RE: Any Of You Ever Been In A Semi-plane Crash?

I was on a Britannia flight from LTN to LPA when there was a problem with the air conditioning system. The flight returned to LTN and departed again 3hrs later

RE: Which Airliners Do Pilots Dislike

I'm surprised any Russian planes aren't up there.

RE: Eva Air / Garuda Indonesia...

According to OAG.com you have to change planes at CGK when going to DPS. You get the 744 and then D10.

What Happened To Anchorage?

Several years ago I flew directly from London to Anchorage on the 742 with BA. Why did BA suspend the route? Did the route continue to any other destinations? How often did it operate? When was it suspended? Also, what other airlines flew from Europe to ANC? Did those airlines continue to any other ...

RE: PIA Is Buying 777

The other 742s were probably salvaged for spares.

Will they use the 772s on their LHR route?

RE: BA Business Class, Crampy?

I think the new BA Business class seats are Brilliant. I don't care about facing strangers or the seats not being private because I will be sleeping for most of the flight anyway. I think these new seats are excellent, a huge improvement on the previous cradle seats.

RE: Crossair B-777?

I think like Swissair and most other European Airlines they will opt for the A340.

RE: Opinions On Air China

Thanks for your help. I think that Garuda Indonesia is quiet a good airline so I expect that Air China will be similar to them.

RE: Eva Air / Garuda Indonesia...

I would go with Garuda. You can upgrade to premium class for £99 where you get 44inches of legroom (I think) Even in Cattle Class the seats are comfortable, the toilets are huge, friendly F/A, nice food.

I would go to Bali, I went their on holiday last year and didn't want to leave.

RE: EVA Air Replacing 747-400

I find this rather strange considering that they like cargo, yet they are disposing the Combi aircraft. Still, it will be great seeing EVA 777s at LHR.

What about Garuda

BNE-DPS 330 (I think)
DPS-TPE D10

Garuda offer competitive fares.

RE: Europe-Sydney, Which Airline?

I reccommend Garuda Indonesia. You can stop off at CGK.

I flew Garuda last year and I thought they were fairly good. They give a lot more leg room than most European airlines.

You will get to fly on their 747-400s and A330-300s.
