The Trent 700 has a function called MEASTO (Modified Engine Acceleration Schedule for TakeOff) which controls the engine acceleration. It also has KOZ (Keep Out Zone), that is basically so it does not dwell at specific RPMs. Both of these functions are there to prevent various engine issues. More de...Jump to post

A lot of companies in Asia and Europe have Y as company policy. When I worked for Siemens, travel policy was pretty much Y for everyone, every distance.

I don't see anything too comical about the article, for years IATA has shown the highest yielding passengers in the world are within North America. The 2017 IATA outlook had an expected average profit of $19.58/passenger in North America, $5.65 in Europe, $4.44 in Asia Pacific, $1.56 in the Middle E...Jump to post

13 hours per calendar day is very high for an airliner, we would also normally track another number called a flight day which will generally about one hour higher per day.

The main difference between legacy carriers and LCC is that legacy carriers wil sell the majority of their premium seats via contracts with various companies, they are not sold mainly by retail channels, the remainder of their inventory goes into the GDS for retail sale.

If legacies are so confident about premium yields and loads , why not go all premium configuration. Can a A321LR with 20F hop the pond.
Leave the cattle class to LCCs.
When will legacies come out this conundrum?
Well next step for you then is to look at the various ils transmitter patents on the net they will describe it in more detail, enough for you to build one.Jump to post

If EPIRB is so cheap, why don't aircraft manuacturers install it on their aircraft as a standard equipment. There must be some technical barriers or obstacles.

I dont see any changes to regulations happening as a direct result.

I was surprised when they placed the order and for that many frames in 2013. The days of Frankfurt Airlines are long gone.

There seems to be a lot missing from what has been reported.

Also Germany has an efficient and effective railway system that does away with the need for a lot of connections, you can get a train from Düsseldorf to Frankfurt in the time it takes people to drive to some airports.
I don't follow the logic presented.
Is this advertising ?
There is a dedicated thread on the 77X development that is 45 pages long
Many airlines are already carrying 400+ passengers in twin engine aircraft.
This is very odd.
Normally fleet plans at large airlines are long term strategies and do not worry too much short term ripples.
There are pieces to this puzzle missing, it seems like LH has a lot more information to base this on that they are not disclosing.
777-300ER& 777-200LR T-O thrust per engine is 115300 lb., The 777-300 is 98000 lb. for the lighter sorter range & 777-200ER is 93700 lb. There is not a listing for 97300 lb. for any -300ER. So the thrust for the 300ER is 230600 lb. vs 136000 lb. for A340-300 if it has the hight thrust engin...Jump to post
The 777-300ER has the 115,300lbs GE90-115B That is sea level on an ISA day, it will not generate anywhere near that much thrust at a density height of 10,000+ ft which you can find at BOG. Needless to say takeoff performance is based upon one engine inoperative. The low height crossing could be exp...Jump to post

How do you it always the aircraft and not the crew ? When flying at the maximum permissible flight duty periods it takes next to nothing for crew to time out and unable to complete the flight.
