Gillette recently came out with a new ad campaign. https://youtu.be/koPmuEyP3a0 It would have been ok if it weren't for a few things... 1) The ad implies that all men are pigs that must be stopped. This is reinforced in the line that says "some already are" in reference to men who try to ...Jump to post
This is a joke. The whole bloody world knows what a Big Mac is, so for the EUIPO to say that McDonald's can't prove that the term Big Mac is being used by McDonald's is preposterous!Jump to post
Singapore Airlines- South Africa to New Zealand? Seems a strange routing , was this a charter? No, regular route. Flown it several times. At the time (not sure about now), it was one of a few options. I would imagine they still operate that route. MH use to do it too, but pretty sure they cancelled...Jump to post
Never was able to fly on a 747. By the time I could afford to fly internationally the 747 had left the fleet of major Asian airlines.
But I did manage to pay homage to the first 747, RA001, at the Museum of Flight back in 2016 so at least that's something.

Why dome some airlines operate multi-engine types of the same aircraft? Look for example at TK's A330 fleet. They operate every engine type available on the A330. Their A330-300s are equipped with both GE and RR engines and their A330-200s are equipped with GE, PW and RR (Turkish Cargo). Why is tha...Jump to post
Just to let everyone know - May & June would probably be a lull month this year, because of the Ramadhan & Eid celebrations. July/August would probably see increased loads for Hajj so who knows, maybe MH is parking it for a few months to get it prepared for the Hajj influx.Jump to post
Not American, so my opinions don't matter much. But honestly, why can't everyone hold their judgement on AOC until she has the time to prove herself in the legislature?
If my experience of politicians are anything to go by, you will only be able to see their true colours after 6 months.

How do you make Boeing realize the importance of the Philippine market, and actually make an effort to sell stuff there?

For airports with pronounceable codes, I'd pronounce it:
Eg: KUL, PEN, SIN, LAX, SEA
For airports whose codes are not pronounceable, I'd spell it.
Eg: LHR, NRT, TPE, CDG
And some airport, I just don't bother and just say the name
Eg: IAD - Dulles, JFK - Kennedy, AMS - Amsterdam.
And FILA still exists? I only got their stuff when they had Ferrari branded things. I had no idea FILA did Ferrari branded things. My only frame of reference for them is the 1984-85 FILA Edition Ford Thunderbird, though from the ad I gathered they were a sportswear company. http://www.curbsideclass...Jump to post

I'd imagine they just repainted the tail they had there, which incidentally was off an old BA 741. Hard to wrap your head around how big it is until you're standing next to it.

Problem is you want more punishment than what the law will serve. And that's the problem that I'm having with all this. Where have I said I want more punishment?

Question: Did he travel non-rev or actually bought the revenue ticket? I have to ask because he would qualify for non-rev travel as a parent.

Can’t speak for sure. But my guess is - when “getting lucky”, people want to feel that it’s safe, and that they aren’t doing anything illegal.

One thing that I would suggest is not to take the bait. If the trolls insult, ignore them & continue discussing the matter at hand. They shout at you, you respond to them politely. Then you can easily avoid the insults etc that led to Russian threads being locked.Jump to post

I think it's not about read backs, but it's about the terminology used in the read backs.

I don't have much sports paraphernalia. The ones I do have is exclusively focused on Formula One, like my autographed Sauber-Petronas team cap from 2004 signed by Giancarlo Fisichella & Felipe Massa & a Honda Racing brochure signed by last year's Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato.Jump to post
