Re: Sri Lankan Airlines puts flight marshals on planes, tourist numbers to drop by 500,000

Yeah this is really going to hurt Sri Lanka but the government has no one to blame but themselves. My wife and I even looked at going to SL for an upcoming anniversary but now? Not a chance. Which is too bad - seems like there really are some unique and luxurious experiences to be had there. Not su...

Re: Delays to LHR arrivals?

Seems that arrivals from the east, via LAM, are first circling over the North Sea at or over FL300, then over north Essex and finally in the Lambourne hold - I don't think I've ever seen it like that!

The reason I looked at LAM is because I live underneath it.

Re: British Airways kicks 20 passengers off flight because heat wave made plane too heavy

Pretty common in high temperatures. The other day it was 36 degrees in Köln-Bonn, and we were quite limited. The airline said the blistering 95 degree heat affected the air pressure, meaning aircraft could not take off unless they shed weight. Must be a typo, there is absolutely no way the temperat...
