Re: Atlantic Crossings (by plane)

Narita was not open in the early seventies. This was probably after the O'Hare AA DC-10 crash in 1979.

Re: Short flights on wide-body planes

I flew lots of shorthaul widebody flights in the USA and Canada in the eighties and early nineties.
amongst others :
LGA-YYZ AC767
YYZ-ORD AA DC10
SNA-DFW AA DC10
DEN-ORD UA DC10
BOS-DTW NW DC10
ATL-DFW DL L1011
these short widebody flights are now mostly replaced by boring 737's or 320's...

Re: Air Canada 767-300

I've flown them several times the last few years (all economy flights) and to me they are one of the better North American Airlines. I consider them to be at least on par with Delta and certainly better than AA or UA. So not great but not bad at all. The 767's are old, (and it seems like they've bee...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2016

I'm not out to pillory someone at all, just pointing out who is responsible for these sickening actions. She is the chairwoman, so it's her own choice to be a public figure and to be seen as main figure of the GBATC. Therefore it's fair game to point out who she is. Pointing out is one thing, but t...

If you wonder who is responsible for such an action, meet Maryse Meulemans. http://i.imgur.com/aoZqQ7y.png https://www.facebook.com/maryse.meulemans What's your point? Is this the middle-ages where we're going to pillory someone ? I agree starting a strike in these circumstances is hideous, but sin...

Re: What is happening with Brussels Airlines?

Recently, FCO airport lost one of its terminals in a fire. Yet the airport was operating at near full capacity within 3 days as a crazy amount of AZ staff volunteered to work on days off and long hours. This is in Italy, where organisation is a mess. Also recently, NBO lost its main terminal in a f...

Wasn't that airline named 'General Air' ?
