The Best Passenger Planes

This post is slightly different to any others I have created on here, but if you have read our about us section you will know that I like to learn about the tourism industry and that doesn’t stop at people and places.

Aviation has obviously played a huge part in the evolution of travel and over recent years whenever I have taken a flight I have noticed subtle differences. Whether that’s a long-haul flight’s entertainment or the food.

I am no expert when it comes to planes but I do find them interesting and want to learn more.

Concorde

Let’s start with perhaps the most iconic passenger plane from 1976, it could take you from the UK to New York was less than 4 hours and the price was sky high at £4,350 one-way!

Although popular for a long while the plane was expensive to run and when demand decreased after the fatal crash, was finally retired.

There are plenty of places you can view the Concorde, I went to MAN, not sure if it is still there but you can still see prototypes and production aircraft in many places across the UK.

Airbus A380

This double-decker plane has four engines and is the largest PAX airliner. The upper deck is as long as the fuselage and holds 330 passengers. The first flight was in 2005 and the plane is mainly used by Emirate, Lufthansa, and Singapore Airlines

Boeing 747

The Boeing 747 was produced in February 1969 and cost $24, million to create. On average the plane will hold 366 passengers and flies at 40 knots.

Boeing 787

The first flight was in December 2009 and the plane holds 359 passengers. Flying at 488 knots this plane costs $224, million to build.

 

Airbus A350

On first glance, you may think this is a Boeing 787 and that’s a simple mistake to make as they have many similarities. However, the A350 has been designed to hold more passengers and offers wider windows to take in the scenery.

 

 

Organic Shop Hair Collection

I have been using Organic Shop, more specifically the coconut and shea scented products. The packaging is nice and simple providing information on the ingredients. According to the label, the products are made from natural materials, which is appealing to many people at the moment. The products are aimed at softening and reviving the hair.

Here are the products I have been using and a little info about each one:

Organic Shop, Hair Mask

The product smells lovely, but I wasn’t sure whether to use before or after the shampoo and conditioner, and this isn’t indicated on the packaging, I would have asked someone but this didn’t occur to me until I was in the shower! Therefore, I went with before.

The hair mask made my hair silky smooth and it felt like I had placed conditioner all over my hair, and it was a shame to have to then put the shampoo on. The next time I placed the product on after shampoo and conditioner, which  I found to be better as my hair gets very knotty when wet so it wasn’t easier to brush. The best thing about this product is that my hair was greasy a day later, unlike when you place conditioner all over the hair – which is why I just place it on the ends.

Overall, I think this is a good product and I would use it again.

Organic Shop, Shampoo

I found the pump didn’t allow enough shampoo to come out, as my hair is quite long I find a squeeze bottle simpler. The smell of this shampoo was very nice, but I do like a good coconut scent!

I always shampoo twice and which seems to stop greasiness for up to two days, this shampoo did exactly this.

Organic Shop, Conditioner

Now, I really do like the scent of these products but for me, the conditioner just didn’t do what I needed it too. As I mentioned earlier my hair gets very, knotty and I need conditioner to make it smooth and easy to brush. Unfortunately, the conditioner didn’t do this for me and I had to use another conditioner I had lying around. The key here is to use the hair mask last which did leave my hair smooth and feeling silky.
