  Airliner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Therefore, most regional airliners are equipped with lavatories and have a flight attendant to look after the in-flight needs of the passengers.
As airliners are very expensive, most are leased out for long periods of time (typically from 20 to 40 years) and very few go back into service after a long lease is up because evolving aerospace technology leaves older airliners unable to compete against newer machines that can be operated at a lower cost.
An airliner may have several classes of seating: first class, business class, and/or economy class (which may be referred to as coach class, and sometimes has a separate "premium" section with more legroom and amenities).

 Jet airliner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most long-distance air travel is operated with jet aircraft, although the fleets of many airlines include a number of smaller turboprop types, typically used for shorter flights to provincial towns, island communities, or airports where topography or adjoining development limits the runway length.
The first jet airliner was the de Havilland Comet which first flew in 1949 and entered service in 1952.
In the 1960s, when jet airliners were powered by slim, low-bypass engines, many aircraft used the rear-engined configuration, such as the Boeing 727, Douglas DC-9, BAC One-Eleven, Hawker Siddeley Trident, Ilyushin Il-62 and Vickers VC-10.

Many airliners have also been modified for government use as "VIP" transports and for various military functions such as airborne tankers (for example, the Vickers VC-10, Lockheed L1011, Boeing 707), air ambulance (USAF/USN McDonnell-Douglas C-9), reconnaissance (Embraer ERJ 145, Saab 340, Boeing 737), as well as for troop-carrying roles.
The airliner market is currently dominated by two main companies: Airbus (based in Western Europe) and Boeing (based in the United States).
These are typically supplied with oxygen by means of a device called a chemical oxygen generator.

 The Jetmakers - THE HEARTBREAK MARKET: AIRLINERS
Thus, for operating and safety reasons the four-pistonengine airliner was a natural basic type for almost all commercial air transportation, and it represented the main market in the postwar years as conversion from twin-engine airliners took place.
Sales for piston airliners were high; a powerful piston compound engine became available, and with it both companies launched new stretched versions of their piston airliners.
And the giant airliner undoubtedly contributed to the death of the SST, for it was cheaper and it offered possible solutions to some of the pollution and congestion problems arising in air travel.

 Six may have been alive as airliner crashed - The Boston Globe
ATHENS -- Initial autopsies have indicated that at least six of the 121 people aboard the Cypriot airliner that crashed Sunday were alive, but not necessarily conscious, when it hit a hillside while on autopilot, a coroner said yesterday.
A passenger list showed there were 20 children under the age of 16 on board, although the airline initially reported as many as 48 children were passengers.
The airliner's pilots had reported air conditioning system problems to Cyprus air traffic control after takeoff, and Greek state television quoted Cyprus's transport minister as saying the plane had had decompression problems.

 HistoryLink Essay:Boeing 707 Turbojet Airliner -- A Snapshot History
In 1958, Boeing’s first jet airliner, the 707, proved to be the vehicle that finally changed the commercial side of the ledger from red to fl ink.
Piston engine airliners were profitable, the Comet saga indicated that more development was necessary, and the high cost of jet airliners and their required infrastructure all conspired against Boeing.
The first supersonic airliner was a Douglas DC-8-43 that dived past Mach one (a figure representing a very high rate of speed) during a test on August 21, 1961.

 Airline Pilots Security Alliance - Airliner Shootdown
In training drills in the Washington, DC area some time after the 9/11 attacks, the Air Force was unable to engage a “hostile” commercial airliner in time to prevent it from hitting a target in the Washington area when it departed a local airport.
If the hostile airliner is owned by an international carrier, diplomatic relations between countries would be rocked by such an act.
In the event of an Air Force pilot using a missile to shoot down a civilian airliner, it will be difficult to explain why his counterpart in the airliner was obstructed from having even a pistol to prevent the attack in the first place.

 BBC News | SCI/TECH | How hard is it to fly an airliner?
But obviously there are differences between the kind of flying done in a small plane in good visibility and the kind needed to move a modern airliner around the sky safely.
Someone who could fly a relatively small airliner like the Boeing 737 would find the controls of a bigger one like a 757, 767 or 777 familiar.
The skills needed to aim an airliner at a building would, of course, be far more basic.

 FBI Investigates Laser Beam Directed Into Airliner Cockpit
Interference with the flight of a commercial airliner is a felony with a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
Few airliner cockpits are fitted with coherent light detectors, so there is no way to verify an incoming light "beam" is in fact a laser.
In fact, it makes sense to me to first outfit some airliners with laser detectors (capable of recording intensity levels) just to see if in fact this is a real problem.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Airliner
An airliner is a large fixed-wing aircraft (an aeroplane/airplane) initially designed for the transport of paying passengers, and usually operated by an airline company (which owns or leases the aircraft).
While piston engines were common on propliners like the Douglas DC-3 until the beginning of the jet age, nearly all modern airliners are powered by turbine engines, either turbofans or turboprops, since they operate efficiently at much higher altitudes.
Well-known and memorable airliners history include the DC-3; the Concorde (operated 1976–2003, by two airlines only, British Airways and Air France, and capable of flying at twice the speed of sound); the Boeing 747 "jumbo jet" (from 1968 to 2005 the only airliner with two passenger decks); and the Boeing 707.

ATHENS, Greece – The co-pilot and a flight attendant were among dozens of people still alive when a Cypriot airliner plunged into the mountains north of Athens, the coroner said Tuesday, deepening the mystery over what incapacitated the flight carrying 121 people.
They said warnings should go off if an airliner suddenly loses pressure, and pilots are trained to immediately put their oxygen masks on and dive to about 12,000 feet, where there's enough oxygen for people to breathe.
The Cypriot airliner's pilots reported air conditioning system problems about a half-hour after takeoff, and Greek state TV quoted Cyprus' transport minister as saying the plane had decompression problems in the past.

But New Jersey National Guard Col. Thomas E. Griffin said that the airliner was never in danger and the F-16 pilots simply were trying to identify a plane that shouldn't have been in that sector.
A government official familiar with the case, speaking on condition of anonymity, said civilian air traffic controllers in New York cleared the airliner to fly through the area and were coordinating the movement with military air traffic controllers in Virginia Beach, Va., who handle military flights in the 5,600 square-mile area.
The F-16 pilot responded that he had the airliner in sight and was ''breaking off,'' the official said.
