  1. I don’t think there is upon booking, but if you use an app like FlightRadar24 you can see info on the plane maybe 36 hours before the flight. Then you can click the picture to go to a site to read info on the plane itself. The first pic is of a state plane (Arizona 1) that will be departing tomorrow evening from BNA to AUS. The second is the information about the aircraft from the embedded link to JetPhotos.
  2. Same. I may just be lucky but the longest I’ve ever had from arriving at the door to getting past security was like 35 minutes, and that included checking bags.
  3. Press the menu icon in the top right (three horizontal lines), then Account, then Ignored Users. You can add users there. Instead of seeing their posts your see something saying that they posted but you’ve chosen to ignore, and you have the option of showing an individual post. note: I’m using safari on an iPhone. Not sure if the desktop experience, or another browser, is any different.
  4. I’m actually kind of glad to see this. Flair announced this route first and it always seemed like the WestJet-owned Swoop was just coming in to pick off a poorer competitor. Flair will have this route to themselves for now, which helps their long-term viability in the BNA market.
  5. I liked that they removed the downvote option but everything else was kind of lame. And really the laughing one, if not used in an actual humorous situation, is a more douchy version of the downvote.
  6. If you download the Tapatalk it tells you who is reacting, even if it doesn’t tell you what specific reaction they’re putting in. So if you only have one reaction to your post it’s pretty easy to tell who put it in there. I’ve attached a picture so you can see the UI.
  7. It’s supposed to be built with as much sustainable materials as possible, with the interior furniture, laundry, and toiletries sourced with fair trade in mind. Basically trying to make the morally correct decision with each step. My wife and I gave some money back in 2016 when they were initially fundraising, but I figured after I didn’t hear anything for a few years that it was dead. I’m glad Mr. Cowart is still trying to make it happen.
  8. Alright, makes sense. I was confused by the start of this thread, which at the time was specifically stated by Lexy as a place to share news because the main page was too cluttered. And by the fact that there wasn’t a single multi-picture post in this thread until around 14 months after it started.
  9. When the flights and airlines thread was created I thought it was to provide a space for new flight and airline news distinct from the photos which were at that time clogging up the main BNA thread. I thought THIS was supposed to be the refuge from the constant repetitive pictures. What’s the main BNA thread for? Specifically pictures of construction? Anyway, I blocked the user in question and it provides for a much more readable experience. The only reason I get so irritated about it was when I started coming to this site 6-7 years ago it was primarily due to the BNA news, so it’s devolution into constant pictures of the same random aircraft has kind of ruined my experience here. I know The Moderators hath Spoken but it still doesn’t change my experience.
  10. I used one of those in Chicago-Midway earlier this year. Funny thing is they had to have like 3 guards around the front to make sure people didn’t steal. Why not just have them work the register?
  11. I believe they were the last domestic users of the 747-200F, which they retired like 3-4 years ago. Also, the aircraft used in the movie Air Force One was a re-painted Kalitta 747-200.
  12. I was driving through south loop earlier today with my 4 year old daughter in the backseat, and while we were passing Haven she bursted out “Daddy, that building has so many pretty colors!!” Maybe I found their target audience - 4 year old girls?
  13. To provide a separate space specifically for new airline and new flight news was literally why this thread was created. Atlas has now been flying to BNA multiple times per week for like a year and a half, I don’t know why we keep having to thumb through pictures of the same shots of the same 747’s operated by the same airline. I value the poster because he often posts the breaking news in this and several other threads, so I don’t want to block his posts, it’s just kind of making this thread unusable and uninteresting.
  14. It’s not really a matter of wanting to live far out, it’s just what a bank will loan you. There’s typically a maximum they’ll loan you for the mortgage, so if what you can afford is an hour out that’s what you have to do. Especially if you’re a paterfamilias like myself and have a brood of young’uns to house: my mortgage is roughly half or less of what a 3-4 bed apartment in the urban core would cost. We recently moved from Madison to White House, and initially we wanted to stay in Davidson county but the quality of the houses in our range was just garbage in Davidson. Or they were in terrible parts of town, the type of places where if I was a single hipster - a gentrifying conquistador - I would move, but never in a million years with my children. My commute went from a few minutes to roughly half an hour each way but I avoid the interstate and take scenic secondary roads, plus I have an Audible membership for my listening pleasure. It’s not too bad.
  15. It seems they’re in the process of clearing the entire (formerly) North Park Village senior community, which has been empty for a few months. They’ve shredded basically every tree on the land. I hope what they’re building there is worth it, I used to live right near there and I loved the giant, old, beautiful shumard oaks that dotted that area. Plus there were several healthy young white ash trees, which are critically endangered. I’m kind of bummed about this. “Many of these trees were my friends. Creatures I had known from nut and acorn.”
  16. I’d say that of all the reasons that urban downtowns decayed from the 1960s to the 1990s, shopping malls rank pretty low. Below, say, white flight and the crack epidemic.
  17. Pretty much the malls just consolidated in Nashville. Hickory Hollow and Bellevue closed, Opry Mills and Green Hills (and Cool Springs) expanded and improved the experience. Rivergate is still hanging on, somehow.
  18. As much as I hate that malls were one of the major killers of small town shopping in the 70s and 80s, I find the shopping experience at them extremely pleasant. To be able to peruse hundreds of stores and restaurants without having to re-park in comfortable air conditioning in TN summers may be wasteful, but it’s still a nice experience to me. I most often go to Opry Mills, having gone hundreds of times since the mall opened, and for all the reputation for violence the worst I’ve actually seen is someone discreetly smoking a cigarette in a maintenance hallway. That and the ubiquitous tinted Dodge Chargers driving 60 mph in the movie theater parking lot, which is an issue anywhere there are young dumb men in their 20s willing to take on $700 monthly car payments. I love that there are options like the aforementioned 5th and Broad that offer a more urban shopping setting. But the reality of having to fight downtown traffic, find a place to park, pay for parking, get kids in and out of car seats within the confines of a tight urban garage parking spot or parallel spot, navigate with kids and strollers through the urban environments that are extremely kid-unfriendly (malls are designed towards families and often have play areas for kids and parents to have brief respites), along with the fact that the rent in these settings are so high that it drives away the more price-conscious shopper, means that there is absolutely a good reason for many people to still use malls.
  19. I think the damage has already been done with the way many people see it, in the allotment of congressional seats. I think this is a lesson that hopefully teach these states the value of investing in their census taking infrastructure and advertising.
  20. There’s no point in debating someone who provides their own definitions to suit their arguments and believes they’re the only one that should allow personal experiences to influence their views on stuff. I’d advise disengaging.
  21. https://fox17.com/news/local/thousands-more-people-are-moving-out-of-nashville-than-moving-in-report-shows Another article regarding population in Nashville declining in 2021 (allegedly).
  22. I don’t think that’s a BCF? It doesn’t look like a converted freighter - the upper deck is shortened and normally BCF’s or BDSF’s don’t have the nose cargo door.
  23. Designed by the esteemed architectural firm Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and Associates.
