Was 128, but routed LHR-MAN-ISB and v/v. Was an absolute nightmare.

As for the BA bashing, I'm getting involved in this a bit late. They abandoned MAN and all the regions and went very...

Bit annoying that. Got the NAPS email and thought to myself "didn't BA take a pension holiday in the '90s".

Yield management is a bit of a "dark art". I remember getting on a flight ex-Rio that was -57 on an ID90. No issue getting on. Some routes were notorious for no-shows, usually in F and J. If you made...

STN Ramp Rat

Jump on the back of a trailer carrying the pallets would have been easier. Landside straight away. Seems odd as how on Earth would he know there was an extra leg to Maastricht?...

There isn't really a huge amount of money to be made from freight other than specialist stuff. Plus it's very difficult finding a profitable PtP route and you need a handling agent willing to take...

MAN-LGW was a strange route, to do with revenue being "manipulated" I believe and mainline taking all the profit. 2901 was always full at 0620, mostly US connections. It was never a P2P route. Since...

Someone please close this thread. It's been invaded by loonies.

Personally I'd go for tractor beams, never mind discussing why hydrocarbon fuels have a vastly higher energy density than H2.

It's more to do with the length. Engines generally very close to the CoG/M. In simple terms 10T of mass 1M away is the same as 1T 10M away. It's a little more complicated than that though, and that...

Don't have intimate knowledge of the 738, but I'm guessing the length probably leaves it slightly susceptible to L&B issues. Unless you offloaded all of the FWD PAX and the front hold, doubt there is...

Been a while since I studied chemistry, but you can create H2 from CO2 and CH4. However this isn't so simple. H2 as the H2 produced has a nasty habit of reacting with the CO2 at low energies. Good...

Slightly off topic, but I've always wondered who does the AVI check on animals as checked luggage. Don't think check-out staff are trained to do it.

Not sure the NAPS figures are even that good.

Mostly because BA took their "pension holiday".

I know this much, from their latest missive. NAPS lost 10% of it's value, now I'm no pensions expert, but that doesn't sound good.

And what happens in the case of a decompression. Not sure face masks have been trialed with O2 masks. You'd have to be very quick getting your face mask off and your O2 one on.

Scientists don't really use PPM because it's far too ambiguous. We generally use molar concentrations for liquids. Makes it far easier.

Correct. They'll be anarchy at some point, people like their liberty. It appears there will have to be "acceptable" losses, the alternative is far scarier.

Definitely Manchester, did three circuits and appeared to be doing a procedural approach as the outbound leg was bang on down the 05 outbound track, wasn't your normal vectored approach.
