Re: Crash Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 Tehran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

Without trump, the jet most probably wouldn’t have been shot down in the first place. He owns those families an apology at the very least. Without Trump, other families would be in mourne now. Probably from Iraqi and relatives from Nato allies. If you believe breibart maybe yes. So what are you say...

Re: Crash Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 Tehran-Kiev UR-PSR (08/01/2020)

(Old news) Trump clearly mentioned that someone from a dangerous neighbourhood (compared to the bronx i suppose) probably made a mistake. Meaning the rocket, if confirmed, is not from "Iran" but from a fool. Like everything trump says, we can assume this is only said to allow the stock market to go...

Re: Blue Skies forever

On New Year’s Eve, 4 BA cabin crew members between 20 and 25 years old were involved in a car crash close to the airport perimeter of LHR. 3 of them died and a fourth one is with life threatening injuries in hospital.

Re: Looking back to 2019: one year of flights

Very nice summary, it seems 2019 was a very good aviation year for you André! Worst flight : MRS-CRL on a Ryanair B738. More than 3 hr delay on departure, when the pilot pushed the engines to the maximum and arrived 2 hr 45 min late at destination, saving the airline 180 x 250 = 45,000 euros in EU2...

Have you flown in the 737-200 or classic?

OOJAH is ready to leave the fleet for Miami Air International.

Almost 50 aircraft leased for the whole season. What a mess.

Re: Consequences of the looming Thomas Cook bankruptcy on Brussels Airlines

I think the impact might be quite big. I posed the question last week and got flamed by “passenger” that TCAB wasn’t going to go bankrupt. The only winner in this story will probably be TUI. People look for a recognizable brand they trust when booking a package holiday. A new company doesn’t really ...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

So they certainly have to use "737 MAX 8" in commercial communication to the public. Actually, No They dont, they can even call it a “B7M8” on the website/ticket if they want. They also are not legally obliged to mention any type name on the side of the plane. Simply removing it is also a solution....
