Thanks both FlyHappy and sabby for your input.

I was just looking at their route map the other day on my LHR-AMS flight, and it's always a shock to see how few long haul destinations BA serves outside North America. Even many former colonies aren't served. AF does a much better job covering those. Yes its shocking, I remember the good ole days ...Jump to post
A route I had suggested in the JV a while back. Makes perfect sense for Northeast transfer passengers without using ATL or JFK. I also wonder if this might end up seeing one of the A388 frequencies at JFK go down to a B748 or a B77W. JFK is a premium route for them, and sometimes hard to find F and...Jump to post

Japan to Hawaii isn't exactly bottom of barrels It largely is for airlines.

How would an engine failure/explosion provoke such a loss of control on an airliner? I would say that rather than an engine, it´s the left MLG that broke.

AA bought 16 741's and very quickly converted some to freighters and sold others. They did not have large TPAC hubs like NW and UA (NRT) and were more focused domestically, so the 74x was way too much plane. As they grew they went in with the DC-10. By the time the DC-10 reached end of life, the 77...Jump to post
