1TV Rus just showed some pictures, apparently only smaller pieces were found and reports say, there have been falling burning parts in the sky. So it seems the airplane blew up mid air. I'll post a source, once I get one on the net. If the aircraft blows up mid-air you would likely find much larger...Jump to post
First of all, it is NOT the security staff, it is AF staff. This procedure might be new for you, but it is common practice worldwide. EUROWINGS is doing exactly the same at their hub in Cologne, but most often I have this seen in Malaysia (but I have to confess at the old LCCT). Ok then, explain wh...Jump to post
While security should generally treat you in a nice way, the 12 kg limit is a limit . You aren't supposed to go over it, even if the official policy is a 0.9 kg discrepancy. If you plan to take more, buy the ticket with a checked suitcase in the first place. Take less than 12 kg, and nobody will bo...Jump to post

If hand luggage is overweight by a small margin, you can always put something from your bag in a pocket... Also, some carriers accept a separate camera bag and such. Rules ARE rules, and they’re there for a reason, but of course, agents should be polite. One thing that may make the Securitas agents...Jump to post
A word of warning to all passengers flying AF from CDG, (my experience is from 2F only but is probably the same in other terminals). As you probably know, following numerous terrorist attacks in France, airport security has been heightened, this can easily be seen with the employment of private secu...Jump to post
Pure dreams, however Boom has circa 70 orders... or almost 4x the amount of concorde's aver made, including the 2 prototypes and pre-productions examples. I hate to interfere with your little fantasy here but it's worth noting that Concorde's order book numbered above 100 for some time, and as of f...Jump to post
T3 has increased its security lines by 3 gates ready for next summer. Previously only lanes 4/5/6/9/10/11 were in full operation. Lanes 2/7 and 8 are being brought into full use. Lane 2will be fast track only, but just awaiting a new body scanner to be put in. It’s also put in more info boards, mor...Jump to post
Taking things a bit off subject but will Boeing do something about A350 ULR, I know it's a niche area, but it'll replace the 777-200LR pretty well I think and give even more, range is to be 9700NM according to Airbus, 777-8 will have 8700 IIRC.Jump to post
Good for MAN, however they should really do something about security lines and border control. More flights are great but it means if you don't plan that passing through security at MAN takes anywhere in between 15 to 45 minutes you're probably not going to be on time. Same goes for border control, ...Jump to post
A failure that big isn't a mechanical defect on all engines, otherwise other airlines would've already caught acute engine cannibalism. Either an individual defect in construction or laziness from the ground crew, who replaced used compressor shafts with surplus TSR2 onesJump to post
Short answer: Engine was starving and it ate itself.
Long answer: AF mechanics got bored and found that surplus TSR2 LP compressor shafts fit on GP7200. TSR2 LP compressor shaft did its job perfectly.
Slightly off topic here, but another reason for Airbus trying to keep A380 alive is the unions. I'm probably blowing this out of proportion, but a388 final assembly is in France. In this neck of the woods the unions are still strong, too strong the way I see it. Airbus will be very red in the face w...Jump to post

With all this talk on Boeing launching 797/MoM soon, would investing in Boeing and shorting Airbus be a good idea? Also, I think any Airbus response is basically the TRUE MoM, a 757 replacement, Boeing know this, which is why they're putting the 767 on steroids. Any A322/A321-neo-plus would decimate...Jump to post
