    Most people remember the horrific crash of Poland presidential plane back in 2010. It shocked the world. But is the years past, the memories have started to fade. It’s always suprise me when it came to plane crashes. They’re horrific but we always seem to forget about that. I was kind of curious how would it feel to visit somewhat forgotten crashside.

    Why Planes Fly With One Passenger on Board

    Ohhh. Cramped space, noise, annoying fellow passengers…(you notice it’s always someone ELSE being annoying? Ha. That’s what a typical flight looks like. But what if you had the whole plane just for yourself? Before you say that it’s possible only for rich people who fly private jets, just listen to this… Sometimes airlines have to operate commercial flights with only one (in some cases 2 or 3) passenger. As you can guess, these lucky guys get a first-class experience for the price of an economy ticket. But why would airlines do so? Don’t such flights just make them lose money and it would be more logical to cancel them? Well,…

    Why Plane Seats and Windows Don’t Match Up And 31 Rare Facts About Flights

    Even though they’re one of the most popular ways to travel long distances, airplanes remain somewhat enigmatic and evoke countless questions. Can a plane fly if one engine is out? Do the wings do all the flying? But most importantly, why, after choosing a window seat, are you sometimes stuck looking at a wall??? Well let’s dive into this, shall we? 1. The pressurized air in the passenger cabin is as dry as the Sahara Desert – with only about 20% humidity. That’s why your skin may feel tight and your lips chapped during a flight. It’d make sense to install humidifiers that could add some moisture. But this extra…

    Is JETSTAR any good? Adelaide to Sydney Economy 4K Trip Report – Airbus A320 – feat. Dennis Bunnik!

    hello and welcome to Adelaide Airport and later this morning I’m going to be flying back to Sydney with Jetstar in an A320 but before that, let’s check out this aircraft behind me. It’s a Vickers Vimy bomber and back in 1919 this flew from Great Britain through to Australia, or Darwin in particular, to win a 10,000 pound competition. There are four Australians on board and took them 28 days. Now it’s interesting to compare this with now where you can fly that same distance in a new 787 dreamliner with Qantas nonstop from London through to Perth in a lot more comfort in over about seventeen hours. We…

    Saudia New A320 Flat Bed Business Class Scenic Flight

    – Welcome back. So today’s vlog is the last of four vlogs I’ve made in Saudi Arabia. Before the video, I want to share with you a few things about Saudia Airline. This airline has 150 aeroplanes in the fleet so quite a large airline in the Middle East with a young fleet, five years old average age. But not very well known airline because of maybe Saudi Arabia wasn’t open before in the past. Saudia isn’t quite Emirates, their business model is not transporting Western passengers through their mega hub, connecting around the world. In fact Saudia is quite a conservative airline. There is a pray area at the…

    Is it Wrong to Fly? – Glad You Asked S1 (E6)

    This is me in China in 1996, on a trip to see where my family came from.That trip was the first time that I rode in an airplane,and the first time that I got stuck in an airport.We’ve been waiting here for 9 hours now! Air travel is one of the great privileges of living in this century. And the number of air passengers is expected to double in the next 20 years. There’s just one problem. Aviation runs on oil, which contributes to global climate change.And there’s not a good alternative yet.So individual consumers were left wonderingabout their own responsibility.These blankets represent arctic sea ice.
