As a pilot myself landing in a strong cross wind is one of the scariest parts of flying. Especially with passengers and a big airplane like the 777. Glad to hear that the planes made it safely and there was no accidents.

I remember, there is one Garuda Indonesia's young pilot who mocked everyone who is afraid of cross wind landing. He boasted that it is a piece of cake thrill ride.

He doesn't realize that it can't be done easily with Boeing 777. (His rating currently for Airbus A330-200).

I'm not a qualified pilot or such but my opinion every landing is a challenge. You throw in a cross wind landing and it's even more of a challenge.
I don't understand how a pilot can make such a statement. I'm guessing his landed at the now closed HKG Kai Tak airport?

He was born in 1987, so he was still in his primary school years when Kai Tak airport was closed, still a toddler when Boeing 777 made its first flight, and was still in junior high school when Boeing 777-300ER was launched.

Here's the part of EK's article from Wikipedia

Quote:
In 2000, however, the carrier briefly considered joining Star Alliance, but opted to remain independent of the three alliances. The reason for this was later revealed by senior vice-president of the airline's commercial operations worldwide that, "Your ability to react in the marketplace is hindered because you need a consensus from your alliance partners."
