Are you interested in collective events like soccer games? I'm not and I hated my 10 months conscription. People gave their gun female names. I just shook my head.

How can a crew work on as a team in a situation like that? It's unsafe and unprofessional. The captain's judgement is needed at any moment. That position, which is also Aaron's, I understand.

Classic example of victim shaming. If she made dirty jokes it’s okay for the man to expose himself. I say it may have been sexual harassment or a prank.

I think Airbus has been remarkably effective at holding airlines to the letter of the law and getting them to accept delivery on aircraft they'd much rather defer, which presumably is what helps give them the confidence to boost production to such high levels. Maybe a few deliveries will be refused...Jump to post

Would this be a thick wing for slow speed again? I guess if Airbus intends to stretch the fuselage further all fuel in the wing would be good.

How can that be? CO2 emissions are a direct link to the quantity of fuel burned; so, if the fuel consumption goes down by 70%, the CO2 rejected goes down by 70%,
