    Great shots, Pierre, and welcome!

    Great stuff, Pierre, and welcome. Pretty sure that's our first trip report from a Fokker. :)
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Thanks guys, highly appreciated :)

    moose135: You could choose the croissant or some other sweet bread with chocolate.
    On the return flight they served sweet or salt cookies ;)
