  1. @ Gary — Sorry that made you cry. This IS hard. Oh, United. Run by people who clearly need a lesson on what loyalty means.

  2. @Gary: Bournemouth? Really? Made my day.
    That would be like parking Delta at RSW (Ft Myers). Actually, it’s worse.

    Guess they have to put them somewhere, and contrary to what many may believe, LHR is open

  3. Looks the same as all the US airports… this is nothing different than what we look like.

  4. Gene – I think or was Lucky at One Mile at a Time that cried about the Emirates ad.

  5. I loved that Emirates video as well. Unfortunately most people attacked it left and right on OMAAT’s page. I thought it was beautiful and so nicely done.

  6. Crying over an Emirates commercial? Humanity really is too soft. US COVID-19 deaths haven’t even reached half of flu deaths yet. The deaths of 75,000 people worldwide thus far, may of whom would have expired soon without COVID-19 infection, are unfortunate, but preventing such deaths is not worth sacrificing the well being of billions for years to come. If we had had a competent testing and tracing protocol, ubiquitous wearing of masks and isolation of the most vulnerable, we could largely have avoided this disastrous economic own goal. Imagine what we could have otherwise spent $2 trillion on.
