The fog in London though not as bad as in years past is still legendary. My question is this... After a hop across the pond, what determines a diversion, besides the obvious lack of fuel as opposed to a holding pattern? I have been in several holds above <acronym title="London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL...Jump to post
I have had my fair share of non rev hops, but other that proper business casual, what is considered appropriate as a non revenue customer, and for that matter what should you expect in terms of in flight service?

The checkin <acronym title="MAT Macedonian Airlines (Greece)">IN</acronym> is a nightmare and the as far as airlines go.. Southwest had a ton of those lil 737's.

Now that the Concorde has gone belly up, did research come to a halt on supersonic engines when they got hitched to <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> and <acronym title="Air France">AF</acronym>?

If you have never driven on that side, and you just must drive in the UK, I suggest you have someone with you to remind you to GET OVER, when you make turns into the wrong lanes around corners etc. The round a bouts will drive you batty as well.

Maybe someone can explain to me the financial consequences of all those aircrafts currently parked in the desert out west. I know after 9/11, many were "stored" due to lack of need. Were all those aircrafts paid for? Can one assume that the financial difficulties of most airlines was exacerbated by ...Jump to post

I think the industry has a long way to go in convincing the public, including me that 2 engines across the Atlantic is just fine. Comparing the 757 with the 707 based on aisles isn't the whole picture. It has more to do with 2 additional engines. Perception of safety being everything!! When I first ...Jump to post
BA's 777 service is typically British understated competent service.

Johnboy I have asked myself that question several times.
Maybe she needs to get that Dorothy Dandridge role out of her head!
She sounds like hard work.
For the record, for all who's lives it affects, I always ignore threads I find ridiculous!
Discuss amongst yourselves!
Schoenorama, thanks for directly addressing my original thread, points well noted. Dr Kelly's name was publicized by the BBC who supposedly got it from a Government source, hence the Hutton inquiry. All over the same issue(Iraq). Interesting to say the least! On the day of Tony Blairs testimony the ...Jump to post
Cfalk I tend to agree with you, but being a die hard Democrat, I'll add this much, If this had been Clinton, a Kenneth Starr type would be on the case, subpoenas flying left right and center, and the bodies would soon be discovered!

We should only be so lucky!
I was in the UK recently and couldn't believe the furor.
Blair didn't deserve it.
That informant should have kept his mouth shut instead of blabbing to the BBC.
His suicide was unfortunate, luckily for Bush no one has gone belly up yet
Has anyone else draw a parallel between the ongoing Hutton inquiry in the UK and the just ripening Bush controversy of the naming of a <acronym title="Rome - Ciampino (CIA / LIRA), Italy">CIA</acronym> informant? It seems awfully similar situations of both sides of the Atlantic and the naming of sou...Jump to post
