Cseries order and BOS transatlantic service at some point to AMS, CDG, DUB, LGW, and MAD I think ORY would be a better option than CDG because it might be easier for them to get a slot there. CDG sees a lot more traffic than ORY does so it probably is slot restricted. I don't think any airline has ...Jump to post

I wouldn't call 30 degrees a high bank angle turn. On a published departure or arrival you will never see more than 30 degrees. So, I am not sure exactly whay you are referring to when you talk about high bank angles. Low-bank vs high-bank mode on the ATR ADU (autopilot/FD control panel). On an ATR...Jump to post

It is possible that the mechanic, Ociel...Jump to post
I've been on that flight. I've booked it just to fly 747 and was really disappointed when they changed to A330 5 days before departure. But even the A330 was pretty empty so I guess the change was due to low demand. A 747 would have been a waste that day. To me it felt like half of the passengers w...Jump to post

[ Autothrottles are not a requirement for Cat III approach insofar that they can be MEL'd. That said, doing a Cat III with manual throttles adds quite a bit to the workload.

Interesting. The 727-200s that I flew had the AT selector on the panel next to the fire switched (handles), but no ATs installed.

This AA 737 from DFW to PSP cruised at 34,000 for the first half of the flight, and 24,000 for the second half. Is this a pressurization problem, losing one pack maybe?

I think it's almost certain it will be a narrowbody aircraft. Considering all the talk about a twin aisle from airlines, that is false.

RTM would be a perfect candidate for the LR if it wasn’t for the relatively short 2200m runway.
Boeing offered some variants too late for them to really make a difference. In addition to the 747-400ER, same applies to the 753 and the 764. 9/11 probably had an effect as well.Jump to post

You must fly the 737 when you mention a horn. :) All other Boeing models have an EICAS Warning “CONFIG FLAPS” if you advance to takeoff power with the flaps not in a valid takeoff setting (5-20).
