    No show - last sector?

    No, the bag count would be short but the ground staff would still be required to check all the bags on board to ensure they were not loaded. I have personally done this before, I was supposed to be flying from LAX-SYD-MEL once, I decided to stay in SYD for an extra day, I just asked the LAX...

    No show - last sector?

    When you check in in HKG, ensure the ground staff only check you in as far as MEL. Even though you have picked up your bags up and cleared customs, the system shows your bags as through checked and a bag search will begin when you no show.

    Virgin Ticket Availability ( Is this normal)

    The Boeing sky interior aircraft have have the 8J 168Y config but some of the early sky interior aircraft are not fitted with power sockets. Also the 10 aircraft (VUR-VUZ & BZG) delivered just prior to the BSI aircraft are also in the 8J 168Y config.

    Its Going to fall over

    This is what happens when a 737 is incorrectly unloaded. When the forward door is only being used for disembarkation, the rear cargo hold must be emptied prior to the forward hold.
