Re: KLM slap on the wrist for discrimination

I think there's some confusion in this thread based on the wording in the OP, the wife of the MP in question is being discussed, not the Jewish man's wife.

But maybe I'm the one reading it wrong.

There would be a rope to allow the occupants to guide themselves down, apparently, and, I ...

Re: An-124 escape slide?

Edit: I just relooked at the picture, sorry this is the stairway to the main fwd flight deck. I mistook the view for the aft stairs. Same principle as I described below. I have climbed up into the flight deck for a visit. It is the primary access ladder to the flightdeck. But isn't the yellow/orang...

An-124 escape slide?

I was able to photograph RA-82042 at VIE with the nose up recently, and noticed workers removing some sort of rectangular structure before any unloading happened, seemingly a chute or escape. https://i.imgur.com/75FaUmR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vJIMFhD.jpg I have to assume it ends in this panel left ...

Re: Irish 5/20: April dragged, but May flies ...

Regarding the Cityjet news, aside from 700 job cuts, the Avro's retirement is also mentioned. Not surprising, but where does that leave the DUB-LCY route? I guess it already was an IAG monopoly, but will it only be BA Cityflyer then? Was scheduled to fly on one a week ago but now very sad that my fi...

Re: Amazing trips you’ve had to cancel

In 2016 I was supposed to fly JFK-AMS-LUX-ZRH-VIE, with KL 744, KL F70, LX Avro RJ100 and Helvetic E190. This was effectively my birthday gift. I made the first leg, but fell asleep waiting for my flight to LUX, being a stupid overambitious teenager flying alone for the first time (not much has chan...
