Surprised to see such a dramatic change with MIA-GRU. Hopefully it recovers quickly.Jump to post

The 788 is still an amazing aircraft, even though most can do well with the 789. If you can't fill it, the 788 still makes a lot of sense and a pretty darn good 763ER replacement.
I think the A350 fits perfectly into their network. Glad it has performed well enough for a top up order.Jump to post
FI has 763's now. They fly those only to JFK on this side of the pond I believe. They could conceivably add more if the want to go head-to-head with WOW, but they don't need to match them in every city. FI has a very faithful passenger base. I think they also serve IAD, BOS, ORD, MSP and SEA Affirm...Jump to post

Ok this is just getting ridiculous. Why didn't Airbus add a GE option? Was it because GE didn't want to provide an engine for the type or because Airbus had a contract with RR? Why is it ridiculous? Boeing & Airbus have been doing exclusive deals on engine supply for some time. The reasons are ...Jump to post
Why would they need to defend a qualified, type-rated, employed pilot doing his job? Sorry but a 19 year old hardly has the maturity to be second in command of 150+ individuals. Is this the best Norwegian can hire? This is just complete nonsense. A matter of opinion with no basis on facts. Congrats...Jump to post
It seems many airlines have seem room for both families, which is a delight for any enthusiast!
How do these 2 families compliment each other? When each of them offer a smaller and larger variant, why would they order from both instead of sticking to one family of aircraft?
I think while everyone focuses on N. America - Western Europe on the A321LR, South America will be a big winner for the type. Airlines like Aeromexico, Avianca, and Azul should be all over this, as they can send narrow bodies all over Latin America. Turkish Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines could als...Jump to post
As a Brazilian, I completely and wholeheartedly disagree. But now we're going off topic. Please enlighten us how the livery reminds you of Portuguese colonization and how that is offending to you. That is not what I said. All I said is that I disagree that Brazilians in general see Portugal as a &q...Jump to post
It's almost shocking that none of the news outlets in Portugal have reported this as of this morning. just lots of bickering about the new administration and the close encounter with a drone. As beautiful as this livery is I have to question the decision to fly this plane to Brazil and Africa. This...Jump to post
I think the 787 might be too much aircraft for the route that could easily be done with the A330. Add the cost of introducing a new type and it just makes sense for them to stay with the A330 family.Jump to post

Simple white liveries work well with the A350 because of the raccoon mask. With other more complicated designs it just makes things busier or the black does not go well with the colors near it. Good observation. The raccoon mask really does shine on white liveries. Congrats DL and Airbus on a stunn...Jump to post

An airplane travelling over 500 mph makes a loud noise as it flies by, an amazing concept.
I can't believe the crew did nothing to stop it.Jump to post

Iran's revolutionary guards say Saudi Arabia was behind deadly attacks in Tehran.
Glad to see Finnair is happy with their A350s! Their livery actually looks stunning on the A359. I'm actually hard pressed to think of a bad looking one. The Air Caraibes A350 is my current "best looking plane" of any type. I have to agree, even LATAMs meh livery ends up looking nicer on ...Jump to post

How much extra range would a Mint heavy A321LR have over a standard config?Jump to post
I find it comical that this all stems from, mostly, Saudia Arabia lol The irony of it all.Jump to post
