Well sure the pictures speak for themselves, and once IND gets that runway in place I don't see them having much more land than MEM currently has for FX expansion. Again, all the space between Democrat Rd. and the interstate, and then some. No one is suggesting IND can not significantly grow their ...Jump to post

How do we confirm it either way? Maybe HPRamper might have insight. What we know is that it's not far out of a heavy check and it ferried yesterday on a FX 9XXX flight number (those are usually non rev ferry flights.
The Exit and Emergency exits are where they are to satisfy the FAA and EASA. Because airlines want to put more seats on airplanes? Is of no consequence when applied to safety and Emergency Egress. But it’s certainly relevant for the relocation/redistribution of exits on the latest generation of the...Jump to post

How so? B6 is going to LHR, not LGW. How do we know that? Has there been an announcement - perhaps of purchase of LHR slots you'd like to point to? Well when B6's CEO says things like "LHR or nothing" it makes it pretty clear doesn't it? https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/airport-...Jump to post
I've heard the same rumors about him. He was fired from Mesa because he was having some sort of psychological/emotional problems. I hadn't heard the bit about him getting fired from Atlas so I'm not going to comment on it. I've been following this thread from the start, and find it quite interestin...Jump to post
[twoid][/twoid] The moment the picture got published of the first officer all the rumors started on every aviation related site. His mistakes led to the crash. He sued his employer. He had pilots at his old airline that hated him. You people spreading this racism should be ashamed of yourselves. It ...Jump to post
Those are airports, not markets. Take a look at the first two for example. TTN & LBE... you’re looking at philly and Pittsburgh, which have no shortage of competition at their primary airports.
Or further down the list with HOU and MDW, or LGB, and the list goes on
We don’t know that either. I don’t know of any autopilot mode that would get you that nose low. You would need all of your drag devices out and then some in a speed-on-pitch scenario and then would likely achieve only ~20ish degrees nose low at bestJump to post
NTSB releases initial report https://airwaysmag.com/airlines/ntsb-release-initial-report-on-atlas-air-crash/ It appears as though this is a reshash of the NTSB March 12 Update that is already being discussed, intermingled with some opinion / interpretation. Some pretty poor interpretation at that!Jump to post
I am very sad to say that it appears that the NTSB is looking at pilot error as a significant factor in this becoming a fatal accident. And what is now going to happen is that the anti-Amazon political stooges are going to line up with their union friends, and there will be much high-minded hand-wr...Jump to post
Praying they ditch eurowhite for blue and a return of the tulip with the globe pattern inside it. Realistically, they’re probably just putting the swoopy 787 livery on everything. Not my work, but: https://i.imgur.com/umRVL4Z.png The 80's called, they want that back. That hurt to look at.Jump to post
Has an official categorization of “incident” vs. “accident” been made yet?Jump to post
If you look back at USAir....they are where JetBlue is now. The name "USAir" was too "regional" sounding. So to become more of a dominant "world Class airline", they rebranded to US Airways. I beleive JetBlue needs to tweek their brand/imge just a bit to market themsel...Jump to post
Really surprising that no one here has mentioned that the NTSB statement today basically rules out foul play/suicide... No one has mentioned it because it has not been ruled out. Your starting to push a few buttons my friend, too bad if you can´t read, but even on an enthusiasts site it is about ti...Jump to post

It’s Interestinf fedex has gone that route but still stops a whole lot of their 777s in anc for fuel.
While I don’t expect FX to order the 74, it was heavily rumored to be looked at again last year. Logic being to keep the 74s busy flying charters till peak and the supplement the trunk Airlift durIng December.

Which precisely goes to my point about scope clauses hurting the industry and the flying public by causing airlines to make choices they otherwise wouldn't, where the only group that benefits is the mainline pilots (and to a point made earlier, the follow-on effect pilot scope has on mainline cabin...Jump to post
The scope closes don't make a lot of sense, so it's not a surprise to see nonsense solutions like this popping up. You must not work in this business if you don’t understand the value of scope. The only people who get any value from scope clauses are mainline pilots. No one else "in this busin...Jump to post
Does the airport authority receiving the grant necessarily mean they have a tenant for the hangar? This sounds like they’re maybe trying to attract MRO business to the airport. Any chance they’ll juet lease it to FedEx?Jump to post
The ratio of hull losses to aircraft produced is telling in its own right. Some aircraft require more skill and discipline than others, and the -11 demands respect.Jump to post
