Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - April 2020

I'd love to see photos of cargo loose loaded in an emptied passenger deck if that comes to pass.
Having been in plenty of cargo decks in my day the biggest pain in the neck (literally) was that I was too tall to stand up in there. I'd have loved the extra room...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - March 2020

Flew in from MEL on NZ124 this evening. Eerily quiet in the arrivals area. Will be a ghost town once the rest of the kiwis currently overseas trickle home.

Re: United suspends AKL

No, last time UA indicated that since acquiring the route from PA, they had never earned a profit on it. Yes but I assume (I left the industry some years ago) that when UA restarted last year they didn't assume the hundred odd staff members and all the infrastructure that they did in the late 80's ...

No need, new site splits the thread into 50 reply pages so is very manageable.

Re: Airliners.net Site Upgrade Announcement & Discussion

Apologies if an answer to this has already been posted before.
