I'm sorry, my comments were apparently misinterpreted. Singapore_Air likes to think he is some kind of authority on SQ...which is hardly the case for a kid. He is constantly telling people on the forum how he is 'calling SQ' and 'relaying their problems to managment' which is a bunch of bullshit. I ...Jump to post
Boeing had the opportunity to put any cockpit it wanted in the 737NG..the overhead panel was left because airlines wanted it that way. All those systems, warnings, and controls could have easily been placed in other locations. Beancounters love the 737NG (as well as the classics). They are reliable,...Jump to post
Why is the Star of David in 'italics' on the tail?
It looks like an afterthought.
I think the 700 was actually certified a month early..so I don't think deliveries would be late. I'm not sure who is in line after Brit Air, however Lufthansa was not an early customer, so I didn't think they would be receiving them until this summer at the earliest.Jump to post
It's too boring. I'm sick of the ribbon/streamer/wave look.
The 70's scheme was very bold and the graphics very interesting.
Fan_I_Am you should change your name to Fanatic_I_am. Your posts make no sense. You say you are a pilot. I don't think most forum members would believe that. I would hate to think of any airline that would allow that type of temper in the cockpit. I don't think many member really care about your pos...Jump to post
Chances are mom or dad may have been diplomats. I've asked on occasion why a whole family would be up front and the they were nice enough to tell me that their gov't subsidized the fares for the entire family.
So I guess we now have something else in which to blame our parents!
Hands down...BA (twice) then Qantas... then maybe SQ (food was not that great...seats are a strange color... Greg/ Interesting the number of teenagers who say they fly firstclass. I've rarely seen anyone under 30 in the forward cabin. I'm lucky to have my corporate agent bump me about twice a year.Jump to post
Pan Am's relationship with Airbus was only fleeting at best. They were the only one's willing to extend them credit on aircraft after nine years of losses. Had Pan Am survived in a relatively healthy financial manner, I believe they would have continued there strong relationship with both Boeing and...Jump to post
For the folks who fly Southwest HOU-DAL and vv. on Monday mornings its a virtual Who's Who in the energy industry. Senior execs from Texaco, Exxon, Hess, Phillips, and Dow are regulars on these flights (it's almost a club). If, for any reason Bicoastal, you think these gents and ladies are low life'...Jump to post
most cargo is not 'next-day'. but a lot of it still has to go faster than ground/sea transport. there are no interim options. the cost per tonne is considerably less than standard airfreight and in some instances less than slow freighter. this is based on the projected cost of the non-rigid airships...Jump to post
Southwest won't go for the -800 because the FAA requires one add'l flight attendant for these aircraft. Although, the add'l revenue from the seats would cover the cost of the f/a...it does not fall within the profit multiplier SW uses. Anyway..they would prefer to offer another frequency instead. Be...Jump to post
If I'm not mistaken, aren't the DC-10, A300, A310, and 767 all cleared for operations into DCA under certain weight restrictions (probably mostly empty!). I think this was the subject of another thread and I was very surprised to hear it....Jump to post
In most cases, counsel advises prosective clients about the legal rights they not otherwise know about. You can hardly trust SQ to settle claims with victims without representation! Lawyers are essential in settling these types of claims. Yes, there is a lot of money involved, but the victims will h...Jump to post
I did a SQ roundtrip from the West Coast (LAX outbound returning through SFO) on my way from TX to S'pore. I was very surprised that the service on each leg was far less than I expected. Although the Raffles seats are comfortable, they do not approach the comfort of BA's cradle seat in Club World. W...Jump to post
I imagine the moment Delta, American/TWA or UAL/US takes serious notice of JB...it will only be a matter of time before it's history. There have been very few starts up that have lasted. And although, JB is 'high frills' and 'low fares' it is still 'high cost' (those new airbuses are NOT cheap. Pers...Jump to post
