If it's customary to pay 13 months then that is expected by all parties.

Paying 12 months is a 9% pay cut.

You seem to be questioning why the...

I'm sat maybe 200 feet back from the flight crew.

I don't know what they know, but they can't see what I can see.

In any serious ground incident, the advantage may be 80/20 to the flight crew,...

It looks a little bit interesting, really.

Under ICAO, it seems in a number of respects an aircraft is a national of the state in which it is registered. In some respects it resembles territory.

Are we really, actually debating whether or not ATC has greater accountability for terrain clearance than the flight crew?

Really? Actually?

Indeed.

A healthy understanding of gas turbines is not a substitute for an appreciation of the role of the popular press.

I would also gently question the certification of automation that doesn't even try to validate key inputs.

We've had thermocouples since about 1820.

Don't understand the emotion.

They looked at their worst performing routes and substituted capacity onto their best existing routes or new ones instead.

I said the exact same thing just in far fewer words.

Redeploying frames is much more complex than adjusting pricing.

If they could maintain adequate yield ex-MAN then they would.

Surely what it tells us is that underlying demand for this route is weak enough that capacity rather than pricing needs to be adjusted for seasonality.

They hit the ground at 125 knots.

Understood.

No doubt the court case will focus on whether pressing TOGA at 100 knots was a clear and unambigous command for thrust.

Or whether the crew pressed it inappropriately because of a...

Sure, but you miss the point.

I never disputed that the crew failed, or that the overwhelming majority of crews would not fail.

Nevertheless, the crew did actually command thrust.

If true this seems terrible news.

For J class PAX, you just can't replace even NG seats on a 752 with premium economy on TCX, let alone a reconfigured 763 or Zodiac equipped 788.

Darn.

US number is toll free.

This appears to be true in KL as well.

Perhaps try Skype or some such, and call them overseas for pennies instead.

Very much looking forward to AA returning the 788.

Much better hard product than BA from LHR in J, with more connections at t'other end.

Hopefully there's room for this as well as TCX.
