They were nice.
I guess they can’t convert them to two engines.
Use your Delta SkyMiles to go to the party:
My Delta FF card sill has the essence of my Republic number.
Best plane ever. Business class upstairs was the best.
I remember my first trip on it in 2003 with Cathay Pacific. Who knew 15 hours on a plane could be so good?!
And I remember when Republic bought out North Central Airlines.
First time I flew in a 747 was from Minneapolis. Damn, that was an impressive airplane!
They still build the 747.
Me too. Those were the daze may FRiend....
I would be much rather be on a large cruise ship than the 747, even if takes 3-4 days to sail from US to Europe.
Curve of the fuselage gives you a view ahead of the airplane....
They were nice.
and they were AMERICAN. I refuse to fly AIRBUS CATTLE CARS.
Want a nice ride, fly the Boeing DREAMLINER!
Message to Delta...if it ain’t Boeing,I ain’t going!
Same here! I always fly Boeing and love the Dreamliner. My late French husband refused to fly Airbus. Called their planes chicken coops or cattle cars. He loved Boeings.
The 787 and the A350 are the only two jumbos that I've never flown.I've flown the 747 more times than I can remember.Same goes for the DC10,L1011,767 and 777.I've flown the A340 once,the A380 three of four times and the A330 about a half dozen times...all because I had no choice.
IMO it's curious that your French husband disliked Airbus.Perhaps that's because he was a true blue American who just happened to have French blood...kinda like me:Irish blood,100% American! ;-)
