Yawn. Boeing gave the 747 some of the niceties that the 777 has had for a couple of decades. Still puny engines compared to the GE90s on the 777F. 🤣

I'd rather have four of them than two, and I believe the 400's had the V bars as an option.

Can someone explain to me what's wrong with V-Bars? This dual-cue stuff with its "this is what I think you're going to do so I'm going to move the cue over here and make you wind up looking drunk", why, it's HAL 9000! "I'm sorry. I can't do that, Boris." GO TO HELL, MACHINE! *wanders off muttering*

I mean I admit I'm new to all of this, but if it ain't broke, etc etc.

The dual cues FD on the 400 is extremely accurate, especially on an ILS.

Love how the guy implied flying boxes is not all that different from flying people. I guess an iPhone is as important as your grandma.

What a stupid comment, and typical unfounded elitism from a pax pilot. No one is more important on any airplane than the people flying it. If the people flying care less about their own life, what makes you think they will care more about the people behind them?
