I don't think it is,

He's not saying, 'WOW LOOK HOW DIRTY THIS PLANE IS!', I think its ok to comment on whats in the photo, but trying to make them open it by asking them questions (you know, 'can you see all the planes?' 'can you see the bird behind it?' etc).

Because if you look at the floor, there's alot of crap down there, its not exactly what they normally look like when you take cabin shots (if you get on before, and the cabin is all in pristene condition etC).

blablabla!

personally i visit this site to see pictures of aircraft i would not normally be able to see, also i like to see some of the marvelous photographers that have some excellent shots posted on here.

i do not see the amazement in looking at the inside of a cabin.

what if i took a photo of the inside of a bus / coach , how many hits would that generate? same thing in my opinion.

i will be flying soon but i know i wont be taking a photo of the inside of the cabin at 35,000ft just to get pic of the century!!!

how many more of you share my opinion or how many of you disagree?

Hello everbody Big grin

to get it right: I don't know even myself why this photo is so popular, but I'm happy with it as you can understand - haha.  Wink/being sarcastic

The remark is correct and short. I tell what the aircraft was: dirty.

The pic was made after first eating, but the aircraft was dirty and ugly before the departure.

But nice that *somebody* feels not good when seeing such a photo....

how is that a cheap hit?

Trying hauling your ass up on the roof of your local airport. Maybe we'll get lucky and see you on CNN. Anyone can take an interior picture of an airplane, all you need is a ticket.

Am I over reacting? Maybe, but I'm not going to take shit from a punk who bad mouths the photogs of this site on other sites forums...

I appreciate what you say Ryan but here's a different perspective. Every airline publishes supposed in flight pictures of the cabin in an effort to persuade people to fly with them and what you see in the pictures is generally quite different from how it is in reality. I've seen BA's material for World Traveller and it looks great, lots of happy people with smiling kids etc but the reality is this:

I gonna agree with Royal that LTU shots seems to be a sort of cheap hits, however we all do it from time to time to boost our rating I guess. The photo put up by Matthew/Qantas744 is very decent cabin shot, thats what I prefer more. However as you know, shots involve with people even just their back draws interest to the large base of viewers here. It is a great way to get hits.(I did it 1-2 times too!)

Tom

I think I live close to your list in some way  Big grin
no blimps, NEVER
no helicopters, NEVER
no cabins, A FEW INTERESTING ONE
no military, ONE ONLY SO FAR, MORE TO COME
no digital, FAILED
no boring ramp, FAILED SOMETIMES
no Qantas, I HAVE FEW ONLY FROM WHERE I LIVE
no comments, FAILED
not too many in one day, OK
no "home" aircraft at hub airports, I DO WELL ON THAT
no people, OK
no towers, OK
no gate shots, NEVER BECAUSE IT IS CLUTTERED
no fuji,.... COMPLETELY FAILED


Final thought: Bring on more just airplane shots!!

Implying that you must click on the photo to see what's going on. Cheap hit.

Hello everybody,

why get I accused of "cheap hits" if I just place a picture of a normal cabin here??

 Big grin I could also have posted my pic of the engine-vortex, but this one got rejected

This is not too Mirrodie but more to Royal...

Aren't some people taking the pictures at a.net too serious?

Is it soo important maybe to have more hits than another, to reach the one million hits status faster than another?

Sigh...

I don't see why the cabin shot goes more about cheap hits, than the DL B763 picture that Continental posted...

Not that I have something against the caption of the DL B763, but the same goes for the LT A330.
