Since it's not a very recent picture, I would say that it doesn't represent the state of those lines now. [You can clearly see that it's an AAL MD-80. They retired the last ones in September 2019].

Sorry, for some reason the link isn't showing. Trying to work on it.

Edit: Unable to link the video. Incident occurred May 28th. Maybe someone else (more savvy than myself) can submit a link.

This kind of idiocy is going to deter many people from resuming air travel, as it has me. The industry is in enough difficulties as it is!

You have to factor in that even if load factors do look encouraging there are still far fewer daily rotations than pre Covid times.

That all depends on many factors. In this case I could arguably agree because of the close proximity of the runways and the fact there were landings on both. However, most major...

For goodness sake, it has already been explained above that the Cirrus was not on a first solo flight. The solo flight applied to the Cessna 172 who reported the chute deployment of the Cirrus.

OK, well I've heard of them and they've been in and out of my local airport almost daily since they acquired their 2 B747-400s. They have not failed any inspections.

Must have been. The only LGT on Monday was the 3301 a B744 from LAX to MST. Mind you, it did pass just south of LHR at 1850(L), albeit at FL370.

Do you mean all operators or just airlines? If you want every aeroplane (English spelling) that may not be so easy. Your best bet would be to consult individual national registers.

And I believe onwards to Abbotsford BC., to be converted to an air tanker capable of carrying just over 2600 gallons of retardant. They will (sadly) replace the airline's Convair 580 fleet.
