747 already benefits from area ruling to a degree, part of the reason it has a higher max cruise speed than most airliners

Boeings first serious studies of transonic airliners with pretty extreme area ruling came during the 70s after the 747 though

According to airline survey, most airlines do want such an airplane to open new routes.
The main concept here is to overfly hubs, allowing profitable operation of flights between city pairs with relatively little traffic demand for instance IND-MAN

IND-MAN would count as a new route even if the airline already served both destinations.

And how much demand would there be for IND-MAN direct when more frequent (and probably cheaper) flights are available via Toronto?
>>
>>1084744
- Yes, the whole idea behind Boeing's move is to open new route.
- No matter what's you destination and origin, dorect flight are almost always more expensive, but people still fly directly

>>1084703
Actually, The airplane Boeing is proposing most probably won't have enough range to fly from New Zealand to most part of South America

And why exactly do you think that is?
>>
>>1084621
Not in London but in my community Muslims refuse to vaccinate their kids because they think it will give them autism. (srs). This has led to outbreaks of measles in the community which should realistically never happen in a civilised society. Cab drivers refuse to give you a ride if you have alcohol which is an issue when most cab drivers are Muslim. Cashiers refuse to ring up your purchase if you have pork products. Members are being radicalised and going off to the Middle East to fight for ISIS. Only a matter of time before they strike at home and not in another country.
>>
>>1084621
Look at London.
Look at French Muslim-controlled districts, where women without burkas are not welcome, and where women entering a bar will be asked to leave.
Their culture is different from the western nations. It's not a problem if they are minority, but it's a problem when this minority thrives to become a majority. And they do.

Yeah, it's going to be a mess downtown when they kick all the buses out of the tunnel. Good thing I reverse commute out to Everett.

I'm eagerly awaiting the opening of North Link, since the bus-rail integration at UW station is awful. Things will be pretty much set once the ST2 portions of Link get built out. They're also gonna have more BRT-lite "Rapid"Ride routes by then too

Looks like someone unfamiliar with road bikes slapped a bunch of leftover parts on an old frame. I'd say it's worth somewhere in the $300-400 range, but only to someone interested in making changes who understands the value of parts

I'm doing my first bike tour in a week, it will last for up to 1.5 months. This will be the most noteworthy thing I've ever done in my life. I've never travelled before so I'm a bit nervous. I just started riding recreationally last week. What advice can you give to me?
I will camp out in nature and wash myself and my clothes in lakes. I'm not sure how I'll this will happen so I'll practice a bit beforehand. I've read that dishwashing soap is the most multi-purpose soap, should I bring this instead of a detergent? What tools and spare parts for the bike should I bring with me? What clothes should I use?

>turn left onto a mostly quiet road, except for pic related
>he's about 100 feet behind me by the time I'm in his lane
>lays on the horn, I guess because I slowed him down
>give him the finger as he passes (inb4 it's my fault for provoking him)
>he stops his car in the road in front of me and gets out, starts yelling at me
>bike around him and turn right at the stoplight up ahead
>he catches up to me and throws his starbucks drink at me

Called the police non-emergency line afterward to let them know about this road rage incident, but they probably won't do anything about it.

You fucked up, anon. Just go on your way. When you don't react people will get more frustrated (which is fun to see) but the situation will not escalate.

Don't know why you retards are so immature - seriously, enjoy life and enjoy cycling. Don't let other people's emotional garbage get to you. Life is too short for such petty bs.

Just smile, pedal on, and - in the back of you head - just recognize that these kinds of people (i.e. cagers, people in a hurry) have shitty lives.
>>
ok this aint a troll post as others in this thread but... fucking first world people that dont know how to coexsit with other human beings in real life.

2 real options in this case:
1- when a dude like this one irrationally honks, you can just ignore the shit and let him drive away. give him thumbs up pisses them more or leaves them without reaction (waving hello is also good). thing is..you dont let them get in yur brain, and you dont use energy with this situation that will prob repeat a lot of times. zen mode this is.
2- you decide to confront the dude. before this analize the situation and see if can get fucked up or not. what you did (finger shit) + getting in front of him after that is completly retarded. cause the finger doesnt do him any real harm and then you expose yourself. dumb. so what you can do for instance is go to his right side slowly, break a mirror and then just turn the oposite way or brake left or go somewhere the car cant go. dude gets pissed off you are ok.

oh and fuck the law and police. who the fuck actually relies on them. fuck em, again and again.

by the way there is a third option going to his side and asking politly why he honked. this is usually useless as cagers tend to not rationalize to well. they dont really want to hear arguments or law trafics or human logic. fuck that.

now grow up and fuck the cops. fucking first world people are making this world shiet lol. but maybe youre young and thats ok, we are all retarded at some point. cheers out hommie.

The first tower of the CIBC Square (formerly Bay Park Centre) broke ground today.

The first phase of the complex will be the new home of the Union Station Bus Terminal and possibly the Toronto Coach Terminal. It is expected to be completed in 2020.

The construction of the second tower will start at a later date, it will be built on the site of the existing bus terminal. It is expected to be completed in 2023.

In addition, both towers will be joined by a park on top of the tracks.
