Question: Will the 737 MAX be featured with the ("new") green exit sign aka 'running man' like on B787 or the red EXIT letter sign?
It will be the classic red EXIT letter sign

Re: Spectacular British Airways Boeing 777 left-engine fire on take-off roll Las Vegas

Would love to see a pic from the other side... Also, I see they removed the fan for some reason... Curious why that would be... A GE90, as a GenX, is too big to be transported in 1 piece in most of the cargo A/C so they can remove and transport fan part and core part separately. Hence the removal o...

Thomson have their own maintenance department. Monarch has nothing to do with them. TU...

Re: The Jetairfly Boeing 787

Companies prefer short flights for training because it accelerates the training and pilots can be "released" from flying with instructors a lot quicker in time. Spending 7 hours in cruise for line training is a waste of time, especially if you have 13 other pilots waiting to do the same thing when ...

Re: Dead man flew 7 flights above Europe in landing gear A33

the wheel well of an A330 is not inspected every flight, not even every day. before at Sabena & SN we did it during weekly inspections. the wheel well of the A330 has 'a nice spot' for stow aways where on the A340 there is the center gear. you can't see if anybody is lying there. So there is nothing...

Re: Slide deployment A319 @ BRU today (7 Oct)

How do you forget such a thing? On all flights I've ever been on, this action is explicitly requested and confirmed to have been performed. also a white 'slide' indicator will come on at the door when the slide is not disarmed. if you don't notice this, you are getting blind. opening the door from ...

Re: Continental 1st US airline with new Boeing Sky Interior

the sky interiour is very overrated. nothing special with it at all. you can only have white, which hurts your eyes, blue and kind of 'sunrise/sunset' orange.

the bins on the other hand are bigger and they take less space in the cabin. so thats a real improvement!
