LH's 744's are no doubt in immaculate condition, but aren't those some of the highest
hour 744's still in service. Surely, the remaining 744's will be the first to be replaced?
Another question......are EY's A380's leased or owned by the carrier?Jump to post
Any bets on when they EK/ EY merger is announced?Jump to post

Other than flying on a BA queen many years ago, biggest thrill for me was walking thru RA001 an the Museum of Flight in SEA couple years ago. She's been repainted and restored to her former glory and looks great. Unfortunately, the upper deck / flight deck was roped off day I visited , but still gre...Jump to post

Reality is UA won't absorb these taxes, they'll just bump up their fares to cover the additional expense,
so UA's customer base will get soaked in the end.

No, but the plane will not start doing extreme load testing until the static test frame has been tested to Limit Load and Ultimate Load.

The Lufthansa upgauge to an A340-600 was unfortunately cancelled Was it? I must have missed that. Shame. I didn’t hear that either. I’m sad to hear that, but I’m sure it will be upgauged at some point guven the consistently strong load factors. We’ve taken the flight a couple times. We are looking ...Jump to post
IMHO...... Boeing should be working on a 787-3 V2.0 to cover whatever the upper
end of the MOM market is and save their $$$$$$$$ for a true clean sheet 737 replacement.
Rumours abound of a new BA livery launching with the A350. I guess we'll need to keep an eye on the tail... It's having the current Union Flag (i.e. the tail logo) put onto the sharklets as well. Nothing major. Source: the internal company forum. There's a picture but doubt I'm allowed to post it. ...Jump to post
Don't see why smaller airports can't have private screeners if they're following
TSA guidelines. Hell, chances are the private screeners would be an upgrade

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

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.

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

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
