RE: 747 Or 777?

The B747 ("Queen of the skies") is unique, whereas there are many twins with one deck around, aren't they?

Take the B747 first, walk up to the upper deck and just be impressed by the size of this aircraft.

Comfortwise, the B777 is better.

RE: How Much Do Air Traffic Controllers Make?

The same topic has been started two days ago already, but anyway...

AFAIK, ATC controllers in Germany are well paid (and it's quite hard to get the job) and make about $5000-6000 a month.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that''s what I read.
