A Peter Max Ac On A Conveyor Belt In Irish Avation

Sat Feb 02, 2008 5:09 am

Am I the only one who can't understand the fascination with these threads? The BA off the runway is approaching terminal status as well. I just wanted to vent - and to ask the rest of you; which thread do you wish never existed (although you read it anyway.)

My top five:
Plane on a conveyor belt. Who cares? Is this ever going to happen.
NWA MD-80 replacements.
Anything with Peter Max.
Irish aviation. The place is slightly larger than West Virginia!
Finally - A vs. B. Can we agree that they both make outstanding products?

Soon to join the list:
BA off runway.

Not that this thread is quite the same but one of the most infuriating posts I see regularly is "Mods, I don't like this thread - please lock it".  sarcastic 

About 95% of threads in Civil and Non-Aviation don't interest me in the slightest. So what?

On the other hand, once a thread passes a certain threshold in the number of posts, you start to get a lot of duplicates because some people can't be bothered to read it before posting and don't care if their point has already been beaten to death. That's also annoying.

We do try our best, but we Irish are naturally loquacious; I'm just curious, though, because the Irish threads are not the only country-specific threads. There are threads relating to NZ, Singapore, Turkey, India and various other countries too; why pick on ours; is it just the thread titles?

I find it curious that after ten years of A.net, people don't appreciate that these forums are an international community of over 70,000 people; I find it quite pleasant that people of various different nationalities can find their own little communities on the A.net forums. It doesn't do any harm to anyone; indeed, our participants find it very pleasant and so it should be. As with any thread on any issue, if you don't like them, don't bother with them. Like most of us, I'm sure, I only contribute to a maximum of 5-10% of threads, but I don't get irritated with the rest. A little respect for diversity, perhaps?

What a pathetic thread this is. Are you so bitter, that you have to go and start a thread to moan about other people enjoying themselves. Granted, A-v-B, and NW MD-80 threads are bit annoying, but what's wrong with the Irish, or Peter Marx ones? They are places where enthusiasts can discuss everything regarding aviation, to other topics of interest.
I suspect those giving out about the Irish threads, have never really done more than stop, glance, and turn up their noses. If you paused, and had a look, you'd see a small community of Irish, at home, abroad, in an airport lounge, as well as some English, and Finns as well, all having a good time.
It does nothing to harm anyone else, and although we have our quarrels from time to time, we almost always enjoy ourselves.

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 3):

You're spending too much time on A.net, go do something more creative. Just exactly how long did you spend finding the titles of those threads anyway?

Also, can anyone come up with a reason as to why the threads bother you other than "they just do" or "they're just pointless", and explain why they annoy you, and how they are pointless?

And also a big well done to Kaitak, for keeping our little community alive and well.

Quite a lot really:
Aer Lingus - JetBlue announcement, selling over one million seats on it's website in January, battle with unions over cost cuts, Gold Circle Club, route developments and the Belfast base.

Ryanair - 27% drop in profits, constant route developments, controversy and it's battle with Aer Lingus.

Aer Arann - New routes, jets and more passengers than ever.

CityJet - Started SNN-CDG today to help connectivity after loosing the Aer Lingus LHR-SNN route, possibly looking at LCY.

Dublin - 23 million passengers in 2007, Etihad going daily, more long-haul routes from Aer Lingus and other airlines, Terminal 2, Terminal 1 extension, new runway and growing competition between EI and FR.

Cork - Aer Lingus expansion and possible US routes from American carriers using 757s.

Shannon - under pressure as Open Skies starts, new routes with Ryanair and CityJet, holding on to it's Aer Lingus long-haul routes despite romours EI will leave SNN and head for BFS with the A330s, keeping most of it's services from American Carriers even after the stopover is removed.

Regional Airports - Still growing with FR and mainly RE.

Then theres the usual chat between members so I'd say there's plenty to talk about.

Dont like the thread, dont read it. Dont like the title, tough.

About 10 minutes. I didn't intend to spend that much time but I got carried away!

Just for the record, I am not against your little Irish community. I participate in the MAN threads all the time and appreciate them. All I have an issue with is the thread titles that I can't avoid and really, I can't!

I'm not sure why you all have your knickers in a twist though over the fact I and a few others don't like them? Carry on as normal, we're allowed to have an opinion on things.

So what happens so often in Irish aviation? I haven't actually opened one of those threads but I can't imagine much happens.

Aer Lingus change the font colour on safety cards?
Piper EI-ABC had an oil change?
The window in Dublin's tower jammed open?

Seriously, what happens over there in Ireland to fill these threads?

Quoting RicciPettit (Reply 25):

Quite a lot. Let's see Ireland, just in case you haven't realised, is now quite a wealthy country just in case you ahdn't noticed, and despite our small size, has an ever-increasing immigrant population (in the service sector most people seem to be eastern European now, in construction all you hear are English (UK) accents and Polish, etc.
*For numbers of international passengers, in 2006 Dublin airport was ranked 18th busiest airport in the world, putting it in 9th place in the ranking of European airports. 2007 saw figures increase.
*Aer Lingus our national airline, amongst the older carriers around, was quoted along with Swissair and Sabena is being one of the 3 national airlines that wouldn't survive the post 9/11 period by aviation experts, but they got it wrong with EI, and since then we have seen the biggest growth ever in the history of EI (fleet and route expansion amongst other things).
*Must also say, given my links with Airbus, is that Aer Lingus is one of the more highly esteemed carriers by the engineers and sales-people here at Airbus, despite its relatively small size.
*Open Skies, this agreement has been of major benefit to Irish aviation.
*Ryanair, just in case you've forgotten is an IRISH airline, so lots to talk about there. Also interesting to discuss the challenges faced by Aer Lingus with FR at it's home hub, DUB.
*Ireland is home to some of the world's largest aircraft leasing companies.
*Lots of international a/c maintenance done at DUB and SNN.
*DUB is undergoing huge expansion, with new piers being added a second terminal is now finally under construction.
*EI has just opened its first "foreign" base at Belfast, quite a historic move for both the airline and given the obvious "political" history of that region. And in doing so, has to a certain extend turned its back on SNN.
*And basically as we're Irish, we're a happy, friendly and chatty bunch. We don't moan about others (unlike some) and enjoy sharing our aviation. Many other communities on this site have started their own threads, with a rapid increase given the popularity of the Irish thread.
And of course every now and then we get an honoorary visit from Pe@rson (Michael O'Leary in disguise I'm convinced  Wink who livens things up amongst what I will admit is a fairly pro Aer Lingus thread).
ALso interesting to say our thread does attract quite a bit of input from foreign nationals who are also interested in Irish aviation, a country that despite its size, has been of great relevance in the histor
A few other people with nothing better to do in the past have criticsed these "national" threads, to which the Mods have constantly answered back that there is nothing to criticise, it helps clean up the forums, and they will stay.
Hope that answers your question.

Considering Ireland is home to Europes biggest airline (Ryanair)  duck , it's no surprise there are so many threads.

Now if only FlyGlobespan could grow as large as Ryanair  duck 
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Anything with Peter Max.

Sorry folks, what is that plaese?

Also, I'm not saying get rid of them or they shouldn't be here but they do bug me: NW DC-9 threads and

BLOODY COCORDE THREADS!! WHO CARES IF IT"S BEEN 5 YEARS SINCE THEY WERE RETIRED!!!!! (Now I only hope 'madameconcorde dosn't kick my #$@)

Otherwise I love the Irish Aviation threads. Never ever read one but I love the titles!
Just say NO to scabs.

You may want to put on some sunglasses before clicking the link.........

It was recently repainted and no longer retains that livery.
