Having survived eight hours in an Air China SVO-PEK B773ER flight engulfed in a cloud of cabbage-fueled farts, I approve of this proposal.Jump to post
That would be difficult, however I've already figured out it's possible to bridge the Atlantic through Keflavik which is under the limit. Plenty of European destinations from Keflavik are also under the limit, however the American side of the pond is more tough. So far I only found Edmonton and Kan...Jump to post

Same can be said of the Armenian Genocide.

If any of your political candidates pushes Socialism seriously reconsider your voting choices. At least two of the Fraud Squad (AOC + 3) women in congress are placed and managed by the Socialist Democrats. We know that through out history Socialism always fails but if you are on the fence about it,...Jump to post
Ahh, just like Shanghai in the years following the CCP victory of 1949. History repeats itself, it probably won't be long before PLA tanks flood into HK.

Unless Trump can convince the American people that Iran constitute as much as a threat as Iraq supposedly did, then changes of an actual invasion of Iran are bleak. The cost in men & material needed to occupy Iran would be steep and divert American military assets away from where they are needed...Jump to post

The only way Saudi Arabia can become a booming tourist destination (akin to the UAE) is if they plan a city (probably along the Red Sea) that's meant exclusively for tourism. No one, except those with proper visas, can leave the city unless by flight to Riyadh or Jeddah to connect on a flight (unle...Jump to post
So this is basically a disgruntled and oblivious redneck that did not do his homework before going off buying airline tickets. A week before the wedding and he hasn't checked with the bride (or groom for that matter) when the actual ceremony takes place. Impressive.Jump to post

Re-open the 757 production line and recycle all existing 737 MAX into new parts. There, Boeing, I saved your company.Jump to post
Fokker 70 with (sadly) only 48 build. A wonderful little plane though.Jump to post
Really depends on the context. If I got the flight for free? Definitely. If I paid $3000+ for the ticket? No. Also was he going to pay cash/internet transaction right then and there, or was he going to wait for a while and hope the guy forgot about it? What difference does how much you spend for th...Jump to post
I'm not sure if I'd take $1500 in cash if someone offered it to me in an airplane. The transaction would be visible to everyone, and throughout the flight, I'd be paranoid knowing everyone who saw and heard the commotion would know I had $1500 in cash with me. I wouldn't be able to sleep on the fli...Jump to post

Denmark is odd. It has one big hub (CPH) which is all the way at the edge of the country near the Swedish border. Due to it's location it's inconvenient for anyone outside Copenhagen. You have to cross the city to get to the airport. The airports outside CPH are much smaller, BLL only having a frac...Jump to post
Boeing is a company in crisis. I hate to say it but their survival as a leading commercial aircraft manufacturer is in jeopardy. The drip drip of bad news is killing them. I was saying this for 20 years. While I have often defended Boeing here, truth is the company has been so poorly managed for th...Jump to post

This won't add to the technical discussion of the tragedy that was AF447, but I remember clearly - ten years ago, working as a paperboy at the age of 18, that early sunny morning delivering newspapers to the local neighbourhood, seeing the front covers displaying pictures of the Air France A330-200 ...Jump to post

Abortion is murder and only even remotely acceptable in case of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is threatened, and even then only early in the pregnancy. The Alabama law is a mistake.

Flying solo to communist countries, what is this - the 1950's? Apart from North Korea, Eritrea, Cuba, and (according to the Republican Party) Venezuela, there aren't really any nations left adhering to the Communist ideology as a means of running the state.
