The flight has actually started but isn't on BA.com yet, it is, however, in the BA timetable and bookable via some 3rd party sites, but at £1300 Rtn for a flight that also stops at CBG, most will probably continue to route throug other hubs, But available on the cheap via the miracle of avios!

So there's isn't a published schedule for the A346 MUC flights like there is with the 747 to FRA? I would like to take a trip encompassing both of these servicesJump to post
I believe they said "we're having radio issues" "Yeah that's pretty evident..." Honestly I'm surprised the air traffic controller kept so cool. Kudos to him for handling the situation well and keeping all safe. When he gave those instructions to UA about moving without delay was...Jump to post
I was appalled to see the way they kind of dragged that poor man who had to jump for dear life. I hope he didn't sustain serious injuries because of that "help". I also expected a more immediate action against the fire itself. That is a major fire, no doubt it's better to get them the hec...Jump to post
I can tell you as a resident of the UK that it's big bad Boeing/the USA who has been getting a trashing over here about all of this. I imagine there will be some warplane cancellations but that's about it. It's not like the government can instruct BA not to buy Boeing next time to teach them a lesson.Jump to post
The article suggests they may go to Australia. Quite the difference between 9 abreast 777s and 787sJump to post
TS's A330s are 9 abreast though right? Doesn't exactly fit with the newer, more mainline experience that TCX are promoting on their long haul ops. I sort of suspect the TS 330 will be a short haul tourist bomber?Jump to post
Wow. I can't believe it, despite all the last minute reprieves I didn't actually think they would end like this. I've enjoyed many flights on Monarch over the years, and flown on almost all of their post 1990 fleet. After the last crisis I went out of my way to support the airline and book with them...Jump to post
Agreed. The fact this was a freight flight and the FO was completely on his own and unable to help the Captain is traumatizing to imagine. To clarify, I'm not referring to the ability of the FO to get the A/C safely on the ground - they do that every day. But to helplessly watch as your co-worker p...Jump to post
I'm kind of surprised the A330neo did not win. Cheaper to purchase, cheaper to maintain, lots of trained pilots around, lots of spare parts, etc. Good range, good capacity, good economy. What am I missing? Well a new a.net narrative appearing to be forming is that it's a move to get the US Departme...Jump to post

Thanks for posting, there is some video now uploaded. Seemed a little bumpy!
The A350 arrived at DTW today from ATL! It was / is doing extensive pattern work at CVG both before arriving at DTW and after leaving to head back to ATL. I hope they will through in some domestic revenue runs before the inaugural October 30 run from DTW-NRT. It seems crazy they would not do that i...Jump to post
Thanks Sir Tim. Totally captain obvious stuff, but maybe it doesn't seem that way from inside the US?Jump to post
The reason? EI says it is sticking with 330s, which is a fine aircraft no doubt, but with its hub at Dublin growing, it doesn't seem to make sense to stay with an aircraft of the same capacity they've had for the last 20 years. My guess: the case made by IB for these aircraft was better than that m...Jump to post
No air stairs became available over 6 hour period? I call BS.Jump to post
I also just saw a very interesting taxi top ad in NYC: STOP IN LISBON ON YOUR WAY TO ROME Interesting angle that I've never seen before in an airline ad That seems to be their strap line at the moment, hell they even painted an A330 with that message. http://cdn.panrotas.com.br/media-files-cache/21...Jump to post
Of course it makes sense. They are already built and can be taken up and put into rework whenever the air force likes. I don't buy the argument that they are bespoke aircraft from the ground up, all other nations manage with modifications of standard aircraft, why can't the USA?Jump to post
Its is 100% not a delivery flight to fly an A350 TLS-AMS-JFK. New aircraft are NEVER put into revenue service when being delivered from the manufacturer without being inducted into the airline's maintenance systems, being fitted with airline-owned/installed equipment, and being furnished with passe...Jump to post

No he didn't. He put the chocks down immediately.
I bet they order Boeings this timeJump to post
This was always going to happen eventually. Thus ends the SXM experience I suspect.Jump to post
Wearable body cameras for FAs (to be used I the event of a disturbance and left in a locker at all other times) would be a cheap and minimally intrusive solution. But as another poster said, everyone would film on their cell phones anyway.Jump to post

I'm an American. I hate propaganda. Sure they are getting money from the government. Who hasn't? You're telling me none of the US3 has received a penny from the govt?

Hold on a moment, this thread is making it sound as if the staff did nothing: France said she put wet wipes on Owen’s neck and down his shirt to cool him. His body felt hotter as they sat in the aircraft, she said, and flight attendants brought ice in garbage bags to place on the 4-month-old. Crew ...Jump to post

I suppose it all depends on what altitude the new Addis Ababa airport is at. If it is indeed lower as rumoured up thread, then it would make sense to prepare for the future fleet requirements, rather than order as per the conditions found today.Jump to post
I just wonder about MT,business class,flatbed and all is not really their thing, maybe a Business like cabin with recliners. Could be wrong.

MH seem to be doing well after restructuring, talking about new widebodies and new routes.
So why the heck can't they make the A380 work to LHR?
