I'll just fling my bag into that convenient overhead baggage locker to the right of the door before anyone notices how big it is.

To help passengers get on board faster, Ryanair announce that they will sell 190 tickets for each 189-seater plane.

As practice for when they (as civilian commuters) will have to board slam-door trains that are already moving, crew are required to join their aircraft only when it has started taxiing.

I wish that chap would stop shouting "Come in, no 5, your time is up!" - it's quite worrying enough flying one of these and I don't want anyone telling me that my time is up.

The Nav is the last one on board because:
a. He eats all the pies, and is a little overweight;
b. He had to get the clearance for Clarence, and
c. Get the Vector for the Victor.

(Fabulous photo, by the way!)

The Elsan in the Victor was way better than the toilets recently installed in the QRA by MPBW - as evidenced after a Dining In curry night...
