Just by curiosity… Are Canadian airports part of the survey?Jump to post

And still without engines.....
Just heard and saw the 744 over my dwelling, again. Too dark to take a meaningful picture. I was born just a few days before the 747 came out of factory. I'll be 50 in a few days. Bit of a nostalgic moment. When I was a kid, those things were novelty; when I was a teenager, they were everywhere, whe...Jump to post

I’d shorten it to “The Donger”.
Um... how are you shortening it, when what you said has both more letters and more syllables??
Well, since Airbus paid $1 for control of the CSeries, I guess another dollar fits the bill for the CRJ…Jump to post
Yesterday at 23:04 there was that roar over my home and it was a 747. FR24 told me it was a -428, company, departure and destination not displayed but it was clearly from YUL. I saw another one a few weeks ago, same discretion about everything, it went over the ocean. Anyone has an idea about what i...Jump to post

Glad I did not book on them.Jump to post
The other aspect I find interesting is that idea of BOS/JFK being used as "middle of the Atlantic focus cities"…
Hub and spokes seemed dead with the A380, but it may as well thrive with the A320 and A220…
(Iceland seems more middle of the Atlantic, but then…)
About the weight of the ULR… In this article referenced in the A350 thread: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/a350-900ulr-will-have-inactive-forward-freight-hold-449495/ it is mentioned that the forward cargo hold is deactivated in the ULR.

So, in total, BBD could be paying AIB maybe more than 1 Bn US$ (by funding cash shortfalls "up to" 225M$ in second half 2018, up to 350M$ in 2019 and up to 350M$ again in 2020 and 2021 aggregated) to take over the CSeries, (shortfalls in excess of that to be shared among shareholders, mean...Jump to post
The A320 was conceived as a (more efficient) replacement for the 727, of which AF had a sizable fleet at the time. The 737 was not quite there yet in term of performances (and the 757 was just more plane). Maybe, just maybe, that could have played a role in AF's order…Jump to post
I feel some kind of justice that this order falls into BBD's basket, before the title transfer to AIB.Jump to post
Glad to know that all the efforts made by Embraer and resulting from the operation of more than 1,400 E-Jets worldwide, which ensured an EIS without any major embarrassment to its first operator, Wideroe, and should stay with its new customers to this magnificent aircraft. With two E190-E2s in oper...Jump to post
Nobody was interested in my suggestion. Hmmm.... I still reckon the A319 could be a cheap possibility. With the single outflow design of the V2500 engine it could be a fairly low acquisition cost airframe and as it sits higher than a 737, vortex destroyer kits could be fitted to the nose of the cow...Jump to post
Hoping that an engineer happens to read this thread and this question…
What would be the largest intake diameter for which a practical vortex dissipator could be conceived? And then, in existing engines, which ones would fit the bill?
Fascinating read. Many thanks for the head up!Jump to post
Honestly, if there is still no transit zone, meaning that every transiting passenger has to go through mainland China immigration (even with the visa waiver plan for stays shorter that 144 hours), I will not set foot there another time. The comedy of spending so much time in front of deserted immigr...Jump to post
What they really need to sell is the CSeries. Allow me to correct: "what they really needed to sell…" This ship has sailed, and Airbus will now sell A200s. I still feel a little bit bitter about how BBD handled the whole matter (or, more honestly, what I perceive thereof). But I don't wan...Jump to post

Every now and then, there is an answer to a post that appears before the said post in a thread. Case in point:
In this thread, reply #25 is ap305 answering to Polot's reply #26.
