You're kidding?! That is so very clearly an Airbus win. Pull forward again, start the donkeys and go.

Gosh, I remember FICO from the 1970s - humungous CRTs with multicoloured keyboards.

I wasn't quoting FR24, but HAL's WebTrak system, where up to yesterday the BA295 wasn't shown with an F suffix. But, sure enough, today's is - I stand corrected.

I dont understand this argument - both types have composite Elevators and they are wrecked on both aircraft.

The Air New Zealand repatriation flights to FRA have all been returning with flight numbers in the 6000 range.

BA also have the suffix D for Delayed. Saw this Feb when we were delayed out of CPT until the following day. The usual rotation used the 042 number and we were 042D.

Qualified pilots are welcomed to make observations about flying the plane, or not, should they deem it to be unairworthy resulting from damage. Qualified maintenance technicians are welcome to make observations about repair methods following damage.

Though nowadays it's more common for a flight delayed from the previous day to be identified with a Y (for yesterday's) suffix. Here's an example, also from February:



ATC callsign in this instance was Speedbird 42 Delta. Go figure.
