Re: BA returns to 10-abreast 777 seating, increases A320 seating

Interestingly (to me anyway) the phrase "customer service" does not feature a single time in this presentation. Guess that sums up BA and IAG for me now. i would agree, but you have to remember the planned readership of the deck, it's not supposed to be us Av Geeks and consumers who care ...

Re: Russia-China Proposed 250-280 Seat Aircraft

2021-2022 first flight with western engines, and hopefully Russia can provide engine for the plane in 2030. So basically the plane should be fully ready by 2030. That's what, a development time of 15 years? So they're going to swap the engine after the plane is ready, not sure what to think about t...

The plane is only half-filled, right? The evacuation time would have been even longer if there're more people on it

Re: The perfect 737-200 replacement: the A318

How about something like BAe 146/An-148? Both seems to have demomnstrated the ability to land on unpaved runway according to photos online, and are at least newer than 732..

Or just put passenger seats onto something like A400M?

Re: U.S. Pre-clearance facilites planned in Saudi Arabia

If they want to test that on places with fewer travel first they can probably do that on Guam first. I heard that flight between GUM and rest of America are now counted as International.
If risk is a factor then probably Pakistan.

Busan seems like a good city to start concept-proof this idea. It is an important port with multimillion population, but there are currently no direct flight from the city to North America.

Quoting MaxxFlyer (Reply 7):Honolulu had it's heyday as a TPAC connecting point. The whole idea of the new-gen airliners since the 744 is to get from point A to B nonstop. One reason why there so little international presence there other than what's going to Japan. Exactly. Why can't the exact same...

Re: Narrowbody flying transpacific?

3) will fly anything if the price/schedule is right. Ultimately this is the deciding factor. But DC8's (and 707's) were not and are not cheap to operate, certainly when compared to more modern aircraft like the 767. So how is an airline supposed to offer better pricing while operating aircraft that...

Narrowbody flying transpacific?

According to my understanding, the deployment of B757 into transatlantic market have opened up many new city pairs. And there were also some direct services provided by DC8/B707 between Asia and America [with conditional fuel stop] before the launch of 747/DC10/L1011, which most of those routes have...
