1, stay in Uni 2, get a manual licence. FWIW, there are so many different types of vehicles on the ramp, mostly auto, but still many with manual boxes . As a poster up thread mentioned, it’s a different skill set to get a manual licence , and in theory easier to get an auto. It’s all about the left ...Jump to post

I don’t think SFO or any of the US airports are slot controlled. Perhaps they couldn’t get a gate at the time they wanted though? Yep sorry - I misspoke. They wanted a gate for a later departure time, but those gates were already all occupied by Asian carriers at the A Gates. I think that's part of...Jump to post
Just a note on 744BDSF 9H-MSK. They repainted her before sending her to IST. We were wondering what was up with her while she was stored/being-worked-on at MCI (for over 4 years). There's a photo of her on another major photo site, in her new simple-but-professional livery. She looks really nice. Y...Jump to post
Have transited SVO several times, always found it very easy, including the private airside transfers over to Terminal C.
Unsure why you find it a nightmare.

Sceptics don’t travel well.
A yank abroad is usually a handful,
Europeans are much more travel minded, and can handle themselves much more eloquently when travelling.
Shout and scream as much as you want, but it’s true.

Have met Sam a few times, real genuine guy.
Looks like they’re gonna let him fly out on the ex Eva bird when it leaves, also looks like that do a humanitarian run before it enters either MX or service. So I guess we’ll have another good video to look forward too.
This is a good link about two of our babies.
Also At time line 9::40, it confirms N570B went to heavy MX at HHN.
Can we update the thread title to read London to Goa please.
Not as unusual as your math.
25 mins perhaps… lol
Its not surprising, all major carriers are still in recovery mode after 2020. Decommissioning aircraft in order to save some pennies might be a good thing in the long run... Should "JB" be parted out, its not because BA are still in recovery mode and wanting to save pennies, its because t...Jump to post
Question for all, There used to be multiple source webpages that gave great updates info on each airline, eg the BA source, EK, QF, VS, you get the picture . However, just tried looking some info up earlier, and the sites seemed to be hacked by a Redbubble shopping channel. Any one with more info or...Jump to post
So here’s my take on it. Answers up thread say it’s from a CP 747. In the rear hold/ bulk area, the floor is generally sloped up towards the tail, except for when you crawl in thru the inward opening door. That part of hold5 / the bulk is actually flat iirc. My take is that container was probably a ...Jump to post
Its operating, Search for HP330 / HP331 / HP332 / HP333 or SE-MFY on FR24, the standard data is showing as operated by FlexFlight hence its not picked up. SE-MFY is shown on Airfleets as having a first flight of 21 December 1989, which is interesting as it's in amongst the lowest MSNs. All the rest...Jump to post

In Europe TUI have 2 different safety cards for the 737-800 and the 737-Max8. The -800 has a classic style life jacket where you tie the straps in a bow. The Max has a clip-style life jacket fastening. So they can’t share a safety card. The TUI 737 Max safety card simply refers to the 737-8 for obv...Jump to post

Quick summary/guesswork, looks like the catering truck gave it a right good whack just by door R2, which spun the aircraft around to the right subsequently hitting the mobile GPU with the radome.
As long as no ones hurt…..
They other bits can be repaired .
Re : AA787/EI330 incident. AA pushback procedures dictate that a wingwalker is present on both wings at all times during the push. Clearly someone wasn’t where they were supposed to be or if he was, the pushback driver ignored the stop signals. Anyway, nobody hurt which is the main thing with ramp a...Jump to post
Both the holes are next to each other.
Ground support equipment is readily available on stand .
Unfortunately , just a human error accident.
Just lucky the person injured only had minor injuries.
Most things are repairable/ insured.
It’s a lot harder to repair people.
Great update .
Looking at the video, I suspect the APU was inop, as there are two air starts underneath the deployed slide.
