If the person who asked the original question meant an A300 that was not the latest version, then the wording on the heading was very poor. I also understood that the thread talked about the lastest EVER pax A300 built.
I will be flying on an A300 MIA
. I have flown this bird several times. They are large, cramped, uncomfortable but they get me to where I need to go. The last flight I took on it (LIM
) we were delayed over an hour because the automatic locking mechanism for the cargo door malfunctioned. It had to be done manually, and this means that they computers have to be reprogrammed or whatever (I am neither a pilot or a mechanic) and there had to be several people who "signed off" that the doors were locked properly. We sat there forever waiting for this process to be completed. My friend at AA
says that these things happen all the time with the A300 for AA
Faucett. La primera linea aerea del Peru.
