Is this seperate from the previous order for 20+30?Jump to post
There are a million rumors, but yet nothing as good as the current one. QF and AC pulled it off, so I hope LH does, because their current branding is beautiful. Agree, that AC did a good job, but they went a little more retro-chic...if anything, they went back a couple decades to a time when the cu...Jump to post

All the people who are complaining about the 8-hour narrowbody flights are clearly clueless in regards to how aviation works. It depends on the airline, not the aircraft. For example, if PA chooses to install lie-flat J seats and 32-inch-pitched Y seats with IFE then I would actually prefer it to th...Jump to post
I mean, I'm 10000% in for an all-electric aircraft future just 20 years from now, but I'd wait until one was certified before going ahead with this.Jump to post
Great news! I can't wait for the first pictures of the finished terminal. And they really should expand. PAE would make a great secondary airport.Jump to post
That flight ended on quite a cliffhanger.
I'll escort myself out.
Like mentioned, that title has been there since IAH-AKL.Jump to post
It's more likely they won't, but from all upcoming 787 operators they are the most likely. They are quite invested in their Economy Class comfort, quite apparent from the fact they kept 9-abreast in their 777's after the retrofit. I really doubt it, but it would be great, and would also give them an...Jump to post
Goodbye VX. You will be missed.Jump to post
LH has the 779 on order (but that's arguably in a different class, so maybe), CI's 77W's are brand new, and I can't see SAA buying any plane right now. I'd say IB is the most likely because of the A340-600 fleet they have no replacement planned for.Jump to post
I could see them pulling a VN and ordering both 789's and 359's. The 789 is pretty much the same size as the A340-300, and is has the range, which the A330-900neo doesn't. The A350 would be the ideal plane for expansion. They put those on the busiest routes thus allowing the 789 to fly to even more ...Jump to post
So 20-40 787's and 20-25 A350's? We're talking anywhere in between 40 and 65 completely new widebodies. That's quite the expansion.
Also, I'm not a person who complains about Business Class (since I'm a coach guy) but the new planes would be the perfect opportunity for a new Business Class for TK.
Yeah, right about when Baltia starts flying LHR-AKL with the Fokker 130 Doubtful The A350-900 is a direct replacement of the A340-300 The A350-900R directly replaces the A340-500 The A350-1000 directly replaces the A340-600 Yes, but apparently nonne of the a350 Versions has the same seating capacity...Jump to post
I just expect two A380's to collide right above a densely-populated city and crash on top of it on December 31st at 23:59:59. And if that does happen I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING But yeah, I've said it myself and heard many others say it: this is the best year for aviation. Barely any major crashes and ve...Jump to post
To all those who blame the lady, first of all at least say sorry or sth before that, and second, the possibility of eyesight problems doesn't occur to you at all? In which case the airline can be partly blamed. Even though I disagree with the lawsuit this could've been eyesight related. My condolenc...Jump to post
Talking about intercontinental/long-haul, Greece has the demand, but airlines just prefer more profitable destinations. Even though Greece is a money machine in the summer, for the rest of the year not so much. But now it's coming back. EK has a daily 777 to EWR and Scoot has a 4x weekly to SIN, bot...Jump to post
So next time they should manipulate the weather? And expansion hasn't proven to be a problem for them the rest of the year, why would that change now? Their on-time performance, as a few others have said, is quite good. But when your base is up there, you can't expect 24/7 on-time. Unless you prefer...Jump to post
The person had a ticket on the same route on another airline and posed no security risk. They should've let them stay and not delay a flight by several hours. Instead, just sort things out in TokyoJump to post
Like Jordan and zeke have already pointed out, spatial disorientation is the cause of the majority of plane crashes.Jump to post
According to Wiki (yes I know not the best source but still) Aegean is due to take 2 additional A321's. Is that actually true or is Wiki going crazy again? Aegean is also supposed to announce a new order for either the neo or MAX by the end of the year, but I doubt that'll happen.Jump to post
Umm, there are way less airlines with 6-abreast than 4-abreast in Business Class. And the only 8-abreast 787 operator is JAL, which as we know runs their planes like charity (not that I'm complaining). Well quite a number of airlines have 6 abreast business class on the 787. Eg. United, Ethiopian, ...Jump to post
Why didn't they put F in? Also if the config above is true, then it's quite the spacious config! I don't know why no First, but here is the seat layout map. http://www.koreanair.com/global/en/traveling/aircraft-info/details.html?fleetCode=cs300 It is a 36 inch pitch in Premium Economy and 32 inch i...Jump to post

As expected! Congrats to both parties! Are these -8s or -10s? In the deal in Dubai (225 orders) they said at least 50 were -10's. Pretty sure they also talked about the -9, which I'm sure Boeing would be happy about. Not sure if that got through, but if I were to guess I'd say 125+50 MAX 8's and 10...Jump to post

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned these: Airbus basically custom-made the A350-900ULR for SQ after they requested it. (A and B were also willing to stretch their planes for them, like the A350-8000 and 777-10X) Pretty sure the 787-3 was basically custom-made for the Japanese, like the 747-100SR and...Jump to post
With today's in ATL, and the one in MIA a while back, I was wondering how can a major international airport just lose all power? Do they not have backups? Because that's just stupid. Unless there was a major problem I don't see how regular and backup power can just fail.Jump to post
The whole story about American planes is a pile of you-know-what. End of argument. Whether an airline chooses one plane or another doesn't depend on the country of origin, but on if they can use it profitably, or if they can get more out of it than the competition. Hence the DL A321neo order, the U...Jump to post

Apparently failed to take off, sure looks bad. At least there were no fatalities. Operator is West Wind.
