Re: Feasibility of a 737-900ER freighter

So if the 739(ER) is already bad performing on take-offs/landings, I guess we'll never see a 737-MAX10 P2F conversion then, although Boeing is making adjustments to increase landing gear height.

Re: 777 - 25 years in commercial service

Since I’m a 90’s kid, I’ve been lucky enough to board both a 9-abreast as well as a 10-abreast 777. I’m not that big of a person so this is completely person, but I’d rather sit in a 10-abreast 777 than and old non-refurbished 9-abreast I experienced on BA 2 years ago. It felt like the aircraft was ...

Re: Flybe News and Discussion Thread Update: Flybe ceases flying, enters administration

Sad that this small but important airline ceases flying. Really curious to see how the development of new routes will go on de domestic UK market, as well as routes from BHX, EXT etc.

Loganair would be a good candidate, if they would manage to increase their fleet significantly on a short term.

Re: What Would You Do? Flight Over Iranian Airspace Tomorrow

I’d personally thrust on the advise of the authorities. Seen it after the. MH17 crash that the particular area was being avoided by airlines. That being said, many commercial flights still cross Iraq/Afghanistan etc. Personally I’m not a big fan out of it, but what can you do? Airlines sometimes cha...

Re: Nigerian authorities threaten to ban Turkish Airlines

Airlines, including Turkish, are obligated to carry passengers luggage if it is within operating limits of the particular aircraft being used at that time. I'll ask the question again, if lots of passengers turn up at the airport with lots of excess baggage and it can't all be carried, how is that ...

Re: Amsterdam Schipol Runways

Most important reasons are the wind and the airport is close to houses. The airport tries to split out- and inbound traffic between certain runways of which the 36L is most used for take-offs and 18R for landings. There are certain peaks where 3 runways are in use at the same time (2 inbound + 1 out...
