Re: SMF Roaring Out of the Gate in 2018

I typically am not one to get into these, "We deserve new service!" No you don't because blah, blah, blah..." types of discussions. I know my own home airport (SAN) has repeatedly proved the naysayers wrong over the past five years or so. With regards to SMF-NYC, I wouldn't be surpris...

Re: BA drops Tehran from 23 September 2018

The only people on their knees are the innocent people of Iran, who are now stockpiling food if they're lucky and starving on the streets if they're not. That includes my own brothers and sisters so excuse me for taking personal f---ing offence at your nonsense. Sorry about your brothers and sister...

Re: BA drops Tehran from 23 September 2018

Great news. Shows sanctions are working. The west must continue to apply severe pressure to force the theocratic government to its knees and usher in the great Persian country that is modern and secular. The only people on their knees are the innocent people of Iran, who are now stockpiling food if...

Local press catching on to the incredible growth at SMF. And for the first time that I am aware of, officials claim the airport expects to serve over 12,000,000 passengers in 2018. Here's the link:

Re: SMF Roaring Out of the Gate in 2018

As noted by Dolphin above, SMF had a record month for pax with 1,102,047 in July. A look inside the numbers reveals that for the first time ever, SMF enjoyed three consecutive months of over 1 million passengers served for a three-month total of 3,243,063. Note that until this year, SMF hadn't serve...

Re: SMF Roaring Out of the Gate in 2018

Increasingly, I think cities need to completely reevaluate these huge expenditures on this type of public transportation. When a trip by car, door-to-door, takes 25 min, and that same trip using some combination of walking, bus, and finally, light rail, takes 90 minutes, no one is going to choose th...

Re: Iran Sanctions and New EU statment

Rise up against what? If Israel has some nukes who is the USA to say Iran cant have some either? America can and will say who can have nukes in the ME. Now that the Buffoon-in-Chief Obama is gone, the world can rest more peacefully knowing that Iran will never have an operational nuke. Simple as th...

Re: Iran Sanctions and New EU statment

Worked beautifully with the Germans. More thanks going to the Brits there than the US IMHO. And Germany had a proto democracy going before Hitler, the required for democracy strong middle class ... ... and a long standing solution to religious faction strife. Really a stupid statement.

Re: Iran Sanctions and New EU statment

The US has made these mistakes before, several times. Why is it still continuing to make them ? I don't think you understand me. When I say bombing, I mean obliterating. You can not force democracy on people through the barrel of a gun. Has never worked and never will. Worked beautifully with the G...

Re: Iran Sanctions and New EU statment

I heard a rumour recently that Trump was open to having a meeting with Rouhani, or did this fall by the wayside after Trump's capital letter twitter rant a few weeks back. Trump did say he was open to meeting with Rouhani. Or anyone for that matter. But Rouhani quickly responded saying that would n...
