And I'll now re-read it, since it's been a few years. It really shows the technology leap that's been made that you can read it on the EFB at 41,000ft on the way back from a Greek night flight, which...

Yes, it's normal. You tend to go up in 2,000ft increments. However, winds change aloft and sometimes your flight plan may well ask you to drop down 2,000ft to take advantage of a jetstream for...

A good friend of mine, with a lot of experience in the industry said to me at the time, with the crazy leasing structure in place due to past Walker Trust dealings, they never stood a chance. The...

There are 5 737-800s in their fleet that are older than all their remaining -300s. You wouldn't know it though. All are in very clean, tidy condition. I suspect the new order fits in well with B757...

The bases, aircraft and crews were not what did for the old Flybe. It was the excessive aircraft leases carried over from the old Walker Trust days that dragged it down. Remember that. Other than...

Reducing to one pilot is a manager's wet dream. REmember the most important part though. Any single pilot aircraft needs to be simple enough that a day 1 second officer can fly it safely. They'll...

The Ettyl/Stobart/Flybe/Loganair/Eastern fight is only just about to start. It's going to be messy, bloody and will probably last a year or two until the survivors become apparent. I suspect we'll be...

I sincerely hope they manage to pull it off. So many good friends driving delivery vans right now who deserve to be back in the air. I would think Southampton and Birmingham may well be the most...

Yes, but if they can't make money they'll not bother. Daily morning and evening flights to Manchester historically only make money on some days and times of the week. That's the nature of it. If you...
