In Topic: Buying Credits in the US

It all depends on your bank's conversion fees. If you live in a small country with its own currency and travel lots I recommend getting a card which charges small or no conversion and widrawal fees. I strongly recomend that the everyday card is from such a bank because over the years you can save lots even in your own country by not paying widrawal fees (although cash is rarelly necessary nowdays).

American is proud to announce that our 20 brand new 737-800s are wearing beautiful Fifty Shades Freed liveries. Fifty Shades Freed is the third and last movie in the Fifty Shades trilogy about the adventures of Ana and Christian. American as a Seattle based carrier is a strong sponsor of Fifty Shades as the majority of the action is in Seattle. American has previously sponsored the success of Fifty Shades Darker and can't wait to see the climax in Fifty Shades Freed! As American is investing in 150 Seattle built 737s we could not have had a better aircraft to wear our Fifty Shades special liveries. These liveries have the same engines, winglets and tail designs as the standard American liveries but they carry distinctive grey "Fifty Shades Freed" titles and "Dont Miss The Climax". Each flight will from now until the end of February screen the trailer during boarding and the song "For You" will be used as boarding music together with a brand new Fifty Shades Safety Video. As soon as the movie releases it will be available on board American flights. Welcome on board the Fifty Shades Airline to the Fifty Shades City!

 


In Topic: Cargo planes' route restrictions

Another possibly more difficult to program solution would be to increase the landing fees for cargo aircraft. Most large airports double as shopping centres where passengers spend money boosting the profits of the airport operator. Cargo however does not spend any money!


I have never heard about this, airports usually want cargo airlines as they can use undesirable slots and they increase desire for businesses to be present on airport property. There are a couple airports around the world who prefere passengers, LHR and DXB are the only ones I can think of but both offer other alternatives for cargo airlines.

In Topic: Holding and Subsidiaries...

Would this work if your subsidiaries are worth more than 10m? Where would you get the cash to buy back the subs?

 

Sure, you don't have to buy back all of it at a time and you can also buy it for slightly less than the value. Although over 30 million in value is fairly hard. 


In Topic: Changing seat pitch of already installed cabin

Instead of going less seats more leg room, I would rather get better seats. You gain much more from getting better seats which include more legroom anyways.
