RE: First Flight On BA's New 787 = Awful

Sounds horrible.

Which other airlines has the same type of seats on the 787?

RE: A350 Windshield Question

I am also a big fan of the black mask. Like sunglasses, it makes it look cool and a little bit like the space shuttle. All the rederings of the A350 in airline liveries also sport it. I don't think the airlines have the option to not have it, probably stipulated in contract even. Kind of surprised a...

Apparently, a Norwegian 787 flight from Bangkok was cancelled today due to a fuel valve leak. A video of the leak was posted here (in Norwegian):

Could The 777 Be Extended With A Hump?

I know that this would be far fetched and that it really is not on any road map for now but I think the idea is worth discussing. Since the 777 is such a bestseller which grows bigger and bigger, would it be at all feasible that a future version of the type could sport a 747-style hump? What would t...
