Re: Over 200 European Cities to Ban Vehicles for a Day

DrFumblefinger ·
Let's hope that the mobility impaired don't have to go anywhere that day. Let's hope no one needs an ambulance or police or fire dept services. Seems a retrogressive primitive move to me. What's next? The same government banning vehicles altogether?

Re: Mediation for AA/US Airways Merger

PHeymont ·
In a nutshell: AA and USAir are making exactly the argument you are, and the Justice Dept. is saying, in effect, "We shoulda stopped them, too." Obviously a lot of issues (both in terms of fares and of maintaining service to smaller cities), but not clear why the line's been drawn here. Meanwhile, Texas pulled out of the suit, Florida may follow, mayors of cities with AA and USAir hubs have backed the merger, airport operators are chiming in...so the mediation may end up being Justice's way...
