At AMS see we a lot of Cello's in the cabin which are usually booked as first name Cello last name the passenger name. Then they are generally secured to the vacant seat with a seatbelt extension by the passenger themselves, or sometimes with rope by the loading staff. A double-bass is interesting a...Jump to post
Putting lithium batteries in your checked luggage as opposed to you carry-on luggage is actually a violation of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. As RJ is an IATA member they should not (willingly) allow passengers to put the lithium batteries in their checked bags..
The timing of this thread is perfect for me. I was actually on a UA flight out of IAH yesterday on a 739ER and we sat on the holding pad at 15L for over 20 minutes because the captain said "they were waiting for weight and balance info to be uploaded to the aircraft computers." This was t...Jump to post
Very cool, though I think they are kinda boring, it's a fantastic aircraft nonetheless. To work with as well as to fly on!
Airbus made a pretty cool video for the anniversary:
I should imagine that animal transport is a real issue for aircraft operators, clearly they are going to go when ever they want. How is this dealt with, is the compartment hosed out afterwards? A certain well-respected German carrier mandates that specialized floor mats made of absorbing material a...Jump to post
Hi guys! Hi Martijn, You can catch a bus from the airport to Taipei Main Station for NT$125 each was. The bus will drop you off at one of two stops at the Main Station (it's changed a lot since I last took the bus, so I'm afraid I can't tell you which one will be the best stop -- I think it will be ...Jump to post

Hi all, I've got a trip planned to TPE, where I will be spending 2 days for sightseeing. I'm arriving around midnight on Sunday (so the night from Sun/Mon) in order to (hopefully) catch the China Airlines 744. I need to get to downtown Taipei around 0030-0100 assuming I arrive on schedule. The new a...Jump to post

I once had a family of three traveling from AMS to Australia (I think it was SYD), and they said their daughter was super-duper allergic to peanuts. They managed to convince the airline to block the last 5 rows (airplane wide) for their "peanut-free" quarantine zone. These three people had...Jump to post
Speaking of bright lights in the Netherlands: On a recent flight out of AMS from RWY 18L heading roughly due south (nighttime) I spotted a massive "TV-screen"/monitor on the left side of the aircraft. Any idea what it was? It was very shortly after takeoff. That's the Ziggo Dome concert v...Jump to post
As we continued flying, I saw similar installations that appeared to be off the Dutch coast* (I might be mistaken, as these had light cloud/fog cover and I couldn't clearly see any coastline). Those could be ships anchored at sea outside harbor entrances. If it was on land then they were most likel...Jump to post
LewisNEO wrote:The PH-BFB had also a false alarm smoke incident in the cargo area jan 15th and on jan 16th the same bird needed to fly back to AMS while on track to Nairobi due to some loose parts at a wing, according to the article.
However, an American Airlines spokesperson told Business Insider that only 450 employees have reported experiencing issues with their uniforms and that the airline could not verify the union's figures. Wow, "only" 450 employees! Then surely it's nothing to worry about :shock: MartijnJump to post
I'm not sure about your budget, but those helicopter flights around Manhattan island are really cool. They depart out of the Wall Street Heliport which right downtown. I think the cheapest ones go for about $180 dollars. You can just walk in and fly so you can pick a day with good visibility. I got ...Jump to post
Thanks for the replies so far everyone, keep them coming! However, according to Airbus publications, A320 family is a bit of an outlier - due to some unspecified aerodynamic phenomena, the the effect of CG on fuel consumption is negligible.

Well those BA/EZY flights to LON won't be carrying 3000kg of cargo for sure. Come to think of it, 3000kg of cargo seems like a lot (volume wise) to fit in a 319, let alone a 318. Depending on cargo density of course, but that weight equals a lot of volume if you are talking about general cargo. If y...Jump to post
Hi guys, I've been working as a load-controller for several years now, making loadsheets for a variety of airlines and aircraft types.

Does anyone have info about Cityjet's EI-RJG? She made a hard landing at FLR last year, and hasn't moved since from what I can find out.
Hey Vio, thanks for sharing! A really cool report. Very interesting to see the operations up North!
A video of a TK 321 reportedly being "deiced" is making rounds on Facebook and Twitter. It basically shows 2 guys on a ladder rolling what looks like a water-cooler bottle down the wing of the aircraft. The video maker claims that this is how they deiced the wing. Obviously it's not a pro...Jump to post

There was a trip report on this website a few years ago about (I think) an AN-24 from Bishkek to Osh, where there were people sitting in the cargo hold! Lots of Soviet era freighters have jumpseats fitted alongside the cabin walls, or have provisions for (troop)seats to be installed quickly. MartijnJump to post
Hi guys! The end of the year is near, so it's high time for some compulsive list making! Have you landed on all letters of the alphabet?

Every single flight in the world starting with 8 and with 4-digit is a codeshare one, not the original owner of the metal airline flight number. To add to the examples of SRQKEF, Lufthansa used flight numbers 4XXX for many years out of AMS, though these are now changed. Pegasus still uses a lot of ...Jump to post

Antarctic flights with a 31 year old 146, very cool! Will be interesting to follow the developments around this airline.
The reason I started asking the question here is that in every other bulk loaded aircraft I have worked on, there has been webbing between the compartments. Don't get me wrong, in the 737-800 compartments 2-1 and 3-1 quite long and cargo could shift quite a distance, but these compartments are stil...Jump to post
United fleet numbers are only 4 digits, not 5. Maybe the gate agent meant to say ship 2512 which corresponds to N212UA?
