I can think of three major US tourist destinations with relatively little air service: Atlantic City, Myrtle Beach and Branson. Atlantic City's the easiest to explain; it's within easy driving distance of many large population centers, and for those visitors who do fly PHL is not far away. Myrtle Be...Jump to post
<i>And guess what? If you take a cab to EWR, the driver has the right to charge you double? You know why? He legally can't pick up passengers at EWR, where as he can at LGA and JFK.</i> The cab fare from NYC to EWR is meter + r/t tolls + $10. NYC taxis going to other destinations outside the city in...Jump to post
<i>All I know is that at one time they flew charters out of Boston Logan to Ilha do Sal. They thought that that Cape Verde Islands would make a great alternative beach destination for New Englanders. They still maintain an office in Boston, and maybe they'll continue with charters this winter. Who c...Jump to post
<i>Besides, it's quicker to travel to LGA and JFK, as well as less expensive. Plus, you can take the A train to JFK, or the M60 to LGA.</i> Until AirTrain opens, the A train option is very slow - those shuttle buses from Howard Beach are interminable. Not to mention the fact that if you're travellin...Jump to post
<b>As a Texan who often travels to Vermont, give me BDL over BOS every time. Right on the interstate, quick and easy trip. Beautiful area, as well.</b> <i>whynot travel to BTV (Burlington International Airport)?</i> BDL is closer for much of southern Vermont, although the expansion of service at MHT...Jump to post
<i>Another issue, is the Port Authority doesn't grant many slots for domestic flights out of JFK. JetBlue is an exception though. I'm not sure whether JetBlue has some sort of special deal, or they bribed the Port Authority.</i> JetBlue was able to get slots at JFK in return for providing reasonably...Jump to post
<i>There was even talks of, if I remember correctly, BDL generating enough high yield pax (CT and Western Mass are pretty rich) to warrant a non-stop to London, if only it weren't sandwiched between NYC and Boston.</i> I believe there actually <i>was</i> nonstop service between BDL and LHR in the ea...Jump to post

DUS-NRT/KIX (Japan Airlines)
Lufthansa once operated DUS-DFW-MEX. Do they still have the rights?
I heard Whitney is dying of Cocaine use and has lost so much weight that even treatment isnt helping her supposedly shes down to 90lbs, can any one confirm this, hope its not true
You hear all sort of celebrity rumors, I'd be surprised if 10% of them were even partially true.
<i>Im about 2-3 miles from ISP (just north of the airport) my house is right under the takeoff and landing pattern of runway 15R/33L.........PROSA, you should know the area......Im 3 blocks from the Ronkonkoma railroad station</i> I sure know the area ... you actually live 3 blocks from the Worst Pl...Jump to post
In 1991 or 1992 I was one of about ten passengers on an early-morning DL flight from BDL to CVG. I can't remember what type of equipment was used. At any rate, midway through the flight I got up and headed toward the lavatory at the rear of the cabin. On one of the last rows, a FA had folded up the ...Jump to post
Just stop calling her. Never return her phone calls. Make excusess, say there is another woman in the picture.
No way. That's a coward's way out. Much better to tell her that there's no point in continuing the relationship, it was nice when it lasted but it's better to move on, etc.
<i>So what can I do to dispose of her without being rude or mean?</i> Just tell her that the relationship isn't working and that you want to end it before things get any more serious. Be matter-of-fact and present your decision as a <i>fait accompli</i>, declining to participate if she wants to talk...Jump to post
<i>In a NBC news video there was an interesting theory. It was suggested that the idea of crashing an airliner into a city was a very old idea</i> Possibly the closest this ever came to happening before September 11 was on April 7, 1994, when about-to-be-fired FedEx flight engineer Auburn Calloway, ...Jump to post
One afternoon in late September, I was walking past a police precinct station in Manhattan. Walking behind me was a girl about eight or nine years of age, and a 40-ish man, presumably her father. The girl asked her father about all the sheets of paper that were taped to the front of the station hous...Jump to post
<i>In New York, 4 basic types (as in 1999): Crown Vic, Caprice, Venture and Odyssey/Oasis minivans; I always picked a minivan, all minivans had 5 seats only, the 3rd row was removed Is it still the same now?</i> Mostly just Crown Vics today. Most if not all of the Caprices are gone. There are some O...Jump to post

What's basically happened in the United States is that education really doesn't begin until the college level. The free public education that's universally available until age 18 or so is not very good in comparison to what's offered in most other developed countries. On the other hand, a much highe...Jump to post

<i>To all Delta fans: do you realize that the only reason Delta does this is to be anticompetitive? Look at the part that states that DL provides the fares for people! That is complete BS! If AirTran didn't offer this sale, DL wouldn't either.</i> Your point? What Delta did was not anticompetitive. ...Jump to post
How about Uzbekistan Airways? Really, this is no joke. About a year ago, I saw five of their FA's outside the Hotel Pennsylvania* in Manhattan waiting for a shuttle bus to JFK. All five of them were in their middle to late twenties and all of them were real knockouts. Nice ethnic mixture as well. Tw...Jump to post
<i>If you live in Manhattan, a cab ride there is more than a cab ride to JFK or Laguardia.

JFK seems les...Jump to post
