I heard that people are also changing Russian Salad Dressing to Ukrainian Dressing to show support.

Serious question.

I haven't been following Fox news coverage much lately, but I keep seeing CV and others saying that their reporting of Ukraine is wrong and dangerous.

In a simple response, can someone share what Fox is saying different than others?

Is early departure a thing? Just had a plane close the doors 12 minutes early and announce they were leaving early. A bunch of people missed the flight by minutes, even though they weren't really late.

I've had it, but not when anyone was missing

I've seen this. Their excuse is that they can close the doors up to 15 minutes before. Had this on multiple airlines, and it's impacted me on southwest and air Canada. Both times they ended up letting us on, because they hadn't pulled away yet. But I've heard stories where they didn't

I know someone actually who showed up and the gate door was closed. Due to staffing shortages there was no one remaining at the counter. So he simply opened the door and walk down to the plane. Of course this set off some alarms and security came down. He was already by the aircraft and played kind of dumb and all worked out.

It's true but inconsistent. And since they don't in most cases...

On a full flight can they start giving seats away 10 minutes before takeoff?

Legally they can do that if you don't check in on time or come to the gate on time. (45/30 minutes before departure IIRC)

Yes, airlines are closing doors and giving away seats at T-15 more than ever.

True and done all the time.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Fwiw, Ryan must have told us close to ten times that they will close the door 15 before and that if we don't complete the security at the gate by then we will miss the flight.

For you this should work ;)
Many readings and events in Jewish law require in person attendance, and to hear the organic sound, no mics etc.

Did you ever link them?

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.
