How could you still like Marmite after moving to the land of Vegemite? I was brought up on Marmite, but now I take Vegemite with me when I go to UK!!! Anyway, would really like to hear about the Delta standby pass. Always wanted to do this with Eastern or another airline. Would have been fantastic....Jump to post
Bro, that's 17 hours. Go into Hong Kong for 7 or 8 hours and wonder around. Go get a custom made suit, take a walking food tour, etc. It's a fabulous city. I went in February and loved it. You can do some of that and still have time to dilly dally at the airport. It would be a complete waste to go ...Jump to post

I was on the flight with you. I booked it as soon as I read about it on A.net...probably in May. Coming from PHX on the Saturday I routed PHX-MSP on an MD-90 then a 757-200 to DTW. I spent the night off airport in a hotel a short bus ride away...got back to the DL terminal at 11am Sunday and spent t...Jump to post
Must be a positioning flight for LAX-PVG service. This is indeed a positioning flight for the LAX-PVG flight. Also as this is a longer than 24 hour turnaround what A350 will operate the flight the next day or are they going back to a B77L?? If it’s daily A350 surely they will need another positioni...Jump to post

The very weird coincidence was that I stopped on the stairs and turned around to have my photo taken. The serial number can easily be seen — 17119, better known as TWA 800.

Obviously a taxiway and not a runway. Then again, only a small percentage of passengers (and an even smaller percentage of the general population) knows the difference... Hell, even the news media can't keep airport nomenclature straight. e.g. "They sat on the runway for 8 hours..." Yeah ...Jump to post

Great report! But let’s be honest... no one jokingly ever asks for an upgrade. We usually ask with hope.

Great trip report, interesting though Hawaiian diverted back to HNL, was it closer to go back there than continue on to AUK/SYD/some island? Realistically speaking HNL was the logical option.

Down Under with Delta - with a couple of SNAFUs along the way. Hi A-netters. This report is about a trip to Sydney, New South Wales in late July 2016.

As for CX about... Yes they're allowed to sell that because that will be a half return ex JFK to HKG, HKG being the breakpoint and then HKG -LAX being the return.

Me too. Unless it's fast food where they have plastic (non-conductive) silverware.

1.000 737's that would have been quite an impressive fleet if they had kept each and everyone. If they put them cockpit to tail (with the length of the 737-700 seed) it would have been a parade of 34km.
Thanks! Is that cool or what? I think it's awesome that such rare aircraft can still be seen every now and then. Yes, I know, I know, the IL-96 is not the most economic plane but as an aviation enthusiast, I feel we should welcome every bit of variety while we still can. I really love big brutal wi...Jump to post

Is it a fact?
Hard to believe this event happened nearly four decades ago. I was a Freshman in High School and the crash announcement was made at our school on the West Coast.
R.I.P. the victims and condolences to everyone involved.
LH operates dozens of ~20 year old+ aircraft. Have they ever had a practice of parking narrow body aircraft (other than the 737-500's) prior to 20-25 years in recent memory? They have plenty of A320's already in that category, and I think all of their 737-300 fleet spent at least 20-25 years in ser...Jump to post

OZ ordered 2 (or two were built). They never operated them, the planes were sold to Pan Am. And yes Boeing gave OZ a customer code-D4. You can see in your photo that the plane had already been sold to Pan Am and given its PA reg- N362PA. I wonder then why Eastern had that Z suffix :scratchchin: 438...Jump to post
Cool report and thanks for posting. DEN is one of my favorite airports. I was lucky to be at Stapleton the evening it closed and at the new Denver Int'l Airport the next morning. I didn't see the first flight arrive (from COS) but I was there for a good part of the morning.Jump to post
