  1. Re: Malaysian Airlines Airbus flies wrong way for 1 hour, company files wrong flight

    The final safety net in this saga is when the pilots insert the flight plan route into the computers, in this case the Flight Management and Guidance System. They would have seen the routing and...
  2. Re: Malaysian Airlines Airbus flies wrong way for 1 hour, company files wrong flight

    Maybe he wanted to visit krafty in Tasmania.
  3. Re: Malaysian Airlines Airbus flies wrong way for 1 hour, company files wrong flight

    Yes, the people who did the filing, ATC and the pilots are all to shoulder the blame on this one. Strange that so many safety layers were busted.
  4. Re: Malaysian Airlines Airbus flies wrong way for 1 hour, company files wrong flight

    In this case they had to work even harder than normal.
  5. Re: Malaysian Airlines Airbus flies wrong way for 1 hour, company files wrong flight

    You are indeed correct. The flight plan would have been filed long before the intended departure time by MAS or its handling agent, more so since this was a scheduled flight by a 'main' carrier.

    YTP still going strong.
  7. Re: PRC made 737 ordered sold like hot cake, delivering now! exceeding 500 orders

    A loose definition of precipitation is.....Anything that falls from the sky except airplanes.

    After what TS posted I don't know if this definition will hold for very long.

    what the (big) fish is this?
  11. Re: Wholly Toledo! God is showing his Power again!!!

    Kind of early for typhoons to hit this part of the world but its global warming I suppose.
  12. Re: Boycott cathay pacific - Its a racist airline

    In this case it is not about the airlines , it is about whether the Governing authority who issue the airlines its' Air Operator's Certificate ( CAAS in the case of Singapore ) would allow. I don't...
  13. Re: Boycott cathay pacific - Its a racist airline

    This is a safety issue nothing more, nothing less. To share the seat with an adult most airlines stipulate that the child must be younger than 2 years old. A little give and take is usually allowed...
  14. Re: Drunk passenger causes Ryanair flight to be diverted

    Usually the diversion costs have to be borne by the unruly passenger who may also have lawsuits against him from other passengers.
  15. Re: Fighter jets escort two passenger planes after bomb threat

    One of the reasons is that the fighters escort them to fly an air corridor that minimises overflight over populated areas.

    Re: AirAsia jet climbed fast then stalled

    Commercial jets are not likely to have vertical speeds that are faster than Cumulonimbus buildups and updrafts. His reported climb rate of 6000 feet per minute cannot outclimb most of these storm...
  17. Re: guess the race: man complains endlessly to sia even though its his fault

    The way they look and the shape they are in, if some of them wear briefs the airlines would lose their passengers.
  18. Re: guess the race: man complains endlessly to sia even though its his fault

    You are in error on this as there is no such discrimination. All the major airlines have agreed on and implemented this and the ground staff have their briefs, guidelines and orders to follow these...
  19. Re: guess the race: man complains endlessly to sia even though its his fault

    Not necessarily so. There is usually no service recovery steps taken if it is the passenger's fault. In fact he would usually have to pay extra for admin charges.
  20. Re: guess the race: man complains endlessly to sia even though its his fault

    For almost every major airline his arrival at the gate would be way too late. If by about 10 minutes to departure time and the passenger is not at the gate and cannot be located then the procedures...
  21. Re: It's really a bad idea to climb over the thunderstorm...AirAsia QZ8501

    If the storm cells are too big and widespread as in big line squalls then the issue has to be resolved on the ground prior to departure. The pilot would have to plan an alternate route around the...
  22. Re: It's really a bad idea to climb over the thunderstorm...AirAsia QZ8501

    Correct...chances are you can never outclimb thunderstorm clouds, even one that is forming. The energy level of active cumulonimbus cloud in the forming, mature and dissipating stage can rip an...

    Re: Thinking of buying one of these

    Gone solo already? Be careful of line squalls around Indonesia if you plan on flying around those parts eventually.
  25. Re: Air Asia flight bound for Singapore lost contact with air traffic

    Again no reported distress call from the aircraft.
