Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

I purchased a Norwegian jacket this evening. It is made by Bergans.

I usually buy Swiss jackets (my favoured brand is Mammut) but I love this colourway.

Per, do you have a view on Bergans jackets?

Re: Scientific Engineers Botch Sinks, Lavatory doors.

This is a clickbait article about a non-issue. How many "extra seats" are really available from a slightly smaller lavatory?

Are there other domains that we should avoid linking to?

Sixty-six people are feared to have been killed in a passenger plane crash in the Zargos mountains in Iran.

The Aseman Airlines plane, en route from Tehran to the south-western city of Yasuj, came down near the city of Semirom in Isfahan province.

Re: Those Wacky TV Crews Are At it Again

I am not usually so harsh and unforgiving, but I welcome the actions taken against these idiots and firmly beleive that this kind of low-grade reality TV bullshit has no place in society. Whoever the development team and producer were need a slap. What a ridiculous idea.

And while we are off topic. This used to be my local airport, Geiteryggen Skien, closed due competition from Sandefjord Torp, and no possible way to extend the runway either way. Good riddance I say. although it's only a 25 mins drive from home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wP0sJqHAius Per Not p...

Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

I understand that Norweigan is doing cheap NYC flights... 300 quid round trip at the moment. Not bad. That would be from somewhere in "London" to somewhere in "New York "? Per You understand well the RyanScare model! No, in this case they fly from Tourist Shitbox Central - Gatsick - to JFKoff.

Re: Good For Delta - Crackdown on Comfort Animals

My personal reflection is that this is some form of corporate responsibility bullshit that they were forced to do in the first place and this is simply a return to "normal operations" - most reasonable sane people do not want to share cabin space with an animal that is terrified/confused/tired/frust...

Re: Turbulent Landing

Absolutely tremendous job by the crew, all kidding aside.
Yes, very impressive. But it does beg the question - why - surely that amount of movement and buffeting calls for another go once it has died down a bit.
