RE: VS Product Placement/Livery In "Friends"

I just had a look at the episode and saw it too. I think what happened was when they were converting from the old 4:3 to 16:9 aspect ratio, they needed new clips, in 16:9 format, and probably used a newer VS video.

RE: Melbourne Airport Hit By Fuel Shortage

With an incident like this, could Melbourne be telling airlines 'fill up at home, we haven't got too much'?

On a side note, I met Barry Abrams of BARA last year, great guy with a very self-depreciating sense of humour.

That'd be one hell of an endurance flight for the A380. Having a look at FlightAware now, it says the flight time was 15 hours 18 minutes, a somewhat regular time.
