Re: Broom de-icing

That's a step up from this one: https://youtu.be/5GIU94dg1ek I immediately remembered that one - found the old thread as well: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=769487 Btw, this Pegasus one is even worse, where the snow didn't get blown off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMZa...

Broom de-icing

Came across this gem from about a month ago. This is a Montenegro Airlines (MGX) Embraer 195 being "de-iced" with a broom at TIV. Perfectly safe as just a light dusting of snow in this sea-side airport (unusual weather) which doesn't have any de-icing equipment. Still, I suppose that pax w...

Re: Smoking on planes!

I remember the HNL-NRT flights, which were 95% Japanese passengers, in the "Good Old Days." Not only was E-zone on the 747 smoking, for a while, so was half of D-zone. Yeah, Japanese are very heavy smokers even nowadays so I can only imagine it was a nightmare. Although I'm still surprise...

Re: Smoking on planes!

Overall, a very balanced post. I appreciate your input. However, smoking net increased the maintenance and cleaning costs, so from an airline operations perspective, you want to ban it. Thanks.

Re: Smoking on planes!

Honestly I think it's rather disrespectful to us ground staff. While I don't suffer from asthma or lung conditions, I do have the right by Dutch law to have a smoke-free workplace. Well, technically you're on foreign soil when entering a foreign plane, so your Dutch law right might not apply there....
