Re: The correct dog breed

It doesn't matter. All are inferior to cats. No one asked you about your cat. Cats are inferior and irrelivent in modern society given modern rodent killing methods. All my dogs see when he sees a cat is a soon to be dead cat. What an asshole answer. What an asshole person you are answering like th...

Re: The correct dog breed

Agree on Boxer. I'm not a dog person - never had one as a life companion, only multiple cats - but every time I met one and btw I have the owner's permission, I really like to play with them. Seems like they can understand your feelings. I think the death of a dog is one of the things that can hurt ...

Re: Two Crew in Cockpit Rule Ending

Personally although I find the two person rule tedious when it comes to toilet breaks and the like, I must admit I feel safe and secure knowing that should a colleague go a little funny, there's a crew member who can reach and unlock the door to let me in. Seems to me you have it backwards. A two-p...

Re: 737-10MAX serves a different role to the A321NEO?

It's also a type rating commonality decision.
If you have a fleet of A320Family you can switch crews from A318 to A321 with little to none suplementary training
Same for 737NGs - a little training will be requested for MAXs I suppose

Re: Aeroméxico E190 Accident in Durango July 31

Catastrophic engine failure, which caused the plane to veer on one side between V1 and VR or during rotation?
This may have caused the "aborted" take off, I bet no CPT / FO will abort a take off after VR.
Maybe a thrust reverser malfunction caused its deployment?
