That's true, but you're missing an important point: for the fact that AMS is a better airport to connect in than CDG (I agree wholeheartedly, by the way) to matter, the people shopping for the flight have to know that fact. I'd guess that the overwhelming majority of people shopping for connecting ...Jump to post
OP, from your user name I assume you're American. For that, the answer is pretty easy: Paris. The reason has nothing to do with AMS or CDG as airports, simply that the O&D from almost everywhere in the US will be bigger to Paris than it will be to Amsterdam. More O&D usually means more high...Jump to post
>> Political parties can only reach a max limit of 30% of any representative body they sit in - to discourage 2 party systems which are more open to abuses of power. That will not work unless there are already credible third (ideally fourth/fifth/sixth...) parties. Otherwise you will end up with a ...Jump to post
The Stearman (Boeing) Model 75 is a biplane formerly used as a military trainer aircraft, of which at least 10,626 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s. Stearman Aircraft became a subsidiary of Boeing in 1934. Widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman or Kaydet, it serv...Jump to post

Now, I don't know what police training is for a situation like this, but I sure hope that "reach for your service weapon and start firing without checking your target or what's behind it" isn't what they're being taught.

As an outsider looking in, I have one question. Assume for a second Trump gets successfully impeached based on campaign finance irregularities. Does this mean that Pence becomes VP?

Neither Boeing nor Airbus had any interest in the market.
