I'm looking at possibly buying a used car to replace my battered Corolla. I ain't bought no used car before so I don't even know what my questions are.

Gruden was a great coach but this is just very poor judgment - it makes zero sense to talk about people in racial terms that way, especially when so many colleagues are of that race.

Yes, there are different standards, it's all down to the number and amount of detergents in the gas. To be licensed as "Top Tier" the gas has to meet these standards which CITGO ...Jump to post
AA has tried to build a hub there a couple of times, each time drawing it back down. I agree that logically it should be able to support more than it does, but it doesn't seem to be the case.Jump to post
Samsung 980 pro or WD SN 850, you really can't go wrong with either of them.

Streaming AA Entertainment is not available on Widebodies with Panasonic Internet. They have seatback video screens to watch movies and TV shows
Is this because they took out the PTVs on some of the narrowbodies, which virtually no one uses anymore, add weight, were bought before everyone could use their own devices gate to gate, and before personal devices were as powerful as they are today? Or is this because they are harmonizing the 738s...Jump to post
