All together it has been a fantastic weekend guys and girls! Cannot thank you enough for that!
I hope there is enough room on my respected users list
BTW when we landed I thought our a/c returned to MAN
in the pissing rain!
I'll come back with a more extensive report later. I'm full of my flight back home with Airkas1 now:
Kas and I had a very, very pleasant flight back home. In my case the best flight ever. Only 33 pax. Had a nice chat with the three very friendly and gorgeous F/A's who were very interested in our hobby, and a visit to the flight deck.
I think the f/a noticed we boarded the plane while shooting one picture after another and decided to give us a little extra attention. The drinks she offered me aren't included in the service usually. All together it really felt like she was giving us a special treatment. I don't know Kas, do you really think she was flirting with me?
While chatting with her I requested a visit to the flight deck. She said that was out of the question first but she asked it the captain anyway. She gave us a sign that it was OK
and said that it was very unique and that it almost never happens. But after she said to the captain I had a AMS
security pass it was no problem at all.
After the visit they were more than willing to be photographed. In fact they asked us to do it:
When we were telling that we were in MAN
for a spotters meeting and that we were in contact with each other by internet the first thing the most right F/A said was: "Airliners.net?". She is a regular visitor at the photo section. She also said it wasn't fair that we made pictures of the a/c standing next to us at the gate and didn't make a picture of 'their' a/c. We said we did while we were boarding. The girl on the left told us she has been to Farnborough once and was very impressed. The girl in the middle is suspected to be flirting with me????? Probably wishful thinking.
I'll certainly arrange an AMS
meet. I already visited a few hotels. The dates are either 4/5 sept, 23/24 or 30/31. There is a convention in between so the fares for a hotel room will be sky high then. Eventually you can choose out of 4 hotels. I'm going to find out when the convention exactly is. As soon as I know it I will open a thread for some sort of poll about the dates.
Oh and some were talking about MSN
messenger. Well my MSN
name is email@example.com. I only use this for chatting but I'm not on-line very often. For regular/normal e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or via a.net.
All the best,
