El Paso and ABQ should have long enough runways, and would have the similar issue around parking as it seems PHX did. Anyways, pretty cool to see the pictures. I highly doubt either of those airports are qualified to handle an A380 diversion. A diversion of an aircraft that size requires more than ...Jump to post
This topic was discussed extensively when the story came out. Since this story is a few years old, the thread will be locked.
Stick to the topic or the thread will be locked.
Who knows. It's a Captain's decision and I'll let the Captain decide what's best. I will say though that it looks like they diverted right before they hit the storms and it looks nasty. https://i.imgur.com/mxJxwzc.png Source: FlightAware Looks like he boomeranged over to PHX (sorry, couldn't help m...Jump to post
Stick to the topic without personal attacks or the thread will be locked.
I'm not sure if they've found a solution yet — it's not something in our purview. I notice that all those that raised the issue, still do not have avatars on their profiles. That would make me think it has not been solved. One thing of which I was curious, is whether it is just us ... or can no one...Jump to post
This discussion took place quite recently and at great length. As this is an accusation rather than any sort of newsworthy incident, it indicates that no new information has come up since the last time this discussion occurred. Therefore, the thread will be locked.
The personal attacks and flamebait in this thread are ridiculous. Discuss the topic or please don't post. It isn't that difficult to show some respect to other users.Jump to post
Since the discussion has mostly turned to rehashing the original incident rather than the discussion at hand, the thread will be locked.
Please see the existing thread in the Tech/Ops Forum.
The first post says "Terror Express" Is that the official name of this flight? Or also political? You're right, and I nearly removed the thread because of it. I felt that it would unfairly punish the users engaging here in an apolitical manner if I did remove it. That sort of language isn...Jump to post
Political comments need to be kept out of this thread.

So from what I read in the posts above, I believe that there is no solution? - Correct me if I'm wrong as I might have missed something. I'm not sure if they've found a solution yet — it's not something in our purview. I recommend emailing [email protected].net. They would be aware of any possible ...Jump to post
They rented a hangar in Rockford to do maintenance. They are out of hangar space at their maintenance bases. They are sending mechanics from ORD, IAH, and SFO to perform ADSB mod and structural inspection. There will be four 777s going to Rockford but only one at a time. What’s the ADSB mod?

I would tend to doubt that. For one thing, DE's cost-structure is lower than LH's; I never looked at what DE's fares were, but I'm sure they were lower than what LH could offer, and that had to have played a role in DE's better-than-expected success. Plus there's still the issue of LH not really ha...Jump to post

The runways are maxed out, but there will still be incremental increase in pax with upgauging. After the new concourse is complete, what size planes will the new gates be able to hold? Are they limited to E-Jets, or could 737/A320 size fit or even a 757/321? Maybe other existing gates could be adju...Jump to post

If I posted the: 1) Flight date 2) Flight number 3) Names of the FAs involved / Captain 4) Pictures of the situation Would it have then met the trip report criteria?

I don't think this really meets the criteria of being a trip report, so I've moved it to the Travel Forum for further discussion.
atcsundevil, I disagree with you that Nextgen won't add capacity at DCA. The IFR acceptance rate is 28 per hour, which is what slots are based on. With Nextgen VFR becomes the new IFR with an acceptance rate of 32 per hour. In addition the short runways, which can be used by large regional jets and...Jump to post
That must have been extremely surreal. If you weren't aware of what was going on, you'd certainly be thinking the worst. We left YYZ at 0830, about the time the second tower was attacked. We had absolutely no idea what was going on. We bordered on, but never went into MSP airspace. However, both YY...Jump to post
I understand what you are getting at now. We were in Canadian airspace for our entire flight and the announcement was made on Winnipeg Centre frequency.

NORAD is a combined US - Canadian command and is responsible for air defense of the Alaska NORAD region (ANR), Canadian NORAD region (CANR), and CONUS NORAD region (CONR).

Ok, so "narrative" refers to the post, not the video itself, is that right? Like it can be just the flight video without being some sort of vlog.... It refers to the post.

I recall working that morning and was over the Praries on a YYZ-YXE flight. We heard the ATC broadcast ... "SCATANA, SCATANA, SCATANA. This is the United States Department of Defense.
