I see now that it was a lot more than just "loosing #2" Thank you for all the details. In all my flying days I only experienced two flights where we "lost an engine" but it was just a case of loosing power for reasons not as critical as having the engine blow up. Thanks again for your very detailed reply.
I am not sure that all those miles were FLOWN. Perhaps he earned some miles from other activities like car rentals, online purchases, and just plain using credit cards.
Otherwise it would be preety hard to accumulate all those miles in the eleven months in question.
kind of interesting that the presentation of "the days of the 707" takes place in a DC-8!
of course they both are the same vintage....
How I miss those good "old days" when travelling was fun not a pain like it is now!
As I understand it Boeing is acting as a consultant, very different from a "joint venture" partner.
As far as the accident in Indonesia, lets wait for the completion of the investigation. Do not take the usual way out of blaming it on "pilot error" OK?
Good for Aeromexico! They are smart to stick with Boeing. Look what hapenned to Mexicana when they decided to fly "buses" instead of the Boeings that made them the first arline in Mexico in their time.
