Re: E-170/175 Motion Sickness Question

I believe there are some physics involved that make tail engine aircraft yaw and pitch differently than wing mounted. Also noise and vibration are different if you sit up front on both. It could also be a matter of taxiing differences. I know that in the back of the long aircraft you get pushed sid...

The 778 is ULH and platform of the freighter. The A350-800 is neither. How many of each are on order? I can't remember. ...
