plane, the controller would even joke over the radio and say be careful not to overtake him, but follow so and so on runway X. If I hit tubulence, would quickly level off and back off the throttle, the plane would jump all over the place but would only last a few seconds. Not a good time to be drinking a hot cup of coffee. I feel that tubulence causing both engines and the vertical fin to fall off is pure nonsense, even on a French built A300, that plane has got to be pure crap, Airbus for years is trying to put a big dent in both Douglas and Boeing sales. Last year I saw an A300 on my itinerary, I quickly called the airlines and had my schedule changed with more emphasis on the carrier (why can't they call it an airplane?) then the route. I may be considered suicidal as a CH sufferer, but getting fried to death in a poorly designed plane is not my idea of a way to go.
We kept on hearing about the troubled airlines, the competition, but in the last 40 years is just about the only way left to travel. I view your letter Jonny from American as pure bullshit. Raising fares a couple of bucks has never deterred flight revenues. Even the Comet was grounded with not nearly the problems of the A300 and they wonder why the consumer no longer trusts large corporations.
