My fear at his election, and even more so now, is the lessening stabilization of this country, to the point of chaos. How quickly it's happened, and yes, this could get very ugly. Not only for Trump and his administration, but also for the American people. This presidency is not, and has never been...Jump to post

Yet the customer service on the ME3 (and most non-US airlines) is consistently better. Why is that, do you think? The US excels in customer service in most other areas. Why is it so bad on US carriers? Ask yourself that. "Let's fly on a US carrier, I hear the service is amazing!" Said no o...Jump to post
Billions of people live within 7 hours flying time out of the ME. Can't say the same about any airport in North America, a continent flanked by two large oceans to the East and the West plus a very thinly populated country to the North.

Ivanka Trump, as BobPatterson pointed out, is an advisor to the President. He had something else to do, so she took his place. It is quite normal. If she wasn't his daughter, then it wouldn't be news. But she is his daughter. It's nepotism. Daughter and son-in-law as advisors. Right... How exactly ...Jump to post

With so many conflicting and overlapping weapons laws across the world, What do you mean with "many and conflicting"?

Slightly OT , but I recently flew to BRU on a CityJet Brussels Airlines SSJ, quite pleasant flight (interior fittings, wall panels etc all a bit 'plasticky' but clean and fresh).

I'm not tired of the winning! In what possitive way did your life change in the last 5 mounths by acts of your president? What did you win? He's turned America into the laughing stock of the world.

Will they implement some of these measures in the US, because the TSA is hardly known for their effectiveness...?
Yeah, thought not. More expensive security theater.

Bahrain has a majority Shia population that is ruled by a Sunni minority (and supported by the Saudis). If Qatar is getting friendly with Iran, that would explain it.
Now is the time when a stable, competent US president could prove helpful in diffusing this situation. Alas, we can't have everything.

Don't worry, we can get through all this by showing them love and having open borders..that solves everything (rolling eyes).

You should use the passport required for the destination at checkin as that's what will be entered into the system. For example, flying to Germany, you should check in using your German passport.
