Airbus does it too; no major carrier has 316 seats on an A359; yet that is the number Airbus uses to figure out seat-mile fuel consumption.


There is a little airline in Asia called Thai that has 321 seats in their A350-900

There's also Lufthansa with 319.

Re: Re-inaugural SQ38 (SIN-LAX nonstop) is airborne and underway

Ouch, not what you want on a inaugural flight. Looks like the flight finally departed again at 5AM. How would such a late departure affect crew hours? For such a long flight, I’d guess they don’t have a lot of leeway before timing out. It's not a U.S. carrier. I don't think I have ever heard of suc...

Dealing with sick passengers, puke, food trays, rubbish, galleys, and toilets is part of the cabin crews job. The less glamours parts, but it is their role.

Bullshit. While on sick leave, you can do anything that doesn't impede your recovery. A job interview certainly does not.

The article only says which airline is top, and which are in the top 20 in alphabetical order. We don't know where LH stands.

Brexit negotiations have not even started yet, and after they've started, the process will take two years. So it won't have any impact now.
