@Travellator: I’ve done a gliding day at Lasham. The thought of landing an airliner there is, um, worrying.

Earlier this year I flew in and out of Temuco – southern Chile. There’s a recently cleared bit of woodland at the end of the runway. This was owned by some bod who refused to sell nor to cut down the trees, and they had to be lopped in order to give enough clearance for 737s to get in and out. Only happened this year, I think.

@staoge222 – one of the appealing things about a lot of BA cabin crew is that they’ve got so much experience.

Incidentally, if anyone wants an idea of what _really_ elegant air travel was like, check out http://www.airships.net/hindenburg/interiors

which includes shots of the replica interiors, at the museum at Friedrichshafen
