RE: What Is Your Favourite Airport

I think London Gatwick is the best in Europe, for the shear volume of traffic using one runway, the facilities there and it´s a very exciting airport.

RE: Unrealistic Plane Movies

I remember in passenger 57, when they threw the hostage out of the plane you could see the nice blue mattress he fell onto relected on the nice polished underbelly of the Tristar. Not so much an unrealistic movie but it made me laugh. I also heard something about you cannot open the door of a pressu...

Runway Length For 747-400

How long does it need to be for a 747-400 to take off from an airport. We had a few visit us recently on diversions at NCL.

RE: Britannia Most Punctual UK Charter Airline

May be punctual but they have lost the plot. There is nothing British at all about the new winking eye TUI on the back of the plane and that bad blue and red. I agree it was probably time for a makeover but it looks crap. Have you seen the crew uniform, its like something of Aeroflot around 1980. Ma...

The fleet is too old to be used as much as it is. they need to consolidate on A320´s, A321´s and A330´s. Get rid of the rusty Boeings, we already know the god awful DC-10´s are leaving.

MyTravel´s ageing DC-10´s are basically not helping the finances at the moment. It is only a measure of self preservation for the company that they will not renew the COA for them.
