    Yeah, of course. Depends on what caused the incursion but that Emirates is involved again might encourage the ATSB to have a closer look. Emirates pilots who train here have a rep as party animals who, shall we say, enjoy the freedom of being away from prying eyes so there's a perception they're a bit loose with stuff like airmanship and rest periods.

    Mind you, Emirates have never had a fatal accident.

    More of a widely believed fact, tbh. QANTAS has never lost a jet but lost a bunch of prop-driven planes before the jet age.

    Upvote for recognising QANTAS as an acronym, incidentally.

    EDIT: Ah, right. Still think of them that way, though.

    Yeh, surprising number of people don't realise what QANTAS stands for. You'd think some ****s have never been to a quiz night.

    Crazy stuff. I remember being allowed to take off in a Cessna and thinking that the runway was waaay to far left before I'd even cleared the end of it. I declined the opportunity to land the damn thing.

    Haha. Surely if you're just looking for quality and not price, you'd be looking at the biggies - Singapore, Emirates etc etc?
