I honestly have no clue how Interjet is still flying. But then again in a country plagued with corruption somehow I am not surprised.Jump to post
It would be logical for Saudi Arabia to attempt to develop a deterrent to counter Iran, should Iran attempt to develop nuclear weapons. Both regimes seem to be driven by contrary flavours of religious mania, so neither would be trustworthy stewards of a nuclear bomb. It will be interesting to see h...Jump to post
I love FLL, but whoever thinks people outside the US and Canada and the South Florida expats see FLL as a gateway to Miami are delirious. NOBODY knows FLL, DY flew to all these cities because people were looking for a buck. Eventually I could see DY wanted MIA and the LGW was an experiment to see wh...Jump to post
It has been determined by President Trump and his advisors that this was an attack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx3oLZryzuo He was pulled up on the assertion with a request for clarification. I think it's just a bit too early to rush to say it was an attack. It appears to have been a deadly acc...Jump to post
That said, these particular protests seemed to mostly be organised by rather nasty far right groups, the 'Trumpers' of Europe, and they mostly seem to go against the wearing of masks, which is completely idiotic and selfish, given how much benefit masks bring for the relative minimal discomfort.

How could this happen in a country like Germany? They are supposed to be civilized. Its easy to judge, but when you may lose your job, your savings, your house, its a bit harsh to not be empathetic. And yes I know human life over monetary value but unfortunately western civilization is 100% materia...Jump to post
Historically having sexual encounters with minors, equates power and an ego boost for powerful people.

So out of touch with reality if some people are thinking that the majority are travelling because of $600 from the Government. This isn’t the 90s anymore.

Just a reminder that the middle seat is 22 inches and you still have people front and back. Social distance in a commercial airplane is an oxymoron in my opinion..

NK doesn’t get love in this board because they are a ULCC, but they have been steadily growing and have been an important game changer of aviation in the USA. They were the first ULCC in the USA, and have done a 360 job in regards to their public image.Jump to post
I never quite understood what U.S. airline fascination is with staffing stations inhouse when globally the norm is to use contract vendors. Heck some large airlines even contract out handling in their hubs to vendors. Seems so obvious that using a vendor makes sense for JetBlue across most of their...Jump to post

Will be interesting to see what the FAA does, if anything. But I'll wait for them to look at all the facts.
