Yea lol the A380 ain't a looker but it's a pretty good intercontinental/transatlantic people mover lol

And the whole double decker thing is cool.

I could imagine a more premium airline adding like some kinda entertainment stuff upstairs as I imagine they'd be doing really long haul flights. Like anywhere in western Europe to somewhere on the US West coast or maybe even Hawaii. If it had fewer people on board.

Not a huge fan of the 757 but I mean DJT owns one and I mean Trump Force One doesn't look too bad. 

Heh

You could argue something like their various 737 variants are "competitors", but I'm sure lobbying does a good job of securing your financial future.

They should bring something like the MD-95 717 back again.

YES.

It's just that Boeing is probably the only one that makes a big deal when competitors benefit.

But in all seriousness, it's one of the most boring ass jets ever made. Even the 787 and the A340 are more remarkable.

That's honestly what I really miss, the regional jet segment that was popular with major airlines at one point. I mean you have the CRJ shit that's with American, but that really isn't the same as a jet not unlike the DC-9 line.

Delta still flies MD-88s and 717s, but that's about the only major American airliner to do so.

Aren't the 717s getting replaced by the CSeries?

I believe the MD-88s are. Delta's only had the 717s for a few years by this point, and they'll probably fly the fuck out of them until, my guess is the late 2020s.

And even then, I bet once they get rid of the 717s they're going to end up with used jets.

Honestly, it's a little funny that Airbus went with multiple engines with the A340. I'm gonna guess that it was just a bit too early to really have two engines.

Then again McDonnell Douglas thought that trijets were the future. As much as I love the DC-10 and the MD-11, the MD-11 was just pointless in the face of the rising widebody two-engined jets.

Yeah, I really wanna see American switch up it's CRJs with the A220. Just the interior, at least how airBaltic has it. Is so bright and clean. It is weird though, the 3-2 seating arrangement.

Let's just say, I wished American wouldn't fly CRJs from CLT to HSV. I wished they still had MD-80s in service to do that route.

 

Which is why I may consider getting an AAdvantage CC eventually but I could see myself flying more on Delta (american's program is better tho and MasterCard vs Amex) just because I'd rather go from ATL to HSV on a 717 or MD-88 lol

The Concorde is my favorite civilian aircraft. Too bad that we've regressed back to subsonic only transport

The Concorde's last crash was fatal enough to let it be grounded.

 

Plus, it could only really fly supersonic over the oceans, and likely didn't bring enough ROI to airlines flying it. That thing used as much fuel taxiing from the gate to the runway as the average car does in a year.

 

Not cheap to fly.

Well and Boeing and I forget who else did a study for their SST project and found that people don't generally like frequent sonic booms...

They could shatter windows and cause other damage from what I've read about it, which is why the Concorde couldn't fly supersonic over populated areas.

Its last crash?

 

You mean its ONLY crash which was a combination of improper maintenance(literally left a part off the landing gear) and overloading the plane, then eating a landing light before losing control and not really a design safety issue?

 

Good things are rarely cheap. The Space Shuttle turbopump could drain a pool in a matter of seconds. Still a good engine.

And those failures were tire issues or improper maintenence as well. The Concordes tires did have issues but otherwise it was a very safe and overengineered plane.
