Now that AA is starting ORD-DEL is there any chance Air India will dump the one-stop for a non-stop?

How about the Bristol Brabazon? Was it an engineering or marketing failure. Or simply a victim of political buggery? Not a jetliner I know, but an airliner that merits some mention. I think it was rather graceful looking.

Yes, the Texans are a proud lot. It is good to be proud of ones state and roots but the Texans I've come in contact with at work somehow equate their pride with being better than other states and that's where I disagree.
