Re: Diverted by floods: QF SYD-BNE-GLT return

Enjoyed the report and photos! Had to sit through a gusting 40-something knots approach into Amsterdam last March. I heavily disliked the sensation of movement, so I understand where your fear is coming from. Keep on flying, you'll do great!

Re: AF and BOG plans after A340 retirement

And to get back to your original question; the A332 takes a +/- 5000kgs penalty due to the elevation of the airport. Total penalty for the 772ER is tenfold.

Re: AF and BOG plans after A340 retirement

KL's 772ER is limited to 240000KGS TOW from Bogota (ISA). Cali is better at 265000KGS. That is a lot of payload earned with 1 extra stop.

RE: What Flights Follow Transatlantic Tracks?

Airlines have a choice when filing a flight plan. The North Atlantic Tracks have been established to organise traffic between Europe and North America due to the complicated meteorological conditions. A jetstream running from roughly Alaska to North Eastern Europe prevents aircraft from flying fixed...

RE: 737 Airplane Flight Manual

Every company has its own documents, and I´m pretty sure all the larger airliners have electronic pdf versions of their manuals. I guess you would just have to ask for them.

RE: Landing (Touchdown) Speed

Do you mean vertical or horizontal speed? If you mean vertical speed, I'd say for a comfortable landing they aim at about -50 to -300fpm. Of course, any landing you can walk away from is a good one, but that doesn't mean you can slam a Cessna 172 or a Boeing 747 on the runway at -700fpm at touchdown...

Steve, I've checked several FCOMs (A330 B747 B777 MD11) and all these documents specify that true heading ops are only operated in the so called keyhole shaped polar regions. To be more precise; north of 82N or north of 70N between 080W and 130W, or south of 82S or south of 60S between 120E and 160E...
