The Amman - NY Air Link

I can't help it. Call it a bias and I don't care, but I just love to draw on links between both cities. In this year's news (before its almost over): Royal Jordanian celebrates 30 years of nonstop flights between Amman and NY, establishing that intimate link with the dear Middle East.

Ok, so I was one of RJ's victims of the recent flights that got messed up... I had my flight change three times, I barely made it to JFK, but, such a mess was worth it at the end; like meeting someone you think highly of.
A whole page ad in today's paper presented an apology and detailed explanation for the mess, quite an interesting way to communicate to the passengers...which brings up a random thought; I wonder if RJ will be hit by the wave of neoliberalism and consecutively undergoes privatisation. Come on, why should it be, it's royal after all!

Did RJ put an appology ad in the american newspapaer? Cause I didn't see any of this in the Jordanian press, we will probably never see

It was posted in Al-Rai here in Amman, I don't really know if it anything was posted in a US paper, since I was in Amman.

So yeah, a break through in communicating with travelers. You should have read it to believe.

It's a movie about a two teachers; a Jewish and a Muslim, who develop a friendship, as they both go through arranged marriages...
