Incomplete List[edit]

There should be many more twin-jet airliners like CRJ, or ERJ, or TU, etc —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jianqing01 (talkcontribs) 10:11, 23 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Take a Look[edit]

I am sure that if you wanted to do some research, you would find some twin-jet airliners produced by the Tupolev aviation bureau, probably by the hundreds, and there was definitely the French-made Caravelle airliner that was made back in the 1950s and 60s - the pioneer in the idea of short-haul, medium-sized jet airliners (much smaller than a Boeing 707, a DC-8, or a DeHavilland Comet. Otherwise, if you want to eliminate the historical relics, then eliminate the BAC-111. (talk) 07:01, 28 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

English syntax[edit]

Somebody who really knows the subject needs to edit the article, especially the Efficiency section, for English syntax. It really does not sound like standard English, and I do not understand the exact intended meaning. Mamarazzi (talk) 15:24, 2 June 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Great Circle Route[edit]

In the paragraph 'Introduction to transoceanic flights', there is a link to the page Great Circle Route which is a false redirect to a different subject.

If the term is real, I think the redirect should be removed and the page should be created or rewritten. (talk) 22:21, 24 July 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Please!!! Someone correct or delete this page of garbage.

1. I arrived at it by clicking on a link called "twin-engine". That can mean piston, turboprop, jet or...if you really want to get kinky, mixed-power like the Ryan Fireball. (One piston engine, one turbojet engine.) At the very least the re-direct is wrong.

2. West coast to Hawaii is by NO means the longest ETOPS route, it is only 2700nm. Given that Santiago (SCEL) to Sydney (YSSY) is 6100nm and requires a whopping 330 minutes of ETOPS approval, I can only surmise that basic research is beyond the capability of the author.

I am not familar enough with editing / correcting entries myself, but please, someone help me out here. Thanks.

What are the qualifying distinctions that define a "twin-jet"?[edit]

Unless there are some additional attributes, I think twin-jet is a distinction without merit. It means so little it's a waste of time to even legitimize the term.

The significance is in the history, which the article covers. - BilCat (talk) 21:56, 29 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

English Electric Lightning[edit]

Was the stacked twin-engine design of this British interceptor jet fighter literally unique ? (talk) 05:28, 10 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
