The Core Truths Of A-Net Part 2

Tue Nov 24, 2015 2:33 am

I loved the last thread and didn't see a continuation after it was locked for having well over 300 replies, so here it is! A few of mine:

Whenever a flight diverts, it means that the airline must stop flying that aircraft type on that route immediately.

Airlines flying to MNL hemorrhage money on pax, but get a ton from checked bag fees for balikbayan boxes.

Operators losing money on the A340 have an easy solution, they can just cut off two of the hairdryers and voila that way they have an A330.

"A/C" means aircraft, not air conditioning.

Everyone knows all the world's IATA airport codes, even those not in the A.net database that you can't hover over with your mouse to get the full name.

As an add-on, typing the code for a city versus an airport makes you look intelligent.

When an airline announce it stops flying to TLV from financial reasons, it's actually because of political reasons

1) Second tier, nee second rate US cities such as CLE, CVG, CMH, PIT, STL especially if under the rustbelt persona have very good service. They have seats to hubs, good enough for them.

2) There is a bottomless pit of O&D at the likes of ORD and similar hubs and thats why more and more, and then more and more service is always being added to the already fierce competition and even if more than 50% of filled seats on a typical hub airline originate elsewhere.

3) FROM THE PREVIOUS THREAD:
"I've heard BA is starting service to (put MSY / STL / MEM / BNA / CLE). (Put MSY / STL / MEM / BNA / CLE) is booming, look at those new developments downtown"

These cities contribute little to the robust booming US economy, they should be lucky to have seats/service that they do. That BDL and PVD will have TATL before them, if ever, is because of their ideal coastal locations, secondary ports of entry in dense population and whatever else comes to mind...

4) My beloved city/airport is way bigger and better than yours because of some Freudian thing.

5) Hubs can only be located in the densest population centers do to the huge O&D, with the exception of (you know which) because of their unique geographical location.

6) Frequency thru hubs for our less blessed airports is preferred to nonstop, even if it takes all day

The A380 is an ugly fat misfit dog, which is not fit to stand at the gate next to the queen of the skies.

Airbus should cease production immediately.

At least once a day, a thread about the A380 will be started and it will either claim it needs to be cancelled immediately because no one other than EK wants it or the future is very bright, it's only a matter of time until all major hubs are maxed out and only larger aircraft are the answer to congestion.

On above thread, NAV30 will explain why only big twins will ever be needed and PhoenixVIP will immediately post by typing NAV30's word for word except he'll change "A380" to "B777X." These two will go back and forth for at least 20 replies.

most of the a-netters feel the b757 is a beautiful plane, thus not knowing that its aft fuselage is of greater diameter than the forward one, making it actually ugly as hell! the same feature makes the b727 really sweet looking, since the fat behind goes well along with the 2nd engine!

I don't like X airlines new paint scheme since they did not do it the way I would have (example attached).

A corollary to that is: Since they did not do their retro scheme the way I would have (or picked the era for the former scheme that I would have) they should not have done it at all.

Unions are the worst thing that's ever happened to the airline industry. Anytime an airline posts a quarterly loss or files for bankruptcy it's because of their corrupt, greedy unions. Crews should work for what the bean counters tell them they should work for and be happy about it.

Scarebus side-sticks are a seriously dangerous design flaw. If they provided "tactile feedback", poor maintenance and insufficient pilot training wouldn't matter. No, we do not care if the latter are named primary causes for accidents in official investigation reports.

When an Airbus crashes it is due to either their build or those awful computers that want to throw the pilot out of the cockpit and let's not forget those awful "joysticks", when a Boeing crashes, it's the shitty pilots.

Heavy discounts are also only an Airbus thing, Boeing always sell their planes only on merit and close to list price, because they're that amazing!

Two sides of the military forum:

-The F-35 is God's gift to the world's militaries and is the be-all-and-end-all for combat aircraft
-The only replacement for an A-10 is another A-10, and Air Force brass are stupid for wanting to retire it

Global warming is nonsense and it costs the industry too much. Why would I want to leave a nicer planet for my children anyway? Greenie nonsense

The 777X is going to be the most efficient thing in the world and render everything from Camrys to iPads as obsolete.

Two sides of the military forum:
-The F-35 is God's gift to the world's militaries and is the be-all-and-end-all for combat aircraft
-The only replacement for an A-10 is another A-10, and Air Force brass are stupid for wanting to retire it

   The A400M is God's gift to the world's militaries and is the be-all-and-end-all for transport aircraft
   The only replacement for a C-17 is another C-17, and Air Force brass are stupid for buying more

When an Airbus crashes it is due to either their build or those awful computers that want to throw the pilot out of the cockpit and let's not forget those awful "joysticks", when a Boeing crashes, it's the shitty pilots.
Quoting 777Jet (Reply 37):
A.net truth: Airbus pilots who pull back on the stick during a stall and have poor or non-existent communication skills which result in fatal crashes are not bad pilots...

All captains from "developing nation X" are super-entitled ex-military egotists who can't actually fly a plane and their FOs are sniveling turds who piss themselves whenever they even think about having to speak to the captain.
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

The quality of an airline's product offering is solely determined by whether or not they offer pajamas, the classes of service that are entitled to said pajamas, their appearance, and the quality of their material and their manufacturing.

A random geek will post to other random geeks some random geeky idea. Some random geeks will respond that this geekishness isn't worth geeking out over, as it's too random and geeky for this random geeky forum.

Despite the appearance of randomness of geek opinion, some random geeks will be substantively correct in decrying excessive random geekishness.

Some posters will appear to be geekbots posting the same thoughts by randomly alternating words such as "a380" and "bad" or "twins" and "good" or "random" and "geek."

Geeks on a.net will tend to miss humor, especially of the self-deprecating kind. These geeks may be advertising bots who lack the humor upgrade.

Only business travelers make any money for the airlines. Leisure travelers are flown at a huge loss; the airlines simply fly them because they are kind-hearted and benevolent.
