The rhetoric from Israel is ridiculous. You attack a country and are surprised when you meet resistance ? A bomber is shot down and you need to retaliate ? I agree, they reacted like a child caught with his hand in the cookie jar. I fully support Israel's right to defend themselves, and if this UAV...Jump to post

TU-204 is a good airplane. But I don't recall Aeroflot having or leasing them.
From the photo section (not my shot) 4815831 The Alaska titles could be a little taller and a little higher, but that’s still one of the best looking liveries I’ve seen in a while I think it looks a lot better on the Airbus than the 737. Me too, I think it looks absolutely awesome on the A320 :spin:Jump to post
Air Force One is full of tech that’s ludicrously expensive and yet utterly pointless. The counter measure flares have never been needed and never will. Also the mid air refuelling capability was a real nuisance and expense to fit and yet that hasn’t been used either. The longest flight was when Pre...Jump to post
I am confused here on who complained, a Malay or a Kiwi. Malaysia is a mix of three different cultures with three distinct dress codes. Air Asia uniform is no different than what Chinese wear daily. Did the Kiwi Doctor/Doctorate miss the NZ's swimsuit ad? Technically it's a NZ women, somehow writin...Jump to post
They’re “metal neutral” but people have a preference. I prefer to avoid the intrusive and pointless security theatre from G4S whenever I fly a US airline transatlantic. If there was a case for BA deploying a B788 then it would be a good thing for the market. The reason AA dropped BOS-LHR was the ha...Jump to post
Have you seen any pictures of stored A332s/773s at DWC? You wouldn't because no one will be daring enough to take pictures of dilapidated planes and make out of the country safely. Yeah, nobody can take photos of dilapidated planes in the UAE and make it out of the country safely. You're funny. :ro...Jump to post

I'm sure that he was visiting Malta for 100% legitimate reasons that had nothing to do with offshore shell companies, tax structures etc..... :roll: Why would it matter to this story though?

Would a 787-9 work on this route ? Maybe nonstop to Los Angeles and a stop in Honolulu( or nonstop) on the way back. This works best for Vietnam airlines without having to get a new type of plane into their fleet since they already have 787-9 and A350-900's. The 777-9 seems like too much airplane f...Jump to post
Thanks for the update OMAA. If the 332s are not a temporary measure and they are getting the full VS product then this is actually a good thing for MAN. Do you know if MAN is keeping the 744s as well? Much will depend on that really, since running 332s on the MCO route will be a significant drop in ...Jump to post
Ouch. Manchester flyers utterly shafted to preserve London. I stand to be corrected but there can't be many aircraft available to short term lease with similar products to VS's own. Premium economy flyers, maybe, but not economy flyers. In Y, I'll choose a 330 over a 787 anyday. There are no 787s a...Jump to post
The sole An22 paid a flying visit today and is due back next week. Additionally, Lufthansa diverted in a 744 due medical issues. Anybody know the revised schedule for the AN22? It's running way behind the published schedule and is currently in Gandor. As for Cathay, there's always the A35K going fo...Jump to post
As explained above, the current B778 doesn't have the capabilities that QF needs and the A359ULR even less so. According to Flightglobal, Boeing is looking at options to make a B778 variant that would meet the required specs: https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/boeing-focused-on-777-8-tweaks...Jump to post

Lets hope Willie Walsh finally orders some 777X for BA because BA still has an order for A350-1000 starting delivery soon. The BA orders for Boeing have not been the same since the Lord King era. Lord King, Sir Colin Marshall and Roger Ayling were the BA CEO's who ordered all the 744 and 777-200ER ...Jump to post
The flight has actually started but isn't on BA.com yet, it is, however, in the BA timetable and bookable via some 3rd party sites, but at £1300 Rtn for a flight that also stops at CBG, most will probably continue to route throug other hubs, But available on the cheap via the miracle of avios!

I was appalled to see the way they kind of dragged that poor man who had to jump for dear life. I hope he didn't sustain serious injuries because of that "help". I also expected a more immediate action against the fire itself. That is a major fire, no doubt it's better to get them the hec...Jump to post
I can tell you as a resident of the UK that it's big bad Boeing/the USA who has been getting a trashing over here about all of this. I imagine there will be some warplane cancellations but that's about it. It's not like the government can instruct BA not to buy Boeing next time to teach them a lesson.Jump to post
The article suggests they may go to Australia. Quite the difference between 9 abreast 777s and 787sJump to post
TS's A330s are 9 abreast though right? Doesn't exactly fit with the newer, more mainline experience that TCX are promoting on their long haul ops. I sort of suspect the TS 330 will be a short haul tourist bomber?Jump to post
Wow. I can't believe it, despite all the last minute reprieves I didn't actually think they would end like this. I've enjoyed many flights on Monarch over the years, and flown on almost all of their post 1990 fleet. After the last crisis I went out of my way to support the airline and book with them...Jump to post
Agreed. The fact this was a freight flight and the FO was completely on his own and unable to help the Captain is traumatizing to imagine. To clarify, I'm not referring to the ability of the FO to get the A/C safely on the ground - they do that every day. But to helplessly watch as your co-worker p...Jump to post
I'm kind of surprised the A330neo did not win. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain, lots of trained pilots around, lots of spare parts, etc. Good range, good capacity, good economy.

Thanks Sir Tim. Totally captain obvious stuff, but maybe it doesn't seem that way from inside the US?Jump to post
The reason? EI says it is sticking with 330s, which is a fine aircraft no doubt, but with its hub at Dublin growing, it doesn't seem to make sense to stay with an aircraft of the same capacity they've had for the last 20 years. My guess: the case made by IB for these aircraft was better than that m...Jump to post
