Almost everytime I'm in Dubai I deplane EK's A380's via stairs. They seem to use remote stands rather frequently. Or maybe I'm just lucky. I'm always pleased when it happens as I can breathe some fresh air between two longhaul flights and it's quite an experience to walk around the A380.Jump to post
I just did it because it was the cheapest option. I don’t really fancy traveling on Chinese carriers. It always comes with these pointless regulations aka that you’re not allowed to switch on your mobile phone at all onboard (not even in flight mode). Then Chinese airline food doesn’t really appeal ...Jump to post
You have good chances to find a connection solely on A330 if you look at Chinese airlines. I once did TXL-PEK-PVG-SYD-NKG-PEK-TXL all on A330 with a combination of HU and MU. Wouldn’t do it again though.Jump to post
Just out of curiosity: Let’s assume in the morning he realizes that he’s not able to fly because he drank to much. He tells the airline exactly that. Would he have to face any consequences? I know that this might be handled differently from airline to airline. I’m just wondering how airlines handle ...Jump to post
Airplane is a Cessna 208B Grand Caravan operated by Fly Sax of Kenya. R.I.P. That rest in peace wish is a little premature, don't you think? I mean, a long time ago there was a group of uruguayans surviving almost two months in the Andes mountains, I hope the people on board this aircraft could sur...Jump to post

I had a flight last September on Andes Lineas Aereas. We tried to fly from Buenos Aires to Iguazú. After takeoff we flew rather slowly while the pilots tried to extend and retract the flaps a couple of times. It turned out that the left slat didn’t retract properly so we went back to AEP. I find it ...Jump to post
I just had a trip on a 28 year old Yakolev Yak-42 which I was really excited about. I wasn’t disappointed as it was a very comfortable 2 hour ride through Russia.Jump to post
Definitely WLG as it’s a pretty small airport (by European standards) where I always had seamless travels. If you fly on planes with less than 70 seats you don’t have to go through security checks (which has nothing to do with WLG but it makes traveling through NZ even easier). The short runway and ...Jump to post
Yes I am glad Air Astana Air going daily from LHR. However, where the slots are coming from I can only imagine them from maybe Airberlin but I'm not too sure. I doubt they’re coming from AB as they never flew there. A couple of years ago you could see some AB metal in LHR but these were operating f...Jump to post
You really don't want to transfer at SVO. Compared to SVO, even CDG looks like a great airport for transfer. Just out of curiosity, what exactly is your problem with SVO? I have connected there a couple of times and found it pretty seamless. It gets a bit annoying if you get a bus gate because the ...Jump to post

There hardly seems to be an airport with a code starting with Q. Even cities starting with Q like Queenstown (ZQN) or Quebec (YQB) don’t use a code starting with Q. The only airport codes with Q that come to mind are some small German airports like Husum-Schwesing (QHU). Does anybody have a guess wh...Jump to post
I think you have a few good points there but I also think that the fact that it’s the first jumbo jet makes it quite iconic. The 747 opened up quite some new possibilities in air travel by making it faster and more comfortable. Maybe you can use this?
They are Virgin Australia EJets and have been at Embraer for a while. I don’t know why. The why is easy. VA is retiring the E190s and they are currently parked awaiting a new home. How do they get an E190 from Australia to BNA? Temporary fuel tanks? They probably just did some island hopping throug...Jump to post
Thanks so much for compiling this detailed list!Jump to post
It doesn’t happen often but it’s not uncommon to use idle reverse on taxiways going downhill in order to prevent the wheel brakes from getting too hot. I’ve seen it plenty of times on biz jets but also on A320 etc., for instance in AMS on that taxiway leading to the Polderbaan. Interesting, as the ...Jump to post

Hey there, I'm just sitting at ORD's T5 waiting for my flight. I just watched an Iberia A346 arrive at T5 and after deboarding passengers taxiing over to T3 to prepare for its next flight. What struck me was that after pushing back it taxied with its own engines. It's for sure nothing special that p...Jump to post
I know that JetBlue writes it on their cards. A couple of months ago I flew SFO-BOS on on of their A321. The card said it was manufactured in Hamburg which I checked and it was true. There are a few 2 US built 321s in the B6 fleet. The updated A321 safety card has both the USA or Germany listed as ...Jump to post
