There have been some huge evacuations in Germany while large bombs are dealt with, I recall a very large one was found in Hannover last year leading to several thousand people having to leave their homes for the day. UK ones only tend to make the national news if they are large, or if they cause a l...Jump to post
I know this question would be difficult because how long the 767 has been in operation and how many airlines have flown them, but does anyone know what the highest seat count on any 767 has been? I would imagine a 2-4-2 763 probably has more than a normally configured 764 at DAL and UAL? Thomson al...Jump to post
If it wasn't a mid air collision then the pitot tubes probably iced, but if they did, why the speed fluctuations? Speed didn't fluctuate like that if we take a pitot tube related incident like AF447 iirc. Isn't the FR24 speed the Ground Speed which is calculated by the aircraft's navigation system ...Jump to post
Well I haven't been on a trip this weekend ;) - or for a year or so as I've been clearing credit card debts - I do have trips lined up for March and April though ;) I do tend to write full essays as well as doing video and I prefer to read something without sound when I'm on an early Sunday duty at ...Jump to post
Are there a dozen already? I know of Norwegian, WOW, BA (A318s), and a few 752s with DL, UA, and AA. I also know of a few charter airlines, but I'm unable to get to a dozen. In the future, I expect Air Lingus, JetBlue, and then the European airlines. But that is for another date. LIghtsaber Aer Lin...Jump to post
Am I right in thinking that Condos and Time shares are a lot more common in the US as well which means less demand for packages?Jump to post
Surprised at the lack of jetbridge ... doesn't DUB have a new terminal ??
I believe package holidays are still pretty big in Germany. Hence TUI DE and Condor doing well as the in house airlines of the tour operators.Jump to post
I wonder if she's being leaned on by the DUP to intervene in this. The plants in question are in Northern Ireland and possibly in DUP constituencies.

another reason not to fly JetBlue transcon. I mean, why would they buy a plane that cant make it from point A to point B within the USA when you get some gusty winds? Shame on JetBlue. Why did the US Majors acquire 757s that can't make the Westbound Atlantic Crossing in similar conditions. The airc...Jump to post
I think it's looking more likely that Easyjet will be moving their HQ from the UK. Probably with a token brass plate company and AOC for UK Domestic rights.
Also would any negotiation be with the EU or all 27 countries individually?
I'd batten down the hatches: you're in for a real storm! Suggesting the 764 may not be perfect is an extreme opinion to hold on here! Of all the idiocy I've seen on this website in the past 12 years, the child threatening to sue people for "defamation of character"(!) because they had a c...Jump to post
I know passports are checked several times when you fly internally in the UK, check in, security and boarding. Is it the same on internal flights in the US. Passports are not checked on UK Domestic flights. Last time I flew Domestic (a few days ago) My ID was checked at Security (after I set the de...Jump to post
A great trip report. I'm glad that all went well and there was little hassle. easyJet have a few trans crew and Bristol airport staff are usually very chirpy so I don't think you'll get much hassle at all. That's funny about the door! I've never that before. Was it frozen? I've heard the crunch of ...Jump to post
Hello and welcome to this trip report of my round trip from Bristol to Edinburgh with easyJet I have previously written trip reports on here under a different name, but having come out as transgender I thought I’d start over!

I don't think it was that far off shore - maybe 50-60miles. Growing up on the coast of South Devon we'd hear a sonic boom each evening as the Air France Concordes accelerated over the English channel. Obviously it would have dissipated a bit but it was still enough to rattle the windows. The BA flig...Jump to post
The 757 is single aisle and was meant to be a follow on to the 727. The 753 was suppressed for over a decade as it would have competed with the 762. The 767 is twin aisle and was meant to be an A300 competitor. why didn't they build the 767 wide enough for 2 4 2 in Y then, to be a true competitor? ...Jump to post
It used to be required on UK flights - I think it changed in 2014 as my flights with BA around then had a manual announcement that the regulations had recently changed but the safety video didn't yet reflect it. IIRC the Easyjet Demo said. "If your device has a flight safe mode, it should be en...Jump to post
0 - Last year I've only managed one trip and that was by land (Group of us hired a coach to a German Music festival - interesting trip though)
Next year I've got one domestic penciled in, but need to sort a new passport out when I get supporting paperwork (joy of being Trans)

My friends have aborted their Trip, KLM staff had made themselves scarce airside so they had to be escorted landside to speak to someone.

The info's not been good TBH, Heathrow and KLM were showing progressively longer delays (ie 30 mins, then 30 mins later adding another 30 mins) when the inbound was still in AMS.

They use Flight Levels above a certain level, Metres below.Jump to post
Another question is how much do the kids look like their passports. Potentially it could be a baby photo if a child passport lasts for 5 years. Kids change a lot in that time. I'm guessing a solution would be to photograph the kid at check in with the photo appearing when boarding passes etc are sca...Jump to post

Or even have something built in. In the UK the largest operator of scheduled coaches has fitted breath test equipment to all their coaches.

Which was probably tied to the UK buying 9 P-8A's.

From the numbers I'm reading in this thread, the UK should order their high speed rail lines to French companies, you would pay 90% less. Most of the cost is land acquisition.

It would be funny if it wasn't for the fact I live here!
