Man, the E175 looks great in that.Jump to post
Going back and re-reading some of the earlier Max grounding threads is very illuminating. Precise language is repeated over and over by certain posters who are pushing the 'the pilots are to blame, not Boeing' agenda. Im convinced one person has multiple accounts and is attempting to do Boeing a se...Jump to post
Alaska B739 N302AS is en route from SEA to VCV for repainting into the new Alaska livery. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N302AS For those who aren't aware, this is the former N737X, the prototype 737-900. It's unable to have winglets installed. I'll miss seeing it in the old livery - it was th...Jump to post

My perspective is that PDX-FLL Is pretty well serviced by AS via SEA. They have so many flights from PDX-SEA that there just isn't a bottleneck there. And, as mentioned by others, those of us on the west coast don't really look to Florida as a vacation spot: California, Mexico, and Hawaii fill that ...Jump to post

Wonder if a LCC would be able to run 4/4 single aisle on something like that for high density? Not if it needs to comply with US law: 14 CFR § 25.817 - Maximum number of seats abreast On airplanes having only one passenger aisle, no more than three seats abreast may be placed on each side of the ai...Jump to post
Narrow WB fuselage has been looked at for decades. It didn't get usefull applucation for short/ medium haul. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f0/a5/94/f0a59490e696ce23d3ed7f0ad7d29522.jpg It seems to me that if you're doing 2 aisles, it makes more sense to be 3-2-2 - so essentially seats ABC are the ...Jump to post
but the poster presented an unsubstantiated rumour about 737 MAX stall characteristics - and I posted a first hand account that it might not be so. I didn't make it up. I didn't makeup MAX stall characteristics. I said let MAX have its own stall characteristics and let pilots handle. No need for MA...Jump to post
Having now read the aircrew reports that are cited in the news... I am not seeing much of a pattern. https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/5766398-ASRS-Reports-for-737-max8.html 1. AT system didn't respond as pilot expected - no clear reason why. Pilot was on 2nd flight of MAX and may have made in...Jump to post
Something was VERY wrong on this flight. IF the FR data is right they rotated at 89kts... Based on what I see in the data they basically took off stalling. I'd be very careful there as it is entirely possible that sampling delay/rates for FR24-data isn't granular enough for this kind of to the seco...Jump to post
I'm curious if this will impact their Hawaii rollout/expansion timeline.Jump to post
Just seen this from The Telegraph. The headline runs thus: "Pilots complained several times about 737 MAX problems before latest crash" https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/737-max-pilot-complaints-concerns-safety/ Sincere apologies if it's been posted already (huge rush here, no time ...Jump to post
You don’t need the stall alarm to think you are approaching a stall. In fact, the testing standards for stalls, at least PPL, is to verbalize “imminent stall” just before you hear the horn.
I just followed the link to read the NTSB statement and it appears the wording has changed: Also, about this time, the FDR data indicated that some small vertical accelerations consistent with the airplane entering turbulence. Shortly after, when the airplane’s indicated airspeed was steady about 2...Jump to post

Thats true about the AS SMF-SAN first class seats. My neighbor flies the SMF-SAN route pretty much weekly so I can see some frequent fliers looking for first class upgrades to probably defect to AS on that route. I live much closer to ONT and SNA but drive to SAN for SMF and BOI flights for AS upgr...Jump to post

If the plane was giving the Pilots in it wrong information, why can't you imagine it was giving FR24 recivers wrong reading too? Right - Garbage in, garbage out - But one wouldn't expect "ALL" data to be bad. ie: if it is a bad AoA reading, or bad airspeed reading, you should still expect...Jump to post
