Re: Ryanair in 2019

So what do you suggest if someone refuses to come along? Knock them out first? Sedate them? What he and other passengers think is irrelevant, if a captain decides you’re not going, you’re not going. End of story The captain is allways allowed indeed to decide it's a no-go. But the captain then has ...

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....

TUI fly Belgium flight TB2031 from Brussels to Boa Vista (Boeing 737-800 reg. OO-JAQ) diverted to Tenerife South around 09:15LT ... to be refuelled. Wrong calculation? Unexpected headwinds? With too much headwind, sometimes the 737NG can't reach Boa Vista with full passenger load unfortunately. Pas...

Re: Boeing 737 (MAX) news

Vueling may move away from an all-Airbus fleet and migrate to the B737 MAX, according to Willie Walsh, CEO of parent IAG. Did Walsh lose some bolts and become nuts? How will his customers react? They're probably cheap to buy now, and will be delivered long after the MAX has proved itself safe :geek...

Re: Safety question: always passengers at the emergency exit or not???

Hi, I thought that exit doors on the wings always should be manned(womanned ;) ) during a flight. Flew with SAS this week the 12 seats were empty. Last year with Ryanair this was also the case but the cabin crew asked some people to move to the exit seats. Ryanair has it as a company policy, but it...

Airlines and passengers will get the service they pay for when there is the correct and responsible amount of staff for the maximum traffic they would like to have flying around. It's that simple.
