Airlines schedule about 5.5 hours of flying time for an A320 Airbus to fly from Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles International Airport. Airlines schedule about 4.5 hours of flying time for the reverse direction. The distance between these airports is about 2,300 miles. They allow about 0.4 hour for takeoff and landing.
a. From this information, estimate (to the nearest 5 mph) the average wind speed the airlines assume in making their schedule.
b. What average airplane speed (to the nearest 5 mph) do the airlines assume in making their schedule?
