Quoting Leezyjet (Reply 1): That airline is a disaster waiting to happen !!.
The UK is happy ban other airlines from their airspace... How the hell has Biman slipped through the net???
Obviously I am no expert and do not know about how their aircraft are cared for. But from a passenger perspective this airline is a joke and if I was on one of their aircraft I would seriously be concerned about safety!

Quoting LHRBlueSkies (Reply 5): I agree...why ban PK, who in comparison with BG (and others) weren't in bad shape?
How would you know? Are you an expert? insider? I don't think so. Incidents can happen, and it doesn't mean BG's fleet is in bad shape. Yes, incidents like this shouldn't happen, but they can, even with well maintained aircraft, while badly maintained aircraft can get through without serious incidents, it's, among much more, also a matter of luck.
So please stop the pathetic assumptions about fleet health until you actually get some facts.

Wow, easy tiger! Do you have shares in BG or something....
Actually, working with BG flighs for more years than I care to remember, yes, i guess i've earned the right to make a personal comment on the state of their a/c. Plus speaking to the mx staff who constantly fix has helped give some insight.
What's your claim to flame except being easily excited?!?!

Quoting LHRBlueSkies (Reply 9): How many serviceable a/c do BG have left, now the DC10's are grounded, and 313 -ADE is in DXB?
When were the DC10s Grounded?? Did I miss the thread on that??
You are all right.. BG is a joke.. I remember gettting flamed on here a long time ago for saying something along those lines. But like LHRBlueSkies, I have also worked with BG for nearly 3 years and saw for myself what a real state they are in.
I dont know whether to wish them good luck, or just laugh??
Haven't seen the 10's for a very long time, and their lack of (serviceable) a/c (sorry SandroZRH!!) is one reason why they have gone from 7 flights a week ex-LHR to 5, and even that is looking doubtful...
Don't like seeing any carrier go under, but they don't deserve any loyality - they have been destroyed by corruption and inept management. It was cool yesterday - tech BG 313 on gate 338 - superb 9W 773 on 340!!! Hmmm.....
flying is the safest form of transport - until humans get involved!
