RE: Time To Go To War

What exactly will killing Bin Laden solve? He's not the only person capable of causing damage to the US. By killing him you'd actually probably do more harm than good. The guy seems to be untouchable anyway.

RE: Obviously It Was Bin Laden

Terrorism isn't as easy to combat as some may think. Fighting fire with fire isn't always the solution. People in Northern Ireland and Israel can back me up on this as tit-for-tat attacks just lead to one innocent death after another. What's needed is more dialogue and less combat. What we have witn...

RE: An Englishmans Viewpoint To The Events In The US

The events in the US have put alot of things into perspective for me. My thoughts and those of everyone else I know here in Ireland go to all those who are suffering at this moment in time.

RE: Time To Go To War

Bush or anyone shouldn't go jumping to conclusions and retaliate too swiftly. Otherwise it may only make the situation worse and provoke even more attacks.
Who's to say it's not a group of Timothy McVeigh-like Americans? Don't speculate.

RE: Whats Dublin DUB Airport Like?

DUB is an architectural disaster. All the extensions that have been added over the years look very different to each other. There always seems to be construction work going on too. At peak times the airport can be a nightmare due to congestion and is also bad from an enthusiast's point of view. On t...

RE: Shorts 360!

MEA-707, I can relate to your Aer Arann experience. A few months I watched a 360 take off from Sligo in fairly blustery conditions and it lurched and jerked as soon as it was airborne. Landings in such conditions (quite common in Sligo) are just as hairy. They're fun to watch but far from fun when y...

Yeah the LTU 330 still flies there to/from Dusseldorf on Monday evenings. There are also a variety of 767s operated by LTU, Condor, Air 2000, Britannia, etc. JMC operate DC-10 flights from LGW. I was at Heraklion just last month but sadly didn't get do much spotting. That's the downside of having a ...

RE: Gatwick Or Stansted?

STN isn't the very poor for spotting. There are no views at all from inside the terminal. To spot at STN you need a car and even then it's not easy. Also as VS744 pointed out the range of airlines is very limited.

RE: Shorts 360!

The 360 may not be the prettiest or quietest of aircraft but it serves its purpose well, is fairly reliable and has a pretty good safety record. Sadly the 360 seems to be dying out. Aer Arann currently operate into my local airport with one but are replacing the 360s with ATRs. It's for the best but...

Sterne82,
I stand corrected. The IL-96 is not scheduled to fly to Paris.

Cba,
Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh are seperate cities but Ho Chi Minh City used to be known as Saigon.

RE: Will BA Add More North American Routes?

SJC would be a good choice because it would allow BA to link up with fellow OneWorld member AA there for flights to Honolulu, Kahului, Portland, etc. It would also provide better access to Silicon Valley than SFO but economic conditions would need to improve. SJC is long overdue a link with Europe.

Hash,
I'm almost certain it'll be a 732. 738s are still quite a rarity at DUB and whenever they do operate there they tend to be to/from STN and charter destinations.
