AA does have 777s on that route. He just didn't take it.

Isn't that exactly his point? On the same route, AA had what they pass off as first and b6 managed to get real first.
AA and united manage to do real first on transcon flights, and I hate that they don't offer it on any other domestic routes. I hope JetBlue forces them to up their game.
Technically it's true, but realistically it's not a valid comparison .....

Seasonally. Currently scheduled for February 16 through March 24, then again from June 7 on.

Not more then fake F. Search Matrix using extension code "AA / aircraft t:777" to confirm times / dates.

My point is he was comparing similar roues at similar prices. If their J/F offerings are of such a significantly lesser quality on certain planes, the prices should reflect that, no?

"It is unclear how to date the first Judeo-Christian Crusade to recapture Jerusalem from Muslims. Some might date it from the November 1917 Balfour Declaration when the United Kingdom, then at war with the Ottoman Empire, promised to establish a homeland for Jews in Palestine, an Ottoman territory. Some might date it from May 1948, when Israel was declared an independent state. Some might date it from June 1967, when the Jews defeated the Arab armies and conquered East Jerusalem and other Muslim territories. Some might date it from December 2017 when the United States recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."

And some might date it to August 0070 (Av 3830) with the destruction of the bayis Sheini...

wow there is a lot of great stuff in this article.
for starters I love how he keeps saying European Jews, would love to ask him what happened to the middle eastern/ Sephardic Jews.
love how he cherry picks his starting point in Jerusalem's history from when Muslims captured it
and this is a real doozy

Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, and Yemen have been deliberately destroyed to strengthen the foothold of Israel in the region. Iran is next in line. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and some other Muslim countries have been compromised in favor of Israel by non-representative governments, monetary incentives, and military threats.
great job by Huffington post. quality journalism.

You would be surprised how many people (especially in the Arab world) believe these narratives. That is why I said on another thread that they should be thankful to Trump for the Jerusalem announcement. It just brings them closer to reality.

If $75k-$100k family salary was the norm, how are they getting government assistance?  You would need to have more than 12 kids to get food stamps unless he meant off the books.

1. What percent of those families have 12 kids?
2. What percentage are getting govt assistance?
3. The numbers for assistance are higher than you think. With a family of 10 (8 kids) they can be making $75k and still get health coverage for their kids for free. With 12 kids they can still get susidized coverage with ove $250k http://www.wnylc.com/health/afile/15/314/
