Re: As God as my witness, I thought Turkies could fly...

Maybe a targeted personal ban is what you need HB.

I'm not walking to Chile again.
Not Karl has sworn profusely that he is NOT HB. Just FYI.

Please briefly describe your training and rules of thumb for handling passengers who may appear to be in bad health. Thanks in advance.

You don't get it. That girl is nowhere close to 6' 4". Can you see how her femur fits between the backs of the seats? Mine doesn't, whether I put my ass on the seat or on my back doesn't make a difference. This should solve most of your problems, especially since you now have some 747 sim time. htt...

Re: A380 troubles, the latest news...

Its Done https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/14/airbus-a380-superjumbo-the-rise-and-fall.html Frankly, I thought it was done when FedEx canceled their order. When an airplane that large can't be efficiently operated even as a freighter, one get serious doubts if there is an economic case for it at all.

Re: Air Canada 777 tail strike

Every pilot always has a 1st landing in every new type they fly. And it never ends like this one did (i.e. in a good but not perfect landing).
Never?

Re: 757 troubles. the latest news

I am wondering whether Boeing is considering (or considered and discarded, and why) other options. One would be to make what would be the 747 SP version of the 787. By reducing the pax and cargo capacity (length), and fuel and range, to something perhaps a bit better than a 757, they can reduce a l...

Re: Radio Protocol

I did not count the actual occurrences, but I was surprised at 90 degree turns and altitude assignments being given and the acknowledgement was just the flight number... That's not as surprising as an alleged former paramedic apparently not being aware that airport fire units don't just do aircraft...

Re: Yahoo Clickbait Aviation Spam

Airplanes have quirks and pilots have quirks. Not only pilots can tell certain airplanes from others of the same model without looking at the N-number, but if planes where self-aware (or if someone looked at their QAR) they could also tell certain pilots from others of the same "batch". These quirk...

It may have. When you said that Aviation wasn't a great example to play the "profit over safety" card, he might have found out that Dad works for the cable company, Wal Mart, or Ticket Master or something like that. Or maybe he simply paused and thought about it. Evidently, the "nomorekitten" polic...
