It's not that bad of a film by 70's standards. But what gets it for me is when George Kennedy open the cockpit window and shoots a gun while flying along..... Great actor though. When your plane doesn't come equipped with countermeasures, you improvise! I just want to know how Patroni went from a l...Jump to post
If BA have reduced it to one weekly then it's practically being set up to fail.

Boris probably wants access to the BA 772ER that has the wiring and modification in place for Royal tours. A private compartment could be fitted for Her Majesty, and the plane had the back cabin and Business Class section for the flunkeys and hangers-on. It's still flying with BA; one of the G-YMM*...Jump to post

Crew bases in LON, FRA, MAD, NYC, LAX, DFW, HKG, SYD would be interesting.

I think it's entirely possible that VS could operate LAS from both LHR and LGW. Two distinct products, for two different sets of customers. If they can make slots available for the 789 service then why not? And as to engines, 2019 should see all affected engines hopefully upgraded. Their newer 789 ...Jump to post
None of the LHR 777 fleet have the 10-abreast Y configuration which is the most recent upgrade. All B777-300s and all the B777-200s with GE engines have the B787/380 style seating with Thales IFE systems. All remaining RR powered 777-200s still have the older style seating and small Rockwell Collin...Jump to post
I'd be wary of accepting these as gospel as I don't believe BA has ever made a public confirmation of any of these meanings.

The UAE for instance won't allow you into the country if your passport shows you have been to Israel. That keeps getting repeated on this site, but it is NOT true.

The other 777s are G-ZZZx, Z looks a bit like 7. G-BYGA stands for something too, I just can't remember what... So does G-VIIA...is that 7 in roman numerals?

So the faster the UK is out, the better for the EU. Not quite. The UK is the 2nd biggest EU contributor. And will continue to do so until Jan 2021.

Completely different context and you know it. So, taking back control is only ok when you approve of the context. The NPT doesn't have a sanity clause. Everyone signed and ratified it. It is the law.

EI defiantly did this intentionally, G-YMML is a coincidence. G-YMMx is one of the series of registrations BA used for its 777s. “YMM” apparently refers to the year 2000, which was when the first aircraft in the series was delivered. BA usually selects the series of registrations carefully. The oth...Jump to post

How does the UK DXB traffic compare to other countries?
Excellent news, Latte’s all round, now all we need is some pilots to fly it. All the flights will stop because of Brexit allegedly, so they won't need pilots for long.
