Good question. Only Saudia bought it? The 797 isn't green lighted yet and I would be very cautious to say it will be. Bread and butters are called 737s and A32x series, not risky clean sheet designs. "Regional" by Chinese standards should mean feeder flights of less than 3/4 hours, I think...Jump to post
Happened a few tines to me arguably a while ago..
On a 727 in the early 1990's and on some RJ's, possibly a Saab 340 and ERJ 145.
Excuse me, but what would the impact on the cost of the current slots be?
Goes up because airlines will pay a bigger premium for LHR? Goes down bcs more slots will be available?
But I agree, this is all a bit iffy and wheny (still)...
Interesting that a day later and we still have no comments from the pilots? I'm intrigued what it was they were facing I am pretty sure they are needing some kind of psychological support now after their near-death-experience. Agreed. They will most likely have medical follow-up at least for the ne...Jump to post
It might explain the unusual vectors somewhat, but for those not in the know, the area around Lisbon can get surprisingly hilly, especially the north bank of the Tagus, as with Lisbon itself. The Alentejo around Beja, on the contrary, does have some rolling hills, but it's much flatter. Regards. B8887Jump to post
Does Portugal have a different system of incident reporting and investigation that's more public? I'm almost certain this event will be classified as an "accident", like others such as very severe turbulence, w/ or without damage (airframe and/or overhead bins for example), and will there...Jump to post
Yep, way before the jet age then.. Did the Stratocruiser have it?..
Since it's not specified, but military planes possibly beat civilian ones.
The B 52 has them, not sure about the B 36 and B 29, but it's very probable...
Just to add that I'm pretty sure I already saw an airline bragging about SET in an inflight magazine if I'm not mistaken. Not sure which one, possibly U2, and this was easily like 5 years ago, not 5 months ago. They even publish savings figures per fleet due to RETI. Correct. I separately saw the fi...Jump to post
This will not happen. Although truly inseparable from one another, both benefit from each other being independent. Airframers like A and B are not metal tube makers. They make extremely high tech stuff that requires billions in R&D plus enormous production means. Same for RR in a completely othe...Jump to post

Are the A330 Regional's and/or the 757s used for Transcontinental services in the US approved for ETOPS ops?... @BravoOne Quite interesting. Can interior furnishings have other influences over ETOPS, such as the kind of fabric in the seats and/or modules for meals or meal preparation for example?.. ...Jump to post
I'm also in for the Constellation and/or the Stratocruiser duo, in terms of regular, scheduled, timetabled service..
I saw some timetables of that not long ago..
The point about the possibility of being a mini EK is a valid one though.. LIS is indeed a strategic location and it's a pity they do not take more advantages out of it. On the other hand, Portugal is not the UAE and there are more differences that may explain that. TP in the US is really surprising...Jump to post
Interesting question. Is it all about the maintenance program? (!) Is there some kind of physical or software difference? Like you can order a car ( say a VW ) and you have two states of tune of the same engine? How much does an ETOPS 737 cost over a "standard" 737? Thx... Regards B8887Jump to post
I'll put the question another way as I think this topic has not been covered that much. How does the cargo market differ from, say, the early 1990's before the e-commerce boom as we know it today? A lot? A little? I mean, passenger aviation is well covered on these forums, but cargo... Anything you ...Jump to post

Interesting, this puts it on par with the ME3 on the one-stop-close-to-Europe route..

Thank you for your answers so far.. Secure documents? Didn't know about that one.. For example? Contracts?.. One thing I find curious is the lack of info about this issue.

It's pretty much self explanatory. Which kind of cargo do freight planes carry the most? For example those rows of tails at Memphis or Cologne? Foodstuffs? Smartphones? Microwaves? Clothing? I would say by number of items (small or lighweight items may be carried on large numbers) and by tonnage. Ar...Jump to post

Probably more elsewhere..
Please correct or comment if necessary.
EK still uses remote stands at DXB for some flights. Quite a different experience from the air conditioned terminal....
Not sure about Fly Dubai. Does QR use remote stands at DOH?
Portuguese PM is in the United States and made the announcement there.
No info on frequencies.

Yes, the return of the Airliners.net Blue to the forums is welcome. I am still very cautiously optimistic that a.net can be saved. A few comments.

Yes, you can buy an airliner if you are average Joe, however, there are a few points worth pointing out: -buying a 45 to 300M USD airliner is not exactly like walking to your local Ford leadership and driving out in a F-150, as there are not many Boeing or Airbus dealerships around.

@lightsaber I think the country is run by a mafia. "Isolation" is a word I see often in the headlines about it. Leaders in Venezuela are behaving in the same way N. Korean leaders do. They are obsessive, compulsive, neurotic and paranoid. The only population that suffers is theirs. Regards. B8887Jump to post
Honestly, I think that country might seriously want to start to think about asking for outside help. For the astronomical crime rate alone, some kind of peacekeeping force might come in hand. They have problems of their own making that only affect themselves.
Which orientation would this new runway have?...
How many new "jetbridged" parking positions would the new terminal add?...
