757 Cabin CRT Replacement With LCD - Why Not?

I fly many flights on <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> 757's. Today I had one with winglets and a slightly upgraded <acronym title="Avianca (Colombia)">AV</acronym> system using a Teac hard drive based system as opposed to the older tape systems. One thing that I always wonder abo...

RE: Former 787 Chief Disses Supply Chain

I work for a major consumer electronics company (based here in the US) and I remember when we switched to outsourcing our product manufacturing overseas. It was a mess at first. Issues with language, culture, common documentation formats, and systems. We've now been doing it for a few years and thin...

wow. amazing. I agree that the silence is deafening. Just creepy. I'd have to buy new underwear after being in that plane. So glad he had a parachute.

RE: The Official 787 Rollout Thread!

When setting my Tivo up to record it from DirectTV, the summary said that Tom Brokaw was the host and that there's a musical guest. Interesting.

On the long flights, I then hit the bathroom when I get settled in my seat and change into pajamas. I wear a pair of sweatpants, wool socks, and a tshirt. This makes me v...

RE: United Launches "Dolce Vita" Service To Rome Italy

Does anyone know if <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> is using 777's already configured for 3 class from other routes, or are they going to be "new" configs. Meaning new seats, etc...? Just curious, I'd love to fly there in a newer interior.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/sm...
