Re: Looking for recent intel on Petropavlovsk - Kamtchatsy

Other than the incredible scenery what I remember most are the super hot English handler we had and the Mig-31s parked near the runway with armed guards, I still managed to take a few pics as we lined up to take off.

Re: New CEO

I don't know how "low cost" Flair employees are now but the gist of what the new CEO is putting out there is that they might end up being even lower cost in his vision of a ULCC.

ULCC... "Ultra Low Cost Crews" and customer experience".

Re: Dislocated shoulder

I had shoulder surgery to re-attach a tendon to the humorous and it was a 3+ month recovery till I could reach the everything I needed to on the overhead panel. Once I could I got my medical back.

I believe that as soon as you are required to have surgery of this type you lose you medical.

Re: @#$! 2020

This pandemic is showing just how fragile our capitalist democracy is and how close to the brink businesses and corporations are running in order to give the shareholders and the executives as much of the company profit as possible on the backs of the workers. It's showing how greed is more importan...

Re: Antonov An-225 headed to Mirabel (CYMX)

China is making an absolute killing off of this pandemic... pun intended. World... here is a virus for you now wait a few months and we will supply all the PPE to help keep you safe. But, they may or may not actually work correctly... you know "Made in China".

Re: Planes picking up medical supplies -- leave empty....

The more concerning thing is that China is profiting off of their viral pandemic and look to keep supplying the globe with PPE.

It's absolute horseshit.

Re: Approach ban

Interesting because for the enforcement of the approach ban a RNAV LPV is still considered non-precision... unless that has changed.

Re: Approach ban

I think an RNAV LPV is still considered a "non precision" approach so the ILS CAT1 approach ban doesn't apply to it.

Re: Fokker 100 Crash in Almaty, Kazakhstan Dec 26,2019

After a cold clear night and flaps, spoilers, and ailerons out to the winglets covered in thick opaque hoar frost, of course the stab would be as well, and no mention of de-icing from the Captain's PA I let the FA know to notify the pilots during push back about the state of the wings.
