Re: Airbus sucks too

I could've sworn I saw some posts on another forum where a certain marine engineer was about to school some young wannabe professional pilots on the difference between sucking and blowing. Did they get deleted?

Just to be argumentative- I see NO reason to go around... I just want to understand THIS procedure: "Should we stop monitoring airspeed" "Yes". you aren't going around when you detect something is wrong the flaps then? so that you can in particular ensure you are monitoring your speed against the a...

Ever had to unload fuel at the gate? Recent experience my LAX-DFW A321 came out from the hangar fuelled as if it was going all the way to the East Coast. End result sitting on the ground for over an hour as they slowly pumped off fuel to get us below Max Landing Weight into DFW. As pilot said, desig...

I'd give a trip report on the benefits of premium economy but at the gate my boarding pass beeped and I...

May I please offer a piece of rare monchavian speculation. This would appear to be a piece of pilot error. Thank you.
