Handy tips for flying Airbus

Exactly. I put up a post about the Airbus and the very real safety concerns a lot of experienced pilots have about the aircraft.

"More than 20 American Airlines pilots asked to be transferred to Boeing aircraft, "although this meant months of retraining and loss of earnings." One pilot wrote that "he had refused to let any of his family take an A300 or A310 and had paid extra to take a circuitous route on holiday purely to avoid them."'
There's also a link there to a fascinating background piece on the Airbus and safety investigations into it.
