I agree on the first 3.
I wish #4 wasn't true but sadly Hong Kong is no more part of the once glorious British Empire since it had fallen into the evil hands of communism!!!!
#5: I've never flown on United but I like the scheme.

Anyway, I think I missed the meaning of this thread, could you help me in understanding it? You know, it looks very very stupid so I think there must be a hidden meaning that justify it.

Ciao

I agree with you on the first four but have completely different view on number 5 which I hardly find funny at all. United Airlines have the best livery and the service is very good. People have different opinions but saying something simply SUCKS is hardly intelligent and it made this into the kind of post that you are trying to mock. The777Man

I tend to agree with the first part of #5. My first long-haul flight plus the first time I fly solo was on UA going HKG-SEA-DEN-AUS in Aug. 1986. Delay after delay eventually resulted in me being stranded at DEN overnight.

That was my first flight on UA. I haven't returned since.

Its a matter of opinion wether or not you like UAL's c/s. In my opinion its one of the best c/s of North America . Also its a matter of wether you've been lucky or not and maybe received good or bad service on UAL . Maybe some people like UAL and some dont.

I think alot of people have to learn:

AIRBUS AND BOEING ARE JUST AS GOOD AS EACH OTHER

ALL THE AIRLINES CAN BE GREAT AT ANY ONE TIME, YOUR EXPERIENCE IS JUST YOUR FLIGHTS, AND ITS NOT THAT BAD EVERY TIME.

BRISTOL IS ACTUALLY BUSY, CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF

CONCORDE WILL FLY AGAIN, AND WAS NOT THE FIRST SUPERSONIC JETLINER TO FLY.

RUSSIANS BUILD JUST AS GOOD AIRCRAFT AS EUROPEANS AND YANKS


Well, that may look completely stupid but i don't care as long as you get the message!

If you suspect that a topic might belong in another forum, but aren't sure, don't say anything.

Agreed with everythign except #5. Hkgspotter1, have you even flown United? They are great! I always have good experiences with them, and the service is as good as any other!


BTW, the United scheme on a 747-400 is just the best looking plane on earth.

I like the UAL livery. It better than the boring white and polished metal I'm seein now adays. Qantas is not spelled with a U. That I agree on.

Just another thing to add, while everyone is giving there two cents,
"spelt" is not a word, but rather "spelled" is correct. Just a little grammer lesson for ya there, now back to aviation, boy look at that plane go.

Isn't "spelt" the accepted British version of "spelled?"

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, both spelt and spelled are correct.

P S there is no accepted "British version" of any word in the English language. The English spelling will always be the correct, accepted, spelling.

What the US and others do with words like colour, favour etc. is a localised bastardisation of the language, often coming from the variations in spelling from prior to the first dictionaries which formalised standard English spellings in the 18th century. It just so happens that the US hasn't caught up yet  Smile

I agree with all of them. Except 3 and 4 which I don't understand all that much.

25 Catpac : I fully agree wiith EGGD,...
26 Tupolev154B2 : JUST BECAUSE THE SEAT PITCH OF SEATS ON AN AIRCRAFT SUCK DOESN'T MEAN THE AIRCRAFT SUCKS. BLAME THE AIRLINE.
27 Rafabozzolla : - Brazil main airport and Varig's hub is São Paulo, not Rio. PhilB Just a note: Languages are alomst like living creatures and can not be tamed. I ca
28 Ben88 : Yea we're so slow we almost forgot to save your ass in WW2.
29 Max Q : Wherever you go there you are.
30 Red Panda : I can hardly agree with you. I don't see how glorious the British Empire is. It's a glory that HK went back to China. Steman, Don't be fooled by Briti
31 Monocleman : I agree with Steman and Ben88. Nothing else to say.
32 Post contains images PhilB : Rafabozzolla, The at the end of the post was meant to denote humour. Language is a constantly changing and vibrant medium and, in fact, a great number
33 Swake : how's Quantaz doin these days?
34 Steman : Hello Red Panda, didn't you get the sarcasm in my post? Well, I am Italian, not British, so maybe my English is not so good and you misunderstood what
35 BA FOREVER : I found that United Airlines from LHR to JFK... the service was OK but not too great. Nothing much to brag about, but not really anything to complain
36 Post contains images TexStud323 : question for you Hkgspotter1, do those issues truly anger you? Seems the only thing that is "flaming and burning to bits" is your passion to have Qant
37 Neo : Whatever, let's move on people!!!
38 RoastedNutz : Although I'm sure your intentions for this post were good, the condescending manner in which you posted it makes YOU look like the dumbass.
