ORF - DCA
LGA - ORF (the flight up to LGA was on a Saab 340)

Re: TCX A321 at LHR today - reason ?

No fleet issues, just leased due to industrial action by the mixed fleet cabin crew. Here's a post from The BA Source: Thomas Cook Airlines A321 G-TCDN operated the following British Airways flights today: BA1306/BA1307 London Heathrow – Aberdeen BA1312/BA1313 London Heathrow – Aberdeen. The lease w...

Re: BA first class pyjamas

I had the pleasure of travelling back from Mumbai in First Class a few months ago - I was asked if I wanted a 'sleeper suit' and then was handed my pj's. I've kept mine and use them at home as they are quite comfy and cosy!

Re: Why was EY21 diverted to IST?

According to the EY source, it does appear to have been for medical reasons.

RE: Part 1:Qatar Airways - Thailand And India

Great Trip report and loved the pics at the end of it from your trip. I flew Qatar a couple of weeks ago on a trip to the Philippines and like yourself, left on the <acronym title="Qatar Airways">QR</acronym> 16. Now I'm 6'4 and I did survive the flight but it was more cramped than what I've been us...

RE: Departing Hamburg: We Can Bring Out The Good Stuff

Very enjoyable series of trip reports - I'm looking forward to going to read the final part. I flew on this aircraft back in March from the Seychelles (SEZ) to Dubai, however I was in steerage! It was still a great flight though.  <img src="http://cdn-www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/graphics/...

RE: Comparing The Competition Again: VS/BA LHR-ABZ-LHR

Glad to hear you had a nice trip up to my home. There are plenty of things to do and see here - you just have to look around and maybe venture outside the city. Looking forward to your report on the <acronym title="Malaysia Airlines">MH</acronym> 380. I was on that back in September for the first ti...

RE: Bulgaria Bourgas AirVIA BulgariaAir

Hello Markus, Thanks for a great post which has made me write this comment, my first ever post on this site despite being a member for a number of years! This trip brought back a lot of memories of my first visit to Bulgaria back in 1993 flying into Bourgas on a Balkan Bulgarian Tu-154 from Gatwick....
