Charging for features that are pin changes or already included in the hardware has been standard Boeing practice for a while. The Ryanair 738s has black and white FMCs as that was what they paid for...

Depends what you want - it’s a worldwide fleet. That’s one of the things that makes it a great fleet to be on as if say you hate the Far East, there’s plenty of US stuff to get your teeth into.

As soon as they can plug you into the training plan you will get called I believe, particularly if you are already rated on a type we operate. No swimming as such these days!

However, at c80% and full time on the P777 list I am getting pretty much what I want out of JSS. Those joining the fleet above me tend to replace those leaving to commands or other fleets, and the...

One of the key reasons for the 777/787 rated campaign is exactly the same reason as the A320 rated campaign - training capacity. The BA training system is running full speed and rated applicants get...

Dickie Snell is still with us, but no longer flying. Pat Lander is still about I believe too, and he was Exam01 for quite some time iirc.

The 777 flight control system is excellent. It flies like a large, more stable 737. Trimming is natural and intuitive and exactly like flying a non-few aircraft. It also keeps you in practice for...

For those of you wishing to join, suggestion is in the vicinity of 300 DEPs needed in 2019, both short haul and long haul. DEPs certainly to the 777 and 787, I am guessing the 747 too but not the...

From my old B738 FCOM, the speed trim is inhibited if the control column is moved in the opposite direction to which the trim is running. I am assuming that the system in the max is similar?

The “suitable for long haul” policy has also been confirmed internally and has, to say the least, generated a bit of controversy. It was supposed to address a few training...

There will certainly be direct recruitment to long haul, for which 2000h on aircraft over 50 t MTOW I believe is required.
