Anybody Have Any My Travel 767 Cabin Shots?

In June I will be traveling From Glasgow - Calgary with My Travel on a 767. I am curious to see the interior of these aircraft, as UK Charter airlines are notorious for cramming in as many seats as possible. Could anyone offer a link to such images or indeed upload any you may have. If not has anyon...

Yes, mindscape I was certainly thinking of varying it on outward and return legs. There will be four of us traveling. Someone elsewhere has advised me to opt for the 744/340 option as a result, because they both have 4 seats in the middle, whereas the 777 layout is 3-3-3. A combination of 744 and 34...

AF CDG - JFK, Which Aircraft To Take?

I am currently planning a trip to New York, from Manchester, UK (July to August). I have found cheap flights with Air France connecting in Paris. There is plenty of choice and I was wondering which aircraft is likely to be the most comfortable. My choices are a combination of 772, 744 and A340. I ha...

Could somebody explain to me what makes the 747-350, different from the 747-300. In other words what features does the 350 have that are common with the 400 series. Thanks for any explanations.

I've had fs2002, my first flight sim for some time now. I have pretty much mastered 'normal' landings. However when it comes to a crosswind I am really struggling. Whenever I attempt a crosswind landing I just find myself drifting with the wind and getting progressively further from the centre line....

RE: Another Minor, Yet Highly Irratating FS2K2 Pronlem

I think there should be something added to the ATC for when emergencies occur. For instance if you have set an engine to fail and you need somewhere to land as soon as possible. Probably another performance related thing. Just an idea.

MAN - In Fs2002

This is almost the same as the problem with landing on parallel runways. However at Manchester Intl (MAN / EGCC) the new runway (06R/24L) has no taxi ways connected to it, even though there is an ILS for the runway. Does anyone know why none have been created and why this has been done?

Ok, so nobody seems to have any. Does anyone know of a website(s) that will give me info on the runways like airnav.com does, as this does not cover european airports. Maybe even a map of the layout of the runways and taxi ways.
Thanks
