Re: Conviasa Hangars Doubles as Base for Armed Thugs

I don't know what flights remain to CCS from the USA, but this probably marks the end.

The most beautiful women tend to work in the most profitable lines of work. If they are flight attendants there was probably more to that story. Import/export, smuggling, or worse.
