Re: AC to improve inclusivity and stop using "Ladies and Gentlemen"

I think it's a little odd, but getting upset over a company deciding to making such a small change is silly. Does it affect you that much that your experience is ruined if you don't hear "ladies and gentlemen"? If it makes some people feel more comfortable, then more power to them.

Re: Republic pilot punches female co-worker

Wow, this thread seems to have devolved fast. I'll just say a few things... - Physical violence of any sort is unacceptable and both deserved to be fired - Generally speaking, men are taller and stronger than women, so you better have a damn good reason (i.e. self-defense with reasonable threat of h...

Re: Non-Registered G-II crashes near Belize/Mexican Border...

I like to browse the aviation-safety database every once in a while and I swear at least three times a month there will be a "Unreg." crash in some Central American country. Given the circumstances, I get a bit of a chuckle out of it. Shame the birds are being put to such use though.

Re: KLM to replace one daily flight to BRU with Rail service

Who cares if they just did it for PR? It's a good thing. As much as people who are inclined to visit aviation forums would like to forget, air travel is terrible for the atmosphere. Taking steps towards optimizing short routes that don't really need a plane is a step forward.

In my area they drop a red gel which is also a fertilizer to promote new vegetative growth. It does not evaporate and I have seen them make direct hits on many houses and points of interest, in fact I still have some things stained red.

I am intrigued, where is this?

Re: maintenance mishap causes extensive damage to an Emirates Airbus A380

Ouchies! Had to be the 200th frame too :( Not the 200th frame, there are quite a number of skipped MSNs. MSN 18 shows "on order", MSN's 24, 37, 53, 60, 91, 97, 104, 118, 129, 185, 196, 212, 245, 246, 260, 261 (out of 263 as of today) have been skipped. So, MSN 200 is the 188th built. Can ...

Equality?!? Are male employees allowed to wear skirts if they wish?

Equality is not a one-way street.

Why not? It's the 21st century.

Re: looking for old registrations of flights

I'll add my own hail mary, see if I get lucky. I was five years old and it was my first aircraft so it would be pretty neat to know.
