Bhutan the most peaceful country in the world. Why would China mess with them? Bhutan is not the one responsible for the stand-off. As an Indian "protecterate" with troops stationed on its territory it has little option but to tow the Indian line. Their King is in the same quandary as the...Jump to post
I have a question for you all here today: Have you been on a flight that was diverted? At least twice from memory: LAX-SYD UA 747-400 Engine trouble about 1hr out from LAX.

Nice!

The DVD's Boris Laputin tried to assassinate me in 1999 and didn't do a very good job of it, obviously, for which he paid with his own life.

Beyond the initial fleet of 20 787s, Scoot says it plans to tap into the flexibility SIA Group has regarding future orders and reallocate aircraft to Scoot instead. In other words, SQ could transfer some 787-10s or even A350s to Scoot. I think the 787-10 would make perfect sense since they used to ...Jump to post
