@NewtonMark @nazzer Some bullshit about wanting to adjust the flaps but if that isn’t reportable to HR I don’t know what is.

@DavidFeng Sorry, is someone forcing you to live in Beijing? Or do you just like whinging?

@drsimmo That is indeed an interesting question. Our anti-terrorism laws are… interesting.

@JonoH I don’t know where you get the idea that the media gets to be up the front of the plane.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@JonoH OK, MEL-AUH is the 777-ER. AUH-IAD and the return legs are 787-900s.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JonoH

@JonoH I think I’m on 777-ER both legs. Let me check.
