Re: LY to launch DUB and DUS

Wow, just wow.
LY is expanding very rapidly in recent years, and it seems that maybe, also the Q2 reaults (which were positive) might have helped.
I'm almost curtain LY flew to DUS at some point...

Re: Captain Al Haynes has Flown West (UA232)

As said by others, I belive that his name should be written upon a plane, or atleast something he said to continue his legacy.
RIP Al...When I saw him earlier in my life in "seconds from disaster" I was shocked by how cool and humane he was despite the mess that happened.

Re: Garuda Indonesia signs LOI for 4 A330-800's

Isn't that supposed to be a negotiation tactic? I thought they had a similar deal with Boeing about some new Dreamliners.

If not, it can be a minor yet helpful boost for the A330neo program, notably the A338.

Re: Boeing 777X Testing Thread - 2019

Hope they'll manage to reslove the problem with engine by minimum structual modifications and more with materials.
If were talking about thermodynamics, I think that the problem is in the materials themselves.

If any engineer sees this comment, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Too many related incidents over the course of history...It's not just rough air, it's also the possibily of a sudden rational pitch down (the near mid air collision over Japan in 2001, for example,), or an irrational one (QF72 faulty AOA sensor that led the autopilot to pitch down, back in 2008).

Re: China Eastern sets up Air 123 to exclusively fly home-grown Chinese jets including ARJ21, C919

Either way, it seems that safety isn't really an issue in the Chiness Aviation industry, I think that those C919s and ARJs will do just fine. Apparently they put technological sovereignty issues in front of safety. After ZTE and Huawei, if any Chinese CEO doesn't have a plan for in case they get pu...

According to the airline in flight magazine, no.
Their 753s are limited to 5,400km of max range.
The A321LRs are operating up to 6,100km in Arkia.

It's very fortunate that there was no fire...Also that the corn field actualy might have helped.
Isn't this kind of failures is extremely rare?
The weather looks just fine, is there any confirmation about a possible bird strike or that something went to sh-- inside the engines?

Re: What could EK do with 778/A359/789 in the fleet?

A339 can reach all Asia, all Africa, all Europe, and Western Australia. So it can be used on new routes. It can defenitly serve them for every destination th...
