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

Wondering why a global superpower, the US, can't seem to match the service of other foreign carriers. -High profits/aging fleets -Lack of or outdated wifi/IFE -Haggard/rude flight crews in very casual attire -Lackluster meal service if any -Reduced seat pitch -Inferior First/Biz class cabins I don'...Jump to post
Great trip report! It's weird that we can now classify 2007 as "vintage" and "a blast from the past". I guess back then the A340 and 747 weren't anything all that special, now it seems like they're slowly becoming a rarity. I bet one day I'll be talking to my grand-kids about fl...Jump to post

I belive more or less any A320 family equipped with the same basic type of engine, in this case CFM56-5B, have interchangeable engines as generally the only difference is software that essentially governs the engine to a certain rating. The engines take the most wear and tear when used on the A321 ...Jump to post
It's like AC's newest A321 which was delivered with chevron equipped engines, but now one of the engines has made its way to a Rouge A319 so both planes are flying with one engine that has chevrons and one that doesn't so I guess technically one engine is louder than the other. WHAT? They swapped a...Jump to post
I would say that VHHH/HKG isn't too bad to transfer around. After you get cleared into airside, mostly everything is under the same roof, so it means that you will not have to run from one terminal to another. However, VHHH is quite big, and with their current expansion, it may now be necessary for ...Jump to post
How come there is no engine swirl on some engines of the GEnx versions of the 787 and 747-8? http://www.airliners.net/photo/Air-Canada/Boeing-787-8-Dreamliner/4376045/L?qsp=eJwtjDEOwkAMBP/imgaIiJQOPgAFH7B8KzjpSE62C6Iof49zSre7o52FZBodf3/PFTSQgVW%2BdKLKyj%2BjYSHOWvK4w6679IFsUn/M0RM77iKojnTsT03QHcGkWT5...Jump to post
While I can't say for sure, many Chinese airports are expanding and becoming larger and larger. There is the possibility for many new hubs since airports and airlines are expanding so fast in China. Such airports can be Shenzhen, Xiamen, Qingdao, and Dalian looks like it is getting a new airport fro...Jump to post
I quite like the last few liveries on their website. This is already so much better than what some other Chinese carriers do, *koff koff* China EasternJump to post
while I can't comment on who was right and who was wrong, I will say that the dad handled the situation extremely calmlyJump to post

if you are talking about the plane from which the photo is taken, it seems to be an a330, as the winglet is from the 330/340 family and there is no break in the slats for the outboard engine mounting. If you are referring to the other plane in the air, it looks like a 320 family aircraft, but I am n...Jump to post
