TWA772LR wrote:What aircraft do AF and KL operate to CPT?
Cape Town is a highly seasonal destination. OS also doesn't fly daily during the summer. If I am not wrong, even LX/WK only serves Cape Town twice a week in the summer. Plus AF can funnel traffic via KL and AMS due to their daily flights. LH and BA are option as well as those two airlines serve CPT ...Jump to post
The man gets drunk and the judge decides to ruin his life because of it? You guys agree with this? Disgusting. Well yes. He caused an aircraft to land early inconveniencing passengers and costing the airlines thousands of dollars. No my issue he can't hold his liquor. He has no one, but himself to ...Jump to post

Don’t forget the cabin maybe empty but the cargo is full. That is where the money is. They import everything from around the world. I was at JFK one evening and I could not believe the amount of cargo being place on a EK A380. A common misconception that cargo is full / makes all the money. Simply ...Jump to post
I suspect some will go to OS and their 777s and 767s are getting older. Maybe some will go to LX. But I also strongly believe they will stay with LH mainline. It is the direct replacement for the A340-300 which has served LH well. So they will likely send it to A340-300 destinations like CPT/SJO etc.Jump to post
That said, the food on EK could use some overhaul. Grtting worse and worse.
I have boarded a 747-400 on remote in CPT. I boarded a 777/737 in DXB many times. I disembarked an A340-300 in CPT. I boarded a 777 in IST. An A319 in FRA. So remote boarding and disembarking is common. Take DXB for example. Gate space is limited. Most of EK's operation is remote. FZ pretty much is ...Jump to post
The silliest bus boarding I've done was in Tirana (TIA), the plane was parked around 40 metres from the gate, but they used a bus for that distance. Terminal 2 in DXB is that same. You can be parked right in front of the terminal and yet still need to take the bus. I walked on the ramp many times. ...Jump to post
My theory is that the A/C was scheduled LCY-DUS-LCY-EDI and the flight dispatcher simply filed the flight plan for the LCY-EDI leg. So the flight crew fed the FMS with the issued flight plan and the A/C did its thing. At no stage was safety was compromised. No one should be losing their job over thi...Jump to post
I used to work as a load controller for a major European airline. I can't respond to all comments here, but I try to clarify a few things. Our weight and balance system was linked to both flight dispatch and check-in. Which means we got the actual baggage weight into our system. This in turn then cr...Jump to post
Well, here is your answer to the problem. I hope it works out.

All Emirates has to do is improve the working conditions of the pilots and they'll come naturally. I recently heard some pilots are leaving Emirates to work for Ryanair, that says a lot. Completely agree. I was staff traveling on EK IAH-DXB and has 2 crew members tell me to stay in the US. Neither ...Jump to post
I think EK could even drop pay if they just improved working conditions. Most people can't make it work because they simply can't spend 20-22 nights a month away from family. Hard to say. Not in the aviation industry but have heard from others about how Dubai can be rough for families. It’s a fun p...Jump to post
You would only find it creepy if you are a creep yourself. I think it quite a nice message. I had amazing conversations on planes. I mean these days everyone just stares into their phone and IFE. I miss the times were planes were full of chatter and laughter.Jump to post
It's funny isn't it. It's always 'because I'm black/muslim/jew/gay/free-spirited asexual demiboy/fat'.

Hi everyone, I was in ZAG for two days and on my way back to the airport I spotted an ATR-42 belonging to WC parked with no props standing at OU Technical division. Anyone got an idea what will happen with this aircraft or why it ended up in ZAG? I see the A/C was originally delivered brand new to O...Jump to post
People simply have poor personal hygiene. I come across people with bleeding gums, smelly armpits and stinking breath everyday. I unfortunately work with those people all day. Sometimes we get chocked up in the office because the smell is so bad.Jump to post

I think Russia's a great place to visit. Although airport immigration at ROV (Rostov-on-Don) took me into secondary (they REALLY didn't know why I wanted to visit their city), I never encountered any issues wandering throughout Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, or Rostov. In fact, Moscow is one of my ...Jump to post

RJ and TK carry pax with final destination TLV out of DXB. Bags tagged through all the way.
EK would definitely make a success out DXB-TLV, but this won't happen soon.
