Re: richard branson.......is

The engine manufacturers have said its safe and as per the article 1000 flights went last week without any issues whatsoever from France with the same ash density which has caused UK airports to close

Re: richard branson.......is

Don't know whether he's right or wrong. I do know that I wouldn't volunteer to be a passenger on any plane sent up to prove him right.

With our trip to Turkey getting closer, I'm wondering whether we will be affected if the ash cloud is over some of the countries on the flight path between Ireland and Turkey, or are the planes re-routed around the cloud?

Re: richard branson.......is

No one doubts that precautions should be taken but at times there appears to be total overkill with this safety first. And before someone trots out the "its better to be safe than sorry" line if you are going to follow that way of thinking you wouldnt consider flying at all

according to the article, the caa are waiting for the engine manufacturers to confirm levels of acceptable ash

The article doesnt say 1000 planes flew in the same conditions from france, it actually quotes branson as saying 1000 planes flew from france in similar conditions, similar not quite being the same.

just a play on words

Re: richard branson.......is

its the same difference

anyone who doubts its an over reaction-which came to an abrupt end last time due to financial pressures-explain to me why one day it was like hades up there and impossible to fly yet 12 hrs later, with the same ash about it was suddenly ok

total over reaction

Re: richard branson.......is

I dont doubt its an over reaction, but while i was holed up in hospital last week i saw a program on it, cant remember which but probably a 24 hr news prog, i was pretty well drugged up at the time, the guy explained that the difference was altitude wind speed and all sorts of other differences, that my drugged up mind couldnt take in, bottom line is the engine manufacturers are unlikely to put there knecks out and say its no problem carry on flying, and that is the key
