So, we see that if about 10.000nm air range is required going west against the prevailing winds then 300 passengers is clearly out of the question for either plane. Even 200 passengers seems to be a stretch but if any plane can do that is must be the B778. But the route will not be flown westbound,...Jump to post

An investigation into a Beech King Air crash near AEY airport in Iceland relied partially on video evidence. The video was not from a spotter, it was from on-board video cameras in a drag racer. http://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20130805-0 http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=0c6_1389025127Jump to post
I am wondering what this thread would look like if a 777 was blown out of the sky by a laptop modified to be a bomb and there was prior intelligence that was dismissed. Do you think we would be talking about lost tourism dollars? Just saying. You need to circle back to the original threat, to make ...Jump to post

Would love to be a fly on the wall as to what the 'plus' is (also the plus plus in fact).I personally cannot believe it's about extra range as there is simply no place/space to put it.They have to leave one cargo hold available.I also feel that their single bogey MLG at 97T must be getting very clo...Jump to post

I'm surprised Iran hasn't been more Boeing centric with it's orders. It would go a long way with a white house administration hanging it's hat on the job market. The reason is the way Boeing treated them during the sanctions. No maintenance documentation, extreme greed when pricing parts allowed to...Jump to post
From Flightglobal article: The airline is being coy over the identity of the seventh aircraft, however. It states only that it will release details in a few weeks’ time. Any guesses? A350? A321NEO LR? In the Icelandic press release it says 2x A321CEO direct from Airbus and 1x A321NEO leased from Ai...Jump to post
I don't understand why stopping in SNN for pre-clearence is better than a nonstop. Does stopping in SNN, deplaning, processing customs, and then re-boarding save any time over just having a non-stop flight and processing customs in JFK? Customs in JFK isn't fun, but I'd rather do that than have an ...Jump to post

Why would FR benefit from feeding into competitor's flights? I don't get it It is not about every flight. If Norwegian is flying a TATL flight to an airport with a FR base there would be an interline agreement for connections at that airport. Norwegian TATL flights feed passengers into FR short hau...Jump to post
Just like Iceland Air and WOW utilize their KEF hub, so does AC use their YYZ hub.

Looking at todays flights it looks like they are an aircraft down for whatever reason, as DUB is nearly 12 hours late. WW often sub in carriers to help.

These Q 400 of AIR ICELAND are already 15 years old frames originally from SAS, their Q 200 are still much older, up 25 years old.

I guess the ABZ route has been fairly successful then if they are willing to explore more options on the Q400.
