Airliners, or airliners, or airliners, or airliners, or airliners, or airliners. Airliners are the principal means of commercial airline transport. They are predominantly used for long-haul flights between major cities with many passengers. The largest airlines in the world operate their entire fleet on a single type of aircraft.
Airliners are typically powered by two or four jet engines and have a single aisle running from the front to the back of the aircraft with a maximum capacity of up to 800 passengers. Most airliners also have a smaller number of economy seats available for low-cost carriers like Ryanair and easyJet which compete with full-service airlines and legacy carriers on price rather than comfort.
The first airliner was invented in 1917 by Boeing which produced over 1,000 aircraft between then and 1930. In 1930s other companies started to produce their own designs such as Lockheed Martin’s Constellation series that were used throughout World War II until Boeing developed its own models during World War II with production beginning after 1945.
Airliners.net is the biggest and most popular aviation site on the Internet. Our community of users includes airline crew members, airline management, airplane fans, air travelers, aviation photographers, aircraft enthusiasts and avid airline fans.
The site was founded in 1995 by Johan Lundgren as “Airliners: The Ultimate Aviation Database”, with a focus on collecting information about commercial aircraft. Over time it has developed into a vibrant community with its own news blog and photo gallery.
To this day Airliners.net maintains a strong focus on being the largest database of commercial aircraft information in the world. It features over 100 000 detailed photos of airliners from all over the world, including 20000+ photos of over 3000 airlines, past and present. It also features detailed specifications for almost every airliner operating today or that has ever flown commercially.

All the major airlines have a website where you can check flights and buy tickets. Some of us at Y Combinator are trying to build a better one. That’s it: just flights and tickets, but do it well.
The reason we’re doing this is that we think the current sites for buying airline tickets are bad. Actually, worse than bad: they’re confusing, hard to use, and full of prices that seem random. We’ve all had the experience of looking up a flight on Travelocity or Expedia or Orbitz, then going to the airline’s site and finding the same flight for $20 less. It doesn’t make any sense.
The reason is that there are three different kinds of price hidden in what looks like one price on the current sites. The first kind is the number you see when you look up a flight on an aggregator site like Travelocity or Expedia. These numbers are not necessarily wrong, but they’re not as meaningful as they look because they don’t reflect all the taxes and fees tacked onto airplane tickets by governments and airlines. The second kind is what’s actually charged by the airline itself if you buy a ticket through its site (or call center), which includes taxes and fees but may be different from what
There are some interesting things about commercial aviation, but one that is not obviously interesting is how hard it is to book a flight.
Airlines have a new and improved way to make you miserable: They’re taking something that’s just not that hard, and making it unnecessarily complicated.
It’s not just that the Web sites are bad. The search engine Kayak has some good ones; they let you compare routes and prices with a few clicks. If Kayak can do it right, why can’t the airlines? Well, because they don’t have to. Their customers don’t have any choice, so why should they care? (…)
Airplanes are so common now that it’s easy to forget how odd they are. In a few decades they completely transformed the way people think about distance and travel.
For thousands of years, travel was difficult and dangerous, and most people never ventured very far from where they were born. Then suddenly, in the twentieth century, it became easy. It was as if everyone’s horizons had been simultaneously pushed back by hundreds of miles.
This transformation happened because of airplanes, but not just because airplanes made traveling faster. Before airplanes, the fastest thing on earth was a train; yet trains didn’t make the world seem any smaller. The reason is that trains didn’t change what it took to get around within a city or town. You still had to walk or take a horse-drawn carriage. That meant if you wanted to travel somewhere, you generally had to go through your hometown first: from your house to the railroad station, then from the station in your destination to wherever you were going there.
Airplanes changed this fundamentally. For the first time you could get off a plane in a distant city and then immediately start doing business or sightseeing without having to check into a hotel first. Nowadays we take this for granted; but at one time it would have
