Re: Will Apple release a low cost IPhone SE2

I don't think so, as the iPhone XR is its unofficial replacement.

Re: Airports with the best one-seat ride to downtown??

Although it's not a train, YTZ has a bus that goes to downtown Toronto in 15 minutes depending on traffic.
Also, I agree with HKG, it's a very fast and easy ride.

From my home airport, it's seasonal YXU-YVR. However, I mostly take flights from YYZ, and someone already mentioned YYZ-MNL.

Re: Airports with One Room Terminals that have Jet Service?

YXU in London, Ontario, has 2 gates. The luggage claim is so small that two 737s full of luggage would definitely overload it.
Also MFM, forgot how many gates it has, but one room and it does get busy during the day.

I don't know Ryanair policies but United always announces, prior to departing the gate for taxi and takeoff, as well as for arrival, to make sure all personal hand held devices are unplugged from charging.

Never have heard this on any flight I've been on internationally. Must be an FAA rule only?

They could utilize it on routes from smaller city airports, such as LCY, on TATL routes to bigger cites/airports like JFK.

Re: Can the Airbus A320/21 NEO fly KEF-DFW

Also factor in winds, if the winds are right, they can do it, otherwise they might just sub in a bigger plane instead of blocking seats.

Well, the CS300 is mainly thought of as/designed as a 737-7 MAX competitor or a A319 competitor, so no.

Re: Airbus is considering A350-1000ULR

Wow, what kind of range would this 35JULR have? 9,000nm or more? I think the 778 probably makes more sense at that point since it would still be able to haul more cargo. I think it’s really interesting about the interchangeable cargo containers for different usable modules. Interesting times ahead....
