Re: New Airline Annoucnement KSNA

Per Spirit’s Facebook page, they’re announcing something at 12PST. The picture with the post is a California Beach. Definitely appears to be NK for SNA. Probably just 3X to LAS but hopefully something more exciting. 12est, 9pst. but ya, it is definitely spirit. definitely hoping for an oak flight! ...

Re: Why are Air Canada’s A220S flying below 30,000 ft?

It's the same in Europe, if I remember rightly the high thrust version of the engine is subject to this restriction which is why Swiss always flies their A220s at below 30,000ft (as they have the high thrust option) whereas airBaltic routinely flies above it as they apparently don't. Clearly AC als...

Re: CCTV in Aircrafts

this is definitely a great idea. hopefully airlines implement it eventually. they will be very useful. privacy should not be a complaint because they are everywhere on trains and buses and even in the airports. i think cathay pacific already has something like this

But not good news for A320N with LEAP engines. Some of those are flying.

Does anyone know what percentage of A320neos have been ordered with LEAP engines?

Re: Rumor: Etihad Considers Retiring A380s and Abandoning A350s

i think that would be a slightly good idea. less types to operate. a320 family for short haul/regional, 787 for medium/long haul, and 777/777x for long haul. even though the a350 is very efficient, it would be just an extra type, which is not a good idea for an airline that is already struggling. ev...

Re: Cathay Pacific eyes Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner as swap for 777X

I don't know about engine choice. The bad PR on RR B787 engine problem may make CX seek other choices. Well, considering that this is a CONVERSION of a 777X order, which was guaranteed to have GE engines, I think it's a no-brainer that this one will go to GE. Plus Cathay has an existing relationshi...

Re: Alaska Airlines Network Thread 2020

why did alaska cancel the sjc-sna route? i flew on it all the time, and now i can only use southwest even though i was a pure alaska flyer. whenever i flew on it, the flights were usually decently full. they seem to have moved the flights to sfo, doubling the frequency from there. that is too far fo...

Agreed, then again the 350 is such a good looking plane it's hard to look bad!! The one I like least has to be QR.....


the china eastern livery is far worse than qatar's imo
