    Breeze & maybe Rex ?

    It won’t be the E-jets or A220. There are triple the size of the Saabs seat wise. There is nothing currently that will replace them. Even the E135 are about 3 tonnes heavier than the Saabs at minimum operating weights for the same seats. Jets are probably too expensive in the market that Rex...

    It’s actually 1 CC if 36 seats or less but can go to 1:50 with CASA approval.

    The moment they go over 50 seats they need an extra cabin crew

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    Crosswinds increase the possibility of tail strikes. QF10 VH-ZND, 09Feb, got an EICAS tail strike indication which may only mean an activation of the tail strike sensors rather than an actual tail strike. (Apparently no damage found). Nevertheless requires a return to airport and as a...

    I can understand CC not wanting to be involved in low level inter-passengers skirmishes. They are not paid enough to have to deal with all the excrement that the passenger dish out.

    QF Dreamliners in Y - what are people's experiences?

    They should call it Petite class. It’s not surprising because the marketing blurb and pictures has similarly sized people sitting in Y giving the impression that it’s spacious. Most of the models heads for the photos hardly go beyond the top of the seat.

    So... what car do you guys drive when not flying?

    I use logbookme.com.au to log start and stop location, times, dates, and distances. Unlike the Navman it does not display the route - just data relating to start/finish. Business and personal trips can be apportioned. the little unit plugs into the car’s OBD socket. About $1 perday.

    What about the Honda civics with the semi- 3 speed auto gearbox Hondamatic. It was actually a 2 speed - the third was the second gear with lockup torque converter.By the time I got rid of it it has 1 speeds - one forward one reverse.

    So... what car do you guys drive when not flying?

    Do you notice or have enough of a resolution @cove that certain drivers have a higher fuel consumption? Are you referring to the Ascent Sport hybrid or Ascent Hybrid?

    So... what car do you guys drive when not flying?

    While a tractor will go almost anywhere and you will never get speeding tickets?, it does not have a full size spare. How large does the foam canister need to be to pump up a flat tractor tyre?

    So... what car do you guys drive when not flying?

    While the technology inclusions in some cars are attractive, I actually want a car that has vinyl floors. Much easier to clean. But they don’t make them like that
