  • Job opportunity for BoingBobby

    Should this be in the 747 operators thread? It is not every day that an airline submits a Letter Of Intention for 30 747-8i (the pax version)

    Have you done aeroengineering calculus on 500+ buttocks (or is it 1000?) vs. legroom?

      Hm. Should this be in LUNN's 747 thread, that was your question, right? I'd almost say yes. Not written by me, 'airlines who still operate the 747', but really written by LUNN:
      'airlines who tried to participate in the golden 747 jubilee, but they did not have one 747 in their fleet in February 2019..'

      Avatar Airlines clearly belongs into this group. I've even found a German version of that phenomenon. 2 minutes ago I wondered why Avatar Airlines has never achieved one entry in the wikipedia. But then I found this article (in German), and within a second, I do no longer fear that one of 'MY' LH-B744s soon will end in the hands of an airline which today even isn't really an airline..
      The German text about that phenomenon:
      https://www.flugrevue.de/zivil/absic...-747-8-kaufen/

      I know that this year not a single LH-B744 will be sold. Why. Because jubilees do count. And this is my baby, not yours:

      So. What can we say concerning job opportunities for 747 Bob. He always carries with him a photo of an Atlas Air Boeing 747. Sometimes, people are self-confident, but they do not really believe in all the good things which definitely not everybody on this planet is able to do. You can go downtown and celebrate carnival this weekend, and then try to ask 20 or 200 people if they always carry a photo of a Boeing 747 with them.
      And now guess why I know everything about this phenomenon..
      That's what airlines are good for, amongst others,

        An LOI in and of itself is largely meaningless. Particularly one from this crew.

            Most of the time, I like sources either which I trust, i.e. I have opened the link and my computer did not explode, and, I have read the text before I perceived that not a hazardous helicopter pilot has written it. Sorry, but I really seem to be quite in the Kobe Bryant topic, who seems to be the only man from 1978 who's ever been mentioned here in this forum who soon doesn't become 42. Didn't Kobe read the fine print about that pilot.. 'xy also flies a helicopter without main rotor into the fog, if you only pay him well. Not really stable under time pressure, but the only one who flies into dense winter fog with a visibility of only 4 damn nautical miles without Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS).'
            If I had been Kobe, I very clearly had spent my money on a private Sikorsky S-76B helicopter with at least two private IFR helicopter pilots, who only fly for me. That in my eyes is a big celebrity. John Travolta, with his own Boeing 707. 'Either I fly that bird or you convince me. Let's have a try.' And Kobe had the money to do it like Travolta. So, what was missing. The talent for an own helicopter license? Especially in that case I wonder, where did he find that pilot and why did he trust him?

            I still can't explain that. He had his 13 year old daughter with him, and he trusted.. an unknown amateur helicopter pilot without IFR license? Back on topic.

            LOI, from an airline who never has been an airline? 'Bereits in den 90er-Jahren versuchte Avatar-Chef..' .., if I may translate.. 'Yet in the 1990s Mr xy tried to establish an airline with a 747, but until the end of February 2020, he failed to do so.'

            LOI? I don't care. If I owned the D-ABVP (jetphoto see above), I'd never sell her. She is mine.
