One of my friends was stuck in the subway for two hours! I was just up there a couple days ago — in bad weather — and there were massive delays into and out of Penn Station. The infrastructure problems in this country are without question. I mean just take Penn Station for example. Busiest train sta...Jump to post

Several years ago, my dad and I got fed up with Verizon being so expensive, so we drove to a local mall where all the major carriers have company owned stores. We did not like AT&T when I was in high school; I could be a mile from my house in school, and my phone was roaming. We briefly had Spri...Jump to post
30 isn't that old for a FedEx aircraft. Most of their DC-10's are older than that; N375FE is 47. But then you have carrier like ATN that have planes that ONLY do one round trip a day - ATN comes to mind...N605DL typically flies CVG-PHL early morning, and does the return run between 2200 and 0100 loc...Jump to post

This is a very sad day, and I hope that nobody is seriously injured or killed.

I live in NE Philadelphia, and if you’ve ever looked at FR24, you’d see that PHL is nearly at capacity as is with AA mainline and regional flights.
That said, I don’t see a major draw here for international passengers.

Worst for me has to be “The Hunt for Red October.” I totally get that you can’t capture the entire essence of a book in a two hour movie, but there is so much that happened in the book that isn’t even mentioned in the movie, it’s basically unwatchable for me.

Class at 6:15 ! Lunch at 9am ? Maybe the time zone plays a role there ? Also it seems that school was way too big.

So...I went to a large high school on the outskirts of Philadelphia. We had to scan in each morning and go through metal detectors. Homeroom started at 7:20.

If headwinds are a known issue, why aren’t aircraft taking on additional fuel?

El AL really needs to add PHL. Lakewood which is less than an hour away has the second largest Jewish population on the east coast. It includes over 60,000 Jewish people. The trek to PHL is much easier from Lakewood then too EWR or even JFK. It would easily be a money maker on a 787-8 or -9. Plus, ...Jump to post
As a PHL resident, taxpayer, and traveler, I welcome any improvements and carriers to the airport. We need to bring back the service to TLV — either LY or AA. We need to start service to the Far East and South America sooner rather than later. PHL and the surrounding areas lose money to NYC and DC b...Jump to post

Liberals think that no tax is a bad tax. They also love paternalism. Philadelphia’s soda tax is one example. A study has been conducted on the effectiveness of the tax.

I use an electric shaver a couple times a week; will shave more frequently when I find a job. Once a month or so when I get a haircut, I’ll get a shave too.
I’m pretty hairy and have thought about shaving the body hair, but the discomfort after and while it grows back puts me off.
The government is partially shut down and nobody seems to have noticed. It's been over a week now and no end is in sight. More remarkably, the shutdown occurred while one single party controlled both houses of Congress and the White House. Even weirder, it's the third one this year I think (althoug...Jump to post
