If I'm understanding your post correctly, you think that a possible spilled drink would cause a 777 to mysteriously turn 150 degrees, knock out any and all communications and ATC transponder capabilities, and probably continue to fly for 7-8 hours before flaming out? If you ever got to see the amou...Jump to post

Speaking of Samsung and laptops... has anyone else used DeX? Samsung's cool little bit of software that displays your phone on a computer screen so you can use it but with a desktop interface rather than mobile.

Dunkirk was rather successful even though it was not heavily fictionalized. I would say though that the Dunkirk evacuation is a lot more prominent in people's knowledge of WW2, and dare I say... more interesting than a troop ship that didn't sink.

Honestly ArchGuy, I honestly feel that the story of the Gray Ghost is rather boring that Hollywood wouldn't be interested. Honestly, just look at what's being released today - superhero movies and remakes. Unless you can weave a fictionalized story into the real story, a la Titanic, it's not going ...Jump to post

For a flight of that length surely it wouldn't be at MTOW, would it?
I don't have the exact numbers, but IIRC the MLW isn't that far below the MTOW for the 738 (unless I am much mistaken), so I'd have thought they'd likely already be below MLW at the time of the incident.
Two, Three, Four engines. Logic or no logic. Vent or no vent. I trust a "widebody" over the pacific pond any day. More breathing room & more fuel = more time. Being a wide body doesn't necessarily mean you have more fuel time. Airlines don't just fill 'em to the top and send them on t...Jump to post
Wait, didn't Virgin Atlantic use to fly to Bolivia? I specifically remember seing this. In a James Bond movie I think. You're thinking of Quantum of Solace.

I've played many of the Grand Theft Auto games and performed near enough all the possible horrific actions in game.

Still only 10% though, probably easier just to add frequency with a slightly smaller aircraft with better runway performance. Or just limit payload/fuel.

Why though? The point was to try and keep a common type rating with the existing 737. So a 757MAX would be rather pointless, may as well do a clean sheet.

Well, she seems lovely. If that's how she treats him in public, I dread to think about what the poor fella has to endure at home.
Good on the FA to try and remove him from his seat for his own safety.
I wonder if it extends to flight crew? Imagine the feeling of walking to your gate at LAX, passing all the VS, BA, LH crews in their smart uniforms while wearing your Goofy Ears.Jump to post

Same idea as going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State Building, good view of an amazing city.

If I recall correctly, Manston was a designated abort field for the space shuttle, so the runway certainly is large enough for near enough anything.
