RE: US Airline Quality Rating 2000 Released, UA Worst!

If this 'isn't fair'(or correct, or however you want to put it) because of some airlines international services, then shouldn't the'Big Boys' think about improving their domestic services? There are probably more people who travel domestic than overseas, and that is reflected in the survey. Domestic...

RE: BA 'Union Flag' Tailfins - Best Of A Bad Job?

Sure the tails(well,most of them) look great, and it is projecting a certain image for British Airways, but I'd have to agree that the all white fuselage with blue from the wing down looks very 'empty' on the larger aircraft. Perhaps on the 747-400 winglets they should repeat the tail pattern(at lea...

RE: Concorde Charters

The Concorde has been coming here to Toronto on charters for quite a few years now, from early spring to early fall. You can basically rely on the info given, but Aviation World(I'm sure you've heard of it, right?) always has the dates posted on their board inside the doors. A couple of years ago, t...

98% Likely Asiana

Well, it's not Korean Air as they don't fly 767s. It's not KLM - the door configuration doesn't match. The photo looks retouched, making the top portion blue instead of the normal 'Asiana Buff. The rest of the markings match..The registration number is in Asiana's sequence...and yes, it (Asiana) is ...

Twin Safety

Engines these days are not your grandfather's, or even your father's! Engine reliability has increased vast amounts since the 'early days'. Technology in the whole has advanced so much. Thirty years ago this computer I'm using would be the size of half my house. These days, four engines just mean hi...

RE: AA Stands For Awesome Airline

Well, maybe since you have an AADVANTAGE account, they might care about your business and they don't want to lose that. Me, on the other hand, was not too impressed with AA last time I flew them(May 99), for one simple thing: When asked what I'd like to drink, I had to wait for 2 other people to ask...

RE: Iran Air A300 Shot Down

This did not happen in 1992. It was in July 1988. The eight year war between Iran and Iraq was winding down at this time, and U.S. ships were patroling the Gulf, protecting oil tankers of neighbouring countries. Of course relations between Iran and the U.S. were still sour, with the revolution and t...

RE: Aircraft Opinions

Ultimately, I'd have to agree on what I find alot of people think: The 757-200 is about the most beautiful a/c out there. Of course it's sibling, the -300, does not share it's beauty. The stretch just takes away from the pleasant shape of the 757. Some aircraft become more attractive with a stretch,...

RE: Hasagawa Questions

Hasegawa also packages an Air France 777(LT29), so you didn't have to use the 747 decals, and comes with the appropriate GE engines, not the PW as used for JAL. Also, they package Lauda Air 777(LT30) also with GE, Singapore Airlines(LT123) - in 50th Anniversary markings(with RR engines), Thai Airway...

Who Still Has SP

Mostly African - South African Airways, Alliance Air, Air Namibia
I believe Air China still flys them, also Mandarin Airlines, perhaps QANTAS?
Several Arabian Governments fly them too, including Saudi 'disguised' in airline livery.

RE: How Can I Get A New Fuselage To Revell A330?

Well, you can always try writing to the manufacturer, and find out that way; if they respond at all. I've encountered numerous 'problems' through the years building models, and some manufacturers have better response to the public than others. How much of the fuselage is damaged? Could you salvage i...
