Thanks for that, we don't get many NWA's up here so it's nice to see one even though they had to divert.

NWA, Are they playing the M.E.N

Isnt that one of those hap hip groups who sing about "wasting pigs" and such like? I've heard they are " sick, wicked and ..erm..jolly tight crew.".

Where can I get tickets.

Gosh i do like the ethnic stuff, and such good dancers.

Your comment did suprise me. I am SLF and done a fair bit of it. In early January 1993 my wife and myself were on a NWA 747 from Boston to LGW. It was some journey , incredibly rough, no food served because of it, but amazingly fast, I have a memory of 5hours due to the winds (but I'm probably very wrong on that). However I could not forget the landing. No sight of land until we hit the deck. And I mean hit. The aircraft bounced, everything went very quiet for what seemed an eternity, then hit the ground hard and pulled up very fast. The cabin attendant came on and said "Well! Welcome to Gatwick." That relieved the tension alright.

Northwest problems

I saw on Sunday nights edition of Fast Track on BBC News 24 that Northwest are in financal with United airlines. What do you think about this?

I am sorry I was supposed to ask what you think about Northwest and United Airlines in financal trouble.
