You are shifting the goal post. Nonsense. He wrote quite clearly that she should be put on trial and continued that as a result of that trial she should be executed. Now I agree that it is a pretty silly thing to say, but he is not advocating that anyone take the law into their own hands. No goal p...Jump to post
Those anti-coup people shouting Allahuakhbar are as freightening as tanks on the Bosphorus bridges. It would be a mistake to conclude that all who were against the coup are in favour of Erdoğan. For example, Hişyar Özsoy, an MP for the pro-Kurdish HD party stated that although there are problems in...Jump to post
I was thinking about McCain and Obama and the questions around them. Those answers should be absolute. Thank you for your reply.

How about reading the second part of this "lawmaker"'s tweet? Reading is one of my capabilities, thank you, along with comprehension.

allow someone who has been a citizen of the US for 35 years to hold the office.

@HillaryClinton You should be tried for treason, murder, and crimes against the US Constitution… I don't agree with Folk's call but since when is calling for someone to be placed on trial a call for murder?

Well it appears that the coup has turned into a putsch. Erdoğan is reported to still be in control. Numerous arrests have been made, including 59 colonels, a rear admiral and 5 generals.

Congrats on being able to fly the inaugural CS1 flight. There's noting like being on a fresh, new aircraft with an unstained toilet.
How good of LX to provide a scale model as a souvenir for the passengers.
The problem boils down to not necessarily to Islam as a whole, but to Sharia. Shariah is not a body of law to trot out when you feel like condemning someone or something. Shariah is not about stoning people or chopping off hands, even if in some countries these things might happen. Shariah is much ...Jump to post
What can I say? It only seems to get better. The presentation of the food is superb. The wines excellent. The cabin understated. That certainly is a top product.

Gays should be/could be perfect republicans ... -Educated ... But republicans don't want to make the tent a little bigger to include them. Doesn't make sense to me. Don't make the mistake of equating "educated" with "intelligent". ;) But more seriously, it is not surprising that...Jump to post
The same applies to any airline who wins the award. EK has too many inconsistencies across the board to warrant 'airline of the year'. Considering a few years ago they barely made it to the top 10, it's surprising. I am not surprised at all. Remember that the Airline of the Year Award is not based ...Jump to post
This is dreadful but some things puzzle me. News reports say that the driver was firing at people as he swerved through the crowds, trying to hit as many as possible.

When you live in a tolerant society, It is funny that you should mention tolerance given your signature is "How to brainwash a liberal? Give him an enema."

Dress code should be applied only for J and F class passengers, I don't see why it should matter what I choose to wear into the cabin.

Itinerary: That sure is some detour. Still, we aviation enthusiasts fully understand. :) Economy passengers were called upon first, and I wondered since I was the only passenger may be the airline didn't care?

Something tells me Emirates will recieve a 5 star rating within the next 5 years, that is unless they start to decline in service.

Great trip review. Oman Air offer a superb business class product that almost equals the first class offered by other airlines. For example, the food being individually served and not on a tray.

Great report. I do like seeing descriptions of flights with lesser known carriers. The on-board service looks quite good for such a short hop and having a cheerful and welcoming crew always helps. Fantastic scenery along the way.
Thanks for sharing.

Hawaiian will probably be the last operator of the 717 other than Delta. That'll disappoint Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas (QF).

No that doesn't sound too good. But how much advance notice was given.
Secondly, for business travellers the lack of twice daily flights would mean at least one night away, which might not be convenient.

All this talk of the UK being punished is just that, talk. No one is actually punishing the UK or has any desire to do so because it would simply make matters worse for all sides.

Well this sure is the way to travel. The on-board apartment offers plenty of space to stretch out. The in-flight meals look appealing, well-presented without having too much on the plate.

Boris Johnson has reaffirmed that "there is no rush" and even goes so far as saying that the leave vote was “not entirely overwhelming”.
