News / Warsaw Modlin Airport is finally moving [29]

Thats right the airport bus will go to Novy Dwor with new services from central.
A train station at modlin airport with skm trains running from central is planned within a year of the airport opening. There is already an rail siding to the airport so it just needs to be electrified and cleaned up. The problem that Modlin is facing is that it will be already overcrowded when it opens, it was built too small and will remind people of the dreadfull etudia terminal at okencie years ago.

This is a good article that shows how ryanair and wizzair do not really compete as they are both funded by indigo partners. Since then they have a few routes that they share but never to the same airport.

News / Warsaw Modlin Airport is finally moving [29]

ryanair wants to open up a massive base at modlin, but they seem to have a dodgy non compete agreement with wizz air (same investors) so i guess wizz air will be the main player here. Harry, there will be a bus to the railway station a few km down the road.

News / Poland now soft-pedalling ACTA signing [107]

Wow the dude from PO basically told the US to butt out, that poland and the US are sopoused to partners, this is an internal matter and the US should act more appropriately.

I feel that Polish people are very pragmatic but mildly apathetic at the same time. the whole concept of protesting just for the sake of protesting
is quite alien for them

Spot on but it seems that the winds of change are too blowing over poland i again, this apathy is not shared by the youth who are in their early 20s and under, However the late 20s generation are very materialistic and don't really care about politics or social change. Generaliastions i know but they mostly hold true.

sorry i meant after the fall of communism , people just sort of accepted the laisre faire american model. I was talking about contempory issues like the iraq war, corrupiton and health care etc I guess this is a natural process after fighting so long to get rid of communism.

News / Poland now soft-pedalling ACTA signing [107]

There were thousands of protesters in lublin of all places, this is turning into a big issue and is getting world wide coverage. It's interesting that poles hold the freedoms of the internet so dear., perhaps because society is so conservative and also older people have not learnt to protest about bread and butter issues but with something as new as the internet the youth are leading the way. I am proud of poland and its youth in there enthusiastic desire to agitate for change and standing up to power. The upcoming protest in warsaw this weekend should be huge!

USA, Canada / Getting a VISA to USA by a Polish person nowadays [339]

yes indeed, well put. Many polish politicians understandebly are still in the cold war mindset and view america as their benelovent saviour. In fact this is spread across the whole population, american culture is revered, there are queues to get into pizza hut. etc

UK, Ireland / Polish Doctor in UK discriminiated and bullied against gets millions. [28]

These english NHS idiots probably relized polish doctors are the amongst the best in the world and tried to get rid of her over cups of tea. Pathetic. !

A hospital trust has been ordered to pay nearly £4.5m in compensation to a doctor who was hounded out of her job after deciding to have a baby.

A Leeds tribunal found Dr Eva Michalak, now 53, suffered race and sex discrimination at Pontefract General Infirmary.

It said colleagues mounted a "concerted campaign" to bring her employment to an end while she was on maternity leave.

News / Polish hero pilot lands 767 without wheels. (Warsaw) [191]

As all new airplanes the 787 will have some teething problems but I think it'll end up being a great bird. If anyone might be tempted to rush things it'd be Airbus with the A350. Remember that when they announced the original A350 the industry specialists and major airlines worldwide lambasted the design as a big joke. It was basically a stretched A330 with new engines, no real technological improvements at all.

This is BS, the reason the original 350 design was cancelled was that airbus believed udgar hazy about the marketing dept power of the 787. Composites so far have failed their test in wheight reduction and cost reduction.. If airbus would have hanged toughed and made a 330 rewing/reengine they would have killed it in contrast to 787 delays. Instead even if they are using anothe composite technique to layer plastic to create an airframe and yes like the 787 there will be delays but not just as ridicuoulous as the boeing, basically the 787 was the epitome of the incompetent mcdonald douglas management taking over boeing. and airlines like lot are payiing the price

sure poles will ***** about lot but they are still proud of their airline, eurolot is v slowly introducing cheap domestic fares and overall the carrier is progressing, as the pprune forums attest other pilots are v impressed with wrona's skills.

Whatever I say PWEI and his pack will always be in opposition .

Nothing to do with pwei and you being attacked, everything to do with you not knowing what you are talking about.

News / Polish hero pilot lands 767 without wheels. (Warsaw) [191]

There's a grim echo of one of the previous crashes at Warsaw where they decided to land at Okecie rather than (the nearer) Modlin due to there being better support, but sadly didn't make it.

Actually the tragic story Lot flight 5055 was that they were refused landing by idiot military flight control at modlin even when their the plane was burning up.

@polmed

For me jumbo jet means a common name for large jet airliners . I didnt take this name out of nowhere but from the media which uses such term .

More proof you know nothing about aviation.

News / Polish hero pilot lands 767 without wheels. (Warsaw) [191]

Could it be that because of the lower melting point of the materials, the outcome of a wheels-up landing could be different? Could there be an increased chance of the fuselage catching fire?

Just try your two pence worth. I am interested in your thoughts about this.

Dosn't totally answer your question but worth a read inc the comments

hmm i would rather believe someone who says he is a pilot of a 767 and gives his expert 'opinion, rather than some idiot who thinks the smolensk report did not point to pilot error. polmed stop poluting this thread.
