London City – you are corredct, but it doesnt change the fact that there is a choice. Where FR are concnered i would prefer an extra 2 hours in a car to an alternative airport, of which there are now many. Sooner or later i beleive the CAA will close or censure Ryan Air – bit thats just a personal opinion. Is thre any truth in the fact that their pilots have to buy their own unifrm and pay for aprt of their training???
The C og G argument is interesting, but i know that a pax changing 1 row forward will not affect the stab trim. In fact the FMC can recalculate pretty quickly and the results take seconds to reload.
