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

While looking at JFK on FR24 from about midnight to 6am EST all B6 aircraft have their transponders on while no other airline does during those hours. Any reason for this? Truly, this is not the case. Was the ATC feed down? Living in the JFKarea and frequently being on FR24, this is a rather common...Jump to post

I will always select a widebody over a narrowbody if the price is equal. Who doesn't like high ceilings and open space?! If you don't operate this way, you are just playing into the hands of the airline bean counters who would fly the 737 to China if they could find a way. I hear what you're saying...Jump to post
Why are you assuming that 4 engines would "increase the safety margin"... they don't. There's no mathematical evidence of that, despite what you're assuming to be a common sense conclusion. So you are saying more redundancy doesn't increase the safety margin? What about the number of hydr...Jump to post
So am I right in concluding that if we strapped two more engines on a 737, you'd fly on it to Hawaii?Jump to post

I know most of you probably think the Spirit livery is ugly, I kind of like it. It fits their brand very well.

The pilots ultimately diverted rather than land. Everyone eventually got to MSY in one piece.
Ugh. Until today.
You people are so sensitive! Listen to you all critiquing these passengers, feeling threatened! It was surely a miserable experience. Why not admit that it must have really sucked and just move on with life? Unpleasant? sure. no question. but life threatening? not even close. I think passengers sho...Jump to post
In my years of flying, I've had some doozy landings. It's even worse when you are in the rear jump seats and can't see out side. Back in my early days, we had an aborted landing in DCA on a 757 where we actually touched down but bounced and the pilots went around. The pilots never intended to touch...Jump to post

Interesting on the decision using past A345 registrations that they are replacing. Wonder why they are starting with -SGE when the A345s were 9V-SGA to 9V-SGE. You'd think they would use -SGA or carry on and use -SGF? Their first two B78Xs are registered 9V-SCA/9V-SCB, which were previously used fo...Jump to post
I see the same designation while booking with Orbitz, where i’ve seen lufthansa and Finnair a320s and 321s say sharklets next to them. I just thought it was cool to know and didn’t really make a difference. Besides, i didn’t think i was going to count on the aircraft having sharklets based on what O...Jump to post
Never mind the fact that VX has never operated A330s, hence the A330 in the promo.Jump to post

I hate this RR engine style appearance. I love it, the A330 with RR engines is one of the most beautifull airliners in my opinion Greetings from Beagá Well, as an A330 lover I thing the RR engines style kills the design and makes the A330 looks "weaker", see the difference: Anyway, it's j...Jump to post
Even if United is in the wrong, the whiny attitude of passenger and then making a big deal about this on social media makes me want to side with UnitedJump to post
I'm surprised we don't see the A321 on LGA-ATL more often to be honest. It's a mix of A320s and 739s for the most part. I'm surprised we don't see any A321s on JFK-ATL I agree. JFK-ATL is also mostly a mix of 738/9 and A319/A320 with the random 757 thrown in. I thought LGA ATL became all 739s a whi...Jump to post
I mean he is no aviation analyst, but I don't have a problem with what he does. He was just showing his passion for aviation when some news network decided to call him an analyst and it snowballed from there. Otherwise, he really is just passionate about aviation, and it shows.Jump to post
So, it seems that in the end the livery will indeed feature the "LH yellow", in the title font, correct? Or was this just some one-time gimmick for the unveiling? http://www.airliners.net/photo/Lufthansa/Boeing-747-830/4841333 http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/3/3/3/4841333.jp...Jump to post
