How do flight taxes work from USA to Europe and why do they change depending on location? by nokichan Q: How do flight taxes work from USA to Europe and why do they change depending on location? For example, most flights have around $200 taxes on them, but some have up to $400. Why? Is this changeable? Also, is it possible to find a summer flight from USA to Europe for under $800 from a legitimate source?

A: Some taxes are imposed by the airport operator-- and as such they will very from airport to airport.. Others however are national taxes and are the same regardless of where (within the same country) you depart. With international tickets you also have to remember that there are two sets of taxes: DEPARTURE as well as ARRIVAL taxes.. For example, on a UK-USA ticket, the UK government imposes departure taxes as well as taxes set by the UK airport operator. The US government also imposes taxes on all passengers arriving into the US to help offset the costs of Immigration, Agriculture and Customs handling.. Remember that ticket taxes are not set nor controlled by the airlines-- they are set by the government, local taxing authority and/or airport operator- and it falls to the airlines to collect them on behalf of the government and remit them accordingly... Only fees (such as fuel surcharges) and the like are airline controlled.

Does the Flight Management Computer provide autopilot inputs? by checkmate444 Q: In commercial aircraft that are equipped with a Flight Management Computer (FMC) are flight guidance inputs transferred to the auto-pilot? I have also seen a similar instrument reffered to as a MCDU (Management Control Disply Unit) and it occupies the same space on the control pedestal as the FMC. I know that these instruments provide and calculate information on ETA's fuel management, flight planning etc. But does it actually provide command to the autopilot? And if so, can an entire course be planned and be used to command the AP? How does the Pilot know when various waypoints have been reached or other criteria have been met? I may have confused the FMC and MCDU.

A: The FMC (also called FMS - Flight Management System in some installations) is generally a remotely mounted computer, located in the avionics bay along with the radio receiver/transmitter units, TCAS, EGPWS, etc. The MCDU is the actual display screen and keyboard that you see in the flight deck. It's just a "dumb" control panel for the FMC. The radios work the same way; controllers/displays in the flight deck, actual radios in the avionics bay. The FMC sends guidance commands to the flight director, which drives the autopilot. Pilots monitor progress by viewing information displayed on the multi-function display (MFD). It's usually set to display a moving map that can be configured to show flight plan waypoints, high or low navigation aids, airports, airways, etc.

What good flight stops are there on the way to Australia? by mozb7 Q: I inquired online about a flight to perth and found a stop in singapore which is attractive. Are there are destinations that are cheap to also stop at and enjoyable for a few days perhaps when booking a multi stop flight? For example I added bejing before singapore and noticed my flight cost when up from 500 to 1100 pounds, so not there!

A: Singapore's great.I dont think there are other transit spots available.

What happens if you miss your flight and it is your fault? by Nikki Q: Say I wanted to book two separate flights to make it to my destination (meaning I would book one flight to one airport and when I arrived there I would have a layover until my next flight to my final destination left a couple of hours later). I would be booking this myself... possibly even two different airlines. If my first flight were delayed and I missed my second flight, the airline would see it as my fault. So what would happen in this situation? Would I have to buy a whole other ticket at full price on the spot to make it to my destination?

A: you can get on the next available flight if there is room, if there isn't any room then you better hope and pray that someone doesn't make it to that flight and then you get there spot.. sort of a waiting list type a thing... its happen to me before

How to shave in flight? Is shaving kit (razors, blades etc) allowed in international flights? by SKM Q: I need to shave my beard everyday since many of them turned gray. However while in international flight(which takes around 25 hours) how would I shave? Are blades, razors, shaving cream allowed in international flights? If not then how would one shave in flight?

A: Safety razors and less than 3 oz. cans of shaving foam are allowed and many airlines offer them in business and 1st class. Just go in the bathroom and shave, I usually bring along an electric razor on long flights, it's a lot easier than foam and razors in a cramped airplane bathroom. Electric and safety razors are not prohibited and are perfectly fine to bring onto an airplane, at least in the US and Asia where I fly to and from frequently. http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/index.shtm

What are the flight attendants doing in the bathroom before take off and landing? by kturner Q: After just getting off a few flights not that long ago, I've been wondering a lot about flight attendants and what the job includes. Just about every flight before landing, I noticed flight attendants stepping into the bathroom for a short time and walking back out. It was only a few seconds so it wasn't to "go" to the bathroom, what are they doing in there to prepare for landing?

A: I am a flight attendant and if I am in the rest room it usually means I am straightning it up after a passenger left it a pig stye.

My flight with United Airlines is Cancelled. How do I change it so i can get home? by nobodyneedsneoprene Q: I checked online and my flight tomorrow is cancelled. I tried calling United Airlines Number and all I get is the same automated information saying my flight is cancelled. how do I get a hold of a person, or somehow change my flight. Or get a refund. I REALLY want to get home (LAX-PIT). Thanks people. You've all been a great help!

A: Talk to the ticket agent. They should be able to get you on a different flight.

How do flight flight simulators compare with the real thing in terms of functionality.? by zogizee Q: Let's say I am very familiar with the latest microsoft flight simulator or even X-Plane and happen to be on a flight where the pilots suffer an incident that hinders or impairs their ability to continue flying. Do you think with my knowledge of flight simulators I will be able to handle the plane and bring it to safety, that is, land at a nearby airport?

A: I doubt it. Flight simulators come mighty close to depicting the real thing, but they are developed to be operated by a keyboard, mouse and joystick with a single CRT/LCD display. The real thing is something different, it will take considerable time for you to familiarise yourself with the location and feel of the cockpit, realtime response of the aircraft and for the first time, adapting to the fact that you got just one chance to do it right. There is no reload option and the controlled collision with planet earth is the most difficult phase in flight. There is a chance, a remote chance, but then a competent flight attendent could probably have a better chance.

How much flight duty allowance does a flight steward/stewardess get in their pay package? by Varun Q: My brother recently got selected in Jet Airwarys as flight steward and he will be getting some flight duty allowance apart from his fixed salary component. I wanted to know how much flight allowance do these airlines pays to flight steward/stewardess? The best people to answer this would be someone who are in the airlines/travel industry.

A: at most US airlines, it's referred to as 'per diem', and negotiated by the unions. It generally differs if flying within the US or internationally, and usually amounts to around $2. per hour for the entire length of the trip.
