On top of all that, Immigration/CBP at Shannon now goes home before one of the BA flights arrives, which I understand forces the PAX to immigrate at JFK. Which erases that "perk". I don't think the 318 can do LCY-JFK nonstop given LCY's toy runway. Hence the tech stop in SNN continues, in...Jump to post

The major problem it seems is deforestation. They've lost two thirds of their forests over the past century, because people keep cutting them down for firewood and to clear farmland.

state-run aid... that remind me what China is doing there and China does seems to be doing great over there, although it is also pointed out that they are doing it for resources as well as strategic and tactic benefits.

Jump to postThe question most often asked about the design, Budaev said, is why the MC-21 doesn’t have winglets, given the design’s emphasis on efficiency. The high-aspect-ratio composite wings obviate the need for them, he said, the same reason the composite Boeing 787 has no winglets.
