  1. I think a pair of hair straighteners would do at this point.
  2. I'll elaborate. The broken website puts more pressure on the call centre staff, as people struggle to make bookings on it, and then call instead. I think the new website still has potential once the problems are ironed out.
  3. An advantage many airlines have. If they don't have a spare aircraft, it's easy and quick to charter one.
  4. It's not. A suitable vessel could be a months travel away. Plus crewing time, familiarisation, classification stuff. If a non barebone charter was seeked, then that limits options further. Plus potential union problems. Seems unlikely they'd kick up a stink given the situation, but I wouldn't put anything past them.
  5. The second linkspan is used for cruise ship tenders. But as has been said, is too small for anything else.
  6. Armorique was bow first in Roscoff this morning after being stern first in Plymouth last night.

    They're done automatically, but can be done manually if you really wanted to. http://ecolregs.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=67&lang=en http://ecolregs.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=66&Itemid=406&lang=en There's the most relevant rules.
  8. My understanding is it's bow thruster related (not confirmed).
  9. Armorique wasn't allowed entry by QHM due to the high winds. Pilot and tug required also due to the high winds.
  10. Yeah. It's odd, but I don't buy into the theory of brown envelopes etc. Perhaps I'm being naive though and don't want to believe it..
  11. Perhaps they dug and found no firm evidence of pressure? Maybe verbal only and the captain didn't want to admit it. No doubt that there was pressure, there always is. Just a thought.
  12. As well as the classification society.
  13. Sorry to dig up an older thread, but what are peoples overall conclusions on the new site?
