Interesting article about the arrests of Air Marshalls rather than arrests made by Air Marshalls. I am not sure which statistic is higher but it does show that everyone with a badge and a gun in the US is not above reproach. https://www.propublica.org/article/tsa-releases-data-on-air-marshal-miscon...Jump to post
Wondering if Airbus was at fault here... Welcome to the forum.

While holding fake degrees is very concerning, if they can fly the plane in line with all regulations and standards, I don't see the problem. Seriously?!! So as long as they can fly the plane ‘in line with regulations’ it doesn’t matter? So basically anyone should be able to turn up at any airline ...Jump to post
Florida Man strikes again! This. What's in the water down there? :lol: Gators, oil, and the bladder contents of far too many jaded New Yorkers/New Jerseyans.

Very odd/sketchy articles but it would be nice to see Ethiopian in Texas. It doesn’t mention a city, just “Texas.” I would imagine it would be Houston due to the Star Alliance hub there, but I’m pretty sure Dallas/DFW has a much larger Ethiopian community. I guess we’ll have to wait and see! What a...Jump to post

In terms of Mirpuri, it's the last name of their CEO, and also the name of the foundation he leads; they've painted up a/c before for it Can anyone tell what the "mirpuri foundation" actually does? Looks like it doles out money to other people with the name Mirpuri, based on a reading of ...Jump to post
Looking at their history, it doesn't seem like a serious airline. Seems strange that the Aga Khan fund would invest in something like this. Something doesn't smell right. Comes off like a giant money laundering scheme, and as a means to grant political favours. The "CEO" is a retired army ...Jump to post
I feel describing the one at Bruntingthorpe as "preserved" is quite optimistic, it was in pretty poor condition when I saw it in 2016. Yes...the salt air is preserving it nicely. At least the only pressurized part is the crew cabin, might make it slightly easier to bring back into service...Jump to post
I was working on international flight from Spain and performed CPR on a customer in BC. It was extremely difficult for the family to watch their Grandmother die. However, people never surprises me.

How sensible is it to rebrand a cabin class? I know some airlines already offer Business Class not named such. The US carriers and VS maybe get away with it because they have a high number of O/D pax who are familiar with things now. Then again, Canada is a bit restrictive on foreign carrier access...Jump to post

Rebooting or powering-down or darkening the aircraft or ctrl-alt-delete is a time honored way to "fix" or reset a balky computer, system and/or aircraft...in the case or more modern aircraft. It's analogous to rebooting your phone or computer when it glitches. Thank you for that explanati...Jump to post

How about a re-engined L-1011 with 5 RR Tay engines? We can call it the Lockheed 5-star. Or how about a 737 with just one GE90 for an engine, mounted in the tail?

I've seen the cockpit of a Caravelle once, nothing can be more outdated than that. It's all analogue steam-powered instruments and navigation on the needles.

I would hope that what you wrote forces both groups to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. If you’re booked on AF and the strike happens, you’d get rebooked on DL or another airline right?? As for DY, if they cancel, do they have agreements in place to rebook on other carriers or would it be t...Jump to post
...And it feels somehow extremely artificial. It is much more fun to talk to a 55year-old-LH-flight attendant who is able to recommend some nice wine.

Even with the mountains of money Kraft and Co. have, the cost/value equation doesn't equal out in my mind for two planes, heck even one of this size second hand seems slightly off, but at least one is logical to me.

"Wanna get away" has been part of the Southwest marketing suite for many many years. It's also the name of one of their fare classes.
