RE: BA Big Favour Request

Try booking with Ryanair or Easyjet. The fares will probably be a lot cheaper than £160. Or try the Spanish site I use quite often - they give really low fares in euros: http://www.terminala.com

RE: US Will Get The A340!

Would we see tghe A345s on any European routes? Would there be enough demand?

On another note, it'll be great to see US livery on an A340!  Smile

RE: Smocky A340 ;-) Picture

As it says in the pic info box, it's a wake vortex test for the A340 program; i.e. dumping stuff out the back to visualise the wake.

Either that, or the pilot loaded some diesel instead of avgas ( now I know why it's so slow in climb! Duh! )
