Re: Delta security officer 'viciously assaulted,' repeatedly beaten with his own radio at JFK

When is the no fly list coming? There needs to be a common database in there to weed these people out but question! If its a woman and she gets married, would she conceivably get around it by changing the name? That issue would be no different than if it was a gay couple. So you can get around it b...

Re: SQ reinstates SIN-EWR flights; set to operate SIN-New York 3x daily

Good move to resume EWR. The JFK flight is going to be about O/D on the U.S. end of things. EWR is all about connections especially to places in the eastern United States such as MCO, ATL, WAS, and BOS. I find it strange that SQ doesn't use the west coast for connections - e.g. SFO is over 1000 mil...
