The revival of sjc is thanks to the 787 right?Jump to post
The Boeing that pulled the CSeries shenanigans and the KC-46 shenanigans is entirely capable of selling these planes at 60 million dollars apiece to a foreign carrier. I'll go one step further and say these planes were probably financed through the export-import bank IE the US taxpayers all in the ...Jump to post
There are more than enough pilots, there are not enough pilots willing to work for such low pay and benefits that many airlines are offering.Jump to post
10 feet lower could have been tragedy, congratulating the pilots is premature to me it looks as if they were the cause of too much correction at the last minute at too low an altitude. I'd like to know the total time of both pilots in the cockpit, is the right seat a cadet position?Jump to post
glad everyone is okayJump to post

I think the A321s are meant to be transferred to Niki
With a fleet approaching 20 years it is about time to order a bunch of 777F’s Good site for overview: https://www.lh-taufnamen.de/cargo/ Would not be surprised to see them order 10, and 5 options within the next couple of years. They had a chance to buy used 777F's and AeroLogic bought them instead.Jump to post
Russians spy ...Russia is a shady counry. It should come as no surprise that they have copied the designs of other manufacturers. Why would they be SO obvious about it though ??

Seriously with some people here, Interjet literally added a bunch of capacity to the US just a few days ago... PVR, SJD, BJX to LAX...

Yeah, I'm sorry, but I also don't quite understand your point about the US government and its specific impact on Interjet. Can you flesh this out a bit?

I would have thought some Middle Eastern Emir, Sheikh, etc..., would have ordered one because he can.

I don't think US tourist travel to Mexico has dropped at all - that's not what you mean, right? well yeah, a little - as I stated, I am aware of the drop in Mexican tourism to the US (lets be honest, it was quite predictable after the US election), I am actually surprised it is only 16% .

Perhaps México isn’t but quite the market for a premium LCC? The current American government and endless cartel violence I do not think is welcoming to tourist and small business growth.

I don't get it, how would the Air Force compel unwilling people to join up? Also how motivated and effective will a bunch of conscripts be against a determined enemy?

It's something -- for all of the furor over patriotism lately, you'd think folks would maybe be a little better at it/could get things right. Better at "it"? It is having "patriotism" to sing the national anthem inappropriately on a flight carrying a dead solder? Trying to one-u...Jump to post
Way back in the day around 1981 or 1982 I used to fly for C & M airlines based in IYK. Far different in those times with a glut of underpaid pilots and probably more defense spending, there was quite a demand between IYK and LAX as well as Edwards AFB, Palmdale, and even Barstow. San Diego and ...Jump to post
Global supertanker was here in Chile a few months ago and there is no doubt about how good it is.

RIP On 777 freighter flights, at what point do they add relief pilots? At 6-7 hours, this AUH-AMS flight was sort of mid-range and makes some sense it was only a crew of 2.
