p.s. A South African friend made an interesting remark: What white person would get a fake SA passport???

Re: Ryanair forcing South Africans to do Afrikaans tests to prove passports are real

As a Dutchman I was able to understand all questions and had 2/3 of answers correct, guess that would have meant failure. Clearly discrimination, like giving a French language test to all Canadians to proof they are really Canadians ..

Re: A330MRTT News, Orders, Production And Testing

"This will be the last Dutch registered example, the remainder will be based in Germany." Please note that all 9 (not 8) will be Dutch registered, not just the first 5. For example T-059 (cn 1982) and T-060 (cn 1989) are already in production. Plus several of the delivered ones are already...

Re: Flying on an old dutch lady into Australia's North West

Thanks for this interesting report on that off-the-beaten path routing. Great to see the Fokker 100s filling this niche market in Oz. Miss seeing and flying them in Europe. Interesting that the F27 was so successful in Australia many moons ago but no brand new F100s/F70s were ever ordered in Austral...

Don't think it was reported here before: the Luftwaffe will get 2 A321NEOs according to attached article. The aircraft were ordered by Lufthansa before but LH won't be take due to Covid-19. It will get a convertible cabin that can be used for either military use or accommodate up to 14 patients. Gue...

Nice to see a report on a rare plane and unusual destination so thanks for posting. However, if you are such a nervous wreck why don't you stay home and don't venture to exotic destinations or aircraft?

Re: Over the Blue Lagoon: Bora Bora French Polynesia with Air Tahiti and the Conrad

Thanks for the very nice report on an odd destination. Good to hear and see this positive perspective as I had heard a colleague complaining a few years ago how Bora Bora had been disappointing to her and not worth the long journey.

Re: A Class beyond First : LH J, LX J/F and SQ Suites

Pretty amazing flight combo. 3200 euro for that combo of flights is not a bad deal though still quite a bit of money. Have been on C class only flights US-Japan that cost double or triple and didn't had all that luxury. Thanks for all the details that you provided, nice read!

Re: To the Oil Rigs of Venezuela: Closing an Oil Rig!

Thanks for taking the time to read this great report of this very exotic trip. What was the registration of that Bell? Got confused when you mentioned both US registered and unmarked. Guess unmarked like in no titles but would be interesting to know the reg.

Re: A Tribute to ET302.

Hi Eastafspot, The F100 seems to be mainly routing between Mogadishu-Hargeisa though reception is spotty in the Horn so flightaware doesn't pick up all flights. Not sure about lease conditions but count yourself lucky to have seen it! Never been to JIB, only NBO, WIL, ADD, DAR and KGL in East Africa...

Thanks for the nice tribute Eastafspot. I flew a few of your routes via NBO and ADD so good memories. Your Air Djibouti "DC9" is actually an Air Djibouti/Red Sea Airlines Fokker 100. Registered UP-F1009 and leased from Bek Air since June 2018 and believe it is active, a very nice catch! No...
