  5. Very nice! You captured some ultra-rare Venezuelan airlines as well.

  7. Using www.liveatc.net and www.flightradar24.com to see which runways they are using can be helpful. Great pictures!
  8. The MD-11 will carry revenue passengers for the very last time on Saturday, October 25, with the final two flights leaving from Toronto and Montreal to Amsterdam. Will anyone go out to the airport and witness an important moment in aviation history? KLM691 will arrive YYZ around 11:30am, and leave around 5:30pm. KLM671 will arrive YUL around 4:50pm and leave around 7:00pm. KLM is the last airline to operate the MD-11 in scheduled passenger service.
  9. http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/08/world/asia/malaysia-airlines-plane-missing/index.html?hpt=hp_t1 239 people on board. Flight was enroute Kuala Lumpur-Beijing, flight MH370 on a Boeing 777-200ER. Aircraft registration is 9M-MRO. Very distressing news.
  10. Philippine Airlines will launch service to Toronto starting Nov. 30, three times a week. Eastbound sector will operate nonstop, but Westbound sector involves a stop at YVR presumably because of prevailing winds, requiring more fuel. On the other hand, they are dropping service to Las Vegas. Source: http://airlineroute.net/2012/09/23/pr-yyz-w12/
  11. Hi guys, Long time no see. I recently flew on two Delta DC-9s, one of which was 33 years old, and one that was 36 years old! Here's a video that I took: I'll upload the video from the return flight soon. Thanks for watching!
  12. Looks like an Emirates A380 diverted to YOW because of inclement weather at YYZ. Must be the first time that the largest passenger airliner landed there! It will be heading to YYZ soon. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAE241/history/20120601/2215Z/CYOW/CYYZ
  13. So, the day has come. The Fishbowl is in its swansong. It's the end of an era. What an amazing career it had. Kudos, and farewell.
  14. Perhaps you could try following TTC's Twitter feed and get updates on the TR locations there. Or, if you just want to wait it out, you should be able to get one much faster if you wait at Union instead at the end of the line.
  15. Here's a video of 5421-26 I took today: Edit: One more -
  16. Rode it today! Was it 5421-5426's first day of revenue service?
  17. US Airways 737-400. Lovely sounds coming out of that engine! US Airways A321. Beautiful scenery below! Continental 737-900ER in retro livery, taken at Seattle Tacoma Airport. Her majesty on a rare sunny day in Seattle, at the Museum of Flight. Prototype 747 AA268 SEA->JFK with gorgeous scenery below. jetBlue E-190, climbing out of JFK.
  18. Of course, those are just the list prices. Many airlines pay much less when they order in bulk. They're strong negotiators. In some cases, you may see discounts of up to 40% per airframe.
  19. I was in Seattle last week, and was very impressed with the city! However, I did not see any Orions during my stay there. I stayed right by Madison St and Broadway, would that have been too far to see them?
  20. Just flew with them on Monday (23rd). Third time flying them so far. Like my past experiences, this one was so-so as well. The ground crew at JFK Terminal 5 were rather robotic and unenthusiastic, as well as one of the flight attendants. It wasn't bad, but it was a truly unremarkable experience. Granted it was a short flight, but a smile does go a long way in giving good impressions. At least acknowledge a "thank you" with "you're welcome", not just a blank stare. I don't really want to be picky, but for all of the good attention they've been getting, I think most of it is just hype, and I feel that many people give them too much credit for what they are. I enjoyed the Embraer 190 though, good plane!
  21. Only listing airlines that I have actually flown more than once: American Airlines (no joke) KLM Singapore Airlines Korean Air Continental Airlines Finnair I've flown on 26 different airlines total, and these 6 stand out to be particularly memorable, in a good way of course.

  23. Yes, to a certain degree. Over the past decade or so, airlines have shifted to smaller planes serving cities at higher frequencies, so you will see more 737s flying across the continent. The 737-900ER has a similar capacity to the 757-200 and can do most of the flying that a 757 can at much lower operating costs. Continental has moved most of their 757s to their transatlantic ops--most of their transcon flying is done on 737-800s and 900s, with the exception of a few "trunk" routes that see 757-200s and 300s, and so has American Airlines. I myself flew on a Continental 737-800 from Newark to San Francisco, and the trip was around 7 hours with strong headwinds! Continental and American both operate their 737s to Colombia and Venezuela as well. Lots of added capacity compared to the -700 at marginal extra operational costs. More emphasis on higher route frequencies, as well as the addition of winglets. The 757 is also the perfect size for many of the smaller European cities that US airlines have started to serve. The arrival of the 777-300ER--the plane that can carry almost as many passengers as a 747-400 with roughly 20% lower operational costs. There is no reason why any aircraft type should be singled out for better care, unless if it has design flaws that make it trickier to maintain or handle. That's not the case with the 777. The 777 is simply lucky to have been introduced at a time when air safety in general improved markedly. They already have. On Airbus: Not really true. Where did you get that from? The A320 actually consumes less fuel than the 737-800 on flights longer than 600nm (at least on the IAE V2500 powered ones) by up to 6%. Debatable. That may have been the trend in the early 2000s before the introduction of higher gross weight models for the -300 series were introduced, but the -300 has recently seen a surge in sales. Swiss and Lufthansa have replaced all of their -200 series with -300s. The -200 generally has more range since it's lighter than the -300, hence less drag. The A340 is almost done for. Once the A350 arrives, it will be completely done for. On both Boeing and Airbus: Yes They're both capable planes, although the E-Jets have longer range and have higher capacity models that don't completely overlap with what Bombardier has to offer. My guess is that it comes down to sales tactics by the respective companies. It's not only about the performance, but other deals such as parts support, pricing etc. If there is a market for 50-seater regional jets, they will not stop making them. In certain circumstances, yes. However, not on longer distance routes. ATRs and Q400s are much slower.
  24. I think that TF-FIX is their only -300 series.
  25. Change of plans. KLM will retain MD-11 operations to YVR. http://airlineroute.net/2010/12/02/kl-s11-update5/
