The last time I flew in and out of SJC, we boarded by stairs. That was in 2006-ish. Granted, it was a 737, not a widebody, but all of the times I went through SJC, I never remembered a single set of airstairs (again, each time a 737, MD-80, or CRJ, never a super big bird). I'm guessing this has cha...Jump to post

In other news: airliners.net is outraged at nothing again. This service wasn't meant to cater towards you. Nobody's forcing you to use it at gunpoint. Don't like it, then choose another airline. If somebody wants to start an airline where people from smaller, specific communities might feel safer us...Jump to post

I realize I'm just a bitter, petty artist, but I hate the weird swoopy Qantas-wannabe tail trend that's been a feature of almost all current livery redos. Plus the billboard text, and how they take the old logos and magnify them by 100+. It comes off as kinda tacky and unpolished. Who comes up with ...Jump to post
120 million is enough money to contribute to far more productive causes. Like somebody else said, funding more searches for MH370, or maybe funding charter flights for civilians out of war zones or air medical services.
I love the Concorde too, but it ain't coming back. Let it rest.
Why are you still complaining about "illegal" immigrants anyway? These two women are American. Pretty crappy of you to assume by default Spanish-speakers aren't citizens, and then from there that if they aren't citizens, they're somehow less than human.Jump to post
texdravid, if you live in Texas, then why are you speaking English instead of Kiikaapoa, Hasínay, or Nʉmʉ Tekwapʉ̲? We oughta set up checkpoints for those pesky English-speaking illegals...Jump to post
On one hand, I absolutely agree that cabin crew should be held to a stringent standard of professional appearance, and grubby frumpy uniforms don't cut it, but on the other hand, a lot of people aren't viewing it from a professionalism angle and instead from a "I want every flight attendant to...Jump to post

You also cannot deny that Animal Planet would be better if the logo still had an elephant on it.Jump to post
I've been studying this case for the past few years, and it really shocked me considering I grew up in and have family in the areas where he struck, and I never even knew about that history while I lived there. It's incredible to me that he was caught. I knew it was bound to happen some day, but I d...Jump to post
God, that's really tragic for that passenger and her family, and I can't imagine it feels too great for the crew, either. Totally not their fault. Hats off to them for their quick actions and WN's professionalism, though. But a side note, the CFM56 is the same type of engine that failed on another W...Jump to post
God, my condolences to everybody who knew her.
Workplace-related suicides are serious. Being a crew member on international routes places an incredible amount of stress on people. It wouldn't surprise me at all if that were a part of why she took her life.
Is it bad that I laughed?
I mean, obviously you shouldn't be working in customer service if you don't have an endless amount of patience, and even if the passenger was genuinely a fucking asshole, you don't tell them that, but that baggage guy's reaction is gold.
I'm actually more surprised in the fact Seattle/Washington is becoming more crazy than California. Oh well, all the businesses should pack up and move to California anyway (who is also doing better economically as well), then the People's Republic of Washington can see what a failure this is.

Lol and there are 757's, 767's, and 747-400's from getting trashed left and right that were all built between '99 and 2004. They don't build 'em like they used to - that's what crack and hip hop "culture" will do to a country. Yeah, those darn kids with their swing dancing and phonographs...Jump to post
That terrible picture recovered from JAL 123 came to mind, but somebody already posted that. UA 811 is another that has some, but I'm not sure if it counts considering almost everybody survived and the plane was subsequently repaired and returned to service: http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/media/1772044...Jump to post
Ohhhh God let's see... Scoot is what my dog does on the carpet. SCAT and Wizz need no explanation. Aer Lingus is kinda dirty. 1Time, Blue 1, Air 2000, FlyMe, Bingo Airways, Trip, V-bird, Skytaxi, First Choice Airways, go!, and easyJet are all pretty uninspiring. But as far as branding goes, I've alw...Jump to post
Remember everyone, 1984 was meant to be a warning not a guide, yet some of you would love for it to be a reality. It's scary that people are believing "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength" should be enforced. George Orwell himself fought against Spanish fascists and wa...Jump to post
Everywhere where communism has been tried it has failed to deliver and has resulted in a brutal dictatorsip of some form. How many more times must it be tried until we can all agree that it is a failure and little better than Nazism (in practise I mean). As far as antifa goes, I'm not convinced of ...Jump to post
Simple. Shops all around the western world sell communist themed stuff without any issues, yet anything with swastika is suddenly a huge no no.

What do you think? These guys are as transparent as Trump. Let's take a look at what both sides stand for. They are the same, after all: One side wants the wholesale eradication of entire races and cultures because they are inferior. The other side thinks that is a horrible idea. Yeah, that's the s...Jump to post
Won't somebody think of the poor knocked over garbage bins? I'm more worried that some anarchist goes and burns my car as I'm a white man with middle-class parents. The system is broken.

Aaaaaaand we're back to "both sides are guilty". Both Trump's white supremacist supporters, and the girl killed by the car one drove.
