Wait, didn't Virgin Atlantic use to fly to Bolivia? I specifically remember seing this. In a James Bond movie I think. You're thinking of Quantum of Solace.

I've played many of the Grand Theft Auto games and performed near enough all the possible horrific actions in game.

Still only 10% though, probably easier just to add frequency with a slightly smaller aircraft with better runway performance. Or just limit payload/fuel. So limit range (no more Atlanta) or short sell your capacity. You guys have this locked down. You should work in revenue management! Advocating t...Jump to post

Why though? The point was to try and keep a common type rating with the existing 737. So a 757MAX would be rather pointless, may as well do a clean sheet.

Well, she seems lovely. If that's how she treats him in public, I dread to think about what the poor fella has to endure at home.
Good on the FA to try and remove him from his seat for his own safety.
I wonder if it extends to flight crew? Imagine the feeling of walking to your gate at LAX, passing all the VS, BA, LH crews in their smart uniforms while wearing your Goofy Ears.Jump to post

I suppose it was only a matter of time before the Oompa Loompa figured out how to use the TV remote.

Same idea as going to the top of the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State Building, good view of an amazing city. But over here our landmarks are mainly older and not quite as tall as NYC, the surrounding buildings aren't quite as tall either, so we can get away with the wheel. Although we do have The...Jump to post

If I recall correctly, Manston was a designated abort field for the space shuttle, so the runway certainly is large enough for near enough anything. My only experience of Manston was about 10ish years ago, I had a return flight there from MAN on a Flybe Q400. Horrendously basic airport and seemed co...Jump to post
How experimental is your taste? Could it be found on Amazon music?

What did you have to compare it with, though? Good point. To be honest I have only owned Samsung branded android phones, but I'm more than happy with them.

I went from iPhone to Windows Phone to Android on Samsung. Samsung is the clear winner for me by a country mile. I think Airstud needs to embrace the change.

My biggest problem is finding the right size. 11 or 11 1/2 in Converse, 12 in Puma, Nike, UnderArmor, and Adidas and anywhere up to 13 in the "off" brands.

With no phone battery to call out, I wonder how much trouble you'd get in to flip on the aircraft battery, engage the APU and turn on every possible exterior light? Strobes and landing lights on while parked at a stand would surely garner attention!Jump to post
I hope developers are already planning updated versions of their aircraft so I don't have to fly an Orbit 737 for too long! It'll be interesting to see what default jet aircraft are included.

Depends on what you define as the "80s". I was born in '89 and have more in common with random 16 year olds than I do with someone born in say, '86.

Considering how they are using an existing plane instead of making a new one, I think this could work. That being said, I doubt a passenger 160 will be as efficient as a new plane.

They may have drifted off centre during the go around manoeuvre, who knows. If the visibility was so poor, surely they were much more likely to be on centre during the approach as they would be following the ILS.
