The windowless spots on the 787 is space that usually has Galley/Lavatory/closet space on the plane. They don't need windows there. If they were there they might have to remove components if there is a seal or inner window issue. That would be an expensive repair. Not true. Look towards the back of...Jump to post

It's 2017, you can basically change everything else (including gender), so I can't see why you can't change your birth year. Legally? No, but it will come.

No alcohol though :( Chances are, if they are going to Saudi for Umrah, alcohol availability will not be high on their list of priorities. That is correct, Muslims don't drink alcohol.

I spotted an Alia Dreamliner taxing at TLV at 0849 local on Sunday. Public flight data sites don't list any RJ 787 flight to TLV that day, any ideas ? special charter ?

That's overstated. It's true that those people exist, but to assign them to be "large swaths" of the country gives the wrong impression to any reader who doesn't have actual experience here.

Is the .8" that big of a deal breaker when the 77W is 17"? It certainly is. I actively try to avoid Boeing widebodies if I'm flying economy (except the 767) because of the horrific configurations. It's not really Boeing's fault (although Airbus seems to have designed the width of their pl...Jump to post
There are few, if any, people so far up their own posteriors as those who hail from Turkey. They are brainwashed from an early age to believe Turkey is the best at every. single. thing.

MAGA is about making the country great for the middle class again, meaning the middle 60% of the country by income. The highest 20% and lowest 20% should not be running the country. This is a fight over money. The middle class has been the victim of the biggest robbery ever on Earth - tens of trill...Jump to post

Why is that surprising? The A321NEO has significantly more range than the CEO. Will probably see a lot more TATL flights like these in the future.
8 hours in a narrowbody isn't unheard of, just ask the 757
Flying transatlantic, the last thing I want to do is have to worry about all the incidental sevices and coats.

I think he means the PTU when the aircraft only has one engine running.

Funny how we did not hear people outraged when Obama pardoned Puerto Rican terrorists (who never expressed guilt...) or traitors, but are outraged that an 85-year old guy won't be sent to prison for 6 months because of a witch-hunt of a politicized DOJ that refused him a jury trial in contravention...Jump to post

Why fly a 346 when you can fly a 359 with 30% or more lower operating costs?

As much as I despise 10-abreast in a 777 (787 9x doesn't seem any better, but I've never spent seven+ hours in one), the bigger safety issue is probably the demonstrated likelihood that people will not leave their carry-on behind in the "unlikely event" of an emergency evacuation.

Good to see Norwegian disrupting the "joint ventures" (read: price fixing) from the US3 and their European counterparts. I think there is a market for this LCC TATL model.

Sorry, but the NYT's opinion (and those of far left loons) mean nothing to me. YOU guys created Trump. We (the GOP) tried nominating nice guys. John McCain was a proven centrist and a good man.
