I still believe the MRJ is prefect for HA to replace the 717. It's deliberately designed to have a much shorter range than the A220 and E2 so on paper it'd be way more efficient on interisland routes. Since Mitsubishi redesigned the hold, does anyone know of it can carry an adequate amount of surfbo...Jump to post
Not in some way compensating college athletes for the buckets of money that they bring their universities. If I'm an all-star college football player who brings my University millions of dollars I shouldn't be hung out to dry if I get injured to the degree that I'm unable to play professionally.

I think a 787 MAX family would look like this: 788MAX: essentially moving from a dedicated model to a simple shrink of todays 789 and some modifications to reduce weight to make the aircraft more efficient 789MAX: easy to handle aerodynamic enhancements and refinements (also on other members of the ...Jump to post
You're all assuming there is only one president around 2050 ! The current U.S.A. could've broken up into two or more separate countries by then, one with what are predominantly current southern states, their president being Ivanka Trump. The other being made up of the rest of the current U.S.A. the...Jump to post
Since we're on the topic, what do y'all think about nations serving and carrying out the death penalty to foreign nationals?

Against Saints: Saints win. Mahomes is on fire but rookie quarterbacks don't have the best SB record (Nick Foles notwithstanding).

I'd love to see the Chiefs repping the AFC this year. We need to get past the usual Patriots show. My prediction if the Chiefs make it to the big game: Against Saints: Saints win.

People really think the US military doesn't know how to defend themselves. Planes can be refueled and ships come with defense countermeasures that are both active and passive. I knew a guy in college that manned these systems on a USN destroyer and he said they do work. Besides, topedos are really h...Jump to post
Ive worked outside for hours on end for a job I had in college. Preventative care as Doc suggested is the best I'm very fair skinned and had to get SPF100 after learning the hard way.

There are still some more domestic nonstop routes that could be added by UA out of IAH such as IAH-BIS, IAH-BUF, IAH-BUR, IAH-CID, IAH-FAR, IAH-FWA, IAH-FAT, IAH-MSN, IAH-MLI, IAH-MYR, IAH-PIA, IAH-ROC, IAH-SRQ, IAH-FSD, IAH-SBN, and IAH-TVC.

Slightly OT, when I worked for TK it made for some awkward conversations and puzzled looks when i would tell people that theyd fly into IST and make their connection on another continent (SAW). So Istanbul with IST/SAW is in the same category with Paris for having 2 airports with hubs for the same a...Jump to post
Would ATC conversations use the Reach call sign or is that just for the public? Youd think that all military planes, especially AFO be totally invisible for flight trackers.
They shouldve also flown under the cover of darkness above all of the landmass on the east side of the Atlantic to prevent it.
Since chemical and biological weapons are all but banned and dismantled by all nations that use ICBMs, that leaves nuclear warheads as the destruction method of choice for these weapons. My question is (if a true nuclear weapon-free world is achieved) what would replace the nuclear warhead? Since th...Jump to post
As much as I would love to see a 789/J(ER), I dont think it will happen (although a 787-10ER has some chance IMO). ANZ is in a unique position geographically.

I can't see any qualities that would make Mattis a desirable presidential candidate to anybody other than someone wanting to start a war. Or possibly just people who also crave iron fisted lovers.

'Absent elevation' may as well be 'absent gravity.' You outline a worthless comparison.

You chose us. We didn’t force you to speak our language. It’s the market of ideas at its finest. Yeah, but together, we could make a change.

I grew up with English as my native language. I dont view being an Anglophone as a privilege, just as a matter of circumstance.

Personally I think the death penalty should be expanded. A true three strikes and you are out. Rapist, child molesters, all great candidates for the death penalty.
