Whassup!

I'm 22 years old and I'm from Malaysia. I'm currently studying in the University of South Alabama in Mobile, USA. Aviation has always been my interest since childhood. Besides studying and goofing around I'll try to catch up on the latest in the aviation world. I drive a '94 red Pontiac Firebird in ...

RE: 747-400ER Offered To Airlines

I think that the 747-400ER would only be a stopgap until a more advance (more redesign ???) 747X would appear. The situation with the 747-400ER, I think, will be similar to that of the 747-300 in the early 80s. The -300 had limited production orders and most waited for the -400s so expect the new -4...

L-1011s Lounge.

The TriStar had the option of a lower deck lounge. It would take the place of the lower belly service center. The only known operator who took the lower lounge option was PSA. PSA took 3 aircraft and optioned on 2 more which were later taken over by LTU. The PSAs and LTUs machine had protective skid...

RE: Opinions Of Klia (KUL)?

I agree with Mas777. Where MAS is right now is admirable taking into consideration that MAS operates 36 domestic flights at a loss because of government fare regulations. As for MAS staff (both ground and inflight) I think they are just as good or if not better than SIA. Here we can testify on the f...

RE: B737-900/A321

I would say the A321s principal competitor is the B757. The 737-900 actually carries the same amount of pax as that of the 737-800 due to the fact that it would need extra emergency exits in order for them to carry more than the 738. The 737-900 therefore gave airliners the options of carrying more ...

They Were There Long Before 707

To make long story short let's say that Boeing had built the P-26 Peashooter fighter back in the late 1920s. The Boeing 247, 307 and 377 among its more famous propliner. Boeing also made the famous bombers - B-17s, B-29s, B-50s, B-47s and the B-52s. Oh, Boeings history of aircraft development is so ...

Been to KLIA many-many times. I agree with you guys on that. The airport is a marvel and all they need now is for staff with the right attitude.

RE: Malaysian International Economy Class

I might be a Malaysian but I'm not being bias if I say that MAS does a good job. Should expect excellent inflight service. I'll be flying on MAS this coming May 5th from LAX-TPE-KUL. I think all of the 744 has been retrofitted with the new interior similar to the 777s (PTVs, Multi media library and ...

MD-11 In Asia

I've flown the MD-11 several times. 5 times with EVA Air and once with JAL (Tufted Puffin...I guess that would be JA8860). I like the MD-11 alot, it's spacious and comfortable, just like its older sister the DC-10. I've also flown on the DC-10-30, twice with MAS and once with Northwest.

RE: Water-injected Engines

The water injection used on the JT9D-3W or -7AW turbofan works differently. The water is carried in the wing of the 747 (those operating with those engines). The water is flowed through the core of the engine to lower the operating temperature thus providing higher thrust. It is used mostly during t...

Definitely not Korean Air. KAL has a gold like color stripe along the blue.
It aint Asiana either. Could be one of the former Soviet republic airlines operating western jets. Kazakhstan Airlines ???

The 'Union Flag' color scheme looks just as bad as the world images.
BA should have stayed with the old color as it looks stately and majestic.

Air India's B747

Does anyone know why Air India's 747s have extra sets of windows on its main deck ? The area in question is in the vicinity of the wing, between doors 2 & 3.
I know that the area are normally blanked off. Thanks.
