I recently flew on UX for the sole reason of trying them out. I flew BCN-MAD-AMS on the 332 and 738. Upon boarding the 330 in BCN, I was shocked. The cabin condition was horrific. The ship was ECJQQ, of course I don't know if it's a fleet wide problem but it was incredible. The legroom is very restr...Jump to post
There should only be one Emirates A380 at any one time, is that right? And perhaps the CZ A380. That's true. But it woundn't be the first time there are 2 EK 380s on the ground at the same time for whatever reason. Also the modifications didn't cause a downgrade for any other stand or capacity or w...Jump to post
Schiphol is getting a 3rd A380 capable gate. Interesting.

Two Air Nostrum Canadian 1000s are already on estate replacing some of the SU95 flying. I got one the other day, missing out on the SSJ by just two days. It's a bit confusing as they announce on board "Brussels Airlines operated by Air Nostrum flying for Cityjet" (seriously). I had two Sp...Jump to post
I don't speak Spanish either, but is it really that big a deal to make a booking on their Spanish site? I mean you've flown them before so you know the product offerings, and the website structure. So it's not too hard to figure out what the Spanish words mean I'd say.. And yeah, price is paramount ...Jump to post
The Avrojet has an actual "car horn" sound as the ground call. The mentioned Boeing ground calls are super loud and very distinct, you definitely hear that over every other sound on the ramp. There's also one type that starts sounding a constant "horn" sound when the ground power...Jump to post
Ayit is mainly a flight school and they do skydiving. That's what most of their fleet is doing. And the SH-360 is flying military charters, you can see it on Flightradar every now and then. We can charter the SH-360 (info from a friend who is on-site this week), it costs EUR 4'500 for a roundtrip t...Jump to post
Thanks Airstud, I always could count on you! I'm a bit late this year because there was more flying to be done. I was THIS close to getting the U as I was booked to UUD, but then the flight got diverted :eek: New entries for this year in green A: ABQ , ACI, AGP, AJR, AMS, ANR, AOK, ARN, ATL, AUH, AU...Jump to post

To be honest I'm a bit surprised she's up there on her own, would have expected a 2 controller minimum..
Holy crap! I hope IST and/or TK have some safety-award initiative for the guy that stopped this from happening! Terrific job
Boeing's legal staff would be busy if they are suing everyone who's critical of their products. Have you read the Airliners forums lately?

I own a 1997-issue MD-11 production guide as handed out by MD. Had to go through a lot of dusty old boxes so I hope they are of interest to someone! I scanned both the AZ Combi and the MP Convertible. Unfortunately there are no drawings about how the Combi is supposed to look, but there are some con...Jump to post
If you think the current interior is bad, you may have forgotten about the interiors before they were refurbished! It was a complete embarrassment. And this was well before there were any plans of retiring the 767! I will sorely miss these aircraft however. They are comfy and just a nice change of s...Jump to post
They were probably at about a 3 mile final when they started the go around. Hopefully they will be hanged, drawn and quartered to serve as an example to other pilots. Almost making a big mistake will not be tolerated. That would really promote a safety culture and get to the root cause. I think you...Jump to post
Belgian media are reporting that VLM airlines has once again declared bankruptcy. They made massive cuts across the route network just a month ago. It's hardly the first time that VLM is in trouble, and I wonder if they will try another startup or finally give up. Personally I'm quite sad as I have ...Jump to post
Every time MOL or FR announce something controversion, the Anet Anti-FR squad starts screaming that THIS time it will surely mean the end of them. It never does, and it won't this time either!

Can you even begin to comprehend the logistics of an operation like this? At my local airport AMS there are already thousands of people with airside access, and we're hardly the biggest airport in the world!
Skytrax should not be taken seriously. Though I can not comment on LOT Long haul, I would say their short haul product is perfectly adequate. The service is basic, free coffee/tea and a chocolate bar. However their BOB prices are very reasonable I think. The cabin crew is always friendly and WAW is ...Jump to post
Why would a possible shoot down be covered up? I think anyone can agree that it would have been sensible to do so. What could the Air Force possibly gain from hiding it? On a different note, I do feel for the guy. He was clearly not out to hurt anyone but himself. The ATC recordings are very telling...Jump to post
I feel bad for the little girl but not for the mother.

Would 20 tourists be allowed on a 75 year old vintage aircraft in the UK? I think not. Allowed to fly through a mountain range? Probably not. Accident avoidable. Probably.

Does anybody know what kind of issues are affecting Vueling's operation? They made a mess a couple of summers ago, when they planned more flights than they had planes for.

I am shocked! Horrible, horrible news! I flew on her sister ship just last month. The Ju-Air operation looked very professional, and I was very impressed with the immaculate state of the aircraft.
It's indeed very intriguing. They were all the rage when they first started flying. The Anet trip report section was flooded with reports about how fantastic they were, and everyone was going out of their way to fly them. It was supposed to be THE premium airline around Europe. Then just the other d...Jump to post

I don't think the controller was unprofessional. Annoyed for sure, but he accommodated the '104 as well as he could. No one can blame the 104 crew for not flying into conditions they deem unsafe of course, but I don't think that last remark about the "bosses" was called for.
I'd say a minimum of 2 hours for the museum, it's a fantastic collection!
