Not weird at all.

Often did it and usually would stow it in a coat closet at each office I visited. I once had a colleague who swam every morning for exercise. In Paris, which was a one night stand for my firm, she'd...

Key Money

Pepsi and Coke regularly pay "key money" to get signage and, in countries where it is legal, sole vendor status is restaurants, sports stadiums/arenas and the like. I'm quite confident that AA could,...

Missing the point

Delta's defenders properly point out that the Saudis make their visa rules and that the airlines don't control it. To me the point is simple. Delta doesn't have to put its code share on Saudia...

IST availability

For what it's worth, I checked KVS for a couple of days in Sept. and found no availability in any class. It's possible that, as another poster suggested, you may have better luck if you ask the agent...

Common Glitch

I've seen this problem increasingly with flights I've booked with B6. When it happens, you're only alternative is to call them or wait until you get to the airport.

I've been on many flights where something in the galley wasn't properly secured and stuff went flying, but have never seen anyone hurt. However, some years ago, a colleague of mine was on an internal...
