Ahhh but there’s the con eselle…….
Let’s put aside MCT for the moment……How many times have you heard the proud claim that you have arrived ahead of schedule. Not at the point of engine’s off,but as soon as the plane starts taxing,sometimes long taxing to the gate. And indeed the amount of times the BD crew would say that we had made up time on our flight down from Edinburgh and they were pleased to announce we’d arrived as “scheduled” at 20.30 was too numerous to specifically mention. I’d look out my window to see our aircraft exiting the runway opposite the cargo apron ! And who can argue, I was in London at 20.30 as promised. Not bad time to make up,after all we we departed EDI a 1/2 hour late.
