Apr 24 '16 at 15:23 comment added orique The departure path for BCN runway 25L requires a prompt turn to the left for environmental reasons. Maybe this was the reason for the "brutal" takeoff.

Aug 17 '15 at 14:59 comment added motoDrizzt Just wanted to point out a thing: while passengers around me noticed the more aggressive style of piloting, it was not something like the pilot doing tonneau or Immelmans during landing or such. I did notice a few minor things, nothing really radical.
Aug 17 '15 at 14:56 comment added motoDrizzt Thx, Jon. Where/were is a mistake I make too often, and for the rest...I always like to be corrected, so I can improve :-)

Aug 17 '15 at 13:10 comment added Simon Different carries may also have different SOPs, e.g. minimise taxi time; and ops schedules, e.g. quicker turnarounds so less time on ground.
Aug 17 '15 at 13:07 comment added Jay Carr @JanHudec Remember, I don't think this would explain all the differences the OP is describing (weather, terrain and traffic patterns clearly make more sense.) But different carriers do train differently, so that may contribute just a bit.
Aug 17 '15 at 13:06 comment added Jay Carr @JanHudec lol, on other questions and in the chat room, that's where I heard those comments. Casey has talked about training in the chat room on a few occasions. And there's an answer around here somewhere where Terry talks about how different carriers would have him use different procedures to do a take off in the 747-200 he flew. Granted, he had learned somewhere else so he ignore the procedures he didn't like...but I think a new guy wouldn't have known the difference.
Aug 17 '15 at 13:04 comment added Jan Hudec @JayCarr, hm, why don't I see those comments...
Aug 17 '15 at 13:03 comment added Jay Carr @JanHudec That might explain a lot, but it might not explain everything. Terry and casey (both were ATP, for anyone who may not know) have both commented that different carrier train their pilots differently, and that airlines have different procedures for aircraft maneuvers at times. Granted, I was under the impression that it was mostly for little things, so I doubt that would fully explain all the differences between the flights mentioned.
Aug 17 '15 at 12:56 comment added Jan Hudec Did you fly another airline on the same route or a different one.
Aug 17 '15 at 12:34 comment added motoDrizzt P.S. notice that, as I'm not an English native, I had difficulties to post a question in a good format for the site. Please anybody feel free to edit it for improvements, but the note about this is not a criticism against pilots has to remain. Thx
