Still haven't heard if EK has decided to bring their 380's back to DFW yet?Jump to post
I would like to hear an update from RR regarding their 787 Trent engine repairsJump to post
Cool article from DMN today on the top routes from DFW and DAL... not new routes but gives us an idea (however imperfect the metric) of the most revenue-producing routes. https://www.dallasnews.com/business/airlines/2018/07/11/airlineroutes-generate-cash-north-texas-top-10 I'm very surprised that t...Jump to post
My first and best guess would be DeltaJump to post

Looks like they expanded the area where QF's 380 naps between flights, they even added lights.
FI and WW now RON at DFW , so the extra ramp space was needed
indeed 777X is the first one on the list https://www.reuters.com/article/us-etihad-airways-boeing-exclusive/exclusive-etihad-airways-in-talks-to-cancel-defer-boeing-777x-orders-sources-idUSKBN1J92FF I'm sure Boeing would love to make a deal with BA to takeover EY's 777X slots. Perhaps B can sweeten...Jump to post

Isnt QATAR still in Oneworld Alliance ?
Wonder if EK might join the club?
Cannot wait to see the 1st CX A350-1000 roll out and 1st flight! Their livery on the A350 looks great! Agreed, then again the 350 is such a good looking plane it's hard to look bad!! The one I like least has to be QR..... That's probably because QR was the first to obtain the A350, so everyone want...Jump to post

This is amazing! Simply put, an elegant refresh.
Lufthansa should learn how to refresh a corporate identity. This is the way to go.
DAL can easily grow beyond its current size of 20 gates. Remember that the airport use to be the principle airport for the region with ~70 gates until DFW opened. It is artificially being restrained far below its max capacity. MDW has double the gates of DFW with more passengers and aircraft moveme...Jump to post
Allow commercial flights out of the Collin County Airport in McKinney. Majority of the area's growth is up there in big sky country. Love Field is a landlocked in town airport like Midway that really can't grown beyond it's current size. DAL can easily grow beyond its current size of 20 gates. Reme...Jump to post

Also, DL has the MD-80 & MD-90 retirements to deal with as well as bringing the new CS100
fleet up to speed. Makes sense to make the investment to keep the A320's going for awhile longer
But it didn't have a perfect operational record except for the crash in 2000. There was a Concorde flight from IAD to CDG in 1979 that had wing damage from a blown tire at takeoff. A passenger noticed damage on the wing and was able to get a pilot to look at it before the plane got up to supersonic...Jump to post
Perhaps an announcement in a few weeks at Farnborough?Jump to post
I’m quite curious how they got it into the airport in the first place. It’s not exactly the first time something like this has happened, and the TSA/DHS/FBI should’ve done something about it by now. I'm not sure how it is at DFW or other airports but at my airport airside employees go through basic...Jump to post
So anyone know when LH will repaint their first 380 in the new livery?Jump to post
While DL, B6, and F9 are domestic carriers that already serve DFW, all 3 of these carriers have opportunities to add additional nonstop routes out of DFW. DL could bring back nonstop service to its SEA hub and its BOS and RDU focus cities from DFW. B6 could add nonstop service to FLL and JFK from D...Jump to post
Don't you love it when some desk sitter air force wonk creates an issue without establishing what the existing fleet experience is. Then has to eat crow or become the turkey that made the aircraft undeliverable. That's one way of looking at it. Another is to point out that Boeing has made improveme...Jump to post
You know, Boeing could offer BA earlier delivery slots for additional 787's and eventually 777X's
if ETIHAD ends up cancelling or deferring their Boeing orders.

I'm betting on quite a few 78J's ....also curiuos if they opt for GE engines instead of thr RR Trents.
BA can't be happy with the current RR engine mess and might take the chance to send a strong message to RR
BA 192/193 still showing on the ba.com site. I'd hate to see them leave and stick us with only AA on DFWLHR None of the changes are uploaded. AA 38/39 (MIA-LHR) are still on the AA site. The changes will come over the weekend. BA isn’t pulling out of DFW-LHR likely a down gauge if anything. BA192/1...Jump to post

What is the ETOPS number required for US west coast- Hawaii flight? 180 240?Jump to post
I'm wondering how many of these stored 777's will get short term work covering for the RR
powered 787's that are currently grounded?
The Airbus brand is gold to airlines customers, this is a good way to show potential CS customers
that Airbus is committed to the C Series long term.
So we'd have the A210 , A230 and possibly the A250 ?
https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/278311/lufthansa-s19-preliminary-long-haul-changes-as-of-23apr18/ Lufthansa looks to be bringing in the 346 to DFW for Summer 2019.
