And I thought the 717 was small and out-of-proportion for a commuter jet. :shock: Then again, I was looking at the old model...

Ahh, the Baby Bus.

That's mostly made for European city pairs isn't it? Seems like it's meant for short distances and bigger runways, not like regional American service. I can't think of any US airlines that operate it? though there must be a few.

British Airways regularly flies several A318s configured in all business class to New York, with a stopover in Shannon to complete US Immigration regulations.

Well, that's one flight I'd like to take if I win the lottery! Not quite Concorde, but still pretty luxurious, I should imagine.

Well, yeah, it's Business class, of course it's luxurious :wink:

Both flights operate daily out of London City Airport, use the old Concorde flight numbers and callsigns without the Concorde parts (so when ATC contacts them it would just be Speedbird 001 and Speedbird 002 rather than Speedbird Concorde 001 and Speedbird Concorde 002,) have in-flight Wifi (allowing you to browse the web, send email and do other stuff while en route) and are mainly targeted at business travelers.

You can read a trip report from someone who flew the route here.

I thought the stopover was only on the way out of London and it was so the A318 could lift off the runway at London City safely, so it couldn't carry fuel for the whole trip, and had to stop somewhere to take on the field to get to New York. And then inbound, it would have the same amount of fuel anyways so it wouldn't matter.

Well, the TR was just for the route out of LCA which does have the stopover in Shannon for US immigration and refueling. BA319-131 (the author of the TR) didn't mention anything about fuel beyond that.

I keep meaning to go visit MHTG again now that we have a much more flyable AA 757. It's quite tricky to do in the MD-81 or 733, although I think part of that is the unrealistic terrain around it.

Speaking of the 757, any of you British folks miss British Airways' 757s yet? Here's a video of the absolutely very definitely final landing of a BA 757 in Heathrow:

Oh, I miss them - the main thing that I found annoying s that I never flew on one! I still see the odd 757, though. There are plenty being operated by various charter airlines and so on.

Oh, and QANTAS have lost their patience with Rolls Royce. Read all about it! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-11895106
