Re: Airbus sucks too

Well, Lukla is at about 9000ft. So depending where you were, you might have been at a lower altitude than in Peru.

Re: The PROPER way to run an airline.

Was offered an upgrade AF, Business to First, LAX -CDG, '95. Asked if could smoke there, answer no. Thanks, but no thanks.
Ten mins later, "Mr. Bertelsen, it's OK, you may smoke in our First, you will be the only one there."
Happy days. :mrgreen:

On a second thought... 1250 lb of useful load A cruise speed of 200 kts with a stall speed of 53 kts. A rate of climb of 2000 fpm A range of 2600 NM Is not a typical combination of characteristics for a certified airplane. Especially not one with an empty weight of 1600 lb and 200 HP. I kinda doubt...

The Thais have chosen tomorrow, Friday 13th, to send me offshore again.
Fortunately I am not superstitious - as it brings bad luck. ;) :roll:
