#1 L-1011 TriStar #2 Tu-160 (the white swan) #3 Tu-144 For me comparing the Tu-144 and the Concorde is like comparing the first 3 Star Wars movies (episodes 4-6) with the second batch (episodes 1-3). The Concorde is elegant and sleek so optimised (like Star Wars 1-3 or an Audi R8 car). But the Tu-14...Jump to post

Majority of customers will be happy about no recline. I completely agree with that! I'm so glad that they remove the reclining function as no one on the short flight should have a need to use it. On a side note: - Fixed recline for all seats will be 20° (12° on current Recaros). - Seats in the forw...Jump to post
LH has just announced several changes to its long haul routes, per: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/277954/lufthansa-w18-long-haul-changes-as-of-03apr18/ Some interesting changes: FRA-BKK back up to A380 for W18 FRA-IAH B748 will replace A380. (Surprised they are not using A346). ...Jump to post
I've been on that flight. I've booked it just to fly 747 and was really disappointed when they changed to A330 5 days before departure. But even the A330 was pretty empty so I guess the change was due to low demand. A 747 would have been a waste that day. To me it felt like half of the passengers w...Jump to post

The placard above the FO speed indicator says N664UA, which makes it a 767-300ER.
On the very left of the Captains Main Panel is a placard with "763W", maybe for 767-300 Winglets?
But apart from that I don't know how to tell 757 and 767 apart from that perspective.
There's a presentation video in the Lufthansa Intranet about the developement of the new livery. In that video they also show other livery drafts that have been considered but disregarded. Many of the drafts from this very forum thread are shown there and obviously lost against the final livery. May...Jump to post
In flight school I've met some people from time to time who were technically able to fly a plane solo (good airmanship) but legally not allowed as they havn't got their medical clearance. I'm not sure about the US but in Europe you need a Medical clearance to fly solo. Flight training with an instru...Jump to post
The downsides of operating the A346 are all well known, but with these aircraft being relatively young (specially having been maintained by LH), fully paid for, and fuel being cheap, you would have thought they'd operate them until a) the end of their lives or b)fuel rises again, whatever comes fir...Jump to post
Naaaa, the national colours at the top of the tail fin would remind many people of Interflug: 2400666 In fact, German flag on the top of the vertical stabilizer is mandatory by law for every German registred aircraft.

According to https://twitter.com/lufthansaNews/status/952883086269845504 the first 777-9 test plane will eventually be delivered to Lufthansa in 2021.

Well, even though this wasn't an airshow, the SSJ crash in Indonesia may fit somehow in your categorization:
My last flight with smoking allowed in the last couple of rows was with Condor on a FRA-HOG-FRA flight in 2003.
It was extremely awful.
It's interesting that Crossair didn't consider the Dornier 728/928 and now (as Swiss International/Global Air Lines) they were the launch customer for another 5-abreast aircraft in the CS100. As for how it would perform compared to the E-Jet...was this to be a rear-engined jet or with wing-mounted ...Jump to post
Let's say, that there would be a possibility for opening a route from HEL to SYD and/or MEL. The distance is just slightly over 8000nmi, so should be within range for some commercial airliners already. Feeder traffic from/to elsewhere in Europe would make it possible to fill the planes (up to 500 p...Jump to post
I've seen a documentry about 10 years ago, comparing the Tu154 with the B727.
Both were built in similar amounts and had a comparable service life.
But the 727 crashed way more often and killed more passengers than the Russian counterpart, even though it has been used in less demanding environments.
There’s no such thing as an arrival runway and a departure runway. Any runway can be used for takeoff and landing and any pilot can request a runway they need for operational reason. You haven't been around much at multi runway airports around the world. Even LHR with only two runways has one that ...Jump to post
The US is lucky to have domestic flights at all. Here in the Netherlands we don't have any domestic flights, not on wide bodies and not on narrow bodies either.

So Lufthansa finally revoked the purchase of NIKI:
No GE 744 have V-Pods because the engine fan are too big to be fitted in a pod for ferry. I don't know if any PW 744 operator ordered V-Pod feature. RR : 86in , PW 94in , GE 106in.

Ken Follet wrote a book entitled "Night Over Water". It is fiction, but true to his form, he must have put an enormous amount of research into it, as it appears very accurate. It is about a Boeing 314 flight across the Atlantic, and ... it's a 300 page "trip report". If you can ...Jump to post

Considering that the Recaro CL6710 is very similar to the Zodiac Optima and it is confirmed that LH is using a customized version, I think it is hard to tell which is used. But according to sources close to LH, the new seat is from a German partner, which should be Recaro. Regarding the strong coop...Jump to post
