Re: United Airlines

Yeah, I think there may need to be some context to that analysis and the context may be difficult to come by. Hawaii is hot... cargo holds can be hot... many animals don't tolerate heat well... put that all in a pot and stir and you end up with a lot of harmed animals. I think the key in that case ...

Re: United Airlines

A side note: if the tail # of the airplane in question is being reported correctly as N632RW, then I've flown it quite a few times.

Re: A Hugely Important Announcement

Ok, I got that. Thank you. But my question was more regarding how things work (typically), what a pilot can expect in terms of career growth, not what is legally admissible. For the first question, I guess that, typically, you will have a good bunch of MD-80 CA and 777 FO that will want this 777 CA...

Re: Do the marshall folks on the wings ever "DO" anything?

Actually, most of them are pretty attentive, but, as in everything else, there is always that percentage of dipshits. But yes, they've definitely prevented unpleasant stuff from happening before.

Re: Effort to Save Ike's Constellation

And once you've restored it, you have to maintain it! I remember seeing an interview with someone from a group that had restored a WWII bomber - I think it was the Commemorative Air Force and the B-17. The guy said that altogether it cost about $20,000 an hour to operate the aircraft... ouch! If he...

Quite an undertaking, a restoration like that. Consider that it took Lufthansa (with all their resources) three airplanes to build one.
