I've received my extra pieces of it, and all I can say is that May 29 can't come fast enough. The passport plum did take some getting used to, but I definitely understand why the powers that be in ATL chose that color. Not only does it compliment multiple skin tones, it clearly stands out among the ...Jump to post
I vaguely recall that plane with the blue stripe the last time I was at MGM Studios (aka Hollywood Studios). I haven't been there in years though, and likely wouldn't be back anytime soon as I've had more than my fill of the place.Jump to post
JV or not, the fact the KE hasn't started BOS-ICN in the past few years when BOS was experiencing this growth is a little bit of a head-scratcher to me. I'd love to see one of their 789s there someday. (Though for the record, I wouldn't mind an extra ICN flight out of my home airport as much as some...Jump to post
https://www.flightradar24.com/AFR378/10d6050a F-HRBB is currently en route as the inaugural AF 789 service to DTW. Current ETA is 18:23. I would love to see the 787 be a regular here. RJ flies it in twice every week. There will be 2 787's on property at the same time today. True, but again RJ is on...Jump to post

I'm absolutely amazed that despite the numerous opportunities possible, this seemingly wasn't even addressed and nipped in the bud before the boarding door closed! I feel horrible for the dog owner. My dog was absolutely terrified of even a five-minute drive around the corner to Petsmart. I can't ev...Jump to post
What about a completely new market: US West Coast non-stop to Sapporo (Hokkaido)? It's a popular vacation spot year-round. For as much as I love Hokkaido (was an exchange student there for a year) and would be beyond thrilled to see something like 3x weekly SEA-CTS on a DL 76W, I don't see it happe...Jump to post
See that airport a little to the right that some complain is being deprived of its rightful status from the powers that be in Atlanta? Yeah, that's where all those 752s and 739s are flying over GRR to get to from SLC. In other words, why offer it when DTW is about a 30-minute flight away with a very...Jump to post
A case can be made for NGO imo. Lots of Toyota executives on that flight as well. Heck, in DTW they have several Japanese agents who -in addition to the mundane tasks of a gate agent - are assigned to meet people who pay extra for their ticket to be escorted through customs. I've seen it with NRT as...Jump to post
As an enthusiast, just about any new plane would get me excited. Otherwise, I'd have to say... Boeing 747. To me, it always meant I was going somewhere far both geographically and culturally from what I considered home. In one case, it was going somewhere that already felt like home to me for the fi...Jump to post
The last time I visited Narita, it was not uncommon to see several A380s serving NRT from the likes of AF, LH, and SQ among others. Now I only saw three when I was there a few weeks ago spotting with a local a.netter. I'm not sure, but I don't think HND will be able to handle multiple A380s. Someone...Jump to post
Late in the handover/acceptance process of this particular aircraft an issue showed up again with the electrically actuated lavatory seat levelling mechanism. Improper adjustment of this device may cause injuries to persons seated when using the lavatory, particularly if the aircraft is encounterin...Jump to post
What next, an emotional support jellyfish?
Don't get me wrong I am a dog person, but this whole emotional support stuff has largely gone off the rails. I could've sworn I heard rumors of an emotional support tarantula at one point.
N503DN flew the inaugural DTW-PEK route today. It will become a daily A359 on 23 February.
It was a bit tricky memorizing all the places I've been. I may need to keep a word file of this or something to help keep track.

I read somewhere that the delivery flight is to GMP, perhaps indicating it will be doing some domestic runs and/or markets into China and Japan.Jump to post
I'd say Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, but that is really an arcade at the end of the day MARVIN'S IS STILL THERE??? I dunno why this should make me so happy; it's not as if I'm likely to ever visit it again, but I'm glad to know it's survived the years since I was a kid. The founder did pas...Jump to post
How many A321CEOs are still to be delivered for DL?

Now, who said the Lions had a horrible defensive lineup?
This is where it gets a little hairy - if a flight sustains even a 1 min delay, some entity will be tagged and held responsible for that delay. This code (at least in the hub stations) is discussed ad nauseam, often with management intervention, to ensure that the code is assigned to the "righ...Jump to post

I had one F/A purser on a flight to SLC over a year ago. Very junior, but obviously loved hearing the sound of his own voice.

Very interesting thread. This airline was based in Okinawa if I recall correctly. I don't recall the exact story, but I think the 767 in question went to Skymark. It is a unique livery that I do like. An earlier thread on them revealed the following: Lequios Airlines was established by a group of lo...Jump to post
BNA, RDU, AUS or PHL. Please stop 1. Does the fact that my home airport is in my username give you the right to automatically judge me as a troll? 2.

DTW-IND. I haven't flown it (done the reverse from an IROP a few years ago), but it's about 45 minutes in the air, or a six-hour drive.

I'm slowly getting myself conditioned to seeing the passport plum.
