I'm sorta surprised that these 777LR couldn't find other operators.....I mean even Delta surprised me by not shaking the tree to see what conditions these Eithad birds were in,given how tight they've (DAL) been on widebodies Same here. I was hoping DL would pick them up - but they certainly have a ...Jump to post

Sitting in the back of an MD-80 during start is a pretty neat experience; the starter engages and the sound progresses from a low rumble and increases in pitch several octaves until it reaches a steady howl that sounds characteristically low bypass and (IMO) exceptionally more interesting then most...Jump to post

The most intense one that I’ve experienced is indeed the 777’s GE90. However I also quite like the GE equipped 787s. GE seems to be good on that :D While it’s not intense, it just has this deep sound which I like. It’s not so much on the RR equipped ones IMO. Deep sound as in this? Because it sure ...Jump to post
I thought it’d be interesting for me to make a list of all the 767-300ERs American Airlines has owned and see there status as of this year for anyone who was curious since I don’t see why not. If there are any mistakes, feel free to correct me. So far, American Airlines has owned at least 67 767-300...Jump to post

Greetings everyone! I would like to hear your opinion on the loudest, most intense engine start ups on any aircraft you flown. I only have flown on the Boeing 737-700 and -800 variants on Southwest in person and it gets pretty loud when those CFM56-7Bs come to life. But in my personal opinion, the 7...Jump to post
Seems like they pushed back the retirement date for N381AN (767-300ER). Per Flightradar 24, I see N381AN having 3 flights tomorrow on MIA-ORD, ORD-MIA, and MIA-SJU. As for N389AA, another 763ER retiring with 381, has a flight today to TUL from MIA at 5:30 PM and doesn't show anything afterwards.Jump to post
A few more things to expect for this year per KATL Wikipedia page (Yes I know...):
1. Southwest ending ATL-DTW and ATL-MSP services on June 7th, 2019.
2. Delta beginning ATL-BUR service on July 8th, 2019. Delta is also beginning ATL-ONT on April 22nd, 2019.
Hey guys, I have created another thread for the start of 2019 since it hasn't been noticed yet. I know the mods will notice this since it will be exposed to the Civil Aviation Forum.

I thought I might as well create this years thread since it hasn't been done yet. Here is what we are expecting so far this year: 1. WestJet adding YYC-ATL route. 2. Air France bringing over the A380-800. 3. Virgin Atlantic keeping the 747-400 on the MAN-ATL route for the remainder of the year. 4. V...Jump to post
Man, I have to ride a 757 soon! I heard so many great things about that aircraft and I know United and Delta will keep theirs for a bit longer as American gets ready to retire theirs. And lucky for me, Delta has a heck load of routes using the 757-200/300 from KATL.Jump to post
I will admit that looks pretty stunning. Can't wait to see it fly soon.Jump to post
Greetings everyone! It's seems like no one has posted this news so I'll get straight to the point, Virgin Atlantic has finally revealed the first look at the Ex.

A 767-300ER headed to CDG from SLC on 11/17/18 had a birdstrike and returned. Are you thinking of that one or was there a separate incident on 11/18/18 with a non-ER 763? https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL248/history/20181118/0009Z/KSLC/LFPG I think it might of been that one and misread someth...Jump to post
Had anyone experienced a repositioning flight before on the widebodies? Do they usually sell the tickets cheaper whenever they are repositioning the aircraft to another hub?Jump to post
Now that is awesome! That 737-300 has a lot of stories to tell, but that thing is 32 years old!!Jump to post
Pretty sure WestJet keeps the 736 most on operations in Canada. No, the B736s get used through out most of the routes including to the US. There’s a chance the B736 could be subbed in, for now it’s planned with B73W. You’ll see the 736 in at some point, depending upon loads/operational needs for a ...Jump to post

Makes sense given their strong partnership with Delta.
Good afternoon everyone! A few updates. 1. I noticed that Lufthansa brought their A346 around late September and continued through late October. As of today, they have resumed using the A333. 2. Virgin Atlantic has brought their A346 back for the remainder of this year and next year. Also the Virgin...Jump to post

Why a 739 vs a 738 on this route? If low yields were an issue here when they ran it with a 757, I'm not sure why they'd start out with more capacity. Is this a part of the "beat WN by upgauging/lowering CASM" strategy they've been using with Wall Street? Does DL use 738s on transcons anym...Jump to post

They should put one in a museum, not to get off topic, but is that the Mahan Air 747-300 in those photos? That is a Mahan Air 747-300. I believe it's EP-MNE.
