Is this what passes for a trip report nowadays on a.net?
People just flogging their personal webpages?

Huh..? I for one that it was a great report on an airline we don't hear much about. Thank you for taking the time to report on your trip.

What report? Did you reed one an A.net?
That was just an advertisement for the actual report on his own webpage. So no, there wasn't any report on a.net "trip report" section to reed.

What are you so salty about? That was a great detailed trip report. So what if he has written it on his personal site? Does that take away any value from it? Cross-posting it here on airliners.net makes it accessible to folks looking for trip report on Azerbaijan Airlines in the future. Re-writing the whole thing here again would be re-inventing the wheel and not everyone has that much time for it. If it bothers you so much, maybe you should volunteer to copy over complete trip reports here.

Nice to see a trip report about Azerbaijan Airlines. I've had flown on their A319 in the GYD-TBS leg, quite impressive service for such a short leg. Thanks for writing about this long haul flight.

Thanks everyone!! It's sad that Airliners.net opened their membership to anyone and don't require payment... Now we have unintelligent and useless members like "P1aneMad" who probably think flying Spirit Airlines is living the high life....

I'll be honest. The trip reports page is not user-friendly anymore to post detailed reports and people have deflected.

There has been explosive growth in the blogger / personal website space where people provide detailed reports on their travels, journeys and end-to-end customer experiences using Go Daddy, Word Press, Blogger and others.

I'll be the first to admit that it is much easier to do this with a website that provides for better content management and searchable engines, with cleaner layouts and the ability to drive return traffic for ANET members who otherwise wouldn't have known about their site. And when bloggers are paid to write stories and generate revenue based on traffic, then unique clicks and searches provide a greater overall incentive to post outside of ANET.

Such is life, but I'm on-board with it (and also have taken this route) but it is also enabling me to produce more reports with the same level of depth and information, yet while taking a fraction of the time to publish.

Better than a badly edited YouTube video with random music posted here to try and get enough hits for a couple of dollars from annoying adverts.

A good trip report, but fail to understand why anyone would admit to trying to steal a blanket and lie to the crew! I'd be embarrassed.

When talking about lack of intelligence you should really look in the mirror.
And not try to scrape a few clicks for your website by using the forum. This section of a.net in particular used to be really awesome. Try to keep it that way.

Great TR, always nice to read from such rare airlines... Will we see more TR's soon - like GYD to DME?!

BTW. 2-5-2 seating on UIA's B767-300ER is far too optimistic...

So easy to find this information online these days with very little effort. For instance, here is a link to a flight tracker webpage. I typed the airline name and the flight number (given by the OP in his introduction)

http://flightaware.com/live/flight/AHY102

Scroll down and look to the right and you'll see flight times of the most recent flights.

i don't see any report or even any link to a report - was the original post taken down?

Evidently the topic was started by aeromoe but now the first post appears to be P1aneMad with a 'Topic Author' flag

If the mods have intervened shouldn't they add a post to clarify?

Yeah, could we get the original link, please? This seems like a report worth viewing.

My flight (JFK-GYD) two months ago was around 10.5 hours.

Aeromoe (me) did not start this topic....it was member Cush. Reply #7 indicates this. Good question where the original post went.

Also - not sure why P1aneMad is now shown as the Topic Author. Curious.

I agree with few of the comments about it being quite a laborious process to post a half decent report on this site. But I have been doing it for over 3 years now, and quite used to this. I kind of have a template setup and I fill in the gaps as and when the trip occurs. Seems to work well. the only thing which takes a lot of time is photo uploads -> upload to anther photo sharing website -> copy and paste the url in html format.
However, I think I shall continue to do so. its worth to see users comments and feedback at the end of it.
I did come here to read the report, it looked like a good one.
