Re: British Airways in trouble? Newspaper story.

As much as I feel for the employees, this is one airline that deserves to fail. It lost the moral right to be called 'British' many years ago. Good riddance - in advance. Pray tell Damien why this is so and have you flown with BA recently? Why does it deserve to fail and why has it lost the 'moral ...

Re: Ryanair's latest scam...

I've only flown BA once (on our Honeymoon) and was quite disappointed, we went to California, and on the way out we were in a nice relatively modern 747-400 - but on the way back it was a rather shabby 747-200 (ok skin deep) - everything seemed to rattle on take off etc - and very old .... Bloody '...

Pink Floyds 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' which accompanied the then Unipart Gliders Team was just superb. (Even if Brendan OB was involved!!! :handbag: )

Re: RSAF Museum, Riyadh

Hi Bear,

Great shots of something a bit different.

Could you remind me. Is this the museum that is just down from the Nags head? From Threshers you pop down past Madame Abdullahs massage parlour, turn left, past the church and then just round the corner. If so, must pay it a visit :wink: .

Re: BA worst for cancellations?

Not surprised really when it operates out of a balls up like Heathrow!!

A pigeon "Kris Kris Tofferson!" in Slough and a/c start diverting all over the South of England to airports that have that bizarre thing called spare capacity....One thing LHR is sadly lacking!

Re: BA Flight Emergency landing....

I think the line "Its crew had detected a burning smell." in your link tells you all you need to know. Why you think a diversion is a shock I do not know! As was said 'SR111'. Because of a fault with the in-flight entertainment system!!!!!! I kid you not! BBC Link to story Quite agree, bu...
