RE: Meals

EXACTLY....justin, you need to realize, a Jubilee is a 300+ passenger a/c 733s and A320s are 100 passenger planes, you can serve the food a lot faster and pick it up during that flight....On a big plane, it takes a LONG time to serve meals.

Jobs...

Vasco and Craig especially:

What kind of jobs do you have that enables you to get into these airports and get such great closeups of the birds? Or is there a way that civilians can get a hold of some sort of special pass?

Cockpits

Does anyone know if Emirates allows cockpit visits into their 777 200/300s? Any things I should do to be given the privilege? What about sitting in the cockpit for landing? Do they allow? Is it possible?

MH, KUL-SEA

I just saw a photo of a 777-200ER MH that flew NONSTOP from SEA to KUL, circled over KUL and then flew back to SEA....12,000 some odd miles, it set a record, there is a special sticker on the front of that plane. Why don't they make commercial flights that long the if it IS possible?
