Re: Spanish Aviation Thread - 2021

I just can't see how Iberia and Air Europa integrating into one will be good for the consumer!? Many smaller airports in Spain are operated by both these two airlines, in the same route. Making it just the one company will surely decrease competition and increasing prices!?

Re: VietJet's A321 skids off runway in SGN

What's Airbus' SOP for a runway overrun/incident like this? Looks like the evacuation slides have not been deployed, but the flaps and spoilers are still extended? I know for the B737, the flaps are fully extended to assist pax egress from the overwing emergency exits (should an emergency evacuatio...

Re: Virgin Atlantic needs government support?

Lots of hypocrites here. IM sure if each one of us were in the same shoes as Branson, we would have done exactly the same. All this "Doesn't pay his taxes" - we would have done the same - its legal, why wouldn't we? HOWEVER then main point is, its a British company, VIRGIN ATLANTIC want th...

Re: VS postpones GRU launch to October

VS have confirmed that they will get rid of their 600's now. They don't need them as they have enough aircraft to cope with their existing routes. The 747's are the only guzzling ones left. I wonder if they will go soon too!?

Iranian aircraft misses runway...

This year hasn't started that amazingly well for airlines. I guess it could always be worse. However how on earth did this pilot over run the runway. Weather looks fine!?

Re: Ukranian plane on fire in Sharm El Sheikh

Great job by the ground crew! Why weren't the slides popped? Engines might have still be running so you wouldn't evacuate. The Captain could have informed the crew to "Standby" via PA. The cabin crew would have then known that a potential evacuation might take place and are then waiting f...

Re: BBC Panorama: Boeing's Killer Planes

If this was a Russian aircraft everyone would be thinking the same - dangerous aircraft, should never have flown. I personally won't be flying on it until its been safely flying for at least a year or two. These two crashes should never have happened. This aircraft should have never been allowed to ...
