RE: Why Does A-330 And A-340 Have Sidesticks?

All Lufthansa pilots are happy with the STICK.... Lufthansa wants the 738's but will only take it if they can get it with a side stick

RE: Delta RetroJet

I am liking it. I wish airlines(mainly Delta and UAL) kept 1 DC-10, 1 727, and for <acronym title="Delta Air Lines (USA)">DL</acronym> kept 1 L1011 too... kept them in their colors from the 80's. IMO that would always bring a croud. and just having that one aircraft wouldnt harm cash flow that bad.

RE: F/As Scare Passengers!

after 13 hours... I would think there is a sllight possibility some people without common sense would forget what to do in case of a crash landing.

Probably just to reassure them what to do

My favorite movie of all time i cannot decide from the prop jet sounds as the engines to the blowing up the autopilot to hitting that one lady who is always wondering why her husband ordered what he did and then getting hit by all the passengers. But my favs are... Wrong week to stop smoking, drinki...

RE: Regarding The A380

KIAH... can easily support the A380... in terms of Taxiway's and runways... it takes the AN124 once a week.

IMO i think that any airport with DUAL jetways... such as EDDF that have 2 ramps to the plane will be able to support the A380.

Lufthansa's 200's are Ex Sabena and Swiss/Swiss Air planes. They are still getting the 300's delivered. 2 are in service... one into Cairo and the other into Boston(i think) Their 747-400's are 3 classes along with the a340-300. The new 600 is with the new biz class and the ex sabena/swiss were neve...
