I am afraid that it might actually get worse. Not per se with Covid itself but temperatures are going to drop soon due to autumn and winter coming and we will have people with a cold, people with the flu, people with Covid and it will no help to create an environment without "fear". It wi...Jump to post
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if immunity disappears overtime wouldn't it make more sense to let the healthy part of the population develop immunity as fast as possible? If we apply protective measures to young and old equally we delay the point of herd immunity and we expose those who are at risk fo...Jump to post
Will they somehow compensate the relatives of the 290,000-650,000 yearly victims of the seasonal flu for not having taken similar measures in the past? Or did they just wake up to the reality of infectious diseases? https://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/statements/2017/flu/en/Jump to post
Just some numbers to put things in context: Demographics of Italy: 1 person dies every 50 seconds, that is 1728 deaths per day. At the peak of this 'pandemic' 200 people who have the virus die each day. 90% of those are over 70 and the vast majority were going to die regardless of whether they got c...Jump to post
I sense there is a very uneven level of skills among pilots in the RF. You sometimes get the best piloting and airmanship levels(Ural Airlines Russian version of Sully) and clowns like this guy or the guy who smashed the SSJ at Sheremetyevo until it broke up. They must perform a very thorough inves...Jump to post

People seem to have done the math: 10 sec for the sound to arrive puts the plane about 11000ft away. Landscape seems consistent with the town of Parand, about 1km south of where the ADS-B stopped transmitting. Everything seems to match. I think the cause of the crash is clear.Jump to post

However, given the situation, its unlikely that this will be an open investigation regardless of the cause.

Do you maybe have more information on this? I see tonight they have a single night flight, Tirana at 22.35, and that was cancelled. I wonder if it has something to do with what you wrote. They also had Skopje and Pristina (JP810 and JP890) both at 22.40. But those have been removed from the airport...Jump to post
Why did they go bankrupt? Couldn't they rise prices? Demand is lower?Jump to post
I wonder if he got paid for the flight.Jump to post
They literally "pushed" them back. Gotta wonder if a pneumatic arm at each gate could do the same job by pushing the plane with enough forceJump to post
It is reported the the copilot of the helicopter stayed on the ground to make room for the family of 4, as there are only 5 seats.Jump to post
A couple of things: At an average of 3 million passengers per year since 2004, FR has moved 45 million people. Therefore subsidies amount to just over a euro per person, which is not that much considering that even urban transport is subsidied at >1€ per journey in Barcelona. 2. Tourism can't keep g...Jump to post
I don't quite understand their new strategy of opening bases in western Europe. Lower labor costs in eastern Europe is what brought them success. Now they are trapped in places like London and Vienna with a lot of competition and the next downturn may be just around the corner... Perhaps they should...Jump to post

These A321 smoke incidents seem to be happening more and more often.Jump to post
Wow, what a scandal. Ryanair would lose half of their passengers with these regulations.Jump to post
I'm not a smoker and I don't understand why they had to close those spaces. They could have charged an entrance fee and put the money to better use. $1 or $2 would have been fairly reasonable and that amounts to a lot of money at the end of the day.Jump to post
They forgot to switch this off. Happens all the time.

How can a drunk female pose any kind of danger to the aircraft? Can't two people hold her until the plane lands? I understand the diversion but why dispatch two fighter jets?Jump to post
