The wings look off. I'm looking at my 747-8i model on my desk right now and there is definitely more curve and sweep to the wings. These look like a 744 with the winglets chopped off. It kinda looks like the current VC25 just with photoshopped GEnX's and a stretched hump. This is no way an official...Jump to post

There have been teething issues with other planes and engines before. The 787 is an example of an airplane being late and getting grounded. Boeing was able to convince the airlines that they could solve the problems and get the airplane flying at 99% reliability. Can Pratt and Whitney do the same? ...Jump to post
Seems pretty useless as a feature to me.
I say this as an Echo and Google Home owner who uses them constantly.
Stay on the topic and debate the validity of the report and possible root cause of the issue. Let me guess, the report was yet another EK plot to discredit the already embarrassing AI? #tinfoil Point is, this is yet another mess for an already beleaguered mess of an airline.

My favorite part of the whole BER saga is this Schwarz also appointed an emergency task force to propose solutions that would allow the airport to open on time. In March 2012 the group submitted its stopgap: Eight hundred low-paid workers armed with cell phones would take up positions throughout the...Jump to post
What is interesting is that AA doesn't even market JFK as a domestic connecting hub. For example west coast to DC or BOS routes me through PHL or CLT or occasionally LAX (nonstop). JFK is not intended to be a domestic-to-domestic hub. It's positioned for domestic-to-international connections and NY...Jump to post
HKG basically did that and it worked out great.
If building offshore, Long Beach wouldn't be where I'd put it though

Are they actually going to compete on price with these fares or just give you less for what you were paying before? Based on how basic economy rolled out domestically, I know which why I am betting. That is my only issue. This just adjusts the basic product to the old baseline price and everything ...Jump to post
BA 193 747-400 LHR-DFW has diverted to MEM That seems very odd. Why wouldn't BA en route to IAH divert to one of AA's hub airports (JFK/ORD/PHL/MIA/DFW) How on earth will BA/AA move these around from such a small operation. Maybe they had a medical emergency. LHR-IAH was cancelled. This is LHR-DFW....Jump to post

Interesting that the current troubles at P&W are causing difficulties for fleets that won't be delivered for a few years from now.

what about the operational reliability of the 767s to use on PHL-BUD/PRG? This has been a disaster for DFW-AMS this summer. I believe it's something they're actively working to address.

I guess they didn't tell EK PR about their visit. PR would never allow His Excellency in a picture with half finished A380 interior and floor protection film.

The question is, what does a person from Calgary want to see in Denver that they can't see in their own city and vice versa?

I sincerely hope the government steps in (which is 100% against what I stand for, so this means something) and stops AA from torturing paying consumers.

I agree with the problem and disagree with the solution. The solution is to heavily disincentivize the bad behavior - possibly by harsh penalties/temporary bans on travel and/or arrests.
The 99% of people who aren't drunken fools shouldn't be punished.
It's due to cabin crew strike action. BA seems to pick one flight and cancel it for successive days. The same has happened on LHR-ORD and LGW-JFK: https://londonairtravel.com/2017/08/01/ba-strike-cancellations-9-15-august/ They appear to be cancelling flights at the AA hubs as there are other fligh...Jump to post
I get that it's a highly competitive route with UA, but if AA wants to stay away from competing at IAD, why do LAX-IAD and compete with UA and VX?
