Smoking shouldn't be allowed on any planes. I think it gives us non-smokers a sence of no escape, we are trapped in a metal tube, now it is filling with smoke from a passenger. We cannot open a window....having a smoking section in a plane is like having a peeing section in a pool. <img src="/...Jump to post
Ok people, what is the main goal and motive of an airline.....TO FLY PASSENGERS TO A DESTINATION! People nowadays are focusing on whether or not their food is from a fancy seafood and steakhouse in Paris, or a simple meal to get you through the flight. The only thing airlines should have to advertis...Jump to post
Personally, I think that it is great to see airlines back into service that went under a few years ago. It's not bad they are using the same name, there are all new employees. I wish both National and Pan Am luck in the future, 'tis great to see those birds up and flying once again! <img src="...Jump to post
As a NWA employee, I didnt' appreciate the remark about us being matched with KLM. Our goal at NW is the same, if not higher than the service goals of KLM, and we try hard to make people like you happy on all of our flights. If you don't like NW, pick another carrier and let us do our job. ThanksJump to post
I work for NWA on the ramp at SEA...most of our flights via the -10 are to and from MSP, HNL, and DTW. I don't think NW plans on retiring our fleet of -10's, they are efficient, and have a long range, they possibly will be replaced way later in the future, but I dont see it in the near future. On th...Jump to post
I don't have a scanner, so I recently took a roll of pictures, had them developed at Costco, and ordered a picture disk along with my prints, so all my pix were on the disk. I then sent some pictures from that to airliners.net and they say the picture quality wasn't good enough! They looked great on...Jump to post
Are there any programs to better this flight simulator? What I'm looking for are better scenery, and a program where you can add commercial airliners to the simulator. I have already added the B747 one, but looking for one with DC-10's, MD-80's, and any others. Thanks!Jump to post
I was wondering if there are any great places to photograph airliners around the Bay Area. So far I have found the spotting point at SFO off of Milbrae, and at SJC, along side the runway on Airport Rd. Haven't found any places at OAK. Anybody have any other suggestions? Thanks!Jump to post
No you cannot get hired at an airline unless you are minimum 18 years old. I have worked for SW, AS, and NW currently, and that is what I have heard. What position do you want to apply for? I know ramp, and customer service for sure you have to be at least 18. Sorry bud! Give it another few years! T...Jump to post
I have noticed this during take off evertime I fly on any type of jet. You're sitting there, the brakes are on, the captian releases the breaks and the engines start to rev up. Instead of a continuous "revving up", it feels like he puts them to 50% for like 6 seconds, then applies full throttle. Why...Jump to post
Why don't we ever see NW 727's on the West Coast like in SFO, SEA, PDX, SJC, etc?
Why did UA re-paint it's fast, yet America West still flies mostly old colored aircraft? Are there any old color UA's still flying?
Will SWA ever get any other aircraft than the 737?
What happened to Kiwi?
Now dont' quote me on this, but I believe the switch over from Northwest Orient to Northwest was just like the transition from USAir to USairways. Just somthing different. I am an employee of NW and I have never been asked this! Also, it had to do with the earlier service NW had, lots of flights acc...Jump to post
I will be flying to SEA from SJC via American Airlines. I have been seeing a lot of ex Reno Air planes flying around, pure white. I have also seen some new AA's flying that are white and not metalic. Are all of Reno's planes going to remain white with the AA logo? Or are they going to convert them b...Jump to post
