It would be really nice to see Ghana start a flag carrier. They're in the perfect position to connect Europe with West Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, SA. In addition with proper planning (and some 763ERs or 788s) they could do well flying to IAD, JFK/EWR, and ATL. I think the Ghanaian diaspora is only ...Jump to post
Good grief- some of the hottest parts on the exterior of the most famous Lockheed plane of them all were composite materials. They stood up to the demands of M3.0+ flight, sometimes even faster for some incredibly long missions. Missions that were far longer than any Concorde flight and had more he...Jump to post

Wonder if there was any impact on DCA arrivals/departures?
I just did a dummy search for Oct 14-18 and D1 is readily available. Fares range from $3,791-$5,178 RT. The higher fares are the first few flights of the day. Are there specific dates you're looking at? For domestic business/first? $5,000? You gots to be kidding. What kind of fool pays this sort of...Jump to post

The a380 plus was never built.
I'm based in DC and used Independence Air quite a lot out of IAD in the past. IAD-BUF-IAD and IAD-SAV-IAD. Cramped CRJ-200s for the most part (I am tall), I never flew their Airbus A319s (or where they 320s?).

I don't recall there being a Taiwanese issue with traffic rights on the KUL- TPE sector for a flight continuing to YVR... Sounds odd.

I've long had a concept for a three-class narrowbody airliner with J at 2-2, W at 2-3, and Y at 3-3. Obviously this would be a plane that flies longer international routes. 2-3 in W differentiates the premium economy class a bit more while offering them more than a few inches of leg room.Jump to post

You nonsensically try to refute people posting statements based on published documents and people that actually fly the aircraft. :shakehead: As a non pilot, it looks to me based on documents I've reviewed that a A359 WV010 could transport almost 31 metric tons 8,100 nautical miles.

I'd love to see this extrapolation, especially given that the payload figures given by ITSTours appear to be erroneous (all the same to the 8th decimal for every month for both routes?...) and that the actual take off weight is not given...

According to moyangmm , B747-400 wouldn't be able to make LAX-SYD either as it's manufacturer full passenger stated range was ~7,270nmi. QF used 747-400ER, which has more range than regular 747-400. Boeing's range is now very conservative (after they adjusted the range). You can see 787 outperforms...Jump to post
