Re: Baltia to lease 767-300ER

What I have never understood: the company has had a DOT certificate on-and-off for over 20 years. Couldn't it wet-lease an airplane to determine if such service was viable? I think it would have saved a bunch of investor money.

Re: The E170/E175 and Equipment Filing with ATC

Very good explanation, thank you. I always assumed it must be something like this. But I'm wondering, why don't these flight tracking apps just pull the aircraft type from the data they receive live?

Re: The E170/E175 and Equipment Filing with ATC

The online flight tracking sites get their advance flight information from ETMS. The ETMS gets its advance flight information from OAG. Remember that OAG uses IATA coding which does not necessarily match up with ICAO coding (used in flight plans). As an example, ERJ could be EMB-135, -140, or -145. ...

Re: Has Hawaiian Air started retiring their 717's?

Hawaiian's oldest, N475HA might have 60000 cycles. The 717 is a DC-9, so the 110000 cycle limit applies. Plenty of years left.

Delta has 91 717s.
