Looks like UA started SFO-IDL with DC-7 equip. on 1 Jun 54. Would also be curious as to when TW started this service.
I would assume that all HA services to mainland west coast will be served by A321 aircraft as quickly as additional aircraft are introduced into the fleet. That would be in line with most other carriers that offer predominately single aisle aircraft on those same routes, and presumably why HA invest...Jump to post
What name has been given to F100, VH-NHQ?
Came across this SFO photo on the data base. Can anyone remark on the Flying Tigers hangar history? From a distance it looks similar to today's UA hangar. Was it renamed at some point? I realize that this photo is almost 50 years old, however the overall airport layout looks very unfamiliar to me - ...Jump to post
I passed through Jetblue's JFK T5 recently and noticed that the Saarinen tubular walkways do not connect the two buildings. I assumed that this was due to the construction of the TWA hotel. Were these tubes ever available for JetBlue passengers to walk from the Saarinen building to the rebuilt gates...Jump to post
Looks like one 772 is done with its reconfiguration and another is headed to HKG for reconfiguration
N775AN 7AF finished
I thought that the 772 reconfiguration to the Super Diamond J seats began last July, with N783AN being the first.
What reconfiguration is N775AN receiving?
The first SYD-TYO nonstop I see is in the Jul 1973 QF timetable. QF262/263 operated with B707 equipment. In the Mar 1973 timetable QF262/263 operates to TYO via MNL. The oldest timetable I have is from 1971, which shows TYO services via HKG as well. timetableimages.com is a great source for earlier ...Jump to post
Runway 10L arrivals at SFO are extremely rare, as are Runway 01R arrivals - but on occasion they do occur. Runway 19L landings are fairly common in winter months.
Regarding the crew rest area forward of door 2R on some BA 772s, it's hard to imagine a curtained off crew bunk and lavatory in this area - as BA has such a beautifully designed First Class cabin. I'm certain that BA designed the rest area to blend in. Are any images of this noted area available on ...Jump to post
I'm curious about the blocked window area forward of door R2 on some BA 777-236ERs. Can anyone describe the area that is along that section - and the need for blocked windows? At first I assumed that this was a galley area - until I read of a reference to it being some kind of crew rest area. Thanks...Jump to post
On the former F14 C38 W36 Y263 (2000-2007?) BA 747 configuration, does anyone recall how Club World was set up? Was it 20 on upper deck and remainder on main deck?
Also, are any 747s still operating in the F14 C70 W30 Y185 configuration?
Thanks for any replies.
Can anyone explain why 8 of the 20 Qantaslink 717s are operated by Cobham for Qantaslink and the remainder are operated by National Jet for Qantaslink? I thought that in recent years they were all operated by Cobham. Does it have to to with operations in the east vs. west?
When did IR suspend service to NRT? I remember seeing their 74Ls there all the time.
Emirates and Norwegian are such unique machine-like entities that it's almost a stretch to refer to them as "airlines".Jump to post
Really, that was the final UA 74L service? I had long wondered on when they finally retired that type. Cheers.Jump to post
WA flew the B720 until '80 or '81, 8 to 10 years longer than UA and EA respectively.Jump to post
