This will happen when there is a very large image posted in the thread that is displaying on that page of posts.

The blocking can also be due to the noxious ads that pops up on FT regularly. Several users reported that their work now blocked FT due specifically to that. More info are in the technical support and feedback forum.

Suggestion over here that ISPs may be starting to block FT due to the malicious / edgy ad content.

Advertisements between posts
 
I have noticed that Flyertalk now places advertisements between posts, rather than beside posts, which I find very intrusive (presumably this is the intention?). (Previously lack of another immediate post meant that you had got to the last post on the page.)

While I agree that the ads between posts is disconcerting, I expect to become accustomed to it, and it does solve the problem of the ads obscuring useful text and inappropriately widening the window.

One workaround, if the interspersed ads really annoy you, is to click the Go Advanced button for posting new content. The new presentation does not have the interspersed ads. It does have the posts in newest-first order, which makes me think that the remedy is worse than the malady.

Me too. Really annoying - and it takes its sweet time loading, blocking the page for 10+ seconds before it's possible to dismiss it.

+1

Safari user also. I have disabled pop-up ads and never see them anywhere. This Choice ad continues though. It blocks the page for a long time while it loads (so slowly) and then it can't be closed for a couple more seconds. It's too frustrating so I plan to stay away from FT except when I absolutely need info.

You should not see this ad at all unless you fail to log into FT.

You can't get logged in before this ad appears.

Make sure to click "remember me" and you'll stay logged in. Unless your browser is set to clear cookies. No way around that.

Can we please ditch or relocate the Choice Hotels pop up? It is REALLY annoying and has the opposite of the intended effect. It has made FT almost unusable on my iPad.

Thx.

This ad is a big problem for me too. When I browse FT from my work computer I am always logged out, so I see it over and over, delaying me 15 seconds each time. It makes the site unusable.
