Re: Irish 8/18: An august institution

Seems there are delays across the board, EI109 is 5 hours behind. 2 and 3 hour delays earlier in the day.

EI 145 is approaching Dublin.

Edit: seems a technical issue on EI-LAX.

Re: Alaska Airlines (allegedly?) deplanes allergic 15 year old UM instead of an emotional support cat

An emotional support cat? Is this for real?! If the cat had already boarded then the safer option is to not allow the allergic girl to board. When are ESA’s gonna be banned? They’re not really a thing in Europe, why is it a thing in America? Are you Americans so inherently emotionally unstable that ...

Re: Updated: AS employee steals and crashes Q400 at SeaTac

Probably the brakes smoking. Someone who doesn't know how to taxi would use the brakes to control speed. This is a really naive question, but how else would you control speed? I’m guessing that riding the brakes is not a good thing, as it wouldn’t Be in a car. Nor is it the only way of controlling ...

Re: British Airways deboards Indian family over ‘crying’ of 3-year-old child

Why is the aviation regulator of India trying to get something from the UK regulator? What’s the jurisdiction connection?

Re: British Airways deboards Indian family over ‘crying’ of 3-year-old child

No, I am slating posters for defending BA with the premise that BA is so awesome that such a thing will never happen. All due respect sir, I don’t think that’s what they were doing. I think they were defending BA because there is likely much more to the story, that none of us know about. With due e...

I don’t think that’s what they were doing. I think they were defending BA because there is likely much more to the story, that none of us know about. Must be the language barrier, the way I read the above posts, BA FA would never do or say such things. That has been disproven with snap chat video. ...

Re: British Airways deboards Indian family over ‘crying’ of 3-year-old child

You keep slating posters for suggesting there’s more to the story. It’s the same thing. Usually when comments get posted on this site about human behavior, there is always more to the story than Is ever portrayed in the media. The media aren’t looking for the truth, they’re looking for a story. The...

i don't think the story cannot be dismissed as 'clearly false' by someone who wasn't present there. Similarly it can’t be verified as being accurate by someone who wasn’t present there. I am not claiming it is accurate. Nor does the newspaper that published this. You keep slating posters for sugges...

Wasn't there another recent incident of BA FA's rant on snapchat about Nigerians? Oh yeah. To the many posters who have defended BA here purely on the belief that such a thing will never be done by a BA crew member, there is clearly some precedence for deplorable behaviour by BA crew. Link to the i...

Re: British Airways deboards Indian family over ‘crying’ of 3-year-old child

Why is the word bloody racist against Indians? Also, there are 3 sides to every story. India is a huge market for BA, I’d imagine they’re more than willing to deal with this as amicably as possible, lest they loose a substantial chunk of the market share to the sub continent. And a word for the OP,...

Seriously. That doesn't even sound believable Agreed. This is BA Long Haul. An FA getting more animated than "just above comatose" and speaking louder than a mumble? That would be a first. Pardon my ignorance but LCY-TXL is long haul? It’s short haul. Why so defensive? If you let discussi...

On future night flying and that being low-yielding, the Canaries don't strike me as time-sensitive or high-yielding anyway? Cheers, C. I have only got one explicit experience of night flying: from Dublin to Split in Croatia, via Cork. It was horrible, because you’re tired and because you loose the ...

Re: Time for AA to monetize JFK slots and Terminal space?

If slots in JFK go, or are being rumored to be going, why would any airline buy slots from AA? Instead of holding out and seeing if there is any truth to the rumor? This question doesn’t make sense on too many levels.

Re: Why so many LAX Overhead Pics?

What really irritate me about these photos is that they’re classed under the “air to air” category. Correct me if I’m wrong, but that’s “air to ground”. AmIRight. I think you are right, and I've done photos like these from Sydney. I don't classify them as air-to-air. Real air to air is photographin...

Hmm. With the first batch of 321LR replacing the 757s, will IE have enough metal to cover new routes next year? I was under the impression the first 321LRs were for expansion, with the last few to come in replacing the 757s. I can’t find it right now, but did the fleet planning from the IAG investo...
