Re: London to Brisbane

Well my final legs were a bit of a surprise. What has happened to Singapore Airlines? A350-900 for both legs: Dubai to Singapore Singapore to Brisbane. The aircraft looked quite new. I'm not sure when Singapore started receiving A350s, and this was my first Singapore A350s. But boy, I was not enteri...

I've never known it take so long to collect tickets for a flight! I think I have also worked out where I initially went wrong this morning.

Re: 2 vs 4 engines

N1 is the rotation speed of the low-pressure spool as a percentage of its nominal maximum. Higher N1 gives higher thrust, but it is not a linear relationship as I mentioned earlier. Quads are not better in every way. So many more bits that need maintenance and can break. But they have their moments...

Re: 2 vs 4 engines

Actually, the twin is somewhat over-powered at cruise due to the take-off performance requirements of the OEI case. Perhaps, strangely, but it’s a benefit at cruise. At most optimum levels for the wing, the twin must operate at at lower percentage of maximum available thrust, this is around 85% N1 ...

4) Engines can be correctly sized for cruise, rather than single engine take off, so punch smaller hole in the air - less drag IMHO this one is not really valid, as engines on twins are correctly sized for cruise.
