Greetings Folks, boy that is one very aggressive looking aircraft!
All the best to Boeing and their supply partners in getting this aircraft in the air.
Despite the naysayers this aircraft will eventually rule the skies just like the 747.
well tests my bit , cheers 325i.
Greetings Folks, there is an article in the June issue of Airliner World that gives an overview of the demise of WOW and that Mogensen is attempting to have another go!
Dear Marcelth, do not apologise for being European ,there will come a time in your life when you are bored with land based tours. Cruising is SOOOO relaxing combined with educational trips (land based) . If you have the means and are adventurous enough sample or checkout Regent Cruises. Most travel ...Jump to post
Greetings Folks, Have just scrolled through the 2018 threads and have picked up on the 2019.boy am I feeling somewhat nostalgic! So much so that my sailing companion ( the nearest and dearest) and I have decided to treat ourselves to another cruise. No surprise that it will be on another Regent crui...Jump to post
I would say it was out of respect to the souls onboard. Well done Boeing. 325iJump to post
Greetings Folks, RyaairGuru mentioned that QF in 2021 will be the longest running airline.
Not being pedantic but when AJ had a set to with the unions some time ago, they ceased flying for a short period.
Would this not throw a spanner in the works to this claim .just asking
Thank you Waterbomber2 for your response.It would appear to me that you had a one off experience or that air travel does not agree with you.
Take a deep breath and have another go in flying with one of Europes better airlines. Alternatively upgrade to J class . Cheers ,325i.
Greetings Folks and Waterbomber2,my friend you must have had a bad day to make a comment that KL's service etc is poor. late last year had 2 wonderful flights with them, from check in to deplaning the entire staff that were involved performed with an exemplary attitude.The aircraft were clean and th...Jump to post
Dear Boeingphan,I cannot accept that you were subjected to sounds as reproduced on your video. I have had over 20 flights on QF's A380's(J class) and have never experienced what you were subjected to. If you want to experience a noisey flight by comparison try a B777.300ER, seat 7K on EK! Cheers 325...Jump to post
In my opinion I believe that the Management at ANA should be congratulated for looking beyond their corporate image particularly as this aircraft has a level of prestige attached to it.
It will be interesting to observe what the. Ext two aircraft come up with!
Greetings Folks,I have a question, logic says,to me, there would have been a representative from CX on site during this process am I right in assuming this was the case? Assuming my "logic" is correct then all I can say is that person was extremely deficient in the English language! Altern...Jump to post
Thank you Stitch for your response. It could well be likely that your comment is the basis for what has evolved.
I have a question regarding QF's ."alleged deposits" on the balance of the 380 order, does anyone know that they exist?
Regards ,325 I.
Greetings Folks, I quite like the new livery, however the management could have given consideration to placing their logo on the engine nacelles. It would have IMO relieved the somewhat stark and clinical white fuselage. Nonelteles it is a welcome change. Now to upset some , when are SQ going to ent...Jump to post
Greetings Folks, for what is worth here is my contribution.
Shorts Sandringham (flying boat)
Vickers Viscount 700
Douglass DC 4
Boeing 707 & SP
Douglass DC 10.30
And the best of them all The L1011.500 (if it can be considered" Rare")
Greetings Folks, This years F1 is developing into competition between teammates. The most obvious is between the Red Bull drivers while Force India are not too far behind. Young Daniel ,the master of the "overtake" ( reference to the weekends race at Hungering ) is very entertaining as dis...Jump to post
Greetings Folks, recalling a flight last year LOndon to Barcelona I was served a "salad and cheese plate" for lunch! I had a better snack in their lounge . BA'S cabin offerings and service even accross the pond is nothing to write home about. I have posted elsewhere that my flights from Li...Jump to post
Greetings Folks, as Donald Sutherland commented in Kelly's Heroes, " knock off those negative vibes Moriarty!"
Let's look on the bright side of life.That is a line from Monty Python.
Cheers , 325 i
Greetings Folks, have just scrolled through this thread and have come to the conclusion that the more asthetically blessed contributors in assessing aircraft design are in agreement that the L1011 and B757 are the winners. I suspect my opinion will be challenged by "outraged" contributors ...Jump to post
Hi Folks, maybe I am being somewhat naive but whatever happened to that old dictum "the customer is comes first".
Today's self entitlement ,by some, appears to blow that into the ether!
Cheers and have a good day. 325i.
Hi Folks, guess what? Yes back on board with Regent Seven Seas(Again the Voyager) from Rome to Monte Carlo. Am looking forward to be indulged upon ,again. This trip is a rather special one,taking my two adult daughters as a special treat for being such good women (biased!) They are leaving their fam...Jump to post
Greetings Folks, good one Austrian,suggested a change on another thread some time ago.
Cannot believe they took any notice but the result is acceptable.
Now to be rebuked again by some fellow a Netter's , SQ need to join the 21st Centuary!
Hi Folks,would appreciate some advice from the more Informed A Netter's CI 051 flew over my residence this morning on approach to 16 R and I was stunned by the noise generated on its approach. I regularly get ANZ's 777's and 787's in addition to LATAM's 787's and the "noise" is nowhere as ...Jump to post
Hi Folks, when on your next flight look around and observe the number of fellow travellers that watch the safety instruction demonstration.From my experience on numerous flights there appears to be little interest in the "demo" unless the flight attendant has a good pair of legs etc! Cheer...Jump to post
Hi Folks, in my opinion AI126 has hit the nail on its head.
The Lobbyists will be working "flat out"' on both sides of the table.
Hi Folks, quite a disparate collection of opinions. Personally I like the new rendition ,moving with times. Now on this note would the boards of Aer Lingus, Austrian and Singapore sit down and "move with the times". I realise that the above suggestion will be off thread but worthy of comme...Jump to post
Hi Folks, an interesting question. For what is worth,having visited JAX several times in the last 5 years ( relatives) the best thing the owners could do is to upgrade the terminal. It looks very "tired" and a makeover would not go astray! As an aside I have not noticed the environment tha...Jump to post
Hi bzcat, thanks for your input. Sorry about being "Sydneycentric" however basically my comment about Dallas being "civil" relates to Immigration/Customs procedures. Have never experienced the treatment one receives in Dallas in Los Angeles.LAX is the pits. Maybe one day you may ...Jump to post
Hi folks, there is an alternative to the Los Angeles NewYork route and in my opinion far better.
Sydney to New York via Dallas.
Have done this trip 4 times and in spite of some delays due to New Yorks weather it is quite civil compared to Los Angeles.
Hi folks, just came across this thread and for what it is worth I tender my comments on two recent cruises. 2016/2017. The Cruise Line was Regent Seven Seas, the liner was the Seven Seas Voyager,on both occasions. 2016 cruise was from Stockholm to Copenhagen and points in between (St.Petersburg was ...Jump to post
Hey qf789 your commentary is quite heavy,do you have shares in VA or do you have an axe to grind? If JB was as you say, he would have most certainly been given a golden handshake some time ago. He must have some credibility as he still in the "chair",to quote an expression. Cheers anyway 3...Jump to post
