RE: The Last B747 Flight Of Singapore Airlines HKG-SIN

Thanks Sam! Its almost as good as being on the flight itself.
Do you know what will happen to the B747 cockpit crew? Do they carry on flying cargo on the 400Fs or get retrained on the other aircraft in the fleet? If retraining, do they go to a specific type eg B777s?

RE: Garuda Indonesia: The Quantum Leap To Amsterdam

The J seats look amazing, especially the legroom. However I still prefer the IFE screens to be placed at the back of the seat to allow viewing of outside cameras. I do hate stowing away IFE screens! Perhaps the large seat pitch makes it unfeasible, unless an extra large screen is used. Otherwise ano...
