#DFWAirport to begin runway rehabilitation project Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport will begin a major infrastructure project to rebuild one of its busiest runways. The project for the refurbishment of Runway 17-Center/35-Center will begin on May 24 with a partial closure, which will still allow the southern portion of the runway to be used during daylight hours. Full closure of the runway will begin in August, with completion of the project slated for December. “This runway work is a critical need for DFW Airport, and the first major step in our ten-year plan to modernize infrastructure across the Airport,” said Khaled Naja, executive vice president of Infrastructure and Development at DFW Airport. “We’ve taken a long look at our 44-year old facilities and have developed a comprehensive plan to address the upcoming work on runways, taxiways, aircraft ramps, roadways and bridges over the next few years. We’re grateful to our partners in the industry and the community who helped us put together a plan that minimizes the impact to our customers and our neighbors.” DFW has worked with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and its airline partners to reduce the time required to replace the center third of the runway, utilizing new construction techniques and taking advantage of seasonal air traffic patterns. DFW has six other runways that will allow airlines to continue operating a full schedule of flights. Traveling customers should not experience significant delays due to the closure.
Before the end of 2018, DFW will have replaced a section of the runway about 6000 feet long and 50 feet wide, reaching a depth of more than three feet of sub-base, cement-treated base and concrete. #Boeing#Airbus#airport#airplane#aviation#avgeek#aviation4u#aviationdaily#aviationlovers#planespotting#megaplane#megaaviation#Pilot#Pilotlife#Crew#Crewlife#Groundstaff#Groundstafflife

#AirFrance : sixth Boeing 787-9 has been grounded for weeks now A brand new Boeing 787-9 has been grounded for weeks now at #ParisCDGairport over a long dispute between Air France pilots and their management. The French airline is suffering: next to losing around €300 million due to the many strikes, Jean-Pierre Janaillac, its CEO, left the company.
At the start of May, Air France’s newest Boeing 787-9 rolled out of the Boeing factory in Seattle, but didn’t perform any commercial duties yet. Air France is considering to lease the aircraft to competitor Air Austral, in order to avoid a further monthly loss of €2,5 million.
The airline is also looking into the possibilities to delay all future Boeing 787-9 deliveries due to lack of instructors to train their Boeing 777 pilots for the new aircraft. An agreement on pilot training ended on 30 April 2018, and a new agreement couldn’t be reached yet due to the current social climate.
In a statement Air France strongly denounced the current crisis, the new 787-9 aircraft supposed to be a symbol of the “new Air France“, but unfortunately turned into a symbol of the “social malaise“. #Boeing#Airbus#airport#airplane#aviation#avgeek#aviation4u#aviationdaily#aviationlovers#planespotting#megaplane#megaaviation#Pilot#Pilotlife#Crew#Crewlife#Groundstaff#Groundstafflife

#LufthansaGroupairlines introduce new economy “Light” fare on #NorthAmericanroutes New fare with carry-on luggage bookable as of summer 2018
Add one piece of luggage or request a seat reservation on an individual basis
Successful test phase on routes between Scandinavia and North America
As of summer 2018, Lufthansa Group passengers will be able to book a so-called Economy “Light” fare on routes to North America served by Lufthansa, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Austrian Airlines. As the basic rate, the new fare is the least expensive option for price-conscious passengers only travelling with carry-on luggage and who do not require any ticket flexibility. For an additional fee, passengers will be allowed to add one piece of luggage or request a seat reservation on an individual basis. Meals and drinks will continue to be served to passengers on board free of charge.
Lufthansa has been testing a Light fare since October 2017 on selected routes between Scandinavia and North America. Passengers can buy a basic rate with carry-on luggage on flights between Sweden, Denmark, Norway and selected North American destinations.
In 2015, the Lufthansa Group Airlines introduced a Light fare on their European routes. The various air fare options mainly differ with respect to the free baggage allowance, seat reservations as well as the possibilities to cancel or rebook flights. Standard features of all fares include the flight, carry-on luggage weighing up to 8 kg, a snack and drinks on board, a fixed seat assignment at check-in as well as bonus and status miles. #Boeing#Airbus#airport#airplane#aviation#avgeek#aviation4u#aviationdaily#aviationlovers#planespotting#megaplane#megaaviation#Pilot#Pilotlife#Crew#Crewlife#Groundstaff#Groundstafflife

A primeira manifestação do Airbus A300 foi em 1973, quando Omar Fontana anunciou a compra deles, com financiamento direto da Airbus. Mas forças políticas impediram a empresa de seguir a compra, felizmente o tempo provou que era muita aeronave para a Transbrasil. Foi apenas em 1980 que chegou os dois primeiros A300, versão B4, a serem operados aqui, nas cores da Cruzeiro do Sul. Silenciosa, econômica e espaçosa, conquistou a simpatia do público e a Varig, dona da Cruzeiro, decidiu ela mesma incorporar duas dessas aeronaves no ano seguinte. Lembremos que a Airbus não era esta potência que é hoje, tanto que o modelo A300 era simplesmente chamado de Airbus. Em 1982 foi a vez da Vasp incorporar estas aeronaves, mas da versão B2K, pois a Varig fez lobby junto ao DAC que a empresa não precisava de aeronaves com muito alcance, uma vez que seu mercado era doméstico. Lobbies à parte, a operação dos A300 na Varig-Cruzeiro foi até 1989, quando foram vendidos para Air Jamaica e Japan Air System. Na Vasp, a carreira foi mais longa e voltou a ser a maior aeronave da empresa após a saída dos MD-11. Encerrou sua carreira na empresa de forma melódica, abandonados e canibalizados até o fim das operações da Vasp, em 2005. Dois modelos chegaram a vir para o Brasil, um nas cores da MTA, mas que nunca realizou voos com ele, e a Sterna, que perdeu sua única aeronave em um pouso em Recife.
