Powershift transmission was highly publicized in 2009 / 2010 IIRC for the "Large" Ford Range (SMax, Mondeo, Galaxy). During that time I was working at the Volvo dealership - that was together with Ford, and we received a memo, that Powershift would have been available on 2.0 litre diesel (...Jump to post

There's an app for that. It's not 1993 anymore.

BLQ is not a tourist destination for Americans. They go Italy’s big guns: Rome, Venice, Florence/Pisa/Tuscany and to a lesser extent Milan and Campania. It’s a truly underrated Italian city but also truly authentic and hopefully it stays that way. And the surrounding area is interesting for those i...Jump to post
the fact is that Samsung products are inferior in component's quality but Android OS is way way way way better than Apple iOS.

what a sad thing! In your opinion. Personally quite happy to see the inefficient go to the wayside, and make room for the advanced. Yes by the way it's my opinion. But what is the footprint that building a new plane takes? Agree a more modern plane will use less fuel to do the same job. But the who...Jump to post

because you can say at parties, I have an Italian sportscar :lol: You are right about Maserati, very temperamental car, very so pretty.

I gently used Maserati Granturismo. You will be the only one in your neighborhood driving one, and the mere sound of its exhaust will send you into sexual arousal... ;) You know what, you are right.

I'd have a BMW. For under $ 65000,- you'll have a nice 2 Series (maybe also an M2), a 3 and a 4 too, but not Ms. I'd stay away from the 124. First because it's a FIAT. Second, because it's a FIAT and third, well, it's a FIAT. If you want to experience very rarely happyness, joy and confidence and mu...Jump to post
Leonardo is State owned, it's the old Finmeccanica It's not state-owned; it's a publicly traded company whose largest shareholder is the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finances (30.2% of the shares as of January 30, 2017). The Italian state has a good control of Leonardo; still it remains a public...Jump to post

I've flown on Delta's 757 TATL on PSA, was a nice ride, but indeed, not the best experience. A widebody is way better. Wait, not every widebody is better.

I used to live very near to a Timberland brand outlet. So I went there, once or twice a month, to look for nice deals. Mainly there were past collections unsold pairs, back from the stores.

You have to check out Surinam Airways' video when the 743 was delivered. It is perfect for a Monday morning. Back to the topic, I think a 77E is more than enough for this route. Also, the 77E is a perfect choice, being the plane used also by KLM, they surely can do some maintenance in AMS, if needed...Jump to post
Boohoo. Still over 2 - 2.4bn profit, instead of projected 2.4 - 3bn. 340 million of it are due to provisions for tax arrears. The aviation industry is probably on the verge of a crisis with some difficult years ahead, but no one can seriously say LH is having a crisis (yet). A -12% loss in one day ...Jump to post
Yes, my bad forgetting A340-300/200. Still, amazing the commercial production run is coming to an end. Due to the huge quantity of in service engines, parts shouldn't be an issue.

CFM has to thank the B737 for his success, being the only possible engine on the most successful commercial airplane ever sure helped I think both programs have each other to thank for their success.

Weren't all the A320-100s only operated by Air Inter - later absorbed by Air France?
edit no, also British Airways operated the A320-100.
KLM never operated the MD80.
