Re: Hawaiian to cut workforce by 35%

I thought Hawaii was closed to out of state visitors. My understanding is that Hawaii isn't closed, but a 14 day quarantine is required for out-of-state visitors. My wife and I had discussed a trip to Hawaii this month, but that was before Governor Ige extended the quarantine date. The state govern...

Hawaiian to cut workforce by 35%

https://www.khon2.com/coronavirus/hawaiian-airlines-to-cut-workforce/ The 35% number is variable depending on how many employees opt for the retirement option. Also, 35% number came from internal communication sent to employees. With Hawaiian Airlines mostly serving leisure travel, how fast or slow ...

Re: When is too much wing flex bad?

Do you have evidence (not opinions) to support your contention that the pickle fork cracks are caused by the installation of winglets? The pickle fork issues may or may not be the effect of winglets. I for one think that it’s definitely a possibility. Root cause analysts pending. If this analysis i...

Re: When is too much wing flex bad?

Too much wing flex is bad when the structural integrity of the wing is compromised and there is not enough fuel savings. Wing flex is all about fuel savings.

Re: Grounding A320neos will have consequences: DGCA

The DGCA will probably follow the FAAs lead on this. Meaning no grounding. I personally think the fleet should be grounded. This way Pratt & Whitney will come up with a solution a bit quicker. Some operators have way more at stake than others.

Re: Why are UA´s 777-300ER designated as 777-322ERs?

Last two digits on a Boeing model reveal the customer code, for the airline that originally placed the order for that aircraft. United's is 22, Continental's was 24. This doesn't apply to MAX, 787s, 777X, and 747-8, as those aircraft have all gone to the (ridiculous) -8/-9/-10/etc numbering system....

Aside the 737 name and look, the MAX is a completely different iteration of the model. I’m sure If someone wanted to do this, the old CFM engine from the NG would not fit on the pylon. Or if you would like to change to the old pylon from the NG, it would not fit on the MAX wing..... so on and so for...
