  1. Are you sure about this? i still haven’t seen or heard any evidence that UIA, or any other airline, were informed beforehand that ballistic missiles had already been fired at Iraq! If they haven’t been informed, then no reason to suspend flights. People seem to keep quoting the FAA warning US airlines not to fly in that area over that particular moment in time. Did they know something the rest of the world didn’t know? If so, why didn’t they relay any kind of message to other airlines, as quite a few European operators were already to and from Tehran at that moment in time!
  2. I’m following these events very closely at the moment. I saw the flight crew and attendants in KBP airport Tuesday night before they took off. Their flight took off 10 mins after I left Kyiv for Chernivtsi. its now been confirmed that the Iranians shot down the plane. So much for the word “impossible” I’m now sat back in KBP Kyiv airport waiting for my flight out. I’ve just passed the makeshift shrine to the lost crew of PS 572. It’s the saddest thing you will ever see in any airport around the world.
  3. Watched the Red Sea Diving Resort movie the other week. Based on a the true story of the Mossad and their plans to evacuate Jews from Ethiopia to Sudan and then onto Israel, by buying an old diving resort and using it as a cover story, only for the resort to be discovered by other tourists! They actually operated it for real and became quite profitable. Movie not quite as good as the true life story, but still not a bad watch.
  4. I flew in on THAI 2 days ago, although I’ve flown into Nagoya since then, and THAI are charging £80 for the bulkhead seat on board the flight! Cash to the chief steward onboard! If you try and move into these seats, they will remove you from them if you won’t pay!! As I observed on Monday’s flight out of LHR.
  5. Not sure where you get 28 inch of legroom from, as SeatGuru list all of Qatar's A350 fleet as having 31-32 inches!!! https://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Qatar_Airways/Qatar_Airways_Airbus_A350-900-Qsuites.php https://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Qatar_Airways/Qatar_Airways_Airbus_A350.php https://www.seatguru.com/airlines/Qatar_Airways/Qatar_Airways_QR_Airbus_A350-1000_V1.php I flew on 2 different versions of Qatar' A350 back in January, there definitely was more than 28 inch of space on both of my flights!
  6. Watched the start of a new drama series on Channel 4 last night, Catch-22! Clooney was good, going ape shit as his recruits couldn't march!!!

  8. Apparently, he died a couple of weeks ago in Thailand, according to officials at EVA.
  9. Not really, airlines do increase prices again after having a sale on!
