When Dave Alden says most pilots are reluctant to bank more than 30 
degrees because of passenger comfort, he's probably refering to US 
airlines.  I've flown on several non-US carriers, especially those south 
of the US border, and those boys really like to throw those planes 
around; perfectly safely of course but they don't seem to be restrained 
by namby-pamby considerations like passenger comfort or well-being.  They 
just like to fly!  Less chance of the airline being sued by some 
over-sensitive passenger perhaps?
