The Lion King 2019 remake: Thoughts?

Afternoon all! Hopefully this will be a cheerful discussion about a remake of one of the most beloved films of all time! I went to see the new film yesterday, I have to admit I was impressed. The visuals, humour and soundtrack were all very good. I felt nervous going to see a remake thinking that it...

Re: What are airport going to do with their A380 gates when they are no longer needed?

Probably turn the one A380 gate into two separate gates. The A380 has a wingspan of 262ft while an A320 is only 117ft. Less than half the wingspan of the A380. So converting one into two should work just fine. BNE already does this, and I'm sure that others do as well. At BNE gates 75 and 76 can ta...
