Short summary, translated: plane disappeared from radar, the crash site is scattered with pieces in a one kilometer radius, no fires on the ground, two bodies already found.
I have been using headphones with a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Switch (handheld console) on many airlines during boarding, taxi, take off and landing. The only time anybody complained was once on Turkish Airlines, when they didn't allow me to have my headphones on during taxi and take off. On Lufthans...Jump to post
Mostly any aircraft, that is new to me. The only aircraft I am excited in, which I already had, are either aircraft with more than two engines (so today mostly 747, A340 or A380) and some smaller props like ATR72 or Dash-8.Jump to post
I will take 2-4-2 in a A330/340, or better yet, 2-3-2 in a 767 over the 9-across 787 or 10-across 777 any time. And yes, the A350 should be 8-across Y-class too !! I agree, that A330/A340 with 2-4-2 in economy is much better, than 3-3-3 on the Dreamliner or 3-4-3 on the T7. Boeing intended the 787 ...Jump to post
Never been to AMS but of the other ones mentioned I prefer FRA, although LHR T5 was also quite nice. CDG is a nightmare. And as MUC and ZRH were mentioned a few times: MUC=ZRH>>>>>>FRA.Jump to post

It seems the shown concepts are so far not true at all. At the moment, there are no pictures or renders of the new livery available to the public. The D-ABYA will leave the painting-halls on 7th of February, that's probably the earliest date we can expect to get first REAL impressions. The official ...Jump to post
The presentation is probably in CW6.
It is said that LH is not only redesigning its livery, but also the whole brand is planned to be unified in every area, where Lufthansa uses its own name (means EW, LX or OS are not included).
I have heard that it's just going to be a variation of the current one. The yellow of the logo will disappear and be replaced by silver, much like the logo of their business class lounge. Official presentation should be on February 8th or 9th Yep, same thing I heard: only grey/silver crane, no ring...Jump to post
I've been in North Korea in October and I've talked about that with our tour guides about that. They told me, that only the Tu204 and the An-148 are on scheduled services. They were in fact quite good informed about aviation, they even told me, they sometimes have spotter groups coming to North Kore...Jump to post

There were only very few LH widebodies operating. Didn't see too many at the terminal, at least much much less than on a normal day. Most of them were standing on the south side or in the cargo area. Even quite a lot narrowbodies were not in operation, as many of them were standing on the tarmac in ...Jump to post
Yeah, probably christmas. I'm currently sitting on the train to FRA. It wasn't that easy to find a good flight to CAI, there wasn't even a fitting feeder from NUE, either because all were full or didn't operate at all. I’d like to see a photo of this. I'll try to take one once I'm in FRA and see som...Jump to post
The CFM-engine for the A318 was only offered by special request from Air France, although many airlines switched to the CFM-engine after their initial PW-engine order, as the PW-engine hat trouble meeting the promised specifications.Jump to post

Been discussed before. As of September 2017, Turkish Airlines flies to 302 destinations in 120 countries. That wasn't the question ;) The question was, which airlines fly to a lot of destinations in a certain, different country, not which airlines flies to the most destinations/countries in total. ...Jump to post
Been to FNJ in October, they in fact DO HAVE signs saying "international connection" inside the terminal. So I wouldn't say it's impossible per se. But as there are only very very few international flights from FNJ, I doubt there is any chance to do so at the moment. But actually you can b...Jump to post
easyJet had the A319 with 2 overwing exits on each side. A319 high density. Not sure if it was a special request from easyJet but it is currently offered to any airline. For example some Germanwings planes have them, too. Airbus and Honeywell are currently modifying the A300F4-600 for UPS Airlines ...Jump to post
In Japan this is still quite common. Had a flight from ITM to HND six weeks ago on a B787-8. They also use 767 und 777 for domestic routes. Besides that, I never had the chance to fly widebody on any domestic route. Intra-Europe I once was on LH A300-600 FRA-SVO, but that's it. In todays times I hav...Jump to post

I was on TK quite a few times this year. On long range in eco, as well as in business. I was quite disappointed. As winner of the "best airline of Europe" award for so many years in a row I didn't see ANYTHING, what was any better than for example LH, AF or BA. The only advantage it their ...Jump to post

I assume they get in via cargo with an Air Koryo flight. I've been to North Korea in October for a week. During checking in PEK there where a few guys, who checked in A LOT of luggage.

The more often I have been in IST the last 12 months, the more I started to hat that airport. By far the worst mega airport in Europe, even worse than CDG.

Been on that route quite a few times between Aug 2016 and Feb 2017, but only to Kuwait. The flight was always quite full.

Just now I did it again. Just booked NUE-ZRH-LCY on Swiss, just to fly with Bombardier CS100 and to try out London City airport.

I booked British Airways for FRA-LHR-JFK to get my first flights on Boeing 777 and Boeing 747.

The whiter, the cheaper. Probably.
And to be honest: neither Skyteam, nor Oneworld are fancier in any way. The latter one doesn't even use a real alliance-livery, they just replace the airline title with the alliance title of the specific airline's livery. Still, all of them are quite boring to watch.
I love airplanes with a long fuselage (A321, B757, B747, A340) in comparison to its wings. So just optically, the B777-300ER and the B787-10 are both quite appealing in fist place. At least much more than their respective shorter sisters (the 788 and 77L have a greater wingspan than length, which is...Jump to post
Please let me know how your "case" unfolds, and I'll do the same. Perhaps we can offer each other useful information along the way. So, first step is done.

What I wonder: how competitive is the standard 2-4-2-seating A340 compared to a standard 3-3-3-seating 777? The A340 was designed for and mostly used with 2-4-2 seating, only very few A340s have been used as tourist bombers with 3-3-3 seating (i.e. Air Caraibes, AirAsia X), whereas even many full se...Jump to post
The Air Force One (VC-25) has neither a dropping rescue capsule, nor a rear cargo door like in the movie with the same name.

**Left the airport, spend a night at the hotel and continued the next morning
My experience is different, especially when it comes to shops and restaurants. I've worked at bigger supermarket chain a few years ago: no credit cards at all. My sister works in a restaurant: neither credit, no debit cards. So I highly doubt your 95% credit card acceptance in restaurants. I do know...Jump to post
