Narrow Body Rule Question
« on: July 29, 2012, 12:09:15 PM »
This is in reference to where narrow body planes suffer a penalty for long flights...

Does it only apply to international flights?

There is less(/no?) penalty on "domestic long haul" flights according to what I read. For example US mainland to Hawaii.

The effects are different for domestics and intl flights. Basically you can fly longer sectors with smaller planes if it is a domestic route.

Will the EU be considered "Domestic" when it forms? Just curious if, say, F100's (and later E-Jets) to some destinations over 1400nm from AMS will become acceptable in 1997/98.

This explains how a 734 is flying phx to hnl.   2400nm.

I think the updates only cure the problem of B727, B757 and A320 on transatlantic with tech stop. Anything other than these is acceptable ;D

Correction HNL --> PHX is 2530nm....

Seriously, I would searching for 'Precious' if you crammed me and 161 other people on a 737 for a 7 hour and 15 minute flight.

But you would hop on US's 757-200 with no problem, I am sure  :laugh: that being said, the 737 Classics were never ETOPS certified, so this route, even if the plane did have the range IRL, would never happen.

Engines Turn or Pax Swim, eh?    I wasn't gonna go there... but yes, you're right.  A little too much unexpected headwind and this flight suddenly becomes a rescue mission.
