Norwegian newspaper VG claims it was a medical emergency and they were too heavy for landing at OSL, so they circled for a while to burn fuel before eventually deciding to divert to CPH instead...:

Amazing picture. Looks quite dangerous though.
From looking at the FR image above, it appears the Virgin was "over-taking" the Egypt Air on to the runway - why would that happen? Unless the 330 was going backwards, it isn't possible for the winglet of the A330 to connect with the *leading* edge of the 777. It would appear as if the 77...Jump to post
If only I had money enough to fly F or J. This economy class "upgrade" is a nightmare;

Too short to fly also depends on whether you're connecting or not. Take HAJ-AMS, a 40 min flight, vs a 3.5 hour drive. I'd rather drive if I had to be in Amsterdam, but if flying onward from Amsterdam then I would rather fly, there's probably a truckload of other examples where flying makes sense if...Jump to post
Flown a dozen times on the A380 myself, and can't recall any particularly hard landing. I also believe it has a lot to do with where in the aircraft you are sitting. Was reminded about this video.

SAS has made many network cuts over the years. It had to cut SEA back in 2009, and BKK in 2013 because it ''wasn't profitable'' despite the fact that it had high load factors. There is no way SAS would fly to AKL. SAS will never return to SEA (most likely because of too much European and Icelandair...Jump to post
According to FR24 a 39 year old 742 EP-SHB has been flying on both 18 and 19 july. Anyone known where she has been, or is this just a glitch of FR24?

I've noticed that many EK flights from southern Europe to DXB have a bit weird routing. They don't do it always but is seems to be "preferred" by EK when looking at some flight history.

Has Bahrain opened another routing for QR planes? QR93(DOH-ZRH) just flew past Bahrain towards Kuwait. Perhaps ICAO has intervened and has knocked some sense into the parties. It does appear that quite a few QR flights are going further west in the Bahrain FIR. I suspect that they are in internatio...Jump to post

Will be interesting to see what happens with QR400 DOH-AMM later today. Looking at a map the only way in for QR is through Iraq. Or can they fly over the Red Sea even though it is in Egypt/KSA FIR?Jump to post
Like I said on another thread. The UAE airlines flying to Qatar which are EY, EK and flydubai are also losing revenue here. Qatar is only one airline while three are losing out in the UAE. QR alone has more flights to the UAE then EY/EK/FZ have combined to Qatar. In addition the UAE is a major mark...Jump to post

I've noticed ET's 787 parked at Oslo, and when I checked the schedule, I saw the plane is sitting in OSL for basically the whole day before returning OSL-ARN-ADD.

Maybe I missed it but I followed the three test A350-1000's for a while on a FR24, and so far I've not seen a single flight go higher then FL410, where the 359's routinely go to FL430. Just a coincidence or is the heavier 1000 less effective at higher altitude than the 900?Jump to post
