I'm going to have a rant here just because I felt the need to. For all of those posters who are not familiar with the correct term it is Maths with an S or Mathematics as the full term or even Arithmetics, the use of Math as a shortened version of Maths is lazy and not right but it seems to be a No...Jump to post
In case you were ever curious where NASA got their space shuttle carriers . . . http://www.nasa.gov/sites/default/files/images/708036main_ECN77-8608.jpg You cannot pluralize this with "space shuttle carriers". Only one is ex-American. The other is a former Japan Airlines 747SR-46. MoeJump to post
Regardless of the health debate, flights over six hours would be much easier if I could smoke. ATL is the only airport left in the USA, that I know of, that still has smoking lounges post security. Therefore, I always connect in ATL if possible. There are post-security smoking lounges at IAD as wel...Jump to post
Armchair CEO me says there's a good chance KE and AF get some. KE because they'll replace their 77Ws and also because they seem to buy everything in the air (except A330 and A350, up until now). Not sure what you mean with the A330...they've had them for nearly 20 years...this March is 20th anniver...Jump to post

This probably has something to do with the QSuite installation on the 777-300ER's, as one has to be rotated out of the fleet and subbed in with an A350 in DFW, with the A350 coming from LHR, which is replaced at LHR with another 77W through scheduling adjustments as LHR outbound and inbound can be ...Jump to post
I certainly stand corrected on the inauguration of service OGG-OAK. Two weeks (or so) ago I booked my flight for third week of January when, at the time, the service looked like it was going to start around the 15th or so, IIRC. Glad to hear they started on the 8th. Looking forward to my flight on t...Jump to post
Slightly OT, but what did HA use for west coast ops before the NEOs started coming in? Just the A330? HA also flew B767's Ya'll are speaking in past tense like the 767s are gone. Nothing further from the truth...they still FLY 767s. And the NEOs haven't even started revenue service to the mainland ...Jump to post

EDIT: As to not create another post... I agree with the poster below... LHR is a worthy location for one of these. And the one at Heathrow is the final airframe that currently isn't in a museum, if I'm not mistaken. So why not make an effort to save this last example...the initial hard work has alr...Jump to post

Just to add to the conversation, according to dictionary.com the word "found" also means "to ascertain by study or calculation." This definition applies in this case.Jump to post
I've been in North Korea in October and I've talked about that with our tour guides about that. They told me, that only the Tu204 and the An-148 are on scheduled services. They were in fact quite good informed about aviation, they even told me, they sometimes have spotter groups coming to North Kor...Jump to post
The 2009 rule also added requirements for things such as airbags in certain circumstances which can also be seen included as part of the lapbelt assembly.
This past December I had a flight attendant on my AA A330 flight from CLT to PHX explicitly tell me there was no photography onboard their aircraft and it "says so in the inflight magazine." The encounter started mid-flight when I was simply trying to get a phone photo of the map on the re...Jump to post
There is currently an AA international configuration A330 plying between Aruba and CLT, PHL-SFO etc. for winter months. Makes sense. According to Seat Guru and Seat Maestro there is only one configuration for each of the A330-200 and A330-300...so they're all "international configuration"...Jump to post
Wow, I must be old. Am I the only one that remembers the days when Dc-10s, L1011s and 767 widebodies routinely connected hubs together? AA used to fly DC10s and 767s between DFW and AUS. DL's ATL-MCO was almost all L1011s. And now we are a point that Anetters think its odd to have widebody on a dom...Jump to post

I think the MD-90 is quieter up front than the 717.
Air Tahiti Nui has bought some 787s to replace their A340s. QR was all Airbus before the 777-300ER/777-200LR and subsequent 787/777 orders. Gulf Air is all Airbus, with inbound 787 orders. Royal Jordanian was all Airbus prior to the 787's, excluding RJ's. In a more extreme example, Air Jamaica was ...Jump to post

Thanks for this information. I have visited BFI from PHX many times these past two years and I wondered what was going on with this bird. Glad to hear there is work going on. I wish the restoration team all the best to get this bird in display condition.Jump to post
So I’ve pretty much decided on AA. I want to keep my oneworld sapphire and I don’t think DL / AC are so much better for one flight to justify losing it. I just need to decide if it’s the A330 via PHL getting in about 5pm or if the direct flight on the aging 757 will suffice Just my opinion but I wo...Jump to post

Thought it would be fun to look back at the airline world 30 years ago in the USA .... The even older guard comprised Northwest's CV-580s and DC-9-10s - are you sure about both those types, in '87?

I've already answered but I can add my first 767 ride was also my shortest widebody flight: 28 July 1987 Delta 767-300 N121DE from San Diego to Ontario...it was a tag (add-on) on the SAN-ONT-ATL. 24 minutes for the 95 statute-mile (published distance) flight.Jump to post
