The nausea express….
Hundreds of passengers on the inaugural trip of the world’s highest railway needed oxygen to ward off altitude sickness.

Travellers stumbled off the train yesterday in the Tibetan capital Lhasa after enduring a two-day journey from Beijing in China.

Many had used oxygen tubes, even in the pressurised cabins. In the cheaper cabins, older travellers were lying down, children were crying and some were sick in the bathrooms.

AER-ENGINE EXPO 2006
Airbus

Everyone has had their say on Airbus recently, be it good news regarding the bullish A319/20 and the possible resurgence of the A318 with the PW6000 engine coming into service, or bad news regarding the A380 delays and the withdrawal of the A350 (not to mention the EADS management issue). There is also the A340 which, although a great aircraft, just does not match up to the 777. Airlines running A340 aircraft such as Virgin Atlantic probably know that they have made the wrong choice. Back to the A380, there are rumblings in the US about just who is going to pay for airport upgrades to cater for the giant, with John Mica, chairman of the House of Representatives’ aviation subcommittee, claiming that it would cost as much as $1 bn to refit 18 airports to handle the 550-seat A380. However, it could well be the case that Mica inflated estimates by quite some margin.

BOEING’S NEW JET BEATS THE BOUNCE
Dipesh Gadher
Transport Correspondent

TIME to put away the sick bag. Boeing is designing a new passenger jet aimed at countering the effects of turbulence.
The 787 Dreamliner, which is expected to enter service in 2008, will have sensors that detect strong gusts of wind and automatically adjust the movement of the aircraft to prevent it from being buffeted around.

REAL-TIME CABIN ENVIRONMENT DECONTAMINATION STUDIED
Belmont, MA-based Kronos Advanced Technologies was named a partner in FAA’s Airliner Cabin Environment Research project, formed to study cabin air quality and chemical and biological incidents in airliners (unintentional or due to deliberate terrorist action). Kronos will provide expertise on real-time decontamination, based on its development of an air movement and purification system that utilizes high voltage electronics and electrodes to silently move and clean air without any moving parts. Auburn University heads the research program and partners include Boeing, GE, the Air Force and American universities.
