Not sure anyone here sees exactly what WN's plan is here opening up new markets during the downturn. Rule one is by seniority. Rule two is that you have to have 3 take-offs and landings ON TYPE every 90 days or in the sim. The big 3 are shuffling 777's pilots on down to narrow body and narrow body o...Jump to post
That's an interesting story. On what basis was Southwest supposedly trying to force Delta to sue Dallas? I imagine Delta declined to do so because (a) they had no case to make and (b) they would not only have to overcome the 5-party agreement; they also would have to overturn the federal law. DL wa...Jump to post
The 5-party agreement appears to permanently limit Love Field to 20 gates. " The 5 party agreement only applies to the 5 parties, not anyone else. That is why WN was trying to force DL, who chose not to participate, to sue the "City of Dallas" which would have opened up the agreement...Jump to post
As kalvado says, this isn't synthetic AoA, though. It is still detected by vanes that move. The difference seems to be that the computation is done in the probes themselves instead of centrally, then transmitted. Compared to the A A330, the AoA vanes in the A350 are integrated with theTAT and pitot...Jump to post

With the latest Apple product launch the glaring omission is a new iPhone. Any thoughts on what happened ? Behind the curve on 5G.

Not sure that anyone has called it "Pleasant Valley" .
It has cooled about 2000F from when it was formed, so it has cooled quite substantially since then.

4 Shot, two deaths.
Quite an example considering the size/population of chop/chaz. crime rate for murder has to be right up there what 500 people 4 shootings per week x 52 weeks makes 208 people per year. 41% per year on shootings and 20% murder rate.

One big problem with the 'reopening' of business and workplaces is the fear of liability of workers or customers claiming they got Covid-19 from them.
