These 332 are ex Jetstar and were repurposed to transcon duties. Hence no crew rest. Some are. Some were ordered by Qantas, went to Jetstar then back. Think some never went to Jetstar. But the 333s which were only ever Qantas also don't have a crew rest, just a curtain around a few pairs (not quads...Jump to post
They used to use the 332 transpacific after the 743 was retired, I guess they have been reconfigured a number of times sinceJump to post

Nothing I can see about cargo doors or reinforcements for elevator mentioned by someone else. Maybe they can do a “beam me up Scotty”.

It’s not complicated, federal overrules local. The mask mandate cannot (and will not) be enforced at PHL.

Supposedly owned by the Bank of Utah. Not sure if that is true. To be N/FAA registered it must be registered by a US citizen, that can either be a natural person or US company.

I'm going to disagree on this being a good time to drop the mask mandate. A group of us after a successful negotiation went out to a pub a week ago (exactly as I type this). No mask wearing and the vendor bought free drinks for their employees, so they outnumbered we the buyers (who doesn't want fr...Jump to post
Ah, but the flight crew was enforcing a mandate which was found to unlawful.

And Zeke, sorry, but nobody flies to 1/2 degree of pitch accuracy. Simply because most aircraft don’t show a resolution on the horizon useful for flying it with 1/2 degree accuracy. Any A320/A330 will have demonstrated that skill when engine out, the target pitch attitude is 12.5 deg, the PFD pitch...Jump to post
The crew did nothing wrong, this was unknown hence the reason for the notice to all operators.

You have no business saying crew should ignore FDs, with these large airc...Jump to post
This is not an issue with an airlines SOP nor an issue with the pilots, hence the reason this was sent out to all 787/777 operators.

I don’t see how personal reference is relevant when the recent EK incident was not in LVO conditions. Hence my comment about normal takeoff sequences.

Thanks for proving the point. ETOPS has everything to do with twins. Nope, the T in ETOPS does not mean twins, it used to some time ago, the rules were changed.

Be surprised. The Boeing Dual Eng Fail/Stall checklists do not give any kind of gliding guidance to the crew. The checklist assumes you get at least one engine started and have a nice day.

Modern jetliners like the 777 have at least a 20:1 glide ratio. The 787 glide ratio is supposedly so high it’s proprietary information. I don’t know the exact number.

Boeing suffered major consequences due to the culture and bad decisions.
