    Great news. In Germantown, TN, Apple fought with the town for a very long time over their facade and sign. The town does not allow corporate logos in signs. Finally they compromised and Apple just put their logo next to the door. There is no other sign signifying that it is an Apple store. Yet, I've heard it is one of top performers in the country.

    There's actually a nice neighborhood on the north side of Jackson where a lot of the faculty live. Anything directly surrounding Rhodes is decent.

    Sweet. Three good destinations.

    I don't even know what cities those airports are in, except San Diego.

    For one thing, you can conviently connect to any city in Europe from AMS. You can only fly to major cities from the US, and those flights are usually only daily. Also, the flight provides convenient access to the flower growers in Holland, which has helped make Memphis the number one overnight shipper of flowers in the country. And it is nice to be directly connected to the rest of the world, rather than just an island. In a few weeks, I'm going to Charleston. It sure is nice to be able to take a direct flight. It sure is nice to take a direct flight to other cities I travel to like Baton Rouge, Jackson, Gulport, Destin, Panama City, and Vancouver. I've even flown to Vail and Aspen direct from Memphis. Yeah, I did have to connect in DEN to get to SAN once, but that soon won't be a problem.

    The new Embraer 170 with its 70 seats is the perfect plane for MEM and is supposed to fuel growth of the hub here. I haven't flown on one, but an Airbus pilot told me he likes it just as much as the Airbus, both the cockpit and the cabin.

    Is it possible that the DOJ may require DL to sell the MEM hub to another airline since NW and DL are the only two airlines that serve many markets in the South? Many more will just have DL and CO. A lot of markets in the South will lose competition if DL absorbs NW, and that may be a problem with the DOJ.

    This would be good for NWA since they have a codeshare agreement with Aeromexico. There would be a lot of connecting passengers on that flight.

    Little. NW is just investing in Midwest to prevent Airtran from building a hub in the upper midwest.

    I found a picture of the underground tunnel and the "rapid transit" system under construction at the airport. I wonder what happened to this. Why did they use this tunnel to connect the A and C terminals instead of building the elevated connector? http://pictopia.com/perl/gal?process=galle...;sequencenum=12

    I don't think I could live in that building. You'd have to drag me out of Earnestine & Hazel's every night. That would be the end of me.
  14. It is going to be on the site of the current MMHI (the big gray ugly building on Poplar). I think the long side of the building will face Poplar.

    F9 seems to be adding flights to destinations in the Midwest that are strongholds of NW. I wonder if they are trying to drive them out of business.
