RE: Ebola Victim On Virgin Atlantic Flight

The Ebola virus is a nasty piece of work, but no need to panic over it. The infectious cycle of the virus ensures that a pandemic is impossible. In the initial stages it is not contagious, so in this case it is nigh impossible that the infected person spread the virus to anyone else aboard the plane...

RE: Ibiza Airport

There are planes coming in every five minutes in peak season there and the airport aproach is very close to some cheap hotels. Book a room at one of them and enjoy seeing planes aproaching and departing from a very nice vantage point.  <img src="/discussions/graphics/smilies/wink.gif" alt="Wink...

RE: What Spoils A Flight?

Well, good news for Airbus that there were no certification issues on the A346HGW. According to the press release Airbus will not begin the certification of the A345HGW until early 2007. I can understand that Airbus isn't rushing the A345HGW, but I'm glad that they aren't scrapping that project &nbs...
