Really hopeful AS decides to keep at least the 321. It's a gorgeous plane, and looks amazing in Alaska colors! Would love to see Alaska upgrade Hawaii to the 321. There is also the fact that it's so much better than any Boeing offering in terms of capabilities, including the ability to accept conta...Jump to post

Delta's is 65, United's is 70. You don’t know anything about airline pilot schedules. No one.....unless they want too.....only gets the minimum.

No one at Boeing really wants sanctions any more than anyone in the US government (at least up until the end of 2016) wants to nuke North Korea. What they want is the threat, and this is what this article is all about, a threat to force negotiations to avoid the ultimate outcome. Even Boeing's lawy...Jump to post
Most layovers (almost all) are 8-70~ hours. Not enough to go much of anywhere. After you fly as much as a pilot does to the same destinations hundreds or thousands of times, the novelty wears off and all you want is a decent night of sleep. Disagree. Sometimes if I have 48+ hours layover, I even re...Jump to post
Really? So is the whole "International carrier Pilots being away from home a lot" a bit overstated? I've only seen some BA rosters on PPRUNE and they seemed to have 2-3 day layovers. They are away from home because they are flying the airplanes constantly, not vacationing in tourist desti...Jump to post
I applied for a Russian Visa in 2016 and it was the most difficult (and expensive) so far for me. In the end the visa alone cost about $400. Doesn't account for the risk of requiring all your travel to be booked prior to receiving your visa.
The country is crooked as hell. Once was enough for me.
3-4 day long layovers are mostly a thing of the past. Especially New York. Maybe on some places that are served 2-3 times per week. As far as I know, unless it is more than 8 hours time difference, the crews fly back the next day. No it isn't, it still happens all the time. I fly ATRs, and I have a...Jump to post

The HGW A321 is too much of a bandaid for a long term solution. The plane has plenty of power, but needs a new wing. Most A321CEO's cant climb above 29,000-31,000 initial at high weights. This hurts efficiency greatly. Loading up the belly with fuel isn't sustainable either, new wings should be desi...Jump to post

If a drone were ingested into the N2 (High pressure) section of a turbofan, it would most certainly lose power, if not fail.

Could you imagine the fleet if the USAF had an airline? In my experience, it would be on a loud, uncomfortable aircraft in an operation that pinched every penny. Imagine the cabin crew coming out to ask for volunteers to unload the bulk holds. Dang, now I'll have to delete this post to keep FR from...Jump to post
I am really curious to see the responses you get. The 737 still has steel cables for flight control inputs instead of fly by wire, although it has some fly by wire features like the spoilers. It also has a master caution system instead of EICAS. When it comes to actual performance, avionics, naviga...Jump to post

Had this been Boeing, A/net would treat it like a war crime.

Pilots are being "asked" aka told to take unpaid leave.
So suiting for a company that views its employees as indentured slaves.
Excuse me, but what does PHX have that could possibly attract a ME3 carrier?

Boeings has split the 777's original market between the 787 and 777X. If you operated 777's ultra long haul with low density cabins you would go 777-8's.

If there are 737s waiting to be assembled, that's not an engineering job. I'm sorry, but the large number of manufacturing engineers that work the production line would beg to disagree with you.

I'd argue that it actually increased competition. You now have at least 3 carriers with near-identical destination offerings from 95% of US airports with commercial service. Back in the days of the US6, it wasn't uncommon to have 1-2-3 airlines at a tiny airport, with the others left out because it...Jump to post
