Did you also know that SAS wanted Mc Donnell Douglas to build the 717?? or at that time it was named the MD-95. They even wanted to be launch customer and then suddenly they dropped out of it. And according to the latest Airliner World issue SAS is thinking about getting rid of the 736 because they ...Jump to post
I bet KUL would like to see SAS, but I doubt BKK-KUL is underserved these days.Jump to post
Incredible..I think it's time for Iberia to get some new 747s...Nice with a bunch of 747-400QXLR....! Well one can only dream about that!
It's nice though to see an old bird like this kept in mint condition, they wont be around for much longer.

This whole PIA and 777 order seems odd, no official announcement from the manufacturer nor the customer. Although Airlinerworld is citing that they have ordered the new aircraft with deliveries beginning in 2003. We need to have a stakeout at Boeing Field <img src="/discussions/graphics/biggrin...Jump to post
Cool! Ironically Finnair was launch customer for the MD-11 so now they'll have both first and last delivered pax version....!

CPH-BKK-SIN in april this year on a SAS 340 in business, I had a few cocktails some dinner and after that I woke up when it was time for breakfast before landing in Bangkok.So it went quite smooth...flying time was 10+ hrs and the SIN-BKK leg 2 hrs. There was a lot of food served on this flight... "...Jump to post
Controller: Lufthansa, traffic two o'clock reduce speed and maintain altitude,traffic is on same heading trying to gas it up a little. Lufthansa: Roger,wee have zee cute little Trabant in sight.

The airport is facing charges for the loss of lives and aircraft because of the inoperative ground radar they acquired ages ago from Norway but never installed for some reason.At first they tried to blame the Cessna pilot for the crash but they failed and the true reason came out from the fog..
Can't think of any.....Oh wait! the Boeing people were nice enough to put a cute sticker on the fuselage above the wing, it says 747-400 ER

SPRINGBOK, I can guarantee you a nice and enjoyable trip on the SAS 340s, no matter if you travel biz or economy, I've tried biz and it's most relaxing! Food,service and comfort is excellent! Enjoy your trip! Coincidentally I'm travelling to JNB from FRA the same date,although I'm flying with Luftha...Jump to post
Well there is an explanation, the A340-200 and 300 series has a poorer climb performance than for example the 500 and 600 series.This is due to the low thrust from the engines.So they need more time to gain altitude. But keep in mind that it doesn't make the A340 unsafe to travel on <img src="...Jump to post
Well, again very nice reading! This report makes me more and more convinced that I should have chosen KLM instead of Lufthansa on my upcoming trip to South Africa.Travelling with SAS from VAA-ARN-FRA and LH from FRA-JNB-CPT leaving on oct 24th. I'm travelling in Y and they probably wont even lift an...Jump to post
I travelled on RG between CPH-LHR in june on F class very nice,I just wanted to continue to GIG but unfortunately my ticket ended at LHR.. The food and service was good but not what you would expect on a 2hr flight in F..But I wish you a nice trip and godd*mn you if you don't write a thorough tripre...Jump to post
I remember reading in a Airways article about lavs when in the good old days they actually dumped waste from the airplane,they had cute discreet signs saying "do not use over populated areas" <img src="/discussions/graphics/biggthumpup.gif" ALT="Big thumbs up"> Imagine reading that on the lav ...Jump to post
Geez! They really put money into that truck! Do they really think it will lure more passengers...? Who knows
And once again I live on the wrong continent..

I can't even remember if Finnair ever flew to Chicago?? In the 80s maybe or earlier,they haven't got any other American routes than New York in their regular network.I believe when the time comes for the MD11 to retire from the Finnair fleet which won't happen in this decade,they will go Airbus almo...Jump to post
The 767 is a comfortable airplane and the SAS variants are from early nineties so they aren't too old and the cabin layout is good too so I believe they will hold on to them until they find the times good enough to convert the options for more 333s and 343s,btw how many options do they have?
Well again, I must say, another enjoyable trip report by Lufthansa747!

In february 1988 onboard Kar-Air Airbus A300B4 OH-LAA enroute from HEL to LPA, right over the Bay of Biscay we hit a stormcell or something and the pilot kept excusing himself because ATC didn't allow him to take the aircraft to any other flightlevel because we had traffic above us and under...I'll ...Jump to post
