If you really want to step up security in the United States, you'd better start prohibiting guns. That could save more than one hundred lives every day. Please keep this on-topic.

First off, you just joined today So? There's nothing wrong with someone who joins this website to share his opinion. and your first post has zero to do with aviation. So? There's nothing wrong with discussing the mental health of the person who piloted this aircraft. It looks to have played a major...Jump to post

He was a suicide pilot, they should have taken him out immediately. It is ridiculous that they let him go on. To me this sounds like a major screw up not just on the part of Alaskan, Horizon, SeaTac, but the Air Force as well. I want to go on record that whoever was on duty for ATC was a class act....Jump to post
Really baffled at how this has hardly been reported yet on Twitter and not at all on news networks. Maybe the media want to get the facts straight before reporting about what happened? Nowadays many people want instant satisfaction of their news hunger. There's nothing wrong with reading all about ...Jump to post
How would a costumer service agent know how to even start a modern twin engine turboprop? It's not like just pushing buttons or moving levers. Than how do you start it? I have heard it is precisely that, pushing buttons and moving levers. This looks so weird and it's also a huge security failure. L...Jump to post
I will also add a security factor, anybody can get on these trains without going through a metal detector and despite that you usually get a first class seat when you are on a flight ticket, you regularily see lowlife in the cars. Sometimes they are approached by the conductors and forced out at th...Jump to post

Over 10,000 aviation fans, boys, girls, mums, dads and grandmas too lined the perimeter fence at GLA for a one off Emirates A380 service in April 2014 to mark the tenth anniversary of an otherwise 777 service. I remember the first visit of an A380 to Düsseldorf Airport on 12 November 2006. A local ...Jump to post
A few questions as a European who is not very familiar with Dallas Love Field:
- What does the gate cap mean?
- What does "token service" mean?

They pay for you to do your job. By the letter.
The downside is the A330 can only realistically use 8 abreast seating. The extra foot in width in the 787 makes 9 abreast acceptable. But not for economy class passengers. I will always prefer 2-4-2 seating over 3-3-3. I go out of my way to book flights on aircraft with that configuration. It is ju...Jump to post
Also, who wouldn't want to see Jerusalem? I know a lot of people who don't want to travel to Jerusalem. In fact, the entire Middle East is off limits to them.

But even if your local airport is Amsterdam, this still doesn't make the choice for KLM obvious. After all, EasyJet, Transavia and Vueling also got a base at Amsterdam. It's just what you're looking for. EasyJet left me stranded at Amsterdam for three hours with zero staff available to explain what...Jump to post
Excuse me, but if I am not mistaken, mainline carriers did this years ago, and failed. Here are some examples: (...) But this time they are not setting up lower cost subsidiaries. They are just saying: "Pay more and get more." You have to decide for yourself if the extra money is worth it...Jump to post
Personally I prefer airlines that include food, drinks and entertainment in their ticket price. Budget airlines might be cheaper, but I don't like the fact that you have to pay all the time. Being from the Netherlands KLM is my home carrier. They can be more expensive than other airlines, but usuall...Jump to post

I did a search. But apparently not a good one. I didn't know Hawaiian wants to fly to Europe. I do know there are regular topics about why no airline operates from Europe to Hawaii. But maybe the business case is completely different going the other way. I don't know. I will try another search.Jump to post
Only reason I can see for Hawaiian going to the 787 is because they both see a use for all three models in the fleet and because they want to start non-stop services to Europe. Why would Hawaiian want to fly to Europe? I believe the question "Why no direct flights from Europe to Hawaii?" ...Jump to post
Is there any airport, US that is worse than LAX for entering customs? It is a 3rd world experience; very inefficient. Do you people even understand how insane you sound sometimes?

I had my first experience onboard a CityJet CRJ-900 in SAS colors yesterday. It was EI-FPB. I was pleasantly surprised.

Y is no longer flyable on any airline for routes 2hr+ except for JAL's 8 abreast 787, which is priced high enough you might as well fly in J.
