Re: Emirates A380 encounters heavy turbulence

Exit sign fell right off... That’s what I noticed too. I *guessing* it didn’t fall off but instead something bumped into it and knocked it off. If it fell off that is some pretty violent turbulence and poor design. From the video it doesn't look like it's broken/smashed from being hit... I'd expect...

Re: Emirates 209 Tonight - Go Around ?

. Never flown a heavy but I can imagine it would be similar to most Jets, they're slippery and you can slow down or go down but not both at the same time. Actually you can, Normally on the A320/A321 we do Flaps 2 and speed 180-185-ish combined with speed brakes and gear down if you really need it.....

Re: Fate of Gulf Carriers during the Iran crisis?

There would still be a seated CA between you and the door. My wife and I flew on jumpseats on a LH 744 (FRA-MIA),...
