Aircraft 13x738, 7x380, 2x333,321,773,320, 1x744,788,343,350,332

Re: Squid Annual round up 2016

(I love squid, prepared one just last week, it had eaten a tiny anchovy or whitebait before being killed, the fish was still in the stomach of the squid)....

Unloading Fuel

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...

Re: A350 Troubles the latest news......

Had my first A350 flight last month (as well as 787 and surprisingly A340 as well). I suspect it was the pilots first A350 flight as well by the way he yanked back on the control column to rotate. I'd give a trip report on the benefits of premium economy but at the gate my boarding pass beeped and I...
