Hello A.net, I don't know how I never noticed this, but does the A320 not have landing lights mounted at the leading edge of the wings like Boeing or all other Airbus aircraft? Does it even have them, and if so, where are they mounted? I'm pretty sure this is a requirement for all civil aircraft whi...Jump to post
With the recent opening of the 747 exhibit for Ship 6301 of Delta at ATL, that got me wondering: what is United's plan for the 747's post retirement, more specifically, are any planned to head to a museum? All contributions appreciated, thank you.
Kudos to them for turning lemons into lemonade!
On a side note, I noticed on Twitter that RJ is now offering baggage wrapping as a deterrent to electronics theft, nice gesture, didn't think of that myself!

Just saw this on flightaware:

Most likely a one-off sub, but could also be the start of an unexpected seasonal change...
Either way, those were some really lucky pax, hoping an A.netter was on that flight and does a TR!
Still no AS A320 rendering? C'mon AS, throw us A.netters a bone! We want to see "Proudly all Boeing" written on an AirbusJump to post

Your friends might be having some fun with an early April Fool's joke
In all seriousness, the timing could not be more "interesting" if it is indeed the case.
EDIT: May 1, not April 1st my bad.

Even more interesting are routes other than EWR-SFO: N2331U IAD-SFO IAD-SFO!?! Yep, saw N2331U at the end of the D concourse yesterday. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/xdQTxuErSBGd6mKNwctadgkBZP6vLYgaE3TnsqH16BeqSaIiwjn5qasqdbGaTV0v0so_K0BHdiw8wAnkDwZjSayyGuJP19wYdsykXTXyjxDpP7RJCatUVOQuDzD5ov0or...Jump to post
Even more interesting are routes other than EWR-SFO: N2331U IAD-SFO/ORD-SFO/EWR-SFO N2332U EWR-SFO N2333U ORD-EWR It looks like N2333U has consistently been flying ORD-EWR-ORD for at least 4 days, so it is most likely the aircraft you saw. So in theory, you can currently fly the UA 77W on: EWR-SFO E...Jump to post
One side effect of this ban. this will reduce the flow of ME3 trip reports. Yeah, lot of people love using big cameras with zoom and wide angles for TR's, which will be useless now. I have a feeling that permitted smartphones with some type of zoom/wide angle lenses like the iPhone 7 Plus will soon...Jump to post
SOMEBODY, PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE
This thread is at 269 replies and the title is still RJ!?! It is well established that RJ did not independently decide to ban electronics!

Perhaps those intelligence reports suggest that there might be some employees assisting the terrorist in certain airports? Like the poster above said, the ban isn't really on airlines.

This is timely, from EK: https://youtu.be/as6ZEuo0IrE Give whoever put that together a raise, because that's about as good a PR move as they could make under the circumstances.

A lot of companies are utilizing the cloud more and more. This should negate the effect of needing "your" laptop. This is the second dumbest thing I've read on this topic today. There is a internet cafe in Dubai or Doha. Go there and do some work on your "cloud". Glad to see tha...Jump to post
I think part of the problem that many legacy airlines fail to understand is that people pay more to fly them becuase they are legacy; if they wanted to buy a cheaper ticket, they would buy from a LCC. BA is making the classic mistake of eliminating any differentiation between itself and Ryanair, thu...Jump to post
Hello A.net, With the uncertainty that has been unleashed in the form of subsidy allegations, travel bans, and electronic restrictions, I think it is safe to say that the next few years will determine whether the ME3 will become a victim of a decline initiated not by the market or financial failure,...Jump to post
The dumb part about all of this is, if there was a credible threat, wouldn't the "badguys" just switch airlines since the ban is public now? Yep and I think that's why there upset with RJ for letting the cat out of the bag. RJ forced their hand on coming forward with it now, so the ban wi...Jump to post

One major issue with Song (and the ilk) was that business fliers wanted the standard Delta experience but that was not an options on some routes. Some people DO fly to Orlando for business.

No, IAH does not have slots. But depending on the proposed schedule, it very well may have to do with the ability to handle the flight at Terminal D. There is no room at all during the peak times from around 1pm to 6pm. I would think any slot issues would be on the Shanghai end. Yes, D is very busy...Jump to post
I got the no window twice, both on a DL MD-90 on ATL-TPA. It's really awful and I always wonder what the point is, I'm sure there are some folks on here who could enlighten us as to why.Jump to post
Flew through IAH yesterday. I was under the impression that C was open, but it is not.

The timing of this thread is perfect for me.

Kudos to IAH! I have no idea how IAH attracts so many airlines!?! I know the oil is there, but there is no comparison between IAH and DFW just a few hours north!

I think CX has to start taking more risks, particularly with its route network. In the US, EK has thrown a lot of stuff at the wall, some of it stuck and others didn't. They need to strengthen their JV/Oneworld partners and leverage it to start new routes. IMHO, CX is way too conservative in this re...Jump to post
Wouldn't it have been better if they used the old ATC tower itself as the observation deck?

For how much time was the bizjet diving? ie. How many ft/min? This reminds me of China Airlines flight 006, although that plunged 30,000 feet.

Hardly. They got rid of an old/obsolete model, for a more modern aircraft that enables a nonstop.
