It was a PITA when the inevitable aircraft change occurred and NLH was put on the flight because of the different config as compared to all the other 744s. I can't remember for the life of me now what the config was. Maybe I've just erased that period from my mind  <img src="http://cdn-www.airl...

Maybe someone can explain how all this "God" stuff started.
