RE: Rolling Stones B747 + MD11 In GIG

Should be one helluva show! They sure know how to travel I guess. Here they get a 747, and an MD-11 and who was it, Bon Jovi(?), who was travelling in a 707 that ran off the runway a few weeks ago. Someone must be feeling a little jilted.

RE: A320 With Blended Winglets

I should have said, the addition of winglets, will allow the A320 to compete comparably in a broader range of applications, by increasing the ability to perform more efficiently on longer flights. The product is most certainly competitive. As we have seen recently the A320 can single handedly be cre...

RE: Delta Rumor

I think it would be great to see <acronym title="Delta Air Lines (USA)">DL</acronym> serving south Africa. I don't know why they wouldn't do the route non-stop. It seems to me if you have a fleet of 777's no matter how small, you would use them on a route like that. After all, if you don't use them ...

RE: US To Acquire ATA 757's?

What is the nature of ATA's financial position? I guess I didn't realize they were under bankruptcy protection. Are they being liquidated? With talk of all their 757's being sold, it sounds that way. I guess they still have the 73's, but are they going too?

RE: Here's What A 757 With A 737 Nose Looks Like..

I sure hope Y1 has the high position of the 757. I think it gives it much better presence, and not to mention it gives you greater opportunity for derivatives, as stretched versions would be less subject to tail strikes. I think the 737 is not a particularly attractive aircraft, and hope that Boeing...

I didn't see the commercial until just now, and I liked it very much. It was not one that goes down in history as amazing, but it certainly gets the point across. As many of the arm- chair CEOs here, with all their wealth of advertising experience complain about it, I think it made perfect sense. It...

RE: Avianca "to Order" 42 Widebodies (Airbus/Boeing?)

I would love to see them choose a mix of 787 and 737NG. I doubt they would have a need for anything larger than a 787-9, like the 777. I certainly don't see them needing and 744/8s. I bet we will see a Boeing widebody order, and airbus and Boeing will duke it out for the single aisles, hopefully to ...
