Hello all Greetings from a very warm UK! I am booked to travel on this flight, operated by a A340-300 this November. I was surprised to find out the flight time is scheduled (according to the booking) 15 hours and 15 minutes. This is significantly more than the A350 operated by CX on the same day. ...Jump to post
Curious to plumb the knowledge of those who know - how does air temperature /pressure affect take off distances? What prompts me to ask the question is the record high temperatures affecting Europe. Here in England temperatures over 40C (104F) have been seen for the first time today. I am sure ther...Jump to post

Boeing has over 600 MAX10s on order (plus 50m today from Norwegian). The situation isn't exactly "dire".

The barometric altimeter gives the altitude above mean sea level. The radio altimeter gives the altitude above the ground.

Thought I'd share a story from many years ago. I flew STL-LAX on a TWA 757 flight that was continuing to HNL. 10 minutes before departure the pilot announced this aircraft is not authorised to go to HNL, so we need to disembark and board the 757 at the adjacent gate.

I don't believe the 5% of the XWB would be sufficient to merit a "NEO" for the A380 - I suspect it would have already happened if it were.

Based on your experience, what do you expect Airbus to do in terms of parts support if everyone retires the A380, and only Emirates decides to re-engine all their 120 A380s to keep them flying for another 10-15 years? Would Airbus even be interested in providing substantial support for that long? I...Jump to post
Many of the A380 models have never reached their FIRST overhaul period.. they might first have to ascertain what the weight and Thrust load on the wings is to even allow new engines to be hung on it. the airframe might not even make a difference if all the rest is OK from the wing box outwards but ...Jump to post
What’s the thinking behind closing the centre runway?

New engines on existing A380s, that aren't even that old yet, wouldn't be cheap. Nothing needs to be done in the short term, more like 6-8 years away.
