Sorry I do not grew SIN should be #1. Still lots of shops are closed in the terminals (mainly Food outlets), and the additional QR codes still required for COVID are a joke. The taxi times to the new runway are a joke. CDG, MAD, and FCO should be nowhere near the top 20. They are all poorly maintain...Jump to post

I think you are barking up the wrong tree. The manoeuvring loads on this aircraft should be lower than the ER. It should be shorter sectors at lower weights.

AFAIK IAI has to make a lot of test flights to verify the enlarged flight envelope (higher operating weights), also the adapted software (777F - maneuver load allevation system) has to be demonstrated to the authorities, incl. smoke testing of the enlarged maindeck, compared to the 777F.

Off the top of my head, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia have no age limit.Jump to post
They could do a lot of things beyond simply raising the age to 67. One thing would be to allow them to fly, but not as CAPT, and only domestic. Japan implemented something like this, and it took hold at the regional level. Can't fly out of Japan above age 65, and can't fly anywhere with another pil...Jump to post

Maybe I'm missing some cultural nuance here (land-the-plane-itis?) but I don't see how offering a visual approach to an aircraft is a safety issue.

Yes the 737NG and 737MAX are capable of Cat3b autolands, but it’s an optional feature. You have to purchase the Fail-Operational option. So in fact many current 737s are not capable of Cat3b landings. Not to mention the airline needs to be approved, the crew need to be trained and current, the airp...Jump to post

I'll jump in on this, too. The control computers (black boxes) on the aircraft have more and more redundant channels. These computers cross-talk to each other, along with having a modeling channel, in some instancees, that tell the computer how it should act/function. I will say that these improvem...Jump to post
One other thing I will add that might contribute to the turning difference... The Airbus (at least the 330) limits bank angle above certain altitudes and at high true airspeeds. The 737NG does not. In fact, there were times we would limit the bank manually in the 737 when a heading was given at cru...Jump to post
Technically speaking, the transition from indicated to mach is at FL280, although I typically assign indicated speeds FL290 and below, and mach FL300 and above. Transition is not static at Fl280 all depends on indicated vs mach, for example a A350 would climb out at say 310 KIAS into M0.85, transit...Jump to post

This thread title would not be correct, the flight was HND-KIX-HND. They did not land at FUK.
I think from a service recovery point of view return to HND was probably the best move, passengers could then be accommodated and placed onto the next flight.
A few airlines have systems where you can directly uplink the route with all the waypoints from the company into the FMS/MCDU. But, my question is, where do the airlines monitor this and who keeps track of them? Do they have databases for all their routes which is stored? Also, since oceanic routes...Jump to post
It’s like when the 737 jumpseat pilot once turned the Rudder Trim Switch rather than the Flight Deck Door unlock switch. Fortunately they recovered. That was not a jump seat passenger, it was the FO.

Presumably, in the absence of payment of "damages or compensation" most of the cost of the settlement will be repairs under warranty agreements, which would not be regarded as an unusual expense in the accounts.

The shape of them can change the lineup allowance from a 180 to a 90. Effectively increases the TORA.
TORA normally starts from the end of the yellow taxi line.
