To anyone who was worried: the American airline industry isn’t in as bad a shape as Donald Trump is making it out to be, who says that if he isn’t elected to be President, Boeing’s jobs are moving to China.
As a current New York City resident, I’m constantly barraged with warnings of “Don’t fly out of Newark, it sucks” only to hear a week later “Don’t fly out of JFK, it sucks” and then usually “Don’t fly out of Laguardia, it sucks.” All my options are bad. But there are those of us near little regional hubs that have it…
Airbus’ new driverless airborne taxi/gigantic drone concept looks great! It’s so cool to see a major air company work on what’s basically a flying car. Oh, wait, does this thing pass the two year test?
The Chinese demand for travel has skyrocketed in recent years, which has in turn increased the need for experienced pilots to fly the tourists to their destinations. Some airlines want more pilots badly enough that they are offering salaries of $300,000 and above to foreigners. That’s a lot better than you can do…
I hope you were lucky enough to catch the Perseid Meteor Shower last week. If you were watching it from the Spanish island of La Palma, a few of those streaks might have actually been these maniacs in wing suits.
Get to the airport. If you’re smart, you’d have printed your boarding passes at home. If you’re me, you queue up at the desk to check in, aware of the long lines and the long faces of the travelers around you. Get your bag on the belt, shuffle off to get through security. Remove your shoes and your dignity. X-ray. Put…
This is complete madness, but the guy as one good reason for doing it. Well, he has one good reason and a generous background of general lunacy.
The Boeing 747-400 Global SuperTanker can put out fires just about anywhere, carrying 19,200 gallons of fire suppressant at close to 600 MPH. It’s a heroic beast to behold, and now you can climb all over the entire thing with this complete and controllable virtual walkthrough.
On Saturday, Sheriff’s Deputies in Osceola County, Florida (of course) saw a helicopter buzz over route U.S. 192 low enough to nearly hit some street lamps. The cops didn’t take kindly to this, figured out where the helicopter was registered, went there and waited for it to land.
Today is going to be a bad day to fly. Following a power outage at its Atlanta headquarters early this morning, Delta Airlines has been in the grips of a massive computer system failure worldwide, leading the company to ground all departing flights.
Online mega-retailer Amazon.com is launching a fleet of 40 full-sized cargo jets to ship the immense quantity of crap we’re all buying on the site. The “Prime Air” flagship, a Boeing 767-300 christened Amazon One, makes its debut in Seattle today.
Early this morning an ASL Airlines Boeing 737-400 cargo plane skidded off a runway while landing at the Orio al Serio airport in Bergamo, Italy. The crew, composed of the captain and first officer, were not hurt. This could have ended a lot worse than it did.
I don’t know how any of your lives are going at the moment, but I’m pretty confident in saying that, whatever’s happening, you’re doing better than this poor pathetic Dutch guy, 41-year-old Alexander Cirk, who almost died while waiting ten days in a Chinese airport to meet a girl he’d been talking to online. Alex,…
Chemtrails are real. They are here. They are combating Zika. Chemtrails real. Real chemtrails. Chemicals. From planes. Plane chemicals. In the air. Over your head. Chemtrails. Chme. Trails. C. he. m. Tral. is.
A Boeing 777 crash landed earlier today at the Dubai International Airport, claiming the life of a fireman. The approximately 300 passengers, however, managed to escape without life-threatening injuries—and many grabbed their bags despite being screamed at by the crew to drop them and run.
Emirates Flight EK521, a Boeing 777 making an emergency landing at Dubai International Airport, burst into flames upon touching down earlier today. It’s not clear exactly what caused the incident, but none of the approximately 300 people on board were reportedly killed.
“And whatever you do, it’s going on Facebook,” the drunk passenger shouted. He is absolutely right about that.
Airlines lose and damage luggage all the time. But what if that luggage was your only way to get around? What if instead of misplacing a bag, the airline removed your ability to move about independently? That’s exactly what one airline did to my wife on a trip to Mexico two years ago.
