Nah, it's Sharklet because that's way more awesomer than winglet! ;)


Can't argue with that!

Re: Kuwait Airways B777-300ER

Hello MoKa777 KU has been syaing in local media that it will add extra NewYork flights reopen seasonal Malaga and Fly to Madrid add Manchester plus Tokyo Hi Monty1988! That is great! Nice to see some movement with an airline that has been fairly stagnant and dormant for most of the last decade or t...

Re: What is the difference between the A350 and the A350ULR

OEW and Finnair's A350-900s are at 144,000kg. Sounds like absolute bullocks, typically the number I presented have been totally ignored in favor of the pro Boeing agenda. Of course it sounds like absolute bullocks to you, zeke , since it doesn't show Boeing in a negative light. :roll: I have no rea...

Re: Clark: The World Needs More A380's

Also, regarding leeham, they appear (from reading many many many articles of their's) to be relatively partial to Airbus as opposed to Boeing. So I do not believe that they would unfairly favour the 77W in a comparison. (I don't hold anything against leeham for their views but from a completely obje...

Re: Clark: The World Needs More A380's

The A380 is a great, efficient aircraft probably a decade or two too early in my mind. It was developed on the assumption that airlines would upgauge equipment to get around airport congestion. However, airlines found a different way to adapt to that problem. They decided that increasing network sco...

Re: Kuwait Airways B777-300ER

I'm a little bit disappointed. Although the new livery is a clear improvement, I'm not that sure about the tail design. For my taste, the bird logo got a bit too big so that you hardly recognize it at all which is a pity in my opinion. The front half, including the engines look very good and I'm ha...

Re: Kuwait Airways B777-300ER

Will it be possible for KU to operate their 77W on a KWI-SYD-KWI route with any meaningful payload, considering that it is about +-500nm further than DXB-SYD-DXB? I am not saying that there are plans for such or that they should ever even attempt it. However, if the motivation were there, would it b...

Re: QR Doha-Munchen downgauged?

I believe that the A359 is still more efficient per seat than the A330ceo/neo even on routes of this length.

Where the A330 wins is on acquisition cost, though...

Re: QR Doha-Munchen downgauged?

I believe it is more of a downgrade in terms of hard product than a downgauge in capacity since the A333 and A359 in QR's fleet have similar capacities. Although, booking specifically to experience a new aircraft type but instead getting an older known type is very disappointing... I hope for your s...

Re: What is the difference between the A350 and the A350ULR

Is it reasonable to assume that a similarly configured 789 will have a lower OEW given its smaller size relative to the A359?

Re: Kuwait Airways B777-300ER

Had a look at the seat map. Looks to be a sensible layout. I am liking what I see with the developments at KU.

Re: What is the difference between the A350 and the A350ULR

Except the A359 OEW is not 144t, and the 789 is not 129t. Start with crap numbers you get crap results. Highly amusing a person would value their back of a fag packet, finger into the wind data over the certified data onboard the aircraft. Would it be possible for you to do the same calculations th...
