As you can imagine, 35 years at 1000TPs/yr would already be a sign of consistently sustained flying. We’ll see a lot of those when GfL has existed long enough if it does, as we’ll see some 60 year...

a) is completely correct indeed. For the rest, running through a red light is a traffic infraction (a low level form of ‘criminal’ violation), I do not believe that raising one’s divider is...
