RE: Load Factors BA0093 LHR-YYZ

Thank you!

LHRjc always seems to help me in this area!

Let's hope for an upgrade, something to distract me at T5 rather than buy all the Easter chocolate!

Anything that points towards aircraft being greener on the ground has to be heavily considered and not dismissed out of hand. Like only using one engine on taxiing, or electric engines. Virgin Atlantic did try towing their aircraft to the runway, but discontinued it. The rail industry in the UK has ...
