Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Trump invites Putin to White House - and the first his own appointee as Director of National Intelligence learns about it is in a TV interview! Intelligence in the White House is clearly not spread to those who should know.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I was thinking more along the lines of going to attend games like at Old Trafford than the notion they would play games. I fully understand. But in the brutal reality of the our world, it is unlikely Manchester United made the offer without considering the PR value to the Club. And I reckon their P...

Re: Elon Musk Calls Cave Rescue Diver Pedophile

The cave rescue diver said Musk could “stick his submarine where it hurts,” and that it had “absolutely no chance of working.” It so happens it was Vern Unsworth's intimate knowledge of the cave after six years of exploring it that resulted in the expert divers from the UK being called in to be par...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I would not be surprised if the rest of the team goes without the stateless boys/coach. I wonder how you invite a team to youth soccer tournaments in Lisbon and Barcelona with less than a full team and without an Assistant Coach. That's very different from merely flying boys over to attend one matc...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Even if they can't go, I still have a feeling that some of those teams might instead come to Thailand and put on exhibition games or something similar and the boys would be the guests of honor. It wouldn't cost them any more to go to Thailand than it would to bring the boys to them. Nice idea but s...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Kathmandu's international airport is no great shakes, but far better than the domestic one.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I wonder if Adul could be adopted by Thais. Would that help in gaining Thai citizenship? I still believe the government will make an exception. As i stated earlier, I am certain the boys will not accept the invitations from Manchester United, Benfica and Barcelona unless they can go with their frien...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

Forgive me for venting, and I know that this is totally missing the point, but I can't help but be appalled by how much misinformation we've been fed over the past weeks. I don't believe for a minute the world was "fed" a lot of inaccuracies. As in many dangerous situations where those in...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Least Favourite Airline - If I don't like one the first time I take it, that's it! I don't take it again. Favourite Airport - Singapore's Changi is hard to beat and the new Terminal 4 is said to be stunning. It's also so easy to get to and from the city. Least Favourite Airport - quite a few! I hav...

Re: Skytrax Best Airlines for 2018

Personally, I would have much more interest in what board members here have to say. This is a hard one if only because my own preferences differ depending on long-haul v. short-haul and biz class v. economy class. But here goes – Short-Haul - Economy Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, China Airlin...
