Are there any aviators out there? I've a quick question (or, actually, a multitude of questions!)! I'm writing a story that deals with a transcontinental flight from Denver, Colorado, to New York, New York. The things I wish to ask are...
1) One wouldn't really fly a four-engined jet (like an Airbus 340 or a Boeing) for a trip so short-distanced, would they? Is that even normal? Are there any four-engined jets you would use for a trip such as this, or is that totally uncalled for? :p
2) If you wouldn't use the abovementioned jet, which model would one generally usually use for this flight? :D
3) On a flight from Denver to New York, generally about how many hours would it take to reach your destination?
Thank you very much for your time and patience! ^-^ Thank goodness for communities like this! xD
