Regarding Air China, their logo is actually a stylised VIP. It's actually both a stylized Phoenix and VIP. I cannot see a VIP in that logo. One needs a lot of imagination.

QF 497 left SYD a bit late tonight ? 17 minutes after the curfew. (23.17) Maybe has VIP passengers onboard heading to Crown casino and got dispensation ? Strangely, FlightAware shows it as a 2257 departure, SYD airport shows it as 2255. FlightRadar did indeed show it as 2316. I only have a vague un...Jump to post
I flew on a brand new 787 on China Southern, and the seat recline was broken. Also, I was not happy with a lot of the panels that were loose. Overall, it felt lower quality compared to older planes. You have no idea, buddy. Particularly relating to the seat - unless you know for a fact you were the...Jump to post
In an SNL skit mocking WN, they used a flight number with letters in it. I wondered why it was they were using it, as I have never seen WN with a letter in the flight number.

Can you explain the source of this? You wrote this in the first person perspective (we) so it's written like a Delta press release or an internal announcement. Which can be very unwise, really.

Sort of aviation-related I suppose, in terms of media which cover airlines etc. Australian Business Traveller seems to be no more, it's now 'Executive Traveller'. AusBT.com.au redirects to https://www.executivetraveller.com. This was first announced back in April. Really don't like the name or logo.Jump to post
Is this for sure what route the aircraft will take or just what similar aircraft usually take ? What is the situation with crewing ? Does one crew fly the whole flight, and how long does a journey like this usually take ? I assume that the crew would then be flown back to Europe after having droppe...Jump to post
Cobham's first Q400 has just ferried to SNN for painting, expect it to arrive in PER before the end of the month. Three year old frame, ex D-ABQS of LGW/Air Berlin. What kind of a routing would that take on it's way to Perth ? Would seem like quite a long journey with quite a few stops en-route. Sa...Jump to post
Here's the first Cobham Q400, now painted in full livery. To become VH-IYJ.

Door/slide is supposed to disarm when the outside handle is opened. Either this was a failure or it was opened from the inside (most likely the case) and the person forgot to disarm, or didn't know how to Or, somehow, the cabin crew forgot to disarm/crosscheck that particular door.

The majority of aircraft door mechanisms take quite a determined shove to move the handle or lever, so you do have to wonder how the passenger didn’t wonder why it was so difficult to open a toilet door. Exactly. And the power assist feature that most doors have doesn't take over as quickly as some...Jump to post
Certainly goes against the conventional wisdom that pax don't know what aircraft they're travelling on. Remember, there's a tendency for people to evaluate the kind of aircraft they fly on thanks to incidents like this. It's relatively accurate that most people wouldn't know, nor care, if they're o...Jump to post
The main problem with SST's wasn't economics or reliability in my opinion, but ecological impact and the sonic boom throughout the whole flight where you are above Mach 1. This isn't adressed here . There's nothing to be addressed in regards to the sonic boom. It's all to do with an object travelin...Jump to post

VH-ZPT still remains in JetGo colours, but has had the Cobham titles painted onto both sides of the fuselage. It makes me wonder whether this aircraft is here temporarily.

Cobham Aviation Embraer ERJ-190 VH-ZPT (ex VA and JetGo) is currently on it's way to Perth from Cairns. It arrived into Cairns wearing the JetGo livery (minus titles) on 15th May flying Nashville (BNA) - Van Nuys (VNY) - Hilo (ITO) - Cairns (CNS).

Someone please find the specs - as others indicated a smaller jet in the western world does not have the ability to dump, the 737 and A320 cannot, did the Russians incorporate it into the 100 ?

Seriously, though, vomit happens all the time on airplanes. I'd like to hear from other flight attendants what standard procedure is when a passenger-contact location like a seat is covered in spew. It has to be reported, right? Was that the case here? Or did the flight crew before not notice? Or c...Jump to post
As many people have stated, it's the customer code. For example, Continental's 737-800's are 737-824's, Southwest's 737's are 737-7H4's and 737-8H4's, Delta's 737's are 737-832's and 932ER's, and so on and so on.

Gang, in looking at Delta's A350 fleet, it seems some have the curved winglet and some have the straighter, thinner winglet. But I'm not led to believe any are the XWB version.
