RE: Budweiser Makes Fun Of LCC Pilots In Commercial

Funny and terrible - both the commercial and the beer. BTW, can you believe that Delta serves <acronym title="Budapest - Ferihegy (BUD / LHBP), Hungary">BUD</acronym> & Coors Light in their Crown room? I am no big fan of the LCC but the ad is very inappropriate. I don't care if they want to bash oth...

RE: Big Comair Announcement

It may sound stupid but I'd love to fly on a prop aircraft. I have only flown commercial jets so far. I hope that the regional carriers go back to use them (if it makes sense economically of course)

Cheers,

Does anyone know if the A340 program is profitable? Airbus have not sold many planes especially from the A345/346 model. What is their break-even point?

Radar Problems In Boston

As news agencies have been reporting "The radars were showing "false targets" -- blips that air traffic controllers knew were not planes in flight" in the last couple of days.

What was the problem? Has it been fixed?

RE: Why Do Legacies Compete Against Each Other?

Antitrust laws do not allow companies to enter into such agreements. Also, I am sure that such agreements have been proven not to work. Since it would be illegal to fix the market in such a way, it would be impossible to enforce the agreement. This would create a lot of tension, as each player would...
