RE: Shooting In Dallas Love Field -KDAL

While any homicides are unfortunate and it may be preferable to avoid a shooting where possible, it is interesting to see that attention is generally only given when an offender is shot. Rarely do we see comments about law enforcement officers being killed in the line of duty. Yet every year several...

RE: Hong Kong, Bali, Philippines With OZ F/J, CX F

Hi Benjahman. What a visual feast. At those contrasting food offerings! Looks like you had a great time throughout the journey. The Asiana offering appears to offer the best presentation while Cathay seems a bit hum-drum. Again the cabin service seems to be superior. <table border="0" align="CENTER"...

However, to those who can afford it, the cost is far less than chartering a private jet, let alone buying one. To charter a jet furnished to a similar level of comfort may cost anywhere between $9,000 a...
