Funny he should post right above me..but the only one I've sent a pic to on here is at all is TWFirst.....he can vouch for my looks...or lack there of...but hardly anything sinister (sorry guys...). UAL747..is that porn squad or pom squad?...they look remarkably similair when you breeze through the ...Jump to post
Actually, <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym> was not that impressed with the EMB's. Possibly, someone knows specifically why? I think it's the cabin size they objected to (three abreast up front). I think they are interested in the BBD C-Series...but it will be on the market a co...Jump to post
No, that's not entirerly true...<acronym title="Horizon Air (USA)">QX</acronym> changed two options because they had more routes applicable for the 400 instead of the 700 in the delivery period where their obligation to purchase is in force. The 700's will still likely increase in number as longer h...Jump to post
Oh..come on...that's exactly what I was doing (see the little smiley face??).
And your always telling me to lighten up? I sense you need a severe happy hour.
I'd actually buy you a beer if you were in Houston...(Shiner Bock cures everything...)
Have an exponentially happy day.
Because Boeing had competing products--and none of the MDD products delivered any return for the investment. The <acronym title="Air Madagascar">MD</acronym>-95 was kept because unions would have objected to the sale if the line was discontinued--effectively delaying the consolidation for up to a ye...Jump to post
Gig...as you are aware, Houston now has the third largest gay population in United States...it's not a closeted town by any means. I imagine rural anywhere (including Texas) would not be the endearing part.... Huge 'theme' in life? Oh dear God, let's hope not! My interests and pursuits far exceed wh...Jump to post
Hmmmm...I guess I have a very different view. My homosexuality is only a small component of what makes me who I am. It does not define me in any sense but sexually. I choose my stores, restaurants, clubs, etc. based on which one I find appealing--not because they have a rainbow flag hanging out fron...Jump to post
No commercial aircraft will have a V-tail. Both Boeing and Airbus have nixed the idea because of rain/snow accumulation...(and associated corrosion...). Other than a minute amount of passenger comfort--widening the aircraft 'significantly' does nothing more than make it weigh more (short haul is not...Jump to post
Yeah, Dtwclipper...that's fine until the first little neighbor boy claims you leered at him or touched him---it's not an uncommon form of harrassement. I've got friends who moved right back into the city center after they got tired of having shit thrown in their pool on a weekly basis. You'll enjoy ...Jump to post
Excellent. It will only make the 7e7 a stronger aircraft. And further the A330 program.
Competition is excellent for both the customer and the consumer.
I've had plenty of cats....all declawed...never seemed to both them at all after a day or so... Not sure what all the fuss is about. Likely, you may need to find a more reputable vet---I've never had one refuse to do it, either. The hardest part was actually keepin the cats from being too active aft...Jump to post
Both of mine are declawed. They were in and out of the vet in about two hours. They have a new process that actually glues the skin back together after the nails have been removed---no painful stitches. Both animals were perfectly fine the next day--neither has exhibited any signs of discomfort or p...Jump to post
However, GECAS has not submitted any tenders for outside financing--which would be required (I just searched). How serious can they be? A paid LOI can be move to any product since it does not designate an actual production line position of a particular aircraft. You're right in that it may go throug...Jump to post
M5..hands down..not the prettiest face...but will be the meanest SOB on the road! Taking mine in Silver or Black (which ever comes in first). Of course, that's 10 months from now at the earliest...

Actually, <acronym title="European Regions Airlines (Spain)">EA</acronym> <acronym title="Continental Airlines (USA)">CO</acronym> <acronym title="Alaska Airlines (USA)">AS</acronym> is correct. <acronym title="TWA Transworld Airlines (USA)">TW</acronym> had not turned a true operating profit in ove...Jump to post
SQ is a financial and marketing leader, not a technical one. There delay is based on no comparable aircraft in competition for which to receive competing bids. If they were technically savy,they would not have flip-flopped on the initial 340's---or purchased the DC-10 to begin with. Or, for that mat...Jump to post
The EMB170 was marketed as a regional jet during it's inception and preliminary design--that has not changed. While a bit roomier than the current competition---it is also more costly (AVITAS has the preliminary operting costs as being somewhat higher than the CRJ700)--albeit it a very immature prod...Jump to post
Well...any of the premium lines are basically 'God's Waiting Rooms' for a lot of elderly. At Crystal, it's not so much the old folks...it's the damn wheelchairs that bothered me. Seabourn the crowd is younger and more active...but I think it has more to do with the design of the ship (not so handica...Jump to post
Actually, of the popular lines, two of you have hit the nail on the head: Cunard and Seabourn I have sailed on Cunard about a dozen times (once on QM2)...Seabourne three times. Crystal Cruises is right up there as well. The mass market Carnival, <acronym title="Newcastle - Woolsington (NCL / EGNT), ...Jump to post
Hubs still have to rely on lots of O&D traffic to supplement connections.
Kansas City has neglible traffic when compared to other, even moderate, focus cities.
History has proven it has been financial suicide for carriers to set up a hub there.....
Wasn't it UAL747 that spent ten minutes extolling the virtues of his long, luxurious eyelashes???? And then went on about this body hair in minute detail????

Eric Bana has the inside track....according to the ultra accurate Inside Hollywood (!).
Hugh Jackman was approached...and declined when he was told of the exclusivity clause that would prevent him from continuing in any other serials (X-Men, I guess...).
For 2005, Mini will offer the supercharging kit $4K as a delear installed (and warranteed option. (it adds 45 horses to the Cooper S...which makes it one fast little car).

FT is right. D'long Germany..owners of the programme..filed for bankruptcy protection last month. When asked if they had any intention of asking for outside cooperation, BBD was told a firm NO.

There was some overexaggeration that meals were taking three hours to order, prepare and delivery---which has got to be a mistake unless the order was totally forgotten (could happen--a lot is computerized).

No offense, but you can find an ugly picture of just about anybody...and the zoom lens doesn't really help! America's favorite pastime---elevating and tearing down celebrities. Oh well!
