Re: SilkAir becomes 'Singapore Airlines'

Am I the only one here who will be sad that SilkAir branding will be gone? It has build up its name and loyalty over the decades as a leisure driven airline and their new cabin and product offering that comes with B737NG introduction was a breath of fresh air. MI's crew seems, to me IMO, much more ...

Re: Delta To Resume CMH-SLC, Confirms CMH TATL Interest

Nardone said the airport is “getting close” to European service. He said it’s a big investment for an airline to add a European flight, representing a commitment of $45 million to $50 million. A daily flight is more like $120m. They are talking about seasonal, non-daily? I'd think DL is the least l...

Re: Airbus Claims that A350XWB is quieter than B787, but is it really?

The posters here need to understand that the noise in the aircraft is highly dependant on your location in the plane. If you sat in the front of a 787 and just behind the engine of an A350, the A350 is going to sound louder. Obviously Airbus would take the time to standardize their testing methods.
