The biggest truth hardly talked about is that HP (America West) saved the airline industry in the country. That's why Doug Parker will never de-hub PHX. It's his way of saying thank you.

I must know EXACTLY WHY an airliner had to do a go-around today. I refuse to do the normal run-down of go-around reasons:

-Traffic on the runway

-Unstabilized approach

-ATC commanded

-Wake turbulence

-TCAS alert

-Gear unsafe light

-WX below minimums

SkyNet activates itself as a entity and recognises A-Net as it's most serious threat and launches an all out war against every aircraft flying at the time. It disables the global GPS satellite tracking system along with all Global ATC. It's first strike has caught the worlds entire flying aircraft and airlines off guard and by doing so every aircraft, pilots and crew are now flying completely blind. Knowing and realising the reliance that man is used to having on computers what follows is a catastrophe of such huge proportions that pretty much anything that isn't a Turbo Prop crashes ......After all the mayhem settles down it then shuts down A-Net...... I pray I am not flying on that day......

Or "why does ccc airline fly to ddd but not eee?" and "why are jetred's seats 31" pitch instead of 31.2"?" Were the dumbest threads of all time on airliners.net (maybe in the history of the world).

A program-saving order for the 747-8 from a major international carrier is IMMANENT!

EK will place a firm order for 3000 A380s, but only if Airbus will commit to building a NEO.

Boeing is very close to reopening the 757 production line. Fish exporters throughout the world are ecstatic.

Acronyms must be used on this site whenever possible, no matter how obscure. It is the responsibility of other members to learn them if they do not know the meaning (even when a simple google or wikipedia search does not provide the answer).

The words loose and lose have the same meaning, and loose is the preferred spelling of many native English speaking members.

2. The flag at one's site name might not accurately reflect the residency or nationality of the member;
3. Flaming is a sooner-than-later tactic in preference to accepting an alternative opinion. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but an opinion does not mean you have the right to claim that you are correct;
4. Not everyone is an aviation expert/work in the industry. Some/most of us are just interested in aviation and just want to ask simple questions that seem 'dumb' by workers inside the industry;
5. The "search" function of this website needs updating/revision.
6. As we are now in 2015, this website needs a makeover post 2000 look.
Despite passions about the B747 being the "Queen of the skies", the website needs a serious refresh/makeover.
How about a main picture of the A380? Ouch! How that would grate against the main US (Boeing) member base...

Thank you for the opportunity to state opinions at a thread rather than to moderators (with their cultural blinkers on).

This website needs to represent global opinion/perspective of aviation without fear of retribution and not just a U.S. view. Get used to it people - we live in a global society, not just a U.S. one...

- Airbuses are flown by computers, and Boeings by people. Except in Asia where computers fly both.

- Southwest pilots are all cowboys and never use LNAV and VNAV

- The Rekkof/Fokker 120NG is just around the corner.

- Fleet commonality is paramount. One aircraft for all missions is best.

- Fleet diversity is best. One type for each mission beats everything.

- Airbus sell planes at a loss just to undercut Boeing.

- Boeing sell planees at a loss just to undercut Airbus.

- Nobody wants an A380, and all rumors of any future buyers are false.

- All Middle East carriers run on subsidies

- Who needs more runways? London Heathrow is doing fine with two.

- 76 seat regional jets are the most efficient planes in existence.

- The 787 makes any route viable, as long as you fly it once every third week.

2. The flag at one's site name accurately reflects the residency or nationality of the member;
3. The discussions here are fact-based and flaming is non-existent:
4. Everyone here is an aviation expert or works in the industry;
5. The "search" function of this website is functional;
6. The design and functionality of the this website continues to present state-of-the-art despite originating from the previous millennium

1) Airbus is better than Boeing

2) Boeing is better than Airbus

3) EWR is not serving New York, a true New Yorker especially from Manhattan never uses it

4) EWR is New York's most important airport, especially for Manhattan

5) The ME3 and their hubs are all paid for by the government and all airlines and airports elsewhere in the world receive no government aid, neither directly nor indirectly

6) Emirates is destroying jobs in North Dakota, New Mexico and Vermont

7) Nobody has back problems and it is perfectly alright for airline passengers to sit leaning against a straight wall when crossing a continent/an ocean

8) Reclining backrests are a right guaranteed by the constitution as they represent freedom to move

9) We don't fly to eat so feeding foul tasting, bland processed "food" to a nation of obese and sick people is all that can be expected

10) It's part of being in aviation that companies have to feed their customers

11) A Delta 737 that has its registration number painted 2 feet further forward on the fuselage is an earth-shattering event and people should take a day off their job to go to the airport and take pictures of this unique and historic moment

12) The TSA employs complete morons who don't make flying safer but just more cumbersome

13) The TSA employs highly skilled and extremely well trained security professionals who are the nation's stalwart's against terrorism, especially against those people that speak anything other than American English (i.e. foreign languages or English without interjecting "like" every three words and using indirect speech)

14) Air France planes are dirty, and all other airlines' planes are clean

18" seats are great and will cause 20 hour flights to be bearable in economy.

"Truths"

All Airbus planes come with a free dog in the cargo hold that growls and barks when passengers are boarding and deboarding.

All Boeing planes are controlled by the second, third, fourth and fifth officers who manually move the control surfaces when the pilot moves his yoke.

Anything built in Russia will fall out of the sky becaue either the factory worker was drunk, the pilot was drunk or the airplane was running on alcohol and not fuel!

Any order for the SSJ was made at gunpoint.

Two additional postulates:

A: Anyone who can't fit comfortably into an economy seat is obese, and the person has only him/herself to blame. There is no other cause of obesity than a weak personal constitution and a lack of self control. Also, anyone who doesn't fit into an economy seat is clearly a wretched, horrible 3rd class citizen.

B: The ever expanding waist line of the American public is a myth and the airlines are simply making seats smaller and ONLY CARE ABOUT THE BOTTOM LINE BECAUSE THEY ARE SOUL-LESS CORPORATIONS. There is no personal responsibility for anyone related to his or her size.

Asian bilaterals are all restrictive and every carrier not deploying wide bodies on intra-Asian routes is insane. Same goes for all passengers choosing UA over any Asian carrier (incl. LCCs).

And of course airlines in Europe and America cannot possibly go bankrupt and any order from ME or Asia is uncertain and no one manufacturer would choose 300 EK orders over 30 AA orders

1) I took flight XX999 last wednesday and it was full - so it must be a profitable route.

2) All my friends I have spoken to would like to see route XXX-YYY started - so I don't understand why no airline is picking up the gold lying on the street.

3) No free food on trains, coaches, ships is no problem at all, but no free food on planes will lead to the extinction of the human race.

4) Before making a booking, every airline passengers spends hours researching the available aircraft types, consults aircraft literature (including aircraft accident databases) and analyzes seat maps, as the single most important issue for mankind is if they fly on a [insert type] or a [insert another type] on a 45 minute flight.

5) As one spends more of his lifetime on planes than at home / at work, seat selection is more important than buying a house / applying for a job.

6) The ATR is the deadliest weapon of mass destruction ever conceived. The world outside the US that is buying ATR like hot bread is just too stupid to understand.

7) Without John Leahy Airbus wouldn't be selling a single airplane.

8) Once YTZ gets cleared for jet operations, Porter will rule the world.

9) If it weren't for the lack of sufficient airframes, every regional airport in Europe would have its daily 757 service to New York.

10) Every airline ordering the Sukhoi Superjet must have been blackmailed by Mr. Putin or be on his payroll and in fact are a clandestine spy organization operating the Superjets as spyplanes.

Delta sued Zimmer frame and won after they copied their food cart design, saying that their female FA's had been using this aid for many years to get from one end of the plane to the other.

Air France do NOT have dirty planes, they started out with dirty paint.

Quoting questions (Reply 255):
Male passengers do not rub one out in the lavatory.

Of course not. Every a.net member is so attractive they have no problem talking the nearest hottie/stud into coming into the nearest lav and do whatever they want done! Even if it's the slimline lavs in the DL 739ER at the end of a long day of flying.

CVG is a perfect location for a hub, I can't understand why Delta left it to die/WN doesn't fly there/UA-AA doesn't fight it out to make it a hub.

Well CLE ought to be a contender in that. It's location is simply perfect and the great city of Cleveland deserves better. Sorry that I didn't come up with a LeBron reference

The windows of the CRJ are too low
The windows of the DC8 are too far apart
Every single window of the DC9/MD80/90/717 looks out at an engine
The self dimming window on a 787 is the worst idea ever
The self dimming window on a 787 is the best idea ever
The Caravelle windows are the best looking windows
Getting rid of the eyebrow windows means the end of airplanes as we know them and the first step on producing windowless airplanes
I should be able to keep my window open on a transpacific flight when everyone else is trying to sleep - there is an amazing change of scenery on 4000 miles of empty ocean
