I agree and I use it often, but that doesn't mean having VNAV/Managed work in heading mode wouldn't be a nice feature. It would have been helpful on many arrivals in AMS. Plus, pretty much every time I touch the V/S knob, the Captain freaks out...then goes on about how this isn't the 737, blah blah blah. Then when he gets a short notice restriction, rather than going to V/S, he scrambles through the 12 step process, fix info, abeam, pull for heading, etc... Then is full boards and speeding up when he figures out we are way above the path.

I’m not on an Airbus aircraft but this somehow seems to translate to always depending on the gnomes that work behind the panel (no matter the aircraft), instead of backing up the “PFM” with basic mental math and getting back to “basics” in the heat of the moment. Not that I’ve ever done that

You're always 3 clicks from a very nice hand flying airplane... that autotrims.

Looks like Embraer isn't as willing a dance partner as Boeing had hoped...

Yeah, Embraer wasn’t that impressed with the Boeing product line either...

So, AeroMexico could order UP TO 60 CSeries and potentially start to receive them in 2018 IF the tariffs hold up and Delta forgoes its 2018 Montreal production slots. Fortunately, sounds like Delta would wait for domestic production out of Mobile.

Article about potential AeroMexico CSeries order here:

If the tariffs are upheld (and they will), AeroMexico will absolutely take delivery of those aircraft. You know Ed has had this strategy in his back pocket ever since the lawsuit. Boeing WILL NOT lose this lawsuit. Way too much lobbying money and influence in Washington to lose.

The A350 manuals absolutely suck. You could throw out about 400 pages (I am not kidding) of the Vol 2 and wouldn't miss anything essential.
