Yeah i should have known someone would have blamed the striking pilots here. Not surprised. Not only here, everyone blames the striking pilots. Press, staff at KL, AF/KL management, and even non-pilot unions at AF. https://twitter.com/CFDT/status/990507524343369728?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Thus you shou...Jump to post
The concept that Miami is the gateway to Latin America is not much an argument for a Far East carrier. The major cities of Latin America can be reached 1-stop today via a host of means - be it via other North American cities, or the other way around via the Middle East for example.. ...At MIA you h...Jump to post
Sorry, Spanish only: https://maduradas.com/sepalo-gobierno-vendera-gasolina-a-aerolineas-en-petros/ In another reckless attempt to enrich themselves, the Maduro regime today decreed that all international airlines have to pay for jet fuel in Venezuela in Petros, the fake virtual currency created by...Jump to post
Before I try and find the statistics does anyone know the loads for AA's MIA-CCS route? Seems all too troublesome for AA to continue serving this route. IF the loads were especially good then I might could understand it but to delve into a fake currency to boot just for one route into a country on ...Jump to post
Don’t do it! I really hope those over the pond really don’t give in to such a P2F scheme. It is schemes like this and those that flock to them that have brought down salaries as well as terms and conditions of pilots in Europe. I urge all pilots in North-America to save their industry and condition...Jump to post
Really Air France is flying today? Lucky! https://www.thelocal.fr/20180423/air-france-cancels-25-percent-of-flights-on-monday-due-to-strike-action Seriously this flight might have to do with the strike and planes rotating differently the past days or is this a standard from now on?

Good for the flight attendants, I guess. Not sure if they are really expecting some massive pay raise now but if they are, no doubt they will be disappointed. The one group that loses in all of this however, are the passengers. Hey jumbo, why do you say the passengers will lose in this? Most likely...Jump to post

B6's fate was sealed once they lost out to AS regarding VX. B6 is cornered, and they know it. They're about to get "AirTran'd"; by who, is anyone's guess, although I have my suspicions. Hint: it's an airline without a NYC hub.
Considering they dont know anything about aviation, yep.Jump to post
oh okay , i get it now. Im just not sure whether there's enough demand for MCO for spirit to get a second (or third in total) plane there.Jump to post
A321NLR will allow NK to go to deeper South America from FLL, which really could be a game changer in south Florida as far air fares from MIA to Argentina, Chile, Brazil, etc. Norwegian if they ever connect FLL with Argentina also will have a similar impact. The a321LR wouldn’t be as effective for ...Jump to post
Bear in mind the source of this news is Russian controlled . The largest producer of titanium is China at more than double and Japan running in 2nd . While having Russia embargoed would push prices higher. I’m sure Boeing could continue to produce aircraft. I dont think i need to remind you the tar...Jump to post
Folks, stranger things have happened. While I believe the probability of staying with airbus is quite high, I’d love for them to pick up 737’s on their next order. The 737-10MAX could make a lot of sense for them. Why...Just why? That would be like choosing a 65 year old woman with tons of plastic ...Jump to post
This Right. It is pretty unwise for a ULCC to deviate from fleet commonality. I would be shocked if their next order is for anything but the A321neoLR. The A321NLR will unlock so much South American potential for Spirit. I don't see them going into Europe, but flights like DTW-ANC, ORD-BOG, MCO-LIM...Jump to post
I do not get you people, still defending United in this case. United had no right to remove the passenger.

Maduro and the revolution in general actually want as much of the higher/middle class out of Venezuela as possible. Then they can do as they wish, not that anything is stopping them lately - never seen such a pathetic opposition as the one in Venezuela. They have been outsmarted at every turn by th...Jump to post
Very interesting blog entry. These are innovative times for AA in Latin America, the region which arguably gives them the best margins across their network. AA does need some product adjustments to regain their true leadership in the market (25 year old 767 cabins are not competitive with anything)...Jump to post

Can't really see much from either angle. Sure it's using a large amount of runway; but from this vantage it's tough to tell how much is left, as it sinks below the visible horizon in both cases. MDE is a 7027ft elevation airport (no idea if it classifies as Hot and high; i know BOG does) with 11.48...Jump to post
Apparently this happened on 22nd January and somehow wasnt in the important news on the country.
Airport is SKMD (Rionegro).
I suppose this was another overweight T/O from cargo planes. This one was rented for Avianca Cargo.

Looks like UA is going to be suspending shipping animals in the cargo hold until at least May 1st while they review the program. Good for United. But they must have known they had a problem before these incidents hit the media. Not a very proactive approach to this problem. Why does it take the med...Jump to post
There is no airline on the planet that actually orders planes with such a mentality. " Oh, I switched to Boeing, so I guess I have to stay with them now.... " No, just no. That's how AvGeeks think.

Ordering B77Ws, an entirely new type for Swiss, as an interim solution for switching back to Airbus only a couple of years later would be nonsense. Or other way round, if they would plan with the A350, it would have been nonsense to order the B77W. There is no airline on the planet that actually or...Jump to post

The RJ85 doesn't have fuel dumping capabilities. I see, but in other aircraft that does have the capabilities, is it displayed? The FDR does not display anything, it records data.
