Nah, it's Sharklet because that's way more awesomer than winglet!
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
Thanks for that.Jump to post
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...Jump to post
Is it reasonable to assume that a similarly configured 789 will have a lower OEW given its smaller size relative to the A359?Jump to post
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...Jump to post
