You always land on 05 because the approach is over the sea and never on 23 over the city because of the threat of hostile fire, but that can often mean a tailwind. Heavy landing 727 cockpit video by Sam Chui that went viral recently is usually the result but alas things went badly for this Fokker F...Jump to post
Pretty sure 767s cannot dump fuel, but they can land at takeoff weight. They could have burned off fuel to avoid overweight landing inspections, but only they know. As usual here, plenty of erroneous info. Most B767-300ER can dump fuel. That said, an overweight landing inspection takes two mechanic...Jump to post
With the introduction of the travel ban from Manchester and Salford to Scotland, are flights from Manchester airport still permitted? I can’t find any information on whether the ban is only for people who live in Manchester or Salford or if it applies to anyone travelling from Manchester airport, re...Jump to post
Anyone who is “terrified” by having to queue at LHR shouldn’t be travelling in the first place.Jump to post
Yes you may enquire. Did I say my trip was imminent? No, I did not so perhaps you are rather silly for jumping to conclusions. I want to fly on the Iberia A350 from MAD to LHR. The trip I’m planning is a day trip to facilitate this. My enquiry is to help me with my trip planning, when it is safe an...Jump to post
Might we enquire why you're flying from London to Madrid and returning straight back to London, without even wishing to enter Spanish territory, when there's a pandemic raging, and Govts all round the world are discouraging travel ? Yes you may enquire. Did I say my trip was imminent? No, I did not...Jump to post
I always thought B6 would give this route a shot once pre-clearance was installed at MAN I don’t think there’ll ever be pre-clearance in the U.K for a number of reasons, but if there was I’d imagine MAN would come in as a second or even third choice. MAN will be top of the list when and if it agree...Jump to post
So they want to trade 91 10-20 year-old aircraft for 100 brand new ones? If true, another example of Delta's arrogance. Have you never traded in an old car for a new one? You don’t get a new one for free, you get the value of the old one knocked off the price of the new one. Delta would just be doi...Jump to post

I'm not sold. MAN sounds a lot better on paper than it does in reality. There's a long list of failed endeavors at MAN. There's a reason BA ceded that market to Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic. EI may have a shot with the right sized aircraft, but it's unlikely to be the goldmine a.net hopes it wil...Jump to post
Counting the passengers would have made no difference here. The issue was where they were sitting, not how many there were. You have to question why the cabin crew did not notice something was amiss when they saw how many rows towards the rear of the aircraft were unoccupied. Wizz Air FAs earn betw...Jump to post
What are the regulatory requirements for crew verification of W&B in Europe? I had been under the impression that they were pretty stringent based on things like the strident announcement AF made or makes pre-takeoff telling folks to stay in their seats so they can be counted. Counting the pass...Jump to post
Has there been any further news about BA flight 113, which earlier today had to dump fuel and return to Heathrow shortly after takeoff? Just a note on the terminology. Dumping fuel and returning to the airport does not imply an emergency landing. All it means is that they couldn't continue the flig...Jump to post
They couldn't do Vueling UK as the brand has such an awful reputation while Level has zero recognition. They'd have a tough time competing directly against easyJet which already flies every route under the sun from LGW and has excellent brand recognition. It would be better to create a subsidiary o...Jump to post
Following the collapse of Flybe, Eastern Airways is now operating Manchester to Southampton in its own right and online booking is open, though strangely they don’t offer online check-in and appear not to offer advance seat selection. Interestingly, the aircraft type for Manchester to Southampton is...Jump to post
My question is this...will such a short trip be seen as a bit odd or do lots of enthusiasts do this kind of thing? The general public might consider short trips a bit odd, but many aviation enthusiasts see it differently. Two weeks ago I travelled for fun from Amsterdam to Toronto. Stayed two night...Jump to post
I like flying just for the fun of it. I’ve booked a trip with Vueling MAN/BCN/MAN in April so I can fly on one of their A320s outbound and A321s inbound. The trip gives me about three hours at BCN which I plan to spend just watching the planes arrive and depart. My question is this...will such a sho...Jump to post
I do lots of trips just for fun, with no real need to fly...it’s just a great hobby. Last weekend I flew MAN-DUS-LHR-EDI-MAN over two days.

Hi, I’m flying this summer from Tokyo to PEK on JAL and then catching an Air China flight to San Francisco.

It’s been some time now since Juneyao announced their new service from MAN but flights are still not for sale. Anyone know when they’ll be bookable?Jump to post
VS shall be delighted to get their hands on any commercially viable LHR slots which might become available. If they are good slots, I could even see DELTA writing the cheque to fund the purchase.

The people on a.net probably are not the people flying long haul to China with Juneyao or Hainan... all people here care about is short fifth freedom for a modest price to collect another airline... a bit of dirt won'tvworry them in the slightest Agreed.

It looks like the new Aer Lingus A321NEO LR has a couple of blank panels instead of windows towards the rear of the aircraft. Does anyone know which row numbers do not have windows? Just Row 25 with no window. It is due to the blocked (not used) emergency exit door location. Thanks, I have a flight...Jump to post
I too have thought their expansion seems rapid, but they’ve been around for a long time and seem to know what they’re doing. Their fares are outrageously high on many routes, but people must be paying them! I hope they take over the MAN/GLA route that apparently is about to be axed by Flybe.Jump to post

I was planning to use the excellent Explore Norway ticket from Wideroe in Summer 2020 but on their website it says it won't be available in 2020. Does anyone know why it's been withdrawn?

It has a selection of rooms with limited views. Can I suggest you look at the Bloc Hotel instead, which offers some outstanding views over LGW. I believe it's possible to specifically reserve these rooms. Thanks for your response. The Bloc looks interesting but I think it’s mega-expensive for tiny ...Jump to post
