Rinzylee, Lassa fever no go enter! What school did you apply too and course?
|Travel / Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Bandeco(m): 8:17am|
rinzylee:I would have suggested Scandinavian airline (SAS) which flies directly to Oslo but they don't operate in Nigeria.. Alternatively
Fly Emirate, Qatar
Or European airlines e. g Lufthansa, airfrance, KLM, British airways
Have you gotten admission??

|Travel / Re: My Near Crash Experience With Arik Air Yesterday by IBEXY(m): 1:05pm On Feb 07|
Sorry, but I felt this was an unnecessary trial at justifying an obviously shambolic service - especially the highlighted section in your post. This reaction is exactly why the Airlines do what they do. They know we dont want wahala and that we will always walk away.
Be it Air France or Arik, it does not matter. Knowingly putting people's lives at risk or treating them like animals, surely, should breach some aviation rules and regulation or at least Consumer/ service provider agreement. Its about time the Nigeria Aviation Authority (or whoever oversees the aviation industry) did something about these unsavory issues.
Put it the other way round, if you missed your flight or cancelled, will the airline let you off without charges?
You probably will ask what I would do in your place right?
a) Write to the Consumer Protection agency
b) Make as much noise as possible on social media about it (nairaland, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter) (believe me, it works these days - especially if it goes viral. Only a silly company will ignore social media these days)
c) Write a complaint to the airline (better than doing nothing)
d) write to all government agencies remotely connected to the industry concerned.
Have I had to do any of the above and did it work! O Yes!

The had to fly the plane to another airport anyway for the next contract.
The plane will be following a schedule and the next leg which is waiting for it may be fully booked.
Or it was carrying some freight that paid for the flight.

A holidaymaker found himself unexpectedly onboard
a "private jet" when no one else showed up for the
Alex Simon, 28, a travel blogger from Ischgl, Austria,
was stunned to discover he was the only one
onboard the Philippine Airlines flight from Manila to
Simon took a video of the bizarre experience, in
which he visits the pilots in the cockpit, and jokes
around with his personal flight attendants.
Alex Simon was the only passenger on a Philippine
Airlines flight from Manila to Boracay.
He told the Daily Mail when he arrived at the airport,
his name was called over the loudspeaker and he
was asked to make his way to the information
Staff explained the flight would be leaving in 30
minutes instead of the scheduled two hours because
he was the only passenger.
"I was little bit surprised and I couldn't believe it," he
told the Daily Mail .
"I thought I was dreaming. Later while boarding I just
realised that it's gonna be a special flight because
this time I didn't even need to line up."
When he boarded the plane, he asked the flight
attendant if he could take a window seat.
"She just answered, 'You can sit anywhere, because
you're the only one passenger'."
Simon said he was told flights between the
Philippines capital and the tourist island of Boracay
were normally packed.
"It was an unforgettable feeling to take a flight to
the one of the most beautiful islands of the world,
but to be alone and feel like a superstar it made it
Simon posted the video to his YouTube channel last
February, but this week it was picked up by Digg.
But he is by no means the first passenger to
experience the private jet treatment.
Last year British man Nigel Short boarded an Air
Zimbabwe flight from Johannesburg to Victoria Falls
to find he was the only passenger.
Despite the unlimited seating options on offer, Short
chose to sit in his assigned economy seat rather
than move to first or business class.

So why are you suggesting the FG take the same steps taken by Germany whose plane crash was caused by mental illness of a pilot,why suggest all Pilots be tested for Mental illness while the problem is with the Sirkosky 76C aircraft which is prone to crashing? Abi u dunno the meaning of what u posted?

There aren't that many aviation related topics here besides the plane crashes, but there are other forums dedicated solely to the topics and areas you mentioned.

She didn't ask for wheelchair so she had to queue with everyother person. They arrived at 4:45am and the border agency doesn't open until 5am so they had to wait in the plane until they opened. Fast forward to her turn

Dw: no second
Cbp:did you have your first here?

Someone then came to get her and she was taken to secondary inspection. She said there were 2 other preggy with her as well. They asked them to sit while they started attending to other people. They were sitting there for 3hrs!! without anyone talking to them
The 1st preggy was called and she was asked certain questions which they weren't satisfied with her answers so they took her burden of proof and dropped it on their supervisors table as he wasn't around
DW was then called
Cbp: why are you here madam
Dw: child birth and vacay
Cbp: How much do you have on you?
Cbp: ehn, surprised

Cbp: calls second officer and said, "there's a honest one here" looks at DL and said thank you for being honest
Dw: thank you
Cbp:So is this your first child?
Dw: no this is my second. (they already know this cos the 3 of us were on vacay last year to NY)
Cbp: Oh i see.. Did you have her here
Dw: no I didnt

Aircraft especially choppers are not that resilient. That thing is dead. Repairing it to meet airworthiness is akin to replacing it completely and the risks are just out of this world. Remember the plane that killed Agagu the second time and the Dana fleet. Anything beyond engine overhaul is a death sentence in Nigeria.

|Travel / Plane Makes Emergency Landing After 2 Female Flight Attendants Started Fighting! by mazechdotcom: 7:00am On Feb 02|
It was a big shame as two female workers of an Airline started fighting while plane was mid-air - 37,000 feet above the ground. Trouble broke out around 40 minutes into the flight between two cabin crew arguing. At the time of this report, it's still not too clear whether they were fighting coz of boyfriends or about 'work issues'. The plane was flying with 300 passengers on board when the fracas between the stewardesses started.
The pair allegedly began a fist fight - and a third female attendant who tried to calm things down was whacked in the face. When the captain heard of the trouble he radioed air traffic control to authorize an unscheduled landing so he could "hear from the flight attendants".
The plane diverted and landed where the three cabin crew members were kicked off for 'bad behavior'. The plane was grounded for about one and a half hours while a back-up crew was found before taking off again.
This is a big show of shame between these women who were supposed to take care of the passengers on board.
Read details, see them, the Airline, and where they were going to...

That is a very good and honest posting.
The trouble is that the people who should read and follow it would rather listen to a so called friend or an agent.
Too many borrow and borrow to travel believing that when they get off the plane
There are people waiting to offer jobs or marriage.
They have no plan but expect Manna to fall from heaven to pay their bills.
Anyway well done Mr Schwartz

Hugs, hugs... I can't claim to understand what you've gone through but God has. May this be a turning point for greater testimonies. God will replace all that you have lost sevenfold. I Pray that you will sing a new and joyful song this year. Bless God, praise him in the midst of the storm, for he who started the good work in you will be faithful to complete it.

|Travel / London To LA Plane Makes U-turn As Passengers & Crew Fall Iil by teebiggs(m): 2:33pm On Jan 28|
According to report, a strange incident occurred on American Airlines Flight AA109 from London to Los Angeles where 6 cabin crew members and two passengers suddenly fell ill, forcing the plane to declare an emergency landing and return to London.
When they landed at Heathrow, passengers said they were not told anything other than they should remain in their seats. An official from the London Fire service got on board the plane to carry out tests on the air inside the cabin before passengers were allowed to disembark but their luggage was confiscated for analysis. Panicked passengers told of the moment a plea went out for any doctors on-board the American Airlines flight, before the captain declared a 'medical emergency' and returned to London.
American Airlines has so far refused to speculate on what may have caused people to feel unwell, saying only that 'paramedics evaluated passengers and crew. None requested further medical attention.'
