Re: Total Kenya Airways E190 Ground Disaster

Since it involves SI units and soccer, I could not care less. I’m guessing the temperature was in the 20s.

As flyboy likes to remind us, I imagine there is paperwork involved.

Lengthy Gabrielian flight report
That’s six for six...amongst the licensed self proclaimed insider (in our minds, anyway) experts.

Donkey carts improve their relative standards.

Good job on the photos- which I’ve become lazy about posting.

Hey, 3WE, every aeroplanie you get in immediately explodes in one way or another (OK, not always immediately , shimmy dampers tend to explode on landing) or gets covered in 50 M of snow .

3. We arrive at A gate to be told- “no- go back to D- about 5 gates from where you first were.

AA- you are #Awesome.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Pilot just set takeoff flaps (engines not started)

And now the whole flight just got canceled due to flight attendant time out. (And passengers asked off)

Oh, no- an update...the passengers say they don’t want off...we’re supposedly going

But another spray down (4) with flaps configured.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Dudes soaking the hell out of wing this time. Trailing edge ice cycles seem to be holding. Blasted the leading edge soaked the top....conversely the little bitty back flap (737) still looks coated.

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

Two spray jobs (15 min between)- pink stuff- and still ice cycles on wing. Crew reports that wind is complicating efforts. Third spray down underway.

Some reason they don’t do this before boarding?

Seen it there, and Gabriel (and some “data”) suggest in-flight break up.

Maybe there will be quality discussion here.

Did you rioted? In spite of essentially missing the world cup of real football, we did not_rioted. 4:50 minute delay. Of note is that the flight crew made zero apologies-just the normal 'thanks for flying with us'. I'd blame AA, but it was a regional company. Evan should note that a breakdown and s...

Re: Flight report Feb 2019

I’m sure the crew is in touch with operations, who is using phrases like “roger that” and “on the way” and “just as soon as we can”.

Trouble is, those are meaningless phrases.

Now 4:40...

Time to name names.

American Airlines

Cabin crew says “ if they would have just let us start the engines- we’d have burnt off the extra by now.”

Also rumors that they completely filled the first fuel truck.

Update 4:20...the fuel crew isn’t actually here yet.

Weather ok in DFW- just a broken CRJ and one with too much fuel.

Crappy logistics.
