RE: Bono: A True Christian?

When you take a minute to speak about GOD with other guys that observe another religion you realize that there are more things alike than different, really the big diferences are basically Rites.....

I really admire Mr. Bono to come forward with that idea of unity

RE: What If The A-380 Fails?

Different engines consume fuel at different ratios: Example the 737-200 is much more consuming than lets say the same thrust engine in a 737-700....fuel Consumption has improved a lot in these years. But I doubt that P&W has made a new engine twice as efficient provided the same fuel or just better ...

RE: More MX News (QA Included)

If Mexicana gave back 752 for A321 its going to be a huge mistake, since temps in Mexico will be an all time high so weight and hot and high conditions will make an A321 take off a hairy situation..... Maybe the cargo bays on the 752 were empty or underutilized so a A321 was/is a better plane for th...
