    605 Performance....?

    Same engines, same wing, same fuel tanks, same performance. Buy a used 604 and save about $20mil.

    605 Performance....?

    With the wind at your back, 3600nm@.80 is more realistic. Maybe 3800nm@.78. With the wind in your face it's more like a 3000nm airplane @.80. Don't plan on going above FL350 if you're heavy, and you will be. You'll need at least 6500' of runway at MTOW at sea level, and you'll probably be at...

    AA toxic culture

    Remember when the union demanded the FE sit on the jumpseat in a 737 because it was too dangerous to have less than 3 pilots in the cockpit? Flying a jet across the ocean with less than 3 engines was too dangerous? An all glass cockpit was too dangerous? Using an iPad for approach plates is...

    AA toxic culture

    You sound like a bunch of foolish, control freak pilots trying to control something that is way beyond your grasp. Airliners went from 3 pilot cockpits to 2 pilot cockpits. There will eventually be 1 pilot in the cockpit and then none. Just a "systems analyst" making $10 an hour while some...

    Flying ion grace month

    They don't care about resetting your base month as long as you did not act as PIC during your grace month. I would stop flying as PIC after 6 months if I planned on taking a few months off.

    Flying ion grace month

    All flights conducted as PIC in your grace month would be illegal and subject to violation. Complete the training prior to the last day of your grace month or only fly as SIC during your grace month.

    604/605 pilots

    Impossible. Geneva to Bangor would be hard enough, unless you enjoy landing with 1500-2000 lbs of fuel.

    Fractional vs. owned aircraft, pros and cons

    I must have missed most of those posts, but my intent was more specific to G4G5's job. Netjets has a good product, but it's not for everyone.

    Owned aircraft pro: his pilots will NEVER go on strike. Ever.

    Does anyone know what airlines are all about

    A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. "What food might this contain?" the mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap. Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning: "There is a mousetrap in the house...

    Speculator's mocking the airlines

    Does your airline now charge for PA's or is it still free?

    Speculator's mocking the airlines

    Yeah, ya'll are right, it has nothing to do with crappy airline service. Why pay $300 for a round trip ticket when you can pay $5000/hr on a corporate jet? The oil speculators aren't the only ones mocking the airlines. Your best (former)customers have been doing it for years.

    Speculator's mocking the airlines

    That's exactly my point. How do you think most Netjets customers traveled the country before Netjets existed? That's right- on the airlines, probably sitting in first class. You lost your bread and butter and they're never coming back. You can raise fares all you want but you'll only lose...

    Speculator's mocking the airlines

    Hey moron, most of those pax at Netjets used to be YOUR everyday 121 pax. In fact, they used to buy first class tickets. I wonder why they choose to pay more for Netjets?

    DL sees 2nd Q profit, plans 13% capacity cut for 2nd half 2008

    Don't worry, there won't be any furloughs at Delta. They have millions of 777's on firm order and they can't cancel any of them. Those airplanes are staffed at 500 pilots per airplane so Delta will be hiring for the next millenium.

    International Security Risk Ratings???

    That would be the CIA, but I think their scale goes from 1 to 10.
