- Scandinavian Airlines has not been profitable since the last millennium, and has only survived because of government support. All financial reports showing a positive revenue are false, or is only due to government handouts.
- Norwegian Air Shuttle are greedy, egoistic a**holes who only hire foreigners and don't care about their employees.
- When an Airbus crashes it's because of the aircraft design, not because of poor pilot training.
- When a Boeing crashes, it's rarely found again. Maybe except a flaperon.
- The Fairchild Metroliner is a Frankenstein aircraft made by idiots to be flown by professionals.
- The B1900D was made by professionals to be flown by idiots.
- The 737 MAX is actually just the latest incarnation of the 707 twinjet, and a ridiculus attempt to milk the last few drops of efficiency out of this half a century old design.
- The A321neoLR is God's gift to airlines and can replace every 757. As long as you don't carry fish.

When you do a search through this forum with "core truths" as keywords (by topic field), you actually get zero results.

When you do a search through this forum with "core truths" as keywords (by all fields), you get five results - all old and irrelevant.

When you upload a self-gloss post on non-av, you get the "cargo bay" pic within 3 subsequent replies (not later than after 15 minutes on average).

When you have a B747 loaded with pigeons and they all fly at once, the aircraft:
-> gets lighter because the birds no longer push on the floor.
-> retains exactly the same weight as before, because why on earth would it change?
-> actually gets heavier because of the bird droppings all over the floor.
(make your pick)

Every 6 months someone posts this video as an example of an unbelievable irresponsibility of the pilots and a heart-stopping ordeal for the pax:

If BA introduce a new short haul service from LHR it must be slot sitting for new longhaul services that have yet to be announced.

British people who should know better misuse the word THERE when THEIR is correct, just to irritate me.

eg There is a rumour that BA have cancelled their plans to fly an all J class A318 from LCY to either MSP or STL as a result of the pressure from a.net for them to introduce a four daily A380 service to MIA instead. The BA representative in Narnia, their latest slot sitting destination says there will be a triangular service with Neverneverland starting in Julember.

LHR-SYD non-stop will never happen because people like to stretch their legs halfway around the way.

The F-35 will be cancelled a quarter of the way into its production run because:

1)a new leftist government was elected in x country.

2)the lift system is malfunctioning.

3)eye-watering high costs.

Any photo with an even remotely attractive woman and an aircraft in it, will have two hundred comments underneath along the lines of "If you look really hard you can see a plane".

Corollary : if the woman is in a bikini, 20% of comments would be along the lines of "Nice undercarriage".

A core truth of A.net is often simply a widely-held view with which one disagrees. Labelling such a "core truth" allows the labeler to dismiss the idea entirely without examining its content.

What they really heard:
My AA friend was actually complaining about US Airways FA wanting to merge seniority since it'll impact her bid lines, but I don't care so I only heard what I really wanted to hear.
