  1. @Gary … The quote : “What Fresh Hell is This?” , ought to be attributed to Dorothy Parker , ( who famously said it ) . It is appropriate for almost all air travel these days .

  2. US Customs is such an incredibly unprofessional organization, they just never cease to amaze and impress with ever lower standards. Went through Terminal 8 at JFK – 7:00 a.m. on 1/10 – and witnessed an insane Officer in full battle regalia screaming, cursing, and threatening to “put them on the ground in handcuffs” at the top of his lungs at an elderly Chinese couple who clearly didn’t understand English, because they were standing at the exit door. Made me completely ashamed of my country. Welcome to the USA indeed.

  3. I have never had a problem with CBP officers but it is too bad that a photo of William Joseph Timothy is not available to help people recall if they went through his station.

  4. Had they changed the name to the Delta Hotel, Pritesh’s parents could have charged premium prices and quickly recouped their investment.
