    I think we missed that AC took delivery of some of the super secret Embraer 190ULR (Unbelievably Long Range). I'm just glad I was in J and slept for most of the flight.

    I did not know of the ULR, but it is good to know. I presume you must have taken it to the Space Station, given the distance involved. No wonder this EMB190ULR is secret, since it leaves to atmosphere behind but somehow conveys the misimpression taht it stayed at FL 370 or so. How was the space station. is it only Hilton or do they have Starwood too?

  3. I saw that reading on a 773 flight back from HKG recently and was sad I was not awake while we went around the world more than once and they still had lots of wine to serve!!!

    Many of us old timers still have difficulty converting imperial to metric... Remember the Gimli Glider!?

    Ah, yes. But they did land safely, as did this magic EMB, apparently.

    Just got off one of the normal Embraers. Must say Brazilian men must be short because it's darn near impossible to stand upright in the front loo!
