Is EK doing any advertisements for their LA and SF flights to Dubai? I've been looking around the local networks and CNN/Fox haven't seen anything yet. I doubt many even know where Dubai is.

Bigger seperation should fix all that. You'll know you're behind it due to the "super" callsign instead of "heavy". Also, visual approaches behind it are prohibited.

The A380 is flying for the regionals now? Wow, I thought it was bad when the 747 popped up here.

Lets see just thought for those that fly into SFO and LAX for our jobs, that this would be a cool thing to see. JEEZ V1, have a bad overnight or something?

Heaven forbid pilots still enjoy airplanes. It's ok to be a nerd every once and awhile...

I love planes just as much as the next pilot...but really put this thread in hanger talk or maybe the major section...or wait there is a foreign section also that might work...by the way when the 380 flew into msp I was all over it

I will agree with Past V1, the regionals section is not the place for this discussion. There was another thread about it going into JFK last week, could even tack this one onto that.

I was an airplane nerd today.

I drive by Frankfurt International on my way to and from my little army airfield and in the morning was overflown by a Lufthansa A300. Great timing, very cool. Then on my way home I was overflown by a FedEx A300 and a second Lufthansa A300 (SFO formation approach style).

I'll be all over Frankfurt when the A380 comes in again.

Oh, and y'all are right, this needs to be moved to Hangar Talk. Where is a mod when you need one?
