Re: US/UK banning electronics in cabin from multiple Middle East/African countries

As I understand it, the guy in London was born in Kent.

He had a criminal record, but the last offence was in 2003.

His main weapon was a hire car.

Not sure whether the Seniority basis works for the employee or employer.

Is the fact you have done the same job, for the same firm really such a good thing.

The thing is that seniority works very nicely, for the airlines.

If seniority transferred across, it would be a whole new ball game.

Perhaps it should apply at the top as well.

You leave your CEO jobs, then start at intern rates.

Re: Is there a database to find registrations for past flights?

Just got a copy of the Summer 1972 Cambrian Airways timetable.

Sure enough it shows the flight from Dublin as EI284.

The surprise was that the flight from Bristol was EI285, even though it was flown by a Cambrian BAC111.
