Re: Any Avro RJ's, or 146's operating in North America?

I'm so glad I got to fly one of those magical planes before they were retired pretty much everywhere. Obviously after the cabin fumes issue was addressed. Google (BAE-146 fumes). I flew HBA - MEL when Ansett was flying them and it was pretty awful. Plane was good, ride and comfort good, cabin air BAD

New Build Frames vs Disposal

As I look at pics on a.net of the airframe to soda can conversion fields such as Marana and Victorvile, they appear to be filling up with frames quicker than the companies there can break them down. I know Kemble in the UK has a very small operation, but where else in the world is there anything nea...

Re: UA FAs to get TUMI rollaboards

I certainly don't mean to sound snarky as I'm sure it makes the FA's happy, but is this the best use of money - Tumi rollaboards? Shouldn't they put money into better customer service training or something that directly and positively impacts the customer experience? I doubt they are paying full pr...

Re: Saab 340 looses propeller in flight

It didn't land in a really remote area... This is just an uninformed guess based on the flight path, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was either in the water or in Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. Not remote per se, but dense forest nonetheless. Read the ABC report again and note the words "o...

"Latest News" on home page outdated.

Interesting that nothing even remotely aviation related has appeared in the "Latest News" for 14 days. Is this part of the current US Administration's plans to quash news reporting? :)

RE: When Will QF16 Move To Tom Bradley Internation

TBIT is very airy and spacious but be prepared to queue for the lift if you're going to the <acronym title="Cathay Pacific (China-Hong Kong)">CX</acronym>/BA/QF lounge. One lift with a maximum of 14 pax! We flew QF12 and had to queue for the lift for quite a while. The oneworld lounge is nice but wi...

RE: Biman Website Gets A Professional Look

Fully realizing the English is a second language in Bangladesh but I would have thought that a website catering for an international clientele should at least use a spell checker at the very minimum. A good clean and functional website otherwise. <center><table align="center" border="0" width="650" ...
