I think theyll do DTW-NGO and GRU with the 339, because at least it can route something like ATL-GRU-DTW-NGO-DTW-GRU-ATL. Agreed. Actually I understand DL has now upgauged it's JFK-GRU service from 763 to A333 having now 2 daily A333 services in/out GRU so I also think it's just a matter of time be...Jump to post
I might be repeating rubbish gossip, but a captain told me that they were coming without bunks If that is true they won't go to South America or California and probably not Texas either. The B787-10 will NOT have range for South America. It will be US East Coast/Midwest and some African,Middle East...Jump to post

Agreed. The sanctimonious and holier than thou tone wears thin as well.

from what location at LAX was the photo of the Alitalia 777 taken?
That is from a helicopter:

However the spotters place next to the Polderbaan at the end of the IJweg is nice. It's the only spotters place without a fence between the spotters place and the runway.

I am presuming this is all on LH. LH is usually very good about helping people with connections. Sometimes they will call your name when the door opens (listen for it) and have a special car or van waiting for you if there is a very tight connection Not always.

My new favorite curse is: "May you have to sit in seat 59E on QF9." It confuses the non-av people. ROTFL I can only imagine such a flight, restricted recline, in front of a galley. Lightsaber Agreed.

Check out the middle DC-9 in this shot of some of Texas International's fleet (I can't quite make out the reg - maybe N1308T?). The stripes in the livery continue across the cockpit window frames where the other 2 just have silver ones like we typically see. Sorry bud... couldn't see it... HELP :ill:Jump to post

Just got airborne and made a right turn. A bit late departure but probably will make up along the way, if needed. I heard winds are great and will reduce today's flight by almost 30min. Maybe the plan is not to arrive too early and spoil the party. Exciting times. Well, we gonna have to wait for mo...Jump to post

Great news. I think Copa needed these upgrades long ago and its customers deserved them too. Copa uses its 737s on very long routes, nothing new here.

I'm sorry but slot related or not who in sane mind would fly to that bus station which is MEX?
Did any of you fly to/from MEX airport in recent times?
If EK had a choice and was looking for reasons not to fly somewhere, a single visit to that place would answer it.

Perhaps Belgian folks might have tried it on a A330.

Where's that option in this website where you could point your mouse cursor over a word and a small description of it pops up?
Had to google to see where BEG is.
Hmm... a brand new version of the tuna can with LR or ULR?
They did, it's called 787.
