    Really no one else? Well, then let me continue.

    Btw, Alex, or Gabe, can you imagine that Düsseldorf International airport is one of the very few if not the only International airport in Northern Europe who at least somehow tries to rescue some of the destinations which I mentioned here in #7 ?!

    So, how does that work. Must be either a smartish airline or a responsible airport, or both.. And a CEO who reads one of the best aviation platforms (?!).

    Montego Bay, # 1134, nonstop @ DUS twice a week (with exceptions), beginning with Sun Nov 17 and # 1136, beginning with Mon Nov 18.

    That seems to become one of the most interesting winter seasons here at Lohausen. I just can't remember if
    Montego Bay nonstop
    once was part of the DUS schedule during the last 41 years.

    We help where we can.

    Hm. I know that here on jetphotos there is , or should I say there was .. at least one member in Manchester and one in London. I had expected that there is rather more a conversation than a monologue! 10,735 seats which do not take off today! Who is able to help? In clear letters. 46 jets are on the ground, and somebody should buy them! And I'd prefer British investors. Ex British Airline, IATA Code MT. British home airport, Manchester UK. Not only British customers. A good part of German passengers suffer since Thomas Cook is dead. But my favorite airline is not always the solution. CEO Spohr tried to financially rescue the Alitalia, and what was the answer?! Impossibile, we only trust the Italian tax payers. Fine. But nobody is able to say, that LH does not try it. PS: This platform somehow lacks a man with a British Airways jet as his avatar. We do have alot here on this platform, worldwide, and I'm proud of that. Swiss International, KLM, Qantas, American Air, Delta, TAP Lissabon,...

  • I totally agree with you. I only exactly know 1 timeframe in aviation history. And I'll never in my life forget that. 238 seconds. For Flight Captain Chesley Sullenberger III to rescue all 155 souls on board, including himself. So let's assume you are not PF, you are not even in the cockpit, like Dubois. 238 seconds then are not enough for you. They had the time. Yes, in my eyes the PF always has 238 seconds to rescue his aircraft. Imho that was the case before AF #447 impacted on the Atlantic Ocean, with a speed of.. cruise speed at 350 plus x.. as far as I remember, the French BEA stated that the AF A332 impacted almost flat on the Ocean, i.e. not with a nose dive, but with the full length of an A332, a belly landing with let's say 500 knots ground speed. Nobody and nothing survives something like that if not somebody releases the yoke so that the jet almost automatically flies out of the stall, a proper altitude assumed. The right seat F/O must have died on impact, still ri...

  • That's what we already found out .. when. And then there comes a jetphotos newbie who thinks it would be a good idea to only have 1 F/O in the cockpit, in case of AF #447. Shit. Usually, I am a quite friendly person. I just try to remember what I wrote with only 8 or 18 jetphotos forum entries. Was I so keen back then to say, pah, an Airbus 330 on the longhaul does not need more than 1 unexperienced F/O between SBGL and LFPG. I hope I was not. I am almost sure that I was not! Yes. And the most evil thing was, the two F/Os in the cockpit said goodbye to the only AF Flight Captain on board, who then went to sleep, as if they had not one question. Intelligent people know what they do not know. Especially on a nonstop flight with almost 6,094 nautical miles (Guarulhos, in the printed LH winter schedule 2010, type LH-B744). Galeao is a little bit shorter, but not that much imho. 807 flight hours on type, for the man who killed himself and a full Airbus 330-200. And only 1 Flight Ca...

  • Should the 757 production have ended after only 23 years? That's a question which I've never discussed. That was 2004. I was not yet here in this forum back then. But this question probably is crucial and as new as this Friday: Is the 737 max-9 able to replace the whole type 757? I mean, here on my home airport, I have never in my life seen a 737 who crossed the Atlantic Ocean nonstop! The 757-200 has a range of not more than 3,900 nautical miles with MTOW. That is not quite enough for JFK, in case of a German B752, but for Boston Logan. The 737 max-9 has a range of not more than 3,500 nautical miles with MTOW. That is neither enough for JFK nor for Logan, if that were a German 737 max-9. I don't feel good with the replacement 737 versus 757. Does that mean, United reduces the longhaul flights? In Germany, the longhaul theoretically starts at 2,000 nautical miles. But all jet pilots on TV say, longhaul is nothing without having crossed the pond. Boston Logan, at least. 3,800 nauti...

  • I don't read documents when Evan calls them insulting. I mean, this is ET #302 part 1099, and with it that's also type 737 max-8/737 max-9/737 max-10 problem #1099. I know what I said last time when I was here in this topic. United owns 14 jets type B737 max-9, and not one of these was in the air since more than half a year! I have to avoid the thought what could happen if it were my favorite airline, who gave Boeing an order for another 47 jets (!) type B737 max-9, and another order for one-hundred (100) jets type B737 max-10, and not a single jet has been delivered since more than half a year! Sorry, but we in Germany are/my favorite airline is connected with United by the Star Alliance. I'd have to puke with such inactive orders in my mind. PS: ..and United tries to replace a whole a/c type by the 737 max-9. Not everything in Europe is fine and brilliant, but I know an airline who pays people to be e.g. 'Lufthansa Boeing 747 Flottenkapitän' . That's quite difficult for me to tran...

  • My dear threadstarter, that's where I stopped reading more. I am a passenger. And nobody convinced me during the last 41 years, and nobody will for the next 410 years. Kent, you really seem like a jetphotos newbie, with only 8 forum entries in almost 4 years. So let me tell you what happened here during the last 15 years. We discussed cases like AF #447. Don't tell me that weren't connected to too much computers on board a (longhaul) jet. 228 souls died, zero survivors. And why. The F/O and PF tried to pull out his stick out of that Airbus A330, at FL350 (!) ! And why did he try something insane/stupid like that. Not enough training on the longhaul, not enough training in an Airbus A330-200 (!), not enough training on A332 with MTOW, not enough training... not enough training!!! And why not enough training. Because back then everybody thought that an Airbus A330-200 is able to fly when all the two pilots in cockpit are sleeping! Epic fail, the biggest epic fail in aviation since I...

    replied to Robert S. Randazzo
    Please excuse me. Especially for my #3 here in this topic.. I know Randazzos company at least as long as I am a jetphotos forum member, so, let say since at least 11 or 15 years. And not during a second I doubted that he still sells - imho - the best B744 semi pro simulator, for fsx in my case. So, how does that fit together with a server timeout which was not announced, never, nowhere. That's the point why I was a little bit wild. Nick, I followed your link for Randazzo, and it worked. But now I have questions. I took a cart and filled it with a product, and then the system asks me 'calculate shipping?' . Does that mean, the product will be shipped? I'd clearly appreciate that! 1. How long will that take? Everyone knows my location, or is able to look at my avatar.. I mean, sometimes I say, put that thang into the next 747, that's the easiest and fastest way of transport. In this case it is true again. 8 hours and 50 minutes. A/c type? 747-800 passage. 2. If it is not shipped,...
