A sad loss of an F1 legend. The long-term effects of his horrible crash in 1976 obviously took their toll. But I do think he was a little narcissistic with naming three airlines after himself.

Another positive for Brexit. This’ll be great for jobs and local communities. Online shopping is decimating physical retail. A great way to fight back. Not with my tax pounds, thank you very much. Feel free to donate some of your money to keep Poundland, KFC and Ladbrokes running on your high street.Jump to post

In the UK petrol stations now have diferent size nozzles on the pumps which fit the fuel tank, making it "almost" impossible to put the wrong type of fuel in the tank.

First, the 787 order still in negotiations is a pleasant surprise. It makes you wonder what affects it could have on the A350-900 and a330-900 discussions with Airbus.

BTW how much EU money will the UK MEPs get when elected? I expect that those of the Brexit party will refuse money from the EU (though I'll have some serious doubts they will).

Video of the 4 landings.
Then names of Caravelle, Concorde, Comet, Tristar (although officially L1011), etc all sounded much more distinctive and memorable than today's "777-9XXX A350-1000ULR 737MAX9 A321neoULRNX", and added a glamour vibe to air travel.

Qantas operate 787's which share a type rating with the 777. Pilot training would then be cheaper with the 777X. This is a pointless argument - QF also operates A330s and A380s, so pilot training costs will be a wash. Rolls Royce has fairly poor reliability as of late so I'd put my money on the GE ...Jump to post
Read "-69%" Yes, and it reads "Emirates announces -69% drop in net profits ". You should really read it again and again. If the profit for the previous year was 100 then last year they made a profit of 41. That's still a PROFIT . I hope you're not an accountant by trade!Jump to post
