Reply To: Tuesday BA to Phoenix

I can imagine a BA aircraft suffering an explosive decompression with the Captain getting sucked out and VK would still find a silver lining somewhere.

From my experience aircraft going tech is a reality of travel. How airlines deal with it is what defines how you remember the experience.

I have never had any problems with BA in this regard. I remember being delayed once in Sydney flying Olympic to Athens. Plane went tech. 5 hours later, still no word from the ground staff. Then it was off to hotels, after which they changed their minds and we boarded leaving 7+ hours late and probably minus an engine. Lucky their old 747-200s had 4.

New doesn’t always mean reliable. Think A380 and B787.
