  1. High ticket prices?
    Blame Republicans. So much for party of free trade.

    Blame democrats. So much for party of little guy.

    I am happy that health care bill is back on. Our best chance of killing off old Americans (anyone over 50)

  2. Good to see SQ whittling the brands down to 3 from 4, but they should really be 2 (merge SilkAir and SQ). I am surprised that Scoot was the surviving brand, because Tiger is more recognized, but I guess the fleets were similar in size.

    Got to sit in the cockpit once for a Kai Tak landing- definitely a highlight of my childhood. They didn’t mention one of the most exciting Kai Tak maneuvers- a go around when the pilot comes in too high.
