Could change as EBC is stuck in Tls with grazed cabin windows

I flew as a passenger from Sydney to Melbourne recently on a Qantas A330 and was seated close to the rear. All the way in the cruise we were swaying gently left to right.

I mentioned this snaking to a flight attendant and he said he sometimes gets sick in the rear galley. I suggested that he notify this to the Captain as it seems to be a yaw damper problem.

I have since heard this is a traite of Airbus aircraft. Any further info from our panel of experts?

I know the drought's been bad but didn't know that graziers were resorting to rendering aircraft u/s! ;)

Ok it looks like the grammar nazi's have got me again.

What I meant is the cabin windows are scratched beyond acceptable limits and are being replaced by Airbus.

It's a plastic theme park ride....next time look carefully as the whole fuselage aft of the wing roots corkscrews as you rotate...

...and if you want more fun...sit in the forward cabin and listen to the nose gear rattle and bang just before V1.

Then after a few years bits start falling off...

It doesn't fart under the bed covers yet but Airbus is working on a mod.

Happy bussing.
