28./.29. January 2020, MUC-LUX return to visit our HQ.
The husband flew ORD-CPH-MUC on 12 March 2020, about the second-to-last SK flight out after Trump announced the EU travel ban. He was supposed to stay a week longer.
Thanks everyone. Now I know a bit more. Really appreciate it.Jump to post
We were once stuck on the tarmac in a 744, and somebody came into the cabin by way of the nose wheel and through a hatch on the cabin floor. Can anyone enlighten me how that worked?Jump to post
I guess emergency landings don't count, because I never got anything after mine.Jump to post
You mean, instead of selling the planes for real money to real people, exchanging them for worthless shares of a nebulous outfit? Precisely. C'mon! Avatar Airlines comes knocking at your door, offering you such a unique opportunity! Success guaranteed! Who in their right mind would opt for the drea...Jump to post
Something in my eye... Wonderful stories, thanks for sharing.Jump to post
Regarding the yellow, I was told many moons ago that one looks less competent in bright colours and especially yellow and should always opt for dark colours and no or very little patterns when wanting convey... whatever. I was wearing a yellow tartan skirt and had stopped listing by then. I would at...Jump to post
I've always liked it. Yes, it's boring when you're going to the same destination for a while. Yes, it's a hassle when you have really early starts. Hotels can be annoying, company apartments even more so. Colleagues can be pain. So can clients. But I do find the human interaction quite important. Yo...Jump to post
Although "unknown" is rather subjective, I'll list the ones that BA hasn't flown for many years. Nagoya and Fukuoka (via Osaka) were both served in the 90s. They also flew to Taipei, Manila, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland. Aha! I remember my flight to BNE back in 1997. It was my ...Jump to post

[...] We manage to get all the way from gate to gate in a safe, expeditious and comfortable manner, but we are judged on a few seconds of the flight. :lol: Because that's the few seconds that most passengers actually experience consciously.

Agreed. We deplaned a 744 once in LHR by the stairs.Jump to post
Denied or abandoned? Refused, dismissed or invalidated. "Abandoned because the applicant failed to respond or filed a late response to an Office action." That means the PTO denied the trademark, but gave the applicant a chance to alter their application or present argument why it should b...Jump to post
Most of you are probably not old enough to remember but in the 50's and 60's, perhaps later, AA named each of their planes Flagship Detroit, Newark etc. My records of the late 50's, listing the Convair tail numbers of my flights often showed the Flagship name. The 707's did but I don't remember whe...Jump to post

Denied or abandoned?
Flagship Airlines was founded and owned by AA! They bought a couple of commuter carriers and merged them under the name “Flagship Airlines” precisely because of the association of the term “Flagship” with the AA brand. Flagship flew its flights under the AA code feeding AA’s BNA hub. The carrier wa...Jump to post
Windrose has the worse livery of any airline I've ever seen It should know how to use the Eurowhite on its livery. Btw, its livery on the ATR seems "a bit" better, while the one on the Airbuses is truly a international-level disaster. But at least you won't forget it. Any publicity is goo...Jump to post
This year was a write-off. Did MUC-HAM and back in January. That's it. And that was work-related. All other booked journeys were corona'd. MUC-LED return in May.

I sit here on the other side of the pond wondering what the hell is going on. I cannot understand how anyone can trademark a word in common usage from way before either of these two companies existed. Seems to me just a way for corporate lawyers to earn money.

744 with BA, KL
748 with LH
And one earlier example with BA in 1997, but haven’t been able to find out which.
HAM, DXB, DND and EDI I've done; LCY should be possible, no? While HAM is located within the city its far from Downtown or from any places most people would head to. But if your Destination is close to the airport you can walk easily, or go by bike. Yeah, I lived not too far from it (northerly Lang...Jump to post

What bugs me more than all of that is when airlines simply don't enforce their rules. Set a limit (size or weight or number of items or all) for carry-ons and then enforce it. It annoys me to no end when I limit my own carry-on to fit the rules and then see what feels like the majority of passengers...Jump to post
Depends. I concur with others that I would like to earn and preserve points/miles where feasible. However, on short hops in particular, price matters, too. More so if a cost-sensitive client is paying. I flew MUC-HAM and back every other week over the winter, and to be honest, with departures just a...Jump to post
Many of my flights (66 of 350 segments over the past four years) have involved Alaska Airlines...many of those included SEA in the itinerary. SEA concourses are definitely a madhouse no doubt about that! But I've enjoyed all my flights thankfully with no issues to speak of. As an aviation enthusias...Jump to post
Over the last four years I've done little else but book flights to fly on specific planes. As others have stated...they won't go out of their way. I make it a point to go out of my way whenever possible. I don't fly for business except maybe domestically once a year. After all, what else are hobbie...Jump to post

Good on you. To an extent, I believe this site does help. At least for me, it was the case. I was terrified of flying for a long time, despite finding planes really interesting in principle. Happened on this site absolute ages ago, long before I even registered, and found it fascinating, particularl...Jump to post
I like all 3 planes. :( Sad, all of them are fading away Not wanting to go too far off-topic here, but the A300 was slightly before my time as an enthusiast. I really only saw the tail end of its time and don't even know if it was a 300 or a 310 I flew once or twice... But to go back to topic, the ...Jump to post
This is one aircraft I will truly miss. Has anyone been saddened with the A300 or 757 retiring? To be fair, I was indeed saddened by seeing the 757 go. Always loved that one. Where the 747 is majestic and regal and elegant, the 757 just always looked happy and friendly and kind of eager. But I get ...Jump to post
Much better than the rather disappointing gallery The Guardian ran... Thanks for posting!Jump to post
Happy birthday, A319! I think it's a very determined-looking aircraft. In a good way No idea when my first flight on one was, certainly before I started recording it. Certainly had many of them, including BA, EasyJet, GermanWings and Eurowings. TAP? Probably. Sabena? No, as they didn't have any, I'm...Jump to post
No idea when I saw my first one, but probably in LHR. However, a very fond memory was a project in Dubai in early 2019, when my office at the client's more or less overlooked DXB...

One of the two pilots on board sustained a non-life-threatening leg injury while exiting the aircraft, according to Stewart. The other pilot was not injured.
