As I recall there was time restrictions (1 week for SE) other than full Y.

Logo at the top of the certificate is interesting

"Our Lady of Loreto -- Patron Saint of Air Travel"

After googling this, it turns out there is a competing spirit as well: Saint Bona of Pisathe patron saint of pilots, airmen and flight attendants as per declaration of Pope Benedict XV on March 24, 1920

I scanned everything before either discarding them or using them in artwork or as wallpaper.

2006 AC 15 Music Album

Anyone have the list of the music albums that play on AC 16 from HKG to YYZ during the time of July 2006? Same year of World Cup played in Germany. Thanks

Hopefully TCA counts as AC for the purposes of this thread. I stumbled across this photo today, and says it was taken in 1943. Not exactly the Pearson of today!

Seems like yesterday, but it was almost 9 years ago.

It's the back wall of the business centre in the old LHR T3 joint AC/SK London Lounge.

I didn't spend much time in that lounge. My international travel only really took off after T2 was completed and the new MLL opened. I did spend enough time there, though, to really appreciate how much better the MLL is
