Re: LGB files criminal charges against Mesa Airlines for noise violations

The city prosecutor is taking the rare step of filing criminal charges against a carrier that operates at Long Beach Airport, alleging it violated the city’s noise ordinance. City Prosecutor Doug Haubert, in a email sent late Thursday, said Mesa Airlines, doing business as American Eagle—an affilia...

Re: Boeing 737MAX Grounded Worldwide Q3 2019

At what point can airlines just return an unusable jet to Boeing for a full refund? Airplane is unusable through no fault of the customer, but entirely the manufacturers fault. Return, refund and go find something else to fly. May take a while, but there is no end in sight for this bs. Airlines are...

Re: KLM calls for people to fly less

In Europe recently flying, especially short haul, has received a lot of criticism from environmentalist organisations. They do have a valid argument seeing that it is scientifically proven that the impact on the environment is a lot higher per mile / per pax when you fly, compared to taking a (high...

Re: KLM calls for people to fly less

I like the statement in the article "The airline itself is using 57 times more biofuel than in 2011" in the article. It says absolutely nothing. They could have used 1 kg in 2011 and 57 kg this year... Of course they are doing green-washing, they do not like to be the big bad wolf here - ...

Re: What will be the next revolution in air travel?

Small electric taxi service drones for short jumps. About 20 years away. Agreed. Electric aircraft is the future. I think the reduced noise will see electric begin to operate from smaller airports. This is where these electric taxi aircraft will operate. I expect them to be single pilot operating. ...

Re: Boeing and WN sued over 737 MAX safety issues

I don't understand how a lawyer even took the time to file this. I could see a stockholder lawsuit based on these claims maybe but not passenger. In order to be awarded anything (in any US jurisdiction that I know of) the plaintiffs have to prove they were harmed in some way. Choosing to buy a tick...

Re: Air China announces 20x A359 order

Not going to happen as A350-1000 is exit-limited to 440 pax. Michael Currently yes but maybe in the future the number could rise... The A330-900 has had an exit-limit of 440...has had recently...and than Cebu Pacific has asked Airbus for more. And now the exit limit is uprated to 460 PAX and tthe n...

Re: KLM calls for people to fly less

I’ll go against the trend by declaring trains as vile environmental disasters, politically and monopoly driven anachronisms that need to be discouraged. They cut the landscape in half, they separate communities, they create massive costs in the form of bridges and traffic problems for pedestrians, c...

Re: KLM calls for people to fly less

And everyone and everything needs to be refashioned so that less CO2 emissions are produced. You're going to find a lot of people in this forum who do not accept the science behind that position. There are a lot of people who are “flat Earthers” too. Climate change is not a scientific fact, at leas...

Re: Business Risk for Boeing: The A321XLR

One area where the NMA can make a difference is the cruise speed as the M.78 cruise speed of the XLR is not ideal for flight duration reaching 8 to 10 hours. A NMA cruising at M.85 or M.86 could save up to 50 minutes or so on a 4500nm flight compared to the XLR. In the grand scheme of things, is a ...
