I have no problem with that, but there are more, larger one's now. My point is that no matter how slight the risk, it compromises safety and the airlines must be aware of this but still trot out the safety is our first priority line when it suits them.

One of these days there'll be an incident and half the pax will be too p*ssed to get off safely

SWBKCB...

...this was a return to stand. Therefore no alcohol had been served on the flight. This was all down to "pre-loading" at home, on the bus on the way to the airport, and at the airport.

There's no hypocrisy involved here - on the average flight Jet2.com operate a 2 drinks per person policy, and that is invariably 330ml cans of beer, 175ml bottles of wine, etc. They have drunk way, way more than that before they get near the aircraft.

This is true, but it will be down to the drinking before and at the airport, not on the aircraft. We just deal with the mess created by others.

At least get your facts right before spouting off.

I wonder which city in Europe has the most un pleasant prison's if one found it necessary to divert and off load an unruly passenger whilst en-route? Tirana perhaps, though I always thought Bucharest and Sofia might be quite rough.

Unfortunately we live in a country in which getting so drunk/high that you can not control your anger seems to be the norm for a growing number of our population.

I am always amazed how many people are in the bar at half past five in the morning at the airport, I can not think of many other things that I find so un-appealling as an alcoholic drink at that time of the day.

It's all peer pressure and male bravado - I've seen groups of lads getting out of a minibus outside the airport at 4:30am, all with a can of beer in their hand all trying to 'prove themselves' as men to one another.

Will 1 B757 less make a difference to their summer schedule? I know they had some standby, but may need to lease another aircraft for cover? Or source a replacement 757, or perhaps another 2nd hand B738?

Ladies and gents, I think all this speculation about the fate of Alpha India is premature. How about sitting tight and seeing what occurs ? I don't know about anyone else but I haven't seen any photographs of the damage to the aircraft, so on I'm in no position to come out with glib statements pertaining to buffing out, unpressurised flights to the breaker's yard and so on.

She flies into LBA tomorrow evening and appears to be staying for a couple of weeks at least. In other news, 'HY arrives from BFI at 0630 tomorrow.

I have seen photos and it wont buff out and it appears the pressure bulkhead is involved. I hope to be proved wrong, but when the value of the airframe versus the cost of repair is considered well who knows what the outcome will be?

Could be a job for Sycamore at MME then selling on the spare parts to Iceland Air.

Seems to have been delayed - no sign of it leaving Boeing Field.

Window seats Boeing 737-800

Does anyone know which rows do not have windows on the jet2 Boeing 737-800's? I'd be grateful for any advice!

Not sure on the LS ones specifically but there is only one windowless row on a 73H and that's around 11/12.

Row 11 is the windowless row on the 738 (Y189 config).

Thank you!
Is there a reason you have 2 missing windows on the left and one on the right but only one row is without windows?
