Re: JAL pilot 8 times over the limit at LHR

Doc In Australia we do not use mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood as the standard. We use % concentration of alcohol in the blood. Can you can translate, or direct me to a site that will let me? Thanks Gemuser I stand to be corrected, but 0.05% BAC is approximately 50mg / 100ml, so this guy would hav...

With QR and now SQ bringing 359s to ADL, any hope that EK will upgauge their 77W to a 388?

Re: Emirates places order for 40 787-10's

Nice report, glad you enjoyed BACF. Now that mainline has gone BoB in economy, BACF is really the stand out operating if you're not in Club. Sadly they too are going BoB sometime this year, so it'll be the end of full service down the back. Due to not having a lounge in LCY, and the lack of seat bl...

Of course, being in Europe, it is a market saturated in LCCs, which makes flying cheap and easy but perhaps not too interesting for aviation enthusiasts or trip rep...

Having recently travelled with EK it was quite obvious we were diverting around Israel, through Saudi and then dashing up Egypt and onwards to Europe. The omission of Israel from the map too. Certainly interesting!

Re: If An Aircraft Is En Route to a Nation That Breaks Out In War

Not a war exactly, but interesting nonetheless. On the afternoon MH17 was shot down, EK had a flight en-route to KBP over Armenia (which is about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way to Ukraine), and they turned it around back to DXB. The route was suspended since, probably on cause of poor loads plus regional ins...

Why would QF want to anyway? I don't have the load numbers on me (I'd be curious to look at them), but having travelled on QF11/12 between LAX-JFK earlier this ear, it was more or less full each time. QF get more than enough traffic from PAX who are ticketed onwards to, or from, MEL, BNE or SYD on t...

Re: Qantas Intercontinental Routes Question

Obviously it doesn't compensate for 4x daily 744s into LHR, but keep in mind that QF's A380s can carry an extra ~130 pax over a 744. So between the two that fly in daily (QF metal), they would substantially make up for at least one extra 744, assuming full capacity. Plus eight daily EK A380s to LHR ...

RE: Why Russian Planes Use VP-B Or VQ-B Regs?

I don't know about all of them, but I believe with AZ (eg. their A330 fleet) are all leased in and the leasing companies register the aircraft in Ireland due to (apparently) the lowest associated taxes in the EU.
