is true, not sure what you've been looking at but I've got our real world data right here. I've compared our 772s with 789s on our Houston, Newark and several other routes. The fuel burn advantage of the 789 is 20%. I thought you were saying the 789 is 20% less than the A350. We have had a lengthy ...Jump to post
I pointed out the 789 had ~20% better trip fuel burn at similar payloads on similar routes. That simply is not true, we have been through that in a lot of detail on another thread using real performance data with the same payload over various stage lengths. The A350, at similar payloads, saved $4,0...Jump to post

Safety management might have been the issue with PIA that was initially on the EU’s radar, but it certainly isn’t the only one now and it is unlikely the ban will be lifted until EASA has confidence in Pakistan’s pilot certifying standards and oversight.

EASA/the EU blacklists entire countries if they need to. I would not be so confident that PIA/Pakistan won’t face that issue if they fail to satisfy the EASA’s pilot license concerns. Yes EASA can blacklist a country, however the process will involve first to identify the problem and then give an o...Jump to post

EASA directly calls out the validity of Pakistani pilot licenses (and subsequently Pakistan’s ability to oversee and certify its operators and airlines) in their letter announcing the ban. Ultimately fake pilot licenses are a symptom, a symptom of poor and ineffective oversight. But it is not a coi...Jump to post
And the EU has quite a good reason to ban them. Perhaps all PIA pilots can show their flight skills in an EU simulator to filter out the bad apples and speed up the process of resuming flights to the EU (and other western countries)? It has nothing to do with pilot licences, they have not implement...Jump to post
I never argued that the 777X is better than the A350, all I did was point out the 80% load factor argument is stupid. It isn't stupid, it is reality. When selecting aircraft airlines use historic load facts they have over a route network, never 100% load factors. With airlines having typical system...Jump to post
While the A346 could carry more payload further the 777W was cheaper to operate, while still having enough usable payload for most operators and being larger than the A346 (which just made the per seat cost comparisons worse for the A346). The A346’s payload advantage was only significant for opera...Jump to post
Hello everyone, I’m currently obtaining my night rating and preparing for my first solo. My instructor said I’m all good to go. However, I’m just super anxious about flying alone in the dark.

They said that >60 deg S, magnetic bearings don't work. Announced by the crew. That is not quite correct, the issue is not the latitude it is the proximity to the magnetic north or south poles.

Its about as stupid as assuming that extra seats means extra revenue. Depends which side your favourite aircraft sits in the argument really.

The controller was getting some attitude from the pilot, she obviously had a very busy frequency for the pilot to take up so much time.
The things that were switched off corresponded to the ability to track the plane, and were then followed by deliberate turns and the aircraft remained aloft for hours afterwards according to satellites. A fire would have cut things short much quicker than that. No, these events were deliberate, not...Jump to post
The things that were switched off from the cockpit, when they were in the flight, as well as the course the plane took does not support a hijacking. There is no evidence to support a claim that items were turned off in the cockpit. A fire or damage to wiring can also have the same effect. As an asi...Jump to post

It is messy if the type certificate was active. Boeing gave Basler the DC-3 certificate. They also gave Basler a complete set of drawings and all the certification documentation.

My uneducated guess is the oldest 77Es will be starting to go out in 2027 at the earliest which will give time for the A350 to get a PIP or 2.

Why not? Because pilots (generally) don't want it. Performance monitoring is a very touchy subject.
