Re: TUI Retiring the 757

757 was never huge in Europe correct? Negative...during the last eighties, nineties and the beginning of 2000's the 757 was one of the most popular, workhorse and utilized aircraft for tons of charter airlines from UK, Spain, Germany, Turkey, etc. Talking about my airport, Faro, Southern Portugal, ...

Re: Insane Cockpit Video of 737-300 Landing

Why didn't Bhutan Airlines or Druk Air fly the vaccine in on a regularly scheduled flight? AFAIK TRI-Mg Intra has a kind of contract with several entities such as RED CROSS and similar to do medevac, relief and hospital flights along all Asia...it also says that on their Wikipedia page.

Re: Insane Cockpit Video of 737-300 Landing

To be fair, Paro is very difficult landing. Only turboprops and Bae-146's were able to operate there for years. Even Druk Air only uses A319's now. Not correct...for some time other models are being used there such as boeing 737-700 and Airbus 320. For your info the other bhutanese airline besides ...
