The log-in issue has now cleared for me (W10/Avast/Firefox/Chrome/Edge). I would like to hear (on 'Computer connection issues') of anyone else still having issues.

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread VI

I'd like to see the selection psych tests BA are using. They're certainly hiring a few entertaining folks. Big on shenanigans but short on common sense.

My guts are finally settling down. Woo hoo.

Bird murdering

The delightful joy of smacking into a flock of gulls who were minding their own business on the runway. No evidence of engine impact etc. We'd gone past V1 and had just begun to rotate...

Yeah, my sleep was disturbed last night. I am using an Oura ring for tracking sleep etc and it confirmed it. Probably caffeine related.

I honestly had one passenger (Russian) ask "how much would it cost to make the weather improve?". :o

Re: Won't wear seatbelts..aka Princess Diana Syndrome

:) No, for some reason, many rich folk think that turbulence etc doesn't affect them. Many times they have walked around when the seatbelts signs are on. Rather frustrating to be honest. But now, many are finally obeying them. I'll give it a month until that has worn off...

Propulsion is from either a small motor or a wing (not a sail...

Re: The really boring and totally pointless snippets thread V

A couple of reasons are possible fot 9H-GLOBL's routings. Sector training for the pilots. Ie need X number of sectors to be released. That FL looks below RVSM. Numerous reasons for that. Dodgy autopilot, transponder not working properly, felt like it... :)
