The publically available numbers you've posted would suggest that the 787 is superior (although it's fairly marginal- they are similar numbers to A320 Vs 738 - both of which have a roughly 50/50 share). Even the 330ceo did a good job in sales contests against the 787. The neo has missed a major ord...Jump to post

I was watching a documentary " A day in the life" covering an airline pilot. He was working for Candian airlines back in 1993, and it surprised to know that there was a regulation to put oxygen mask on whenever the other pilot left the cockpit at cruise altitude. It got me thinking : 1- Wa...Jump to post

From my experience, I have checked luggage for 2 different reservations in 2 different airlines. However, in your case, if you are not allowed a checked-in luggage on the first leg, I highly doubt that they would allow it .. If you miss the connection, you are on your ownJump to post

So, There are two sides to this argument .. One is supported by hard numbers from an available source ..

Hi everyone, I am about to do a booking for a friend as in the image below.

The drama is just insane these days
The captain might have no business to be involved, but to ignore the obscene behavior by the passengers and turn the spotlight into the captain who clearly just wanted to break up the fight is nothing short of ridiculous
I guess its cheaper for them to sit out on the tarmac than at the gate and it seems that delays are not worked in to the system this way, I believe the bigger issue in this circumstance is gate occupation rather than cost. With one runway serviceable, priority will be given to arrivals. So, delayed...Jump to post
I watched both videos, and despite whether or not the passenger was in the wrong , the agents handled the situation extremely well. This might be an unpopular opinion, but I believe the man should've cooperated and left the plane. If you want to protest an unfair policy, do not do it on the plane an...Jump to post
I am no expert by any mean, but these are my observations: 1- The domestic airline industry in the US is very strong, and with all the recent mergers, and exclusive routes, running the airline as efficient and profitable as possible comes at a much higher priority than taking care of a good customer...Jump to post
Interesting that DXB is number three in terms of passengers but doesn't feature in the top twenty airports in terms of movements. Nothing to do with the Emirates fleet of A380s and 777s dominating movements at the airport I suppose. :-) Shhhhh, they fly them empty or are parked all the time .. What...Jump to post

I am not sure if this has been reported in here :
The airline, owned by United Continental Holdings Inc (UAL.N), said it would make sure crews traveling on their aircraft are booked into seats at least 60 minutes before departure.
What's your source of information that MH has a policy of avoiding Pakistani And Afghani Airspace?????
I checked the history of their past days routes and they flew there multiple times this month !
This video gave me an excellent insight into the practice of overbooking. Recommended
As much we, aviation enthusiasts, enjoy these back and forths. I can't help but notice that there is a lot of deceiving in their public statement.

I'd suggest it means a lot more than that; if it were just those six countries, it would not be as much as a 35% (let's face it, EK never flew to Mogadishu and doesn't fly to Yemen anymore); I think Arab travellers are just deciding that US travel is not for them while The Donald is in charge.

I hope they use a wider fuselage instead of a further stretch. With the Beluga XL being a meter wider, that easily adds another row front-to-back.

Why not send one from DXB? the difference in distance doesn't justify creating another problem in BOS!!!
