Zoom with people you don't know well or have never met is very very stilted and awkward. It typically ends up with everyone too nervous to say anything in case they interrupt somebody else, and feels much like a work meeting.

I would think it's a security issue to publicly name which reg is planned for which flight in advance. Once the plane is set for boarding then it's public, but before that I doubt many airlines would want to to be public knowledge. Why is it a security issue to name in advance ? With FR24 and an ai...Jump to post

The opening up of Gatwick's second runway will be welcome though. That's a rounding error in the grand scheme of London airport capacity! You are right, but welcome never the less.
