  2. Except the MD-11's are a pain in the butt to mainatain that's why the 340 sold well. If MH was that desprate they could have a fleet of b757'S for Asia Pacfic B777's for long haul and B747'S for trnk and it would be a good idea if Mas Cargo order's B747-8I
  3. Maybe that's what Heathrow needs let the airplanes land on the taxiway, so there is no arguments over the 3rd runway
  4. Maybe because they alreday had some deposits with Boeing and not airbus so it makes sense to order Boeing.
  5. Air Canada jet diverted over beer theft (AFP) – 6 hours ago OTTAWA — There was no fire, engine woe or medical emergency when an Air Canada Jazz flight made an unscheduled stop in western Canada late Tuesday: the pilot diverted the jet over a beer theft, police said. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Steve Holmes told AFP that a passenger had stolen beer from a beverage cart and tried to flush the empty cans down the 50-seat jet's toilet to dispose of the evidence. The flight from Vancouver to Fort McMurray, Alberta was diverted to Kelowna, British Columbia, and police arrested the 23-year-old suds thief. The man faces charges of causing a disturbance on an aircraft, Holmes said. Federal police also interviewed two other passengers who were not charged, Holmes said. They told local media they had been drinking prior to take-off. "We have a zero tolerance policy as it concerns unruly passengers," Air Canada Jazz spokeswoman Debra Williams told online newspaper Kelowna.com.

  6. I thought the pall bird was in Morjave until I read the fine print
  7. Kyrgyzstan: Boeing 737-200 are temporarily banned Kyrgyz aviation banned the exploitation of Boeing 737-200 aircrafts. On October 10 such decree was issued by the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) of Kyrgyzstan. This decision is reasoned by more frequent problems in Boeing 737-200 aircraft engines, registered in Kyrgyzstan. The ban is effective until the real reasons of engine incidents are investigated. Boeing 737-200 of Kyrgyz ITEK Air Company crashed on August 24, 2008 near Bishkek. 65 people died in the accident. Photo by Ferghana.Ru news agency. The details are available here. According to the press-service of Transport and Communications Ministry of Kyrgyzstan, CAD department for aircraft maintenance is assigned to run unscheduled inspections of Boeing 737-200 aircrafts, registered in the country, as well as check such organizations that provide technical service to Istok Avia, Itek Air and Max Avia. The users of Boeing 737-200 must provide appropriate documents, legitimizing the performance of technical service, engines and airborne auxiliary power in all accordance with technical maintenance program, approved by CAD. Earlier, Boeing 737-200 aircrafts, owned by Kyrgyz air companies, were listed in the air accidents three times. The last one took place on October 9 in Islamabad when Kyrgyz aircraft had to return to airport due to engine problems. From http://enews.ferghana.ru/news.php?id=1411&mode=snews
  8. That's what I thought the athour should write AK
  9. Anything other MH, I rather sacrafice maybe 50 dollars to go on SQ,QF or EK than MH.
  10. will the parts be expensive on the planes as they are on the cars
  11. If you click on the link you can see the picture http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26145792-17102,00.html http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26145792-17102,00.html http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,26145792-17102,00.html
  12. 200 birds sucked into jet's engine DWARFED by the jetliner, they look little more than a smattering of black dots. But this flock of birds could have brought the plane crashing down in seconds. They flew straight into the path of the Germania airlines flight to Kosovo as it took off from Dusseldorf airport with 80 on board. ‘It was like a scene from the Hitchcock movie The Birds. One second all was clear, and the next thing you saw were these birds swarming over the plane,’ said an onlooker. It is thought more than 200 starlings were sucked into the right engine as the Boeing jet approached 200mph. Others dented the fuselage but thankfully did not pierce it. Their splattered remains could be seen on the plane later. ‘The pitch of the engine said it all,’ said plane-spotter Juergen Kienast, who took these dramatic pictures. ‘It was like sticking a bit of metal pipe into a blender.’ Once airborne, the pilot reported engine damage and circled for almost 45 minutes before landing safely.

  13. That doesn't matter, it depends on the product so what MH have a product just better than the american product which is like a Hyundai, but Singapore Airlines is Just like a Mercedes Benz. I would want the benz so that is why they can fill their 380's so well
  14. If I was MH I would order 20 350-900lr's, 25 350-1000 HGW and push Airbus to put more range in the 1000. Put them on routes like 900 Johannisberg/Cape Town Port Louis Los Angeles via Honolulu New York via Honolulu Guangzhou Paris Rome Dubai Cairo Istanbul Frankfurt Nairobi/Addis Ababa Stockholm Brussles Bern Athens Vienna 1000 Amsterdam Beijing Brisbane Melbourne Tokyo Taipei Hanoi Ho chi Minh city Osaka Seoul Keep 2-4 dugongs for the Hopping Mad (Kangaroo) route so MH still retains there market share, Singapore, Bangkok, kota kinablu, penang, kuching,Hong Kong to max time and meccah. This gives Air Asia a run for there money as the flying public will want to fly the dugong and put the fairs to malaysia at air asia prices plus 30rm as the public will pay a premium just to go on the 380. This will help bring back MH back to no.1 malaysia carrier.
  15. Japanese media Manichi on 24SEP09 reported a list of 50 routes that JAL plans to suspend in the next 3 years. It is canceling 21 International and 29 Domestic routes. The cancellation also sees the pull out for 9 International destinations and 7 domestic ports. Osaka Kansai Airport takes the hardest hit as JAL plans to cut over 50% of its International service. Although the list is reported, it is expected that strong objections for local communities in Japan as service by JAL is seen as their "lifeline" for air traffic service. The Fiscal Year noted below ends the March 31 of the following year. For Instance, FY2009/2010 runs from 01APR09 to 31MAR10. The affected Routes are following: Note that for FY2009/10, some of the route suspension has been announced already INTERNATIONAL FY2009/10 Tokyo - Hangzhou Tokyo - Mexico City (service currently via Vancouver, but the latter not affected) Tokyo - Qingdao Tokyo - Xiamen Osaka - Dalian Osaka - Hanoi Osaka - London Osaka - Busan Osaka - Seoul Incheon Osaka - Singapore* Nagoya - Paris CDG Nagoya - Seoul Incheon *Assuming service to Kuala Lumpur will also be suspended as it operates Osaka - Singapore - Osaka FY2010/11 Tokyo - Amsterdam Tokyo - Brisbane Tokyo - Rome FY2011/12 Tokyo - Kaohsiung Tokyo - Sao Paulo (via New York JFK) Osaka - Bangkok Osaka - Denpasar Nagoya - Bangkok DOMESTIC FY2009/10 Osaka Kansai - Aomori Osaka Kansai - Asahikawa Osaka Kansai - Kushiro Osaka Kansai - Memanbetsu Osaka Kansai - Obihiro Osaka Itami - Tanegashima Okinawa - Aguni Nagoya Chubu - Hanamaki Nagoya Chubu - Kumamoto Tokyo Haneda - Kobe FY2010/11 Nagoya Chubu - Kushiro Kobe - Ishigaki Kobe - Okinawa Kobe - Sapporo Kitakyushu - Okinawa Sapporo Okadama - Hakodate Sapporo Okadama - Kushiro Hakodate - Asahikawa Hakodate - Kushiro Hakodate - Okushiri Hakodate - Sapporo Chitose Hiroshima Nishi - Kagoshima Hiroshima Nishi - Miyazaki Okayama - Kagoshima FY2011/12 Matsumoto - Fukuoka Matsumoto - Osaka Itami Matsumoto - Sapporo Chitose Shizuoka - Fukuoka Shizuoka - Sapporo Chitose From http://www.airlineroute.net/2009/09/jal-50-routes-cancellation-list.html
  16. The reason is it has to compliy with local German law that states all german airplanes must have the german flag (Not like the germans want a british flag on there regestered aircraft).
  17. The longest transatlantic plane is VS, IB, SA, and LH A340-600 shortest/first with stops NC-4 shortest/first without stops Vickers Vimy Hope it helps
  18. Do you mean shortest plane to cross the atlantic, or shortest plane to cross the atlantic non-stop
