Re: Kenyan lawmaker wants to ban flatulence on airplanes

Out of all the stupid things we all argue about these days, I'm glad to see we can all still laugh about farts.

Cheers, you buttholes :trophy: :champagne: :trophy:

Any news from Moses Lake lately? I haven't heard from this program in a while.

Re: What is Boeing’s overall commercial game plan?

I hear that opinion often. The numbers just don't support it. You mean numbers like last year when Boeing sold exactly the same amount of non-Tanker 767s as Airbus sold A350s? That’s pretty good when a 37 year old airframe keeps up with a new flagship wide body in sales. Exactly which numbers don’t...

Re: What is Boeing’s overall commercial game plan?

Airbus has superior NB offerings (even prior to and not even considering the MAX issue); Airbus would have a monopoly here if they could raise production... and Boeing has superior WB offerings; they would have a monopoly here if Airbus wasn't forced and shamed by the market to make the XWB. Airline...

How is AC doing on YYZ-SEA?

93% LF. I know load isnt everything, but they have no direct flight competition on that route, amazingly. So their yields cant be too bad.

Re: Lufthansa Polling On Which City To Send A380 To (ORD, SEA, TPA, DFW)

What do you mean SEA cannot handle an A380? Can't you park at at an existing gate? Just because you do not have dual boarding bridges does not mean you cannot handle it. SEA technically can handle it, but the hassle isn't worth it, they can park at the west side of the South Satellite but that woul...

I'm really surprised DL hasn't started service to SLC or even MSP... They have to have FFers north of Seattle that would love to fly out of PAE right?

Re: Where will Boeing park undelivered MAXs?

Moses Lake is the nice location where they can securely and conveniently test outside of the media's prying, I'd guess.

Re: Washington State Thread - 2019

Pasco should do better in 2019. Got curious and looked it up... PSC was up big in January (12%). UA expansion was part of it... but it appears this was mostly due to Alaska returning to a higher level of flights as they had in '17. Was this due to Horizon resolving their severe pilot shortage issue...

Re: Delta B739 vs A321

You will not find a NG driver accept the FACT that the 73SUPER is less a plane on its best day than the 757 on its worst day. But we do 93% of the missions the 75 does with less fuel.... ABSOLUTELY !!!! My casual observation insofar as the seatback monitor has accurate data... I've been on a 739 JF...

Re: Delta B739 vs A321

Bragging about climbing straight to FL300 isn't much of a brag......just sayin'. Especially when you would be at 380 in a 757 with a similar load . But at a higher fuel burn. The days of hot-rod aircraft are long gone; now it's hyper-mileage all along. You know, that's what is so amazing to me. Fue...

Re: When will the Boeing 737NG and A320CEO production cease

Is Boeing building the P-8 frames on order and then storing them? Several countries have dozens of P-8s on order (USAF, RAF, RAAF, India, Norway, etc.) with deliveries several years into the future. More orders are inevitable for the P-8 so I wonder if Boeing is going to build extra 737NG frames in ...

Re: BOG gets USA pre clearance in less than a year

Does anyone know if you can use the mobile passport app at the preclearance airports? I'm flying to/from Dublin this spring and hope to use it at the pre clearance in DUB. I love the mobile passport, it gets me through quicker than global entry and it's free.

Re: Final Passenger flight for the Boeing 727

I too have fond memories of the 727... I felt like a rich man on it. There was this one beautiful night over SW Washington in particular.... anyways, I remember the rear stairs being quite useful!

So long old bird.
