Re: 787 Trent Engine replace on Norwegian

Totally unrelated question. But how do you rank the 787 versus other commercial aircraft you have flown? I ask this because I have heard 757 and 747 pilots talk about how much they love flying those birds. Is there a similar feeling among 787 pilots or is it a difficult or unpleasant plane to fly. ...

Re: 787 Trent Engine replace on Norwegian

Just trying to ease your mind a little bit so I created this image. It's not 100% accurate, but almost. I don't know if you're flying from Oslo, but if you do - this is likely close to the route you'll be flying. The airports noted in the image are all alternative airports in case of an emergency. ...
