  1. All I’ll say is that United’s slots at MNL ARE terrible so I don’t blame them for angling for better slots.

  2. There is a Florida corrollary to the Manitoba safe distancing rule: Keep the length of 1 alligator between you and everyone else at all times.

  3. Manitoba (and Canada) being metric, it is unlikely that anyone under 50 would understand “foot” anyway.

  4. The Philippines has been screwing United for years now. Other airlines get multiple slots. Philippine airlines gets as many slots as they want. And United only gets one slot. Manila has a new terminal and could easily accommodate another slot for United.
