Maybe it will get them to sort out the taxiways and charts at MAN, its just awkward in that place.
Nice simple taxi like EHAM is what is needed.

Looks like the 738 came off worse. Nothing on the A320 a bit of speed tape won't fix. Germany 1 Spain Nil....

Hmmm, not so sure about that. That moving APU inlet is going to need more than speed tape before they can start the APU again. Aren't those wing-tip extensions (or whatever Mr Boeing calls them) relatively easy to replace?

Still, at least it appears Swampy didn't have anything to do with it.

slip and turn, what makes you think Rainboe was getting at you anyway? [No need to acknowledge.]

Chris Scott,
Me too, I thought you just took off them winglet thingies, made an entry in the log ("see MEL") and that settled it.

More for reverserunlocked:The picture aboved only shows the exit wounds on the Lufthansa A320. As the Futura winglets entered in to the LH A320 tail it was about four feet taler, and that is over halfway up the tail barrel. Even Gaffer tape can't fix that.
