I see it the other way around, regarding the A338 at HA. Why wouldn't this MTOW not apply to the A338 as well? A 251t A338 is exactly what HA needs/wants. They could server ALL of the Pacific rim and Western Europe, non-stop from HNL: SCL, LIM, SIN, LON. That's what I'm thinking too. If they go for...Jump to post
Meters vs feet is an interesting speculation I was on a Piedmont flight into LGW (remember those?) where the first attempt/go around was absurdly high. I wondered at the time if the Piedmont pilots, with little or no experience outside the US, had assumed altitudes were given in meters. That's an i...Jump to post
Looks like two go-arounds after one another.. is there a possibility this could be blamed on something other than the crew?Jump to post
I can hardly wait to see ETOPS and what it'll do for sales in the Pacific. I suspect it's an untapped market there. Could the CS100/300 be a good 717 replacement for HA ? I mean just thinking of HA, they could cycle a CS between intra Hawaiian flying while at the same time send them to the west coa...Jump to post
Anyone with inside info about the alleged big cargo news from OSL tomorrow referred to on flyprat.no? Property development like ARN and CPH presented earlier this week or maybe a new freighter route? I'm not in the loop, but maybe they found investors for the new seafood terminal? Just speculation.Jump to post
Hi Fly may even increase the A380 fleet to 6 aircraft: https://www.airinsight.com/hi-fly-talks-a380-plans/ Dr. Paulo Mirpuri, president and CEO of Hi Fly in Lisbon discusses his company’s bold step in acquiring two ex-Singapore Airlines A380s. These aircraft will be deployed as wet leases to Hi Fly...Jump to post
Snip snip.. most interesting bits from United memo: Today we also announced significant changes to our Airbus A350 order, most notable of which is the timing of deliveries. We decided to defer these aircraft until 2022 to align with the replacement of our fleet of 55 Boeing 777-200ERs, which begin t...Jump to post
The article mentions 40-50 short and medium distance aircraft from Boeing or Airbus. So I'm hoping for some A320-series including a few A321LR. I agree with KiwiRob that the CSeries would be a great fit in Norway, but I don't think they'll go for another fleet type at this point.Jump to post
The A350 looks stunning in United livery!Jump to post
There will be lots of used A380 parts on the market shortly. Like I've said before, I believe that early build A380s heading to the scrapper is a good thing for the whole A380 ecosystem and the viability of operating A380s - not only for the legacy carriers, but for ad-hoc/charter outfits like HiFly...Jump to post
And Israel's priority is to continuously expand into other peoples land. Israel created the problem and Israel continues to feed the problem. So touche' to that. Are you Israeli or American?

Now HiFly can substitute 777, 747 and A380 flights with no loss of capacity (in most cases). And move half a battalion size of troops in one flight. Opens up a lot of new opportunities for them. I'm pretty sure they've been looking at all the missed opportunities and done some careful calculations b...Jump to post

This is great news! It will be very interesting to follow HiFly and their use of these aircraft. I've seen them flying for Norwegian quite a lot with their A340s. I wonder what configuration they'll have, the cheapest option would be to keep whatever configuration they have when acquired. Refitting ...Jump to post
The Privatair 737 has flown it's last flight on the CPH-BOS route, and SAS flew the A330 on the route yesterday.

It still amazes me that such odd route couples can gain these loadfactors. We're talking just O&D, there are very few connections on either side. Such long routes also takes up just about all of the aircraft's timetable.Jump to post
Clearly what happened is that someone heard "Oakland" and thought "Auckland" since the two sound familiar. SK launching OAK would make a ton of sense since their biggest competitor DY has multiple flights to OAK and SK's recent US expansion to LAX and MIA has really been to catc...Jump to post
The best solution would be a surprise attack by China from the North-west. Steamroll the entire country in a flash maneuver under the cover of military reinforcements, arrest the leadership and maintain law and order. Then slowly transition to a market economy, using the experience China has had the...Jump to post
No pre-emptive strike. Not necessary and too subject to unpredictable reactions elsewhere. Should North Korea actually attack though I would prefer to see a counter attack so overwhelming (read apocalyptic) that no one would ever dare think to try such a thing again. (hint Iran).

The main problem is the 10-20,000 artillery pieces hidden in caves north of the border. Upon initiation of any attack, these would be pulled out of their caves and start shelling Seoul, which would cause mass casualities. They would be shelling for a good while before they could be taken out by US /...Jump to post
New York City really shines at night, and it's a different atmosphere. I'd recommend staying a night or two in a hotel if anyone's considering this. A day trip will be very stressful.Jump to post
How do they plan to recoup these costs? Will they get a big discount on rent, slots, gates and everything else? Will they rent out these things to other airlines? I've read others talking about this, but I don't quite understand it.Jump to post

Maybe some armed Super Tucanos or T-6 Texan IIs would be sufficient. They would provide a unique contribution to NATO as well. Not good for air policing though.Jump to post

I've been far too optimistic about A380 orders in the past. I really want the type to survive. So while I'm very hopeful, I daren't predict any of this coming to fruition. The fact that Leahy is delaying his departure to try to secure these sales is a good sign though.Jump to post
What is driving the traffic there, is it all about tour groups to see the wildlife? Kenya and many other African nations are enjoying an economic boom.

Eyes were playing tricks. The prop-rotors are cross linked to to make sure both stay turning in an engine out situation.

I believe that in 50 years, things will have changed somewhat. I predict that Boeing and Airbus are still huge aircraft manufacturers, but I also believe Embraer and Comac will have grown much larger than they are today. Bombardier and Irkut I'm not so sure of.
