Re: Flight report Feb 2019

YES! FOUR FOR FOUR....GRAND SLAM. Inbound 10 min late AND THE FLIGHT CREW HAS CALLED MAINTENANCE! “We need maintenance...gate 36...737-800.” “Rodger that” “Umm gate 36- we see that 3BS is on board...he’s buds with that bastard TeeVee...we’ll have a crew there in an hour to figure out if there’s a br...

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Pilot just set takeoff flaps (engines not started)

And now the whole flight just got canceled due to flight attendant time out. (And passengers asked off)

Oh, no- an update...the passengers say they don’t want off...we’re supposedly going

But another spray down (4) with flaps configured.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Dudes soaking the hell out of wing this time. Trailing edge ice cycles seem to be holding. Blasted the leading edge soaked the top....conversely the little bitty back flap (737) still looks coated.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Two spray jobs (15 min between)- pink stuff- and still ice cycles on wing. Crew reports that wind is complicating efforts. Third spray down underway.

Some reason they don’t do this before boarding?

Seen it there, and Gabriel (and some “data”) suggest in-flight break up.

Maybe there will be quality discussion here.

Of note is that the flight crew made zero apologies-just the normal 'thanks for flying with us'. I'd blame AA, but it was a regional company. Evan should note that a breakdown and s...

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

I’m sure the crew is in touch with operations, who is using phrases like “roger that” and “on the way” and “just as soon as we can”.

Trouble is, those are meaningless phrases.

Now 4:40...

Time to name names.

American Airlines

Cabin crew says “ if they would have just let us start the engines- we’d have burnt off the extra by now.”

Also rumors that they completely filled the first fuel truck.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Update 4:20...the fuel crew isn’t actually here yet.

Weather ok in DFW- just a broken CRJ and one with too much fuel.

Crappy logistics.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Now 4+ hours. Not sure what the deal is. Been on the plane 30 mins.

Update- new plane came with too much fuel...slowly offloading. They got the new plane over 1.5 hours ago, and no one thought to check the gas?

Airlines suck.

OK, Flyboy, an emergency call for help- 1) What is the short list of "parts" that tend to break on a CRJ-200, are they important for safety (I'm comfortable with 1-engine medivac choppers), and what is the procedure for starting the dang thi...

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Flight 2 now delayed for the elusive “Part”.

Indeed to the comment that I need to carry more stuff.

I’m at DFW, but on the west side. FedEx MD-11s don’t come over here much. :-(

Also, I need vectors to Sweet Monkey river, or the frequency for its ADF/NDB.

Where’s the tape? The third engine? The backup aircraft?

Re: Dash 8 down in Kathmandu

By the way, I am on record speculating that something broke or something bad happened on the plane.

Tough to swallow that it was botched piloting- turn it over to Evan’s computers, I guess.
