Thomson/Britannia also did some flights in this era further east into Siberia in deep winter, for "the cold". Minus 40 pretty much guaranteed. Bratsk was one such place.

I don't take any delight, as some others do, in grinding Boeing senior exec's faces in it, but I must say that if they stand up in front of the Congressional Committee and say that the 737 Max...

It would be good to know what sort of income came into Flying Legends (pre-online only booking) and what their costs were. By the numbers attending and the price I would be confident they more than...

Well in that case we might as well knock down all museums, and develop the land for housing.

Duxford did it for me when they insisted that you had to buy tickets for Flying Legends in advance only, apparently a knee-jerk reaction to the Shoreham accident. You couldn't even buy on line on the...

I have to say I never saw a OneWorld connection offered through Dusseldorf, either on the BA website or through the independent Web ones. KLM, Lufthansa and (notably) Swiss seem to do them...

There's no more issue of a shortage of parking stands at LCY at the weekend than there is on any weeknight. In any event, the business demand pattern at LCY makes it more appropriate for aircraft to...
