Re: AA - no to ICE to transporting detained child migrants

There may also be cabin crew who do not want to or are refusing to work flights with such passengers and have the Unions bac...

It's quite the opposite. This IS without a shadow of a doubt illegal in the EU. If BA entered into a contract and they ...

Re: Land terribly when on a solo flight.

Alot of poor landings are a result of not being on speed. Make sure the aircraft is perfectly trimmed for 1.3x VSO, pick an aim point and set power for altitude, power idle when the runway is made, look at the end of the runway and flare based on your periphrial vision filling with runway.
