Though I'm only a frequent flyer and have no aviation background - other than being a million miler - I have trouble with this film clip appearing on a public social media channel. Even if this video was taken to protect the crew from eventual libility, it should *never* have appeared on YouTube. T...Jump to post
Air Canada 737MAX8 C-GEHI on a test flight, PAE-BFI https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DxqO6VRU8AIwFK2?format=jpg https://twitter.com/mattcawby/status/1088339407348723713?s=20 So here I am, enjoying a bunch of airplane pics and I come across this terrible paint job. Damn. The committee that dreamed this l...Jump to post
Wait wait wait. Lots of assumptions in the original post, we are not MDs and even if we are we haven't seen the pan nor assisted to the scene. Maybe the aircraft toilets were not big enough to let him do everything by himself (in comparison to those of the airport). Perhaps this person requires som...Jump to post
Can someone post a photo of the lavatory....I can't seem to find it https://airwaysmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/IMG_8687.jpg I swear I saw a picture of a DL A220 Lav with a window in it. I wish I could find that picture. Wow, that is one fancy lav, and a big one at that especially when compar...Jump to post
Are you suggesting that a pilot with 6,000 hours wouldn't know the difference between what it feels like when his aircraft is climbing, vs. when it's pointed straight at the ground? If they're in clouds with no visual reference and instrument failure, how would anybody be able to tell up from down?...Jump to post
Possible video from inside the aircraft before crash https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=aVWfd_1540802111 How does one find the camera or the device that recorded the video but not the plane.

Makes me wonder if there is something to do with the somewhat new aircraft type, knowing the MAX has newer instrumentation than the NG models. Perhaps crew were not used to the new instruments in the MAX, especially with the airline's poor track record in training, resulting in chaos and confusion ...Jump to post

For Alitalia, Linate to Rome is a pretty important one, as is Rome to JFK, since they have 3 flights between the two cities per day.Jump to post
Latest update on B-KPB is that it is going to Norwind Airlines to be VP-BJPJump to post
B-KPB has been flown to XMN for what I presume will be its retirment from the CX fleet.

I thought it was used to designate the A321LR but i didn't know BA ordred LR so i'm in doubt.
Either a publicity stunt or a fake photo (or both). I realize Cathay themselves have shared this photo, which makes it just seem more like one of those two things to me. Are there other photos from different angles, dates and airports showing this? Nah, there’s people on the ground in Hong Kong who...Jump to post
They could have held the names of the Virgin Jets. I mean it does not do much harm and maintains some sort of employee engagement. Are they ripping out all the Panasonic IFE also? Such a shame seeing this awesome carrier ripped to shreds, not for the better I might add. They indeed are ripping out ...Jump to post
Just remember VX had a pay to use premium cabin model like B6. AS has like the rest of the legacies, a upgrade to use premium cabin model. B6 has been highly critical of that model and it’s worth a read. By the way, what uniform are the VX Cabin Crew wearing? Has anyone flown the AS Airbus fleet re...Jump to post
707-320C : Range 5000 Nm it's a plain narrowbody, isnt'it ?
DC8 in excess of 5000 Nm also and closer to 6000 Nm indeed
VC10 in excess of 5000 Nm
Nothing totally new !
Folks, stranger things have happened. While I believe the probability of staying with airbus is quite high, I’d love for them to pick up 737’s on their next order. The 737-10MAX could make a lot of sense for them. Why...Just why? That would be like choosing a 65 year old woman with tons of plastic ...Jump to post

Geez, what's with everyone stealing regional jets these days? I mean, if you're going to do something as idiotic as steal a commercial plane at least go all in and grab something cool like an A380 or 787. . Would one person be able to take off and fly an A380 ? It would be incredibly hard to do so,...Jump to post
Full ATC recording of flight, includes takeoff.
I was hoping for A360-100 and A360-300. It would send a signal that it was fully part of the Airbus narrowbody line-up. But I guess they chose A220 because it doesn't really have commonality with the rest, and it's also smaller. A4XX is used for military aircraft. Then why not A500 or A520? If the ...Jump to post
Nice gesture, and some nice PR. How sweet.Jump to post
I once flew on an AA 777-200 in a 2-5-2 config, back before the retrofits. Actually, some people prefer the 2-5-2 config over 3-3-3 due to the philosophy that there's only one person per row (middle seat) in 2-5-2 that needs to crawl over two people to get to the aisle, while there's 2 seats (two wi...Jump to post
Glad to hear of this development. Unbelievably ugly livery. In my opinion it is a nice livery, my problem with it is that it screams "Qatar Airways". There is not Italian feel to the livery. If they are trying to replace Alitalia as the flag carrier, I think the livery should remind peopl...Jump to post

Alitalia decides to introduce new uniforms despite its bankruptcy.
Also, he says A-Three-Three-Zero or A-three-hundred-and thirty and the likes of that, and it makes it difficult for me to watch. I don't know why, but that bugs the hell out of me too. Everytime I fly British Airways and the pilot says "Welcome aboard this Airbus three one nine" I just ha...Jump to post
How reputable/reliable is DJ's Aviation as a source? I have tried to watch one of his videos on the 787 before, but found it so amateurish and full of subjective opinion it was unwatchable - it felt, to me, like something an overenthusiastic kid put together in his bedroom. He certainly needs coach...Jump to post
I have my money on AF. Assumption is that they are willing try to bring Joon and AF closer to make it more clear that Joon is part of AF, sort of like what CX did with KA. The blue stripe almost goes through the door in the same exact spot as on the Joon a340, but that may just be a coincidence.Jump to post
I would think that FRA would have a pretty high percentageJump to post
Firmly disagree with you on AA. I go thru DFW often and the new paint job looks so much better than the old. Prior to rebranding, The new 738s were half gray paint on the undersides - the silver birds were dying. I am glad AA chose a bolder change, vs some lame halfassed effort like United. Yes it ...Jump to post
You’d get a kick out of Virgin Atlantic’s registrations (G-VSXY), or WOW air’s (TF-MOM, -DAD, -BRO...), or one of my favorites, Corsair’s F-HSEX, an appropriately named former 747 that made plenty of trips down to SXM.Jump to post
