RE: Trick Or Treat In The UK

It's a perfectly valid comment. In the US, it seems that Halloween is an event everyone does in good spirit. People dress up, make an effort and it is done in the name of family get-togethers and fun. In the UK, it seems only a way of creating trouble. What supermarket chain ASDA did tells us a lot ...

RE: A380: Could It Get Any Bigger? (conjectural Im

Yes, it was, NZblue. I was going to raise that but thought it to be nit-picking.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/wink.gif" ALT="Big grin"> The A380 therefore is the A320 equivalent as it were. However, I don't think we'll be seeing any A379's or A381's! Infact, it's a rather odd designation sy...

RE: A380: Could It Get Any Bigger? (conjectural Im

Well, I was going to say that the picture looks much more like an A340 airframe than an A380. There are already several variants of the A380 planned and none would appear to be this drastic in changes. Wouldn't the centre of gravity be a little off, if this picture were of a real airplane?

RE: Airbus Launches New Plane

RE: Easyjet Flight To Palma With Only 2 Pax Tonight

Like PF-BHA, I also heard of an aircraft with only 1 passenger aboard. I believe it was an Air France flight. The lone passenger had several cabin crew catering to his every need!!

RE: Where Can I Find Travel Agent-sized Models?

Thanks for the link, N771AN. The model is almost exactly what I want - but the price! I better stick to plastic as of course, the price is more within my budget, however it looks incredible quality. Thanks again. European, that's a good idea. I've searched eBay recently and there's no models that I ...

RE: A380 Livery: Don't Expect Anything Fancy

The Airbus livery is looking a little dated, however it remains classic and attractive in my opinion. The 7E7's livery looks amazing, I must say.

Do you have a link to the new A380 livery? Can't find it anywhere! Thanks!

Thanks Pearson.  Smile I'm an idiot thinking Liverpool lies in the Midlands, however having moved from down South, it seems that way! It's so easy to catch a train to Manchester & Liverpool that it seems that much nearer.

Thanks for the tips. We're flying from Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Are there no walkways there? Having just moved, it's my first time flying from a Midlands airport.

RE: BA A320 G-BUSH "Backing The Bid"

I was expecting a swarve new livery to adorn the plane, but it seems a little lacklustre. I sure hope some planes adopt an Athens-style livery if we were selected, but perhaps it should be done now; while it matters. I've put my name down to "Back The Bid". It'd be great if the Games could return to...

Where Can I Find Travel Agent-sized Models?

For the past fewmonths, I've been looking for British Airways 777 plastic models in a 1:100 scale. I've found some on eBay but I was wondering if any of you know of a place where I can buy directly from the maker. The price on eBay is around £40 + p&p. Is that reasonable? Do you know of any online s...

I think that'd be a great bonus for First Class Membership or standard members if it could be added, but seen as Airliners.net is such a big site, it could drain bandwidth too much!

RE: BMW Unveils New 3 Series

I have to agree with FVILLA. Love it or loathe it, it'll catch your attention in a traffic jam, believe me. Same with the 5- and 7-Series. Perhaps even the 1-Series. I started off wondering what BMW had done to such a classic design such as the present 3-Series. The only car left in the range a true...

Thanks for making me laugh!! Great names there!

Infact, it'll be interesting to see what nickname Singapore Airlines adopts for its fleet of 10 A380s, considering the appropriately-named Megatop 747.

I read Airliner World (am yet to buy the current one) and thoroughly enjoy it. Every aspect is great. Airways is very good too - I bought it for an A3XX special a few years ago, but Airliner World has a great layout and great writers - plus there's pages of news!!

RE: Life After The A380 Hype

First of all, I'd imagine the limelight will still be very much on the A380. Airline orders, what passengers think of the plane, new variations of the monster and of course whether the plane is a success or not. The 7E7 will be a hot topic I'd imagine for the industry, especially with the groundbrea...
