Re: British passport holders can't add carry-over any months to their new passports

One point on East European migration.

Only 4 countries allowed full and immediate access.

The UK was one of them.

Re: Missouri votes down right to work law

The point being you do not have the right to work. You have the right to apply for a job.

IF you get the job, you can take it without joining the Union.

Re: Missouri votes down right to work law

IMO, the whole ‘Right to work’ thing is a joke.

You are not entitled to have a job.

You are able to APPLY for a job without being unionised.

Not the same thing at all.

Re: Swissair 111 crash 20 years ago

Reading the aviation-safety.net record of the ATH crash is quite interesting.

The aircraft finished up 80M beyond the end of the runway and 4M below the airport elevation.

Iirc, there was a drainage ditch just beyond the end of the runway.

So they blamed the pilots.

IMO, pilot pay will always be affected by aircraft size. The revenue capacity of a CRJ will always be less than a WB. Also if CRJ become too expensive then people will not fly. In that case, you lose the CRJ flight with no corresponding increase in mainline. The issue is will pilots accept a B scale...
