I tried to vote for the Boeing 717, but an error message prevented me from registering my vote!! I think as a tried, tested and very well proven design, the Boeing 717 is hard to beat. Okay, the basic design is decades old from the DC9, but the avionics have been updated and it is still a fine aircr...

The Worst Airline I've Flown With - Ever

Quite simply, Air New Zealand is the worst airline I've ever experienced. My problems with this carrier began even before I had reached the airport. I had booked a multi-stopover holiday taking in Los Angeles, Sydney, Auckland and Hawaii, all flights with Air New Zealand, and how I regretted flying ...

For most beautiful aircraft (this one always crops up on another forum I post on) what about the Lockheed TriStar? Or the Comet? Or the VC10? The A340 always looked good in Sabena colours, especially with those dark blue engine cowlings, the livery suited the type perfectly. As for another Belgian 7...

I was having problems with this site yesterday - first with the Forums link from the homepage, and then the homepage itself. I kept getting an error message saying "fatal error" with both pages.

I hate that livery!! I read on another forum that it was seen at LCY doing a flight to Rotterdam, I hope it doesn't have a regular LCY-ANR run, I don't want to turn up at LCY on 1st September to discover I'm on this aircraft, I much prefer their regular livery.

I think I must be the only person who does not like these winglets, I asked this question on another forum last week, and everyone else disagreed with me. I do prefer the winglets on the 747-400, the 747 series looks better with them, but I don't think they look as good on a smaller aircraft.

Yes Andre - I am the same "Comet" - I use that name on all civil aviation forums, makes it easier to remember.
Sorry for this late reply to the post, but my computer has been playing up a little bit in the past few days.

The blended winglets look absolutely horrid, looks like Uri Geller has been at the end of the wing and done one of his bending tricks on it. They don't look right on the 737s, and by that I mean all winglets, not just the blended type.

Holidays - my favourite subject!!! I've had one holiday this year - Dublin for three days with Aer Lingus. The best is yet to come though!!! What can beat nine days in Mechelen, flying from London City (great airport, especially on the approach) with VLM? I don't know Mechelen, and would be grateful...

VLM LCY-BRU (and return)

Okay, this flight was last year, but I've only just discovered this forum (good range of topics by the way!!) These were my first flights with VLM, having been a die-hard Sabena fan before the bankrupcy. I found London City an easy airport to use. It is excellent for spotting, with a long walkway pa...
