Re: Has grandfathering been taken too far?

The current situation supports what was stated in your class. What are your thoughts on the 777X cert basis? Everything I've read on the 777X has me more confident than the MAX. Also, I think there's a lot more natural caution when wings and cockpits are changed. The only reason I’ve hinted at cred...

Re: Boeing 777-8/-9 Grandfathering Certification, 777X or 7X7?

Actually the 777X FBW system is not designed so it handles like the previous 777s. The 777X FBW system will function more like the 787. It has the same architecture and updated control laws as the 787. That's why I said that it "can" be but I didn't know if it "will be." So than...

Re: Longest A319 flight

I flew SFO-DTW on UA. It was a really long flight. That’s the winner. That’s the longest A319 flight. Not even close. Only 1800 nm. BOG-DFW is 2300 nm. SEA-MIA is 2370 nm. BOG-MVD is 2580 nm IAD-YVR is 2040 nm YVR-MIA is 2440 nm. Apparently you didn’t get that I was joking. AA’s past UIO-DFW Flight...
