RE: Favorite Small Airport

I agree with Clrd2go...Manchester, <acronym title="All-Nippon Airways (Japan)">NH</acronym> is a beautiful airport, nice setting, nice terminal. Much easier to negotiate than Logan. Also, Hanscom Field in my hometown of Bedford, Mass....though I've never flown out of it, I go there now and then to w...

RE: Size Of The 777's Engines?

oddly enough, GE's website has the 90-115B's max diameter at 135 inches, only 1 inch more than the 94....though it does look much bigger....wonder why.

Interior cabin width of 737-800: 11 ft. 7 in. I believe the <acronym title="Precision Air Servi...

RE: BA Cabin Crew Asked Me To F Off!

"It's far too often that all the public wants to do is complain about someone. It's far too rare that the public takes the time to recognize good employees in this industry. If you felt that the crew was "superb," you should let <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> know." Absolutely. Well s...

RE: Scenic Approaches...

Landing in Boston on 22L, if you're on the right side of the airplane. Approaching <acronym title="Los Angeles - International (LAX / KLAX), USA - California">LAX</acronym> from the east, also on the right side you get the contrast of the huge mountains with the huge city. It's beautiful if it's a c...

RE: Are You An America West Fan?

I've flown America West back and forth from coast to coast a few times, and never had a problem with them, though it gets a little old flying through Phoenix. Flights were reasonably comfortable and priced well. I would choose them over Southwest just because I can choose my seat in advance.

RE: Who Loves To Watch The Flaps........?

Landings being my favorite part of any airplane flight, it's always interesting to watch the flaps being deployed. Especially seeing when they're deployed to what setting at what altitude and such on approach. Like Klm-md11 said, it is a bit nerve wracking to think that the pilot may forget to deplo...
