Seems like it would be fairly easy to bump the next lever in addition to the one you were trying to shut down, especially if you had large hands - or arthritis, for that matter. Not saying that's...

Anyone know how close together the switches are? Could they have reached for one and accidentally hit both switches? Or they feathered the wrong engine, then realized their error and feathered the...

These planes have been sitting for months. Now they're being moved to a storage facility. Is that an indication that the operators have gotten the word that they won't be flying any time soon?

The government bailed out the car companies, I imagine they'd be just as quick to bail out Boeing.

I didn't say it was ok. Regardless of the safety implications, it looks stupid. That said, I'd still be thrilled at the extra room. :)

There's two ways of looking at that. As SLF, I would have been delighted to have been in the row behind or the adjoining seat. As I see it, the odds of crashing are probably one in a million, whereas...

It would actually make sense to not require a degree.

First, if a pilot has a degree, then they're going to have more employment opportunities than someone who doesn't, and they'll be less likely...

But do we know which bounce started the leak? It appeared the fire started on the second (third?), but which hit actually did the initial damage?

If the first bounce poked a hole in the fuel tanks and started a leak, would trying to go around have made things worse (would it have caught fire in the air, rather than on the ground)?

It really does seem this would be the ideal solution, for a number of reasons. Not only is it safer in an emergency, but it's going to make it easier and faster to get through security. I can...

If the first bounce caused a leak, perhaps when they bounced the second time, they scraped the runway and sparks caught the leak on fire?
