Re: FlyDubai 737 (Rostov-on-Don, RU)

Can any 737 bubbas comment on the TOGA/ flight director relationship when using single channel autopilot? I know a dude that left my former RJ company to fly as a captain over there. It was a shitty feeling waiting to hear back from him, to see if he was alright. Autopilot disconnects on a go aroun...

Re: Scimitar winglets..?

They are stilled being installed, Mickey just came with them installed and I saw another 800 in YLW possibly getting them done with the new seats. As far as I know all 800s will have them.

Re: New Routes coming for Westjet

One IROP and the poop its the fan. I agree YYZ domestic would be out of the question. I thought the 4th '67 was to be a spare. No? It is. If you look at the LGW sked in the summer it's planned around 3 planes and a spare.... In the winter, 1 airplane is gone on the YYZ-LGW route, 3 airplanes to cov...

Re: New Routes coming for Westjet

It will be interesting to see where they get the additional B767's to operate LGW in the winter. As this winter is now being operated by 3 aircraft, current usage is: YYC-HNL-YYC - 2x (14hrs each) YYC-OGG-YYC - 4x (15.5hrs each) YEG-OGG-YEG - 3x (13.5hrs each) YYZ-MBJ-YYZ - 1x (8.5hrs each) YYZ-YYC...

Re: Turbulent times for WJ ahead?

Will the 767 crews be grooming after an all night crossing? Or maybe they'll send the RP back to do the clean up? Or if they aren't going to groom how do the rest of the crews feel about that? Will they forego 3% in their profit share? No, no RP, don't seem to care, and more aspects to profit shari...

I was impressed to see AC stock surge today on the news that they were following WJ and removing the middle seat on their Rouge planes (I assume). The two companies are not that same though. It would be like comparing Delta or United, to Alaska or Southwest. I am curious as to why AC thinks the MAX...
