  1. The renderings for the new The Club lounges at CLT and SFO are very different from the other locations (much nicer, IMO), so I wonder if we are getting one here? I reached out to both CLT the lounge developer/operator a few weeks ago to see where and when the The Club would be opening. The former said they couldn’t comment, and I never heard back from the later.
  2. August 13, 2019: Thank you for visiting The Club CHS. We hope you enjoyed your stay. CLT, your home airport, is certainly a location where we hope to open a Club in the future. We appreciate your interest and your feedback.
  3. Me too! My phone actually did overheat yesterday while leading a conference call from my sunny condo courtyard. Was using it as a WiFi hotspot too, so double whammy.
  4. Because the writer, Ted Reed, is a former Observer columnist who still lives here and was probably just as excited as us to see a Qatar 77W at CLT.
  5. Yes, it opened (briefly) in late February, and I had a chance to visit a few days later. Amex just announced that they will be slowly reopening lounges starting in early October, but a reopening date hasn’t been set for CLT.
  6. Thanks for the unintended 90s Erykah Badu flashback, tarhoosier!
  7. AA is also adding FSD (Sioux Falls, SD) 1x daily on a PSA CRJ-700 starting 11/4. A seasonal RAP (Rapid City, SD) flight has been around for a couple years, but I don’t remember any previous CLT-FSD flights. https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/293451/american-airlines-w20-north-america-network-additions-as-of-30aug20/
  8. Nice to get this route back seasonally! I just returned from a 30-day working vacation in Mexico, including a long weekend stay in Puerto Vallarta and neighboring Sayulita on the Riveria Nayarit. Pro Tip: If you’re on the west coast of Mexico, don’t let the US Department if State’s Do Not Travel warning scare you away from Mazatlan (in Sinaloa) or Acapulco. Both are beautiful, and I couldn’t have felt more safe, even after dark. Plus everything is cheaper, the food is better, and you actually feel like you’re in Mexico.
  9. Are they going to project their logo into the night sky like a Bat, I mean Bank, Signal? That would be pretty cool, except... does purple light help you sleep? I already get the glow from the light sabers through my bedroom window.
  10. Don’t hate on Boise! It actually has a nice little skyline is a great town . And fun fact: it has the largest concentration of Basques in the US.
  11. I think this would be a great way for BofA to spend some of the $1B it has committed to advancing racial equality and economic opportunity. Subsidize rent and/or provide low/no interest loans to small and minority-owned businesses to create a diverse retail destination (and small farmers market!) in the shadow of their world HQ building.
  12. The types of financial services jobs in Charlotte DO NOT generate any meaningful international travel demand. Folks here make a good living supporting domestic consumer and small business banking operations and doing back office work (things like risk, compliance, legal, technology, HR, etc.), but those aren’t jobs that often require domestic travel, much less international travel. I think Charlotte will continue to add those types of jobs, but that will not get us non-stops to any global financial centers that are not already served from CLT. With modern technology that allows global teams
  13. Sounds like a perfect spot for Inlivian. Land swap?
  14. Not necessarily. I live in said former brothel, and one of my former neighbors was briefly a side hustler.
  15. We can’t conflate these two things. Although equally tragic, murder committed by an officer of the law sworn to serve and protect is more egregious. However, that does not mean that murder of innocent people by any perpetrator should be met with less than equal outrage. Systemic racism absolutely is a major problem and perpetuates much of this violence through suppression of opportunities for people of color (and other minorities - let’s not forget the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who also happen to have a darker skin tone or different hair texture), but it doesn’t absolve anyone of
