Never been a P in Thomson!

That always annoys me just as much as Stanstead does...rant over.

Regarding American Airlines I can't see them making a third attempt at Stansted.

canberra97...just for the record & I know you aim for completeness too, American Airlines 2nd coming @ STN was not really an "attempt" as such & not a full network integrated permanent approach,it was purely aimed @ Eos & MaxJet...job done they were "outta here big style"...Whether a 3rd coming has any credence well logic says no.........(however)..

I am totally aware of why American Airlines had their second attempt at Stansted to fight off EOS and Maxjet and the reasons behind it but a third attempt at the airport in my opinion won't happen.

ps notice I used 'and' rather than & and 'at' rather than @ or even 'third' rather than 3rd.

pps...& I notice you are still using the word "attempt" it was not an attempt it was just a strategic ploy & that was the reasoning for my post as attempt suggests possible failure as an outcome & in the STN context 2nd time around it was an absolute success...so one attempt & one success right?...& in my opinion too as I stated a 3rd coming is not logical......
Oh & by the way I notice everything but will not discuss my deliberate keyboard use with you.Can you & the others please keep the discussions or exchanges to relevant issues which we are more interested in rather than attempting to score cheap irrelevant points.Ta

SSB the adverse comments regarding your posts are because of your 'deliberate keyboard use'. Cannot you find a pattern forming here? It is not that people are trying to score 'cheap irrelevant points', it's just that we would like to understand what you are saying. We appreciate your support for STN, please help by writing your posts in intelligible English.

None of us are obliged to type anything, and none of us are obliged to read everything that has been typed.


I always work on the basis that people should type how they please (bearing in mind that if they were typing something because they want people to read it, the number of people who do so may be affected by the way they decide on) and that people should read what they want to (keeping in mind that they may miss something interesting based on what they want to).

If it really upsets anyone then there is an ignore list feature.

We don't want or even feel the need to use the ignore list all we want or expect from adults as in posters on these forums is for them to type in a manner that others can understand not in a gibberish childlike manner.

It's as if SSB has a different mentality when it comes to the English language and if he thinks he is being clever by doing so it only looses him any credibility on these forums so until he grows up and conducts his post in a more familiar way he can't be taken to seriously.

I think that's what others including myself are trying to get across.

This is the third time you've had a public spat with someone this week that's become a playground spat. Use private messages if you want to have a go at another person, it's tedious for the rest of us.....

Skip

We've had words in the past and I would prefer out of all people for you to personally keep your thoughts to yourself.

Your the first person to put someone down either on here or on airliners.net for far less than what I have wrote.

Can we please get this back on track and in the nicest possible way Canberra97 can you wind your neck in and build a bridge for the sake of all of us here.

Thank you.
