Itís an interesting idea, but itís hard to see the 380 ending up schlepping around Africa or parts of Asia like you see old 747s, Mad Dogs and 737s doing now. I just think itís too complex and...

There is a school of thought that the 380ís time may still come as airports get more slot/ gate constrained and the only way forward is bigger aircraft. That was the thinking in the late 80s when the...

Pity they donít go a step further and dig out some of the old liveries of airlines that were absorbed into BA, but I guess theyíd rather sweep those old ghosts under the carpet. Some of the airlines...

She sure is a beautiful lady. Isnít she quite cramped and rather noisy from the flight deck though? As much as an A380 can only be loved by its own mother I imagine the flight deck is a much more...

Meanwhile, hasnít Cityjet just parked the last SSJ? Comes to something when your jet is outclassed by CRJs and a bunch of ancient Jumbolinos.

Would be simply to increase capacity rather than go long haul, if it happened. And thatís a big if.

My understanding is that RYR are hot on landings in the touch down zone irrespective of whether theyíre gentle or not.

Interestingly the wing fold occurs automatically on the landing roll out below 50kts, with the idea being that by the time you vacate they have folded. Smart idea.

It makes sense in that you can see the newco feeding KLM/AF/DL traffic from the U.K. to AMS and CDG and vice versa from the EU into VS/DL hubs like MAN.

The fleet is a bit of a mess though with...

Looks like the ATC comms got patched by mistake onto the PA and went out in the cabin, hence the pax knew that they were in deep Doodoo.

Or use the Ďdo not disturbí mode which allows numbers you select (elderly parents etc) to get hold of you but mutes alerts, texts and calls from everyone else. I use it every day.
