If you think Thailand is a cheap place to get lucky you are seriously mistaken. Prices have gone up significantly, service quality has declined and the exchange rate is the worst I have ever seen. I usually visit once or twice a year from Australia. The place where I am staying is dead, the bars are...Jump to post
Just made front page news in Australia https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-u ... ff3cbfef03Jump to post
Same could be said about most companies. Remember most passengers have no complaints, it is always the small minority who are vocal. No different to how one persons tweet about something is considered outrage, and how media use twitter as a news source. I remember reading that story that one person ...Jump to post
60 Minutes Australia will be airing a segment about 370 on Sunday evening. Wonder what new "facts" will be found...Jump to post
Actually just saw a new photo, why are people jumping from the front of the wing? I thought you evac from the black of the wings and the flaps act as a slide? Stupid to see people jumping off the leading edge.Jump to post
Just saw the pics in the Australian news today. Again! More idiots with bags. Cant believe that guy wearing that large backpack!Jump to post
I wonder if they will be better off ordering some -10's instead of more 9's?Jump to post
It is called a Short Field Performance package, however didn't think available on the 737 classic series, only available on the NG. Maybe take a look at the below link hope it helps

I saw the new Air NZ safety video just before. Thought it was great as usual.. however..

I can imagine it now. 747-400 rolling down the runway with flaps 0, pilots need Flaps 20 for takeoff and by the time the flaps are at 20 plane already at the end of the runway.
Not a good idea. What if the flaps fail to deply? Too many other things to think about during the takeoff run.
Sometimes when I eat at Ikea I quite like returning the tray on the little belt they have. Was at Costco a few months ago. Shared the table with a bunch of Chinese. Despite the bin and tray return being 5 steps they just got up and left their rubbish, half eaten food and everything for someone else ...Jump to post

Can't see anything what you refer to?
QR921 stopped in ADL the last couple of days, before that, MEL.Jump to post
Strange enough fuel for QR921. Suppose they really wanna keep the title of the worlds longest flight and not divert at all.
Malaysia Airlines diverted to MEL this afternoon to take on extra fuel. I also noticed yesterdays EK AKL-DXB went via Christchurch to top up!
NZ6 to LAX has literally just landed at Nadi for their fuel stop. NZ24 to YVR and NZ8 to SFO have not stopped.. so maybe these 2 flights have enough fuel, but not the LAX one, unless they will stop at HNL?Jump to post
I would love to see QF do MEL-SFO. It could work. Also I am not sure what the story is with QF95/96. I have been trying to work it out for a long time. Sometimes it operates, sometimes it doesn't. In regards to JQ... not sure if JQ from Australia to the Mainland could work. Wonder if there is much o...Jump to post
Great report of a little visited island.Jump to post
From what I recall, they had planned to retire them before MH370 went missing, and MH17 got shot down. With their horrid financial situation, they had no need for the 777 as they were cutting down on long haul routes, and the A330 was a better fit into the Australian and New Zealand market. They als...Jump to post
Great report. I happened to watch CNN cover this the other day

Great report. The Qantas 330's are fantastic nowadays. I flew them Syd-Bkk earlier this year and couldn't fault them.
Their business class is pretty sweet but could only get it from Mel-Syd as they dont upgrade discount economy on intl flights boo lol.
I recall PMDG said they are doing the 747 again because its Rob's favorite plane. You are right they are becoming more rare in real life, however the 747-8 is used by a few freight companies. I have the 777 for FSX however never bothered to rebuy it for P3D. I prolly will buy the 744 as Qantas still...Jump to post

Plane crashes at Barwon Heads on Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula, several people feared dead
Correct. No camera or phone on the tour. I did it back in November. They did say someone dropped a camera on a wing and it caused lots of damage. No idea if that is true.
Perhaps they don't want phones due to security (IE could remotely detonate a bomb?)
How did you find CNX?
I was there for about a week last year (during the water festival). It was so much fun!
I am planning on going back in November (lantern festival) for about a week.
Yeah, certainly not good. I was there in 2012.
