Another huge win for the Dreamliner coming? I kinda hope not. TBH I really get sick of the 787. Too many of them flying around and they're way too over hyped. I've been on them heaps of times and don't really notice a difference between them and other aircraft, or anything they've been advertising ...Jump to post
Same thing happened to me on a Jetstar 787 a couple of years ago. The pilots were having trouble with trim and navigation systems. They announced that they would restart the aircraft. Let's just say 787s are not fun after they restart. We were on board at the gate for 5 hours after....Jump to post
I'm questioning why they made the video on the A380? https://www.facebook.com/PakistanIntAirlines/videos/2027722623923419/ And paying which royalties for commercial usage? Or have they photoshopped it enough to make a difference? Or has HiFly anything to comment on this? HiFly operating A380s for P...Jump to post
Congrats to AA for the order, although I kinda wish I would have got to see their livery in the A350 or A330neo.Jump to post
Aircraft has had its engines fitted.
People are saying that QF doesn't want a specialist aircraft. Wouldn't that mean the A350-900 ULR is the best option? It can be reverted back to a standard -900 if need be, thus increasing resale value. ULR frames tend to sell for much lower prices one they're in the yard. The 778 would just end up ...Jump to post
New thread about the LR and 11 hour flight
Sorry if this has been posted. I know its already in the A320neo production thread.
So the A321LR just flew 11 hours non stop from Seychelles to Toulouse.... That's amazing.
The fact that there would only be artificial light, possibly interesting exit systems and sweaty gym members all crowded into a small space baffles me.What about maintenance access to electrical systems. Hydraulic noise, landing gear noise on landing, constant thumping on the ceiling from people wal...Jump to post
Looks like Joyce has given up on the idea of a full cargo load over his required distances. He is now suggesting the unused cargo space could be used for passenger needs during an ULH flight. https://www.theage.com.au/business/companies/cargo-class-qantas-ceo-reveals-out-there-options-for-super-lon...Jump to post

Hi everyone, Sorry if this is in the wrong thread. Ever since Qatar took delivery of their beautiful A350-1000, I've been looking for a takeoff video that has been captured from the interior from in front of the engine. Why? Well I want to know whether there is a major sound difference between the T...Jump to post

I'm really hoping Boeing doesn't win an order. I usually don't care who gets what but when Boeing is selling planes for absurd prices to the point where it's almost dumping them I can't help but feel sorry for Airbus. They lost John Leahy and now they have to regain their strength and I just don't t...Jump to post
24 not 240? Proof JL has indeed left the building :):) Well to be honest I can sort of feel the emptiness and awkward silence in Airbus' offices now that JL has left. Obviously I'm sure they're fine however I can't seem to avoid the fact that they might be struggling a bit with what to do... Anyway...Jump to post
God damn I'm sorry to anyone that likes this aircraft but in my opinion:
1. It looks ugly AF
2. No way in the world you'd get me to fly on it.
My friend flew in one once and he looked shell shocked after he had got off. Words from his mouth "I'd rather fly a bird turd than this bird"....

Considering RR has been the engine choice for all of EKs recent A380s and all of BAs A380s, this could be very good news for RR and if an order is signed then we might see a potential PIP.Jump to post
Instead of debating where and why they landed shouldn't we be focusing on the fact that there was an engine failure and the flight ended with no other events?Jump to post
