Re: Video - Flying the A320

awesome vid, mega jealous as I'd love to have been a pilot. Just like you I've racked up a lot of playing time on Flight Simulator, and I've always had time for the Airbus as I just found it much more easier to understand and get to grips with than the boeing, although the boeing planes are just as ...

Re: Emergency - Jandakot Airport: 31/8/2019

The student pilot said it was his first lesson. Air traffic control help student pilot land aircraft at Jandakot. That must be a memorable first lesson. :lol: Hope the instructor pilot will be fine. Such a noob I have never flown an a/c but I have tons of experience flying wide-bodies in stressful ...

Re: Air Tanzania A220-300 on DAR-BOM (2500 nm)

Hi all, Air Tanzania proudly launched DAR (Dar es Salaam) - BOM (Mumbai) two weeks ago. The flight was operated with the B787-8 (262 seats). Only 147 pax were inside the aircraft during the inaugural flight, so I guess that's the reason why they switched the 6h30-long flight to an A220-300 (or 787 ...

Re: Korean Air Captain Tries to Drink Inflight, FA Who Stopped Him Demoted

It seems as though the only way to get KE fixed (when it comes to CRM) is more contract captains and instructors from outside of Korea like they did in the '90s. I would expect Delta is watching this very closely but it is extremely hard to change a culture that has been ingrained in their society ...

Whats more upsetting about this incident is that the crew eventually found the problem as to why the plane was going down, but it was too late for them to do anything, the recording is so sad

Longest serving livery

As I have no life, I was browsing through some old school airlines and airports, and it got me wondering which airline has or had the longest serving livery to date? I thought about lufthansa and maybe Thai airways but there must be some out there that have been going on for even longer

Re: Should Alaska Airlines start long-haul sevices?

I thought about this the other day when jetblue announced their intention to go long haul, and at first I thought, why the heck not, then I did some more thinking and came to the conclusion of it really wouldn't work with them, especially with their fleet.

Wouldn't something like the A321LR be viable for them, slightly more capacity than a 757 and could go further? obviously have to wait and see if they can actualyl afford to get some that is

Is there going to be any chance for TK to start its non-stop flight to Sydney or Melbourne (possibly Brisbane) from Istanbul? If yes, are those potential routes going to target primarily for transfer passengers from E...
