RE: A380 Beginning To Look Good?

"It`s not a real beauty like the A332" I'm sorry, but the true beauty of the skies will always be the 757.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> <br><center><font color="#EEEEEE" size="1" face="ARIAL, Helvetica, Geneva"><a href="/open.file/722956/L/" target="_blank">View Lar...

RE: 737 Production Rate

That was one of the questions I hoped would be answered IADBGO. Lets say that either Air Asia or Air Berlin would have went with the 737NG instead of Airbus, would their orders been put at the end of the list or are there spots open towards the top. I can not see telling an airline that we are curre...

RE: US Airways Sickout Yesterday.

"it seems that passengers are unwilling to pay more." That is simply not the case, American has tried several times now to raise fares only to drop them back down when other legacy carriers do not follow. A fare hike straight across the board would help all airlines!! I would glady pay 20% more for ...

737 Production Rate

Currently what is the average # of 737's Boeing is producing each month now? With the 757 line now shut down is it possible to take that work force and double up the production of the 737 to get the product out to their customers faster? As of the end of November, there were only 26 767's on back or...

RE: A380 Beginning To Look Good?

Is it just me, I just cannot judge the true size of this beast until I see it with my own eyes or parked next to another wide body for comparison. I saw on here awhile back someone had posted a link showing an animated sketch of a 380 sitting over what was decided on here by many what looked like a ...

A bus costs at the most (Guessing) $100,000 to $250,000.00, where as a plane will cost in the millions of d...

I had moved to the Dallas area to go to college and met him through friends in the Dallas area. I was scared the one time i rode in a car with him down I-30 to Rockw...
