Any news on the rumoured US3 service to DPS thread that started early this year?
Any idea what QR will do about the 2 747-8Fs? Cargo demand caused by covid seems to have slowed down a bit, and they are the definition of an oddball in the QR cargo fleet, with only 2 of them, and the rest of the fleet being 777Fs. I'm actually surprised that AAB has held on to them as long as he d...Jump to post

No US airline will serve India unless and until Russian overflight is possible. If and when that happens, the most likely candidates are UA on SFO-DEL/BOM, AA on ORD/JFK-DEL/BOM (or DFW-DEL/BOM if they have the right aircraft), and DL ATL-DEL/BOM or JFK-DEL/BOM. UA still is flying EWR-DEL. In addit...Jump to post

So it's like they'll train you from zero experience to ATP level or something? Is it possible for say, a college student taking a R-ATP degree to finish their degree and go into this academy? Or will they have to go via a different propel program to get to DL? Just curious, as I want to be a pilot f...Jump to post
All, I've started PPL training a couple of weeks ago, and on the first ground lesson, my instructor told me that for some early stage PPL flying like leveling off, keeping nose on horizon, rudder coordination, etc that I could refine those skills with use of a PC home simulator. Obviously he warned ...Jump to post
Middle East Airlines/MEA
List from simple flying. I’m pretty sure most of these airlines had the Boeing 2707 on order as well but obviously cancelled.
AI has service to SFO from BOM/DEL/BLR. I'm surprised they don't at least have one service to LAX given all the flights to SFO.
Then again, it's highly likely that AI will add flights given their WB expansion.

Seems the 787-10 would be cheaper and lower cost than the a350-1000 which has too much range for the routes DL would use it for. I personally wouldn't say the range is too much. I think it is perfect for resuming India (while avoiding russia, which adds flight time/distance), and perhaps maybe othe...Jump to post

I have to say, it looks sharp in the DL scheme!
Do you know the exact place in the Caribbean that you are headed to?
I don’t know if any scheduled airlines fly from Italy to the Caribbean directly, but there are plenty of 1 stop options. I don’t know anything about charter so someone else may have to chime in there.

I understand the catering to whims part. It is the parents' sole responsibility to ensure that their childs' needs are attended to.

Depressurising the cabin doesn’t help fight a fire. There might not be enough O2 up there to sustain consciousness but plenty to sustain a fire. The best you can hope is the outflow valves might evacuate a bit of smoke. It doesn’t slow the progression of the fire at all Depressurization would have ...Jump to post

The alpha-sierra-sierra in question used a broken metal spoon and stabbed the F/A 3 times in the neck. Ouch.
Seriosuly, I'd imagine flying wouldn't attract as many belligerent people as say, the MARTA, but then again, it's the 2020s.
Never specified anywhere whether the pax in question had a seatbelt on.
On a different note, RIP to the deceased pax.

This airline must be so cheap to buy right now. I think it would be a great buy for an ambitious US airline like Delta. Me personally, I find this unlikely, considering that AF/KL/VS/AZ could do more for DL than investing in CSA. Considering DL's own metal only extends to a seasonal JFK-PRG flight,...Jump to post
With DL pilots approving a new contract and a scope agreement to maintain/increase international flying, will we now see the A35K + A339 orders soon as they've been rumored heavily on this thread?

Air India is beyond underdeveloped internationally, a country market the size of India should have twice as much international service by it's flag carrier.
