Once Adelaide goes daily will it remain a 2 day layover?? based on the schedule the layover time would be something like 24hrs and 30 mins... hardly enough to operate a 13hr night flight back to dxb. It would be a shorter layover than even JFK which is already criminal...
well I guess it depends on how just how big they are.You just have to refuse to do two 14 hour flight separated by less then 24 hours off.enough is enough.when is everyone going to learn? they will try it on you if you let them and if you show you are not going to say anything next it will be 18 hours lay over then 12 etc etc.just start the ASRs flowing and I mean every single time you go flying and feel like crap because of their criminal rules.The only reason the brazil Argentina shuttle got changed is because their legal team realized they would get screwed in court.same deal with the old MRU 12 hour layover crap.dont whine on PPRuNe about it.do something about it.
777 is welcome to Adelaide, direct Brisbane is upgrading to the flagship A380 in the near future. The extra seats will be welcome to all those staff who struggle with seat availability on this busy route.
EK can't fly to Mexico City it requires skill, dexterity and inevitably one must disconnect the autopilot due to frequent ATC changes. If you've ever seen what a typing pool looks like in the mid 70s this would be similar to the average EK pilot attempting to "fly" into MEX.
we super Pilots flew there already 10 years ago, where were you 10 years ago?
If I remember correctly, I was introducing my new bride to the delights of station life in my new married quarters. I can confidently predict however Goretex that after spending 4 years shuttling various Moscowvites between Vunukovo, Sheremetevo, UUDD and all points on the compass, 3-4 times a week in our wonderful Falcon, I have a fairly good idea of how Moscow and Russia works. Sure you guys have been going there in the 4 holer bus, but like I say, I can't wait to read the ASR's
Pretty sad on your behalf if you are keen for incidents to occur.
Yep it would be wouldn't it, which is why I said ASR's rather than MOR's or accident reports. And FWIW, I'm not in the least bit concerned about our guys/girls, its ATC and the other operators that will cause the issues.
Please put the 380 on the Brisbane sector, impossible to get seats on the payload restricted crippler and today departed with 22 spare seats!!! Make over a million more revenue, carry 150 more pax in greater comfort and keep everyone happy.
