From Palma to Newcastle rather, or did Brexit England switch to Spanish? The sky does look English though...

Looks like the aircraft is not configured for take off, so arriving at PMI.

Quite hilarious conversation between tower and follow me.
Follow me: ‘I think there is a pink flamingo on the tarmac
Tower: A pink flamingo? Yeah, You are joking, right?
Follow me: No I do confirm a pink flamingo, an easyJet just had to brake for it
Tower: Yeah, right (in a tone which suggests he still doesn’t believe it)... well, just keep an eye on it then!

"Comfortable new seats"? That's what ANA says. But in Economy, they are still configured 9-across, i.e. with a width of only 17in. Comfortable? OK for 2 hours, but not on an intercontinental trip.

ANA, take example on Japan Airlines: 8-across!

9W are closer to bankruptcy than AZ. Probably imminent. However there is no discussion of 9W's financial turmoil on this site .. Surprising !
No discussion on 9W, indeed, but regular reports on the main page and sometimes in the Trivia 2019 forum.

And everyone can open a thread on any aviation topic! ;)
I was surprised as well, but too late to begin one...
Perhaps not: Jet Airways 9W-223 Amsterdam-Delhi departed from Amsterdam this afternoon!

What a pity that Paul Allen (founder Stratolaunch, co-founder Microsoft) couldn't enjoy this magic moment anymore. Paul Allen died in 2018.
