RE: Will We Ever See Another W/B TriJet?

Thanks Boeing nut for that link. The only plane missing from that set is a UA bird in the new C/S. All of those C/S's would look great on an updated, stretched L-1011 with winglets and GE90's!!!

RE: Will We Ever See Another W/B TriJet?

One thing I do know for a fact is that we will never see a N/B TriJet (i.e. 727 series). There is no point with the engines that they have now that power the single isle aircraft. They are overpowered as it is!

Will We Ever See Another W/B TriJet?

I was flipping through some old pictures of <acronym title="European Regions Airlines (Spain)">EA</acronym> L-1011's and I wondered to myself if any aircraft manufacturer with ever make another W/B TriJet? I would have to say no based on the ETOPS success of the 777, but on a ultra-long range flight...

RE: The Next Big Order For UAL

OUCH!!! That hurts! It would be really weird to fly into <acronym title="Chicago - O'Hare International (ORD / KORD), USA - Illinois">ORD</acronym> and see something other than <acronym title="United Airlines (USA)">UA</acronym> birds at T1! I agree with UA2162, they'll eventually order the 7E7 if t...

RE: "Extreme Runways"

BUR has to be the most exciting that I have experienced, especially in a <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> A320 on a very hot Los Angeles summer day. Plane was only half full with minimal fuel to <acronym title="Phoenix - Sky Harbor International (PHX / KPHX), USA - Arizona">...

RE: HP's Fleet

You would have to imagine the <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> would have a bunch of routes that a smaller wide body A/C fleet (i.e. 762/763) would not only help consolidate multi-departure frequencies (<acronym title="Phoenix - Sky Harbor International (PHX / KPHX), USA - A...

RE: 737NG Winglets

Dan,

So are the winglets more or less an option for those airlines looking for an A/C comparable to the 757?

737NG Winglets

Hi All, I hope you all don't find this to be a dumb question, but I have had it for quite a while. The winglets that are an option on all 737NG A/C are supposed to reduce drag, save fuel, and increase range. My question is why aren't they standard or why aren't they ordered by all the airlines? I im...
