Just watched it and I never knew that it was dangerous to fly trans sonic. Also good to know how to save fuel and not have to make an emergancy landing. But I think I will be riding the jet streams when possible

Wow. I just finished watching that video and came here only to find this thread.

PS I’m now using the 787 for all long haul flights ;)

Thank you, very interesting! Never knew about that transonic range effect.

You can use the A388 as it has 8:1 ratio of air going right through. However you can only really take off at airports with 3400M/11,150 ft runways

I loved this video and Wendover Productions. Ultra informative and great for people with huge amounts of curiosity about aviation.
