  1. The diving swan

    Let’s see If I have this correct? When Tiger were grounded a few years ago Qantas would not have included any reference to it in their bulletins?

    I was flying on Singapore Airlines on the two days after MH370 was reported missing, and there was nothing on their in-flight news. It’s more likely to be a general clause in news services provided to airlines although, as noted, Foxtel on Virgin and internet access on more flights makes this redundant.

    I fly quite often, so it doesn’t worry me. The tradition probably began when flying was a novelty, which it still is in much of the world, even as it becomes mundane and bus-like in wealthier parts of the world.

    I flew United from Los Angeles to Newark on Monday and was surprised to see a lengthy report on MH370 on the news bulletin piped to all seats prior to takeoff. The following story was about a Delta aircraft which lost part of its wing during a flight on Sunday. Obviously the US doesn’t share the same sensitivity for nervous fliers.
