737 was probably a West Atlantic cargo aircraft.
I called it out and got a personal message warning as a result from a forum admin.
I'm glad someone else agrees.
Sadly I'm now finished with the forum as it's become a kindergarten policed by jumped up little Hitlers.
Final warning coming in 3, 2, 1...
Brussels-Larnaca is a PSO service. That is the reason Ryanair serves it and it is their only route out of LCA, instead of PFO. Also flights from Strasbourg to Amsterdam (AF), Madrid (YW) and Prague (OK) are PSO; routes also related to Strasbourg as an European capital. Why is that a PSO route? For ...Jump to post
Hello, This was a topic that always interested me. Never knew why the md80 climbed so well and the other planes not so much. I was assuming the plane may be light or the small, tube like airframe was efficient for climbing. I would like a explanation for this though, as I think many people would be...Jump to post
Barney, give it a rest will you? This whole flight was a non-standard operating procedure that was planned out in advance. Sure it was risky, but it WAS planned. would such a flight be planned or allowed today, unlikely. But this was the 1980s. At the same time we still allowed people to smoke insid...Jump to post
Too many people criticizing the pilot's here but without the required knowledge. (E.g. they probably have never landed an IL-62 at all, let alone on a short grass strip) I'm not a pilot so wont pass comment on that. But I will say that the engines were never going to run again so FOD wasn't a consid...Jump to post

There are so many aspects here that will influence Airbus and indeed any multinational. At its simplest and most basic it'll mean that the company will need to employ additional resources to manage the additional paperwork required for the cross border workers. Today workers can frequently be reassi...Jump to post
You’re being a bit silly here Teddy, this is all on the white trash unemployable people from middle England who have screwed the UK for everyone else.

Surely a topic better suited for Polls and Preferences than here?

I can testify to that. My flight was on time this morning. Just a pity that a lot of us on it didn't have the pleasure of our bags making the flight with us. Not sure if it's just coincidence or if there are still non standard operations behind the scenes. Will be interesting to see how long until t...Jump to post

I find it simply amazing that such a disturbance can last so long. I'd have thought an airport the size of Hamburg would have some sort of backup supply.
Also, he says A-Three-Three-Zero or A-three-hundred-and thirty and the likes of that, and it makes it difficult for me to watch. I don't know why, but that bugs the hell out of me too.

The whole things is a Ryanair bashing, the Airport NIMBYs do not want low cost carriers at FRA. You've got the nail on the head!

There's a video on YouTube showing people sitting on them. It looks terrible.

What an amazing amount of politically motivated comments in this thread. And on both sides of the argument.

The US airlines were already moving away from the B747...Jump to post

No surprise, not operating the MoM would be a huge disadvantage for any airline in the region. It's a bit early to assert that as long as the MoM is just a paper plane.

The fact that so many people on a site ostensibly peopled by adults go apoplectic about airline liveries as genuinely bizarre, IMO. Couldn't agree more!
