest time and distance flight ever. 6:40 isn't that long if you think about it. I'm sure there are some westbound flights from the east coast that eclipse that number in the winter, especially routes like EWR-OAK or BWI-SAN...
