Re: Are toxic cabin fumes an underestimated risk, or not?

Yeah. It's a big conspiracy. You're not from California, by chance, are you? Yet some of the big conspiracy guys are putting a little more effort than that in explaining their views: https://www.fzt.haw-hamburg.de/pers/Scholz/dglr/hh/text_2017_04_27_AircraftCabinAir.pdf Surely a waste of time, as t...

Are toxic cabin fumes an underestimated risk, or not?

Apparently it seems to be that only a low percentage of cabin fumes events finally get registered by the authorities, at least reading these avherald articles: https://www.avherald.com/h?article=4b6eb830/0006&opt=0 https://www.avherald.com/h?article=4c140b24&opt=0 Is this what is happening? ...

Re: 787 vs A350 range

Seeing the excellent provided graphs for the 787-9 and the A359 I fail to understand how the 787-10 is going to be a (substantially) more economical plane to operate than the second for the expected medium haul routes as it was previously reasoned

Re: AN-148 with 71 people gone missing

I'm hesitating to put the link, but the Daily Mail site has a lot of photos of the crash site (and also of some of the victims with names, beware). Lots of fragments on the ground, but because the abundant snow, at least to me look as "rained" as opossed to scattered travelling with high h...

Why EU air travel minimum space normative for animals and not for humans?

Sure, I've never purchased cheaper tickets than lately, but at least for intraeuropean flights, airlines have decided that everybody would prefer to save 10% of the cost of an economy fare (which I translate for the additional capacity of a 737/320 gained when going from rational pitch to 28-29”), a...
