where to start? she spends a lot of time at work and only has free time at weekends really, maybe once a week would be enough but need to get an entry level road bike first. start with 30min rides on a $300 bike and build into it? her health isn't the best so would be good for general wellness

What's your favorite defunct airline? Why did it disappear?
For me it's Ansett. They went bankrupt back in September 2001, though they stuck around until 2002 as an A320-only low cost carrier in the hopes of finding a buyer.

Their bankruptcy had a few causes
>Deregulation of the Australian airline market put increased pressure on their revenues
>Most of their major investments (including a part share in the now-defunct America West airlines) performed poorly
>Their 767 fleet was aging and regularly had maintenance issues, culminating in their 767 fleet being grounded in Christmas 2000 and their entire fleet being grounded in Easter 2001, which was an expensive loss.
>Air New Zealand bought them out and merged with them in early 2000. ANZ didn't really have the capital available for their own modernization needs, let alone those of Ansett, so the result was that both companies were severely undercapitalised. (ANZ would go bankrupt around the same time as Ansett and had to be renationalised)
>Air New Zealand's attempts to reduce the operating costs of Ansett had detrimental effects on service quality. Their aim was to keep the same revenue while getting costs down, since that was somewhat successful for Air New Zealand, but in Ansett it had the effect of driving away customers who wanted premium service
>They spent a large amount of money to become the official sponsors of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but didn't see much return on it since Qantas had a much stronger brand image internationally as Australia's airline, and combined with some guerilla marketing by Qantas a large number of people just assumed that Qantas was the official sponsor anyway.

After Singapore Airlines and Qantas pulled back from buying Ansett Mk.1 when it was in administration, there were plans to keep it flying in a smaller form put forward by the Tesna Consortium, but since the government didn't offer them any support they pulled back and Ansett Mk. 2's last flight landed on March 4th 2002.

Am rarted when it comes to airlines. Did United make a budget airline simply called Ted?
File: 1584576407076.jpg (62 KB, 900x632)

Yeah, it ran from 2003 to 2008 and was then closed when fuel prices spiked

They also had an earlier attempt at a low cost carrier called "Shuttle by United" which used 737s from 1994 to 2001. (There was a bit of a trend for this at the time. USAir had Metrojet from 1998 to 2001 and Delta had Delta Express from 1996 to 2003, which then became "Song" from 2003 to 2006)
What a stupid fucking name. "Ted." Someone call American Airlines and tell them to create a budget airline called Erica
I actually flew Song once, to and from Puerto Rico. Blew my mind because that was the first time I had flown on a plane that had seatback movie screens instead of the overhead aisle TVs. I had no idea at the time that it was technically a budget airline.

>the brand/model of those glasses?
You're right -- Oakley Flight Jacket. Oakley pricing is bizarre, it seems to depend on whether the frame is a currently fashionable colour or not.
thanks, drivetrain is 45/39 14-28, I wanted a smaller outer chainring for loaded city riding since 53/39 is just too awkward and prone to crosschaining. Would have preferred something like a 48 or 50 but 45 was the closest I could find that was also 130BCD and road-chain-compatible, has served me well.
of course ideally I'd just get a compact or subcompact crankset but the goal is to spend as little as possible on this one
also that looks like my bike's aggressive cousin, pretty cool

After WWII, New York’s Third Avenue Railway System sold some of these streetcars to Bombay, where the platforms were opened up and the cars narrowed. They had originally been rebuilt by TARS from old single truck cars.

Avoiding Canuck airspace to dodge overflight fees is no problem on SEA-JFK. NY Tracon actually prefers traffic come in from CLE instead of upstate, unless it is summer and TRWS are forcing traffic to the north.
choose one
Why would they allow a grounded plane not considered safe to fly in their airspace? Please explain this to me.
There are exactly zero US domestic flight materially affected by Canadian airspace. Because even the couple that might theoretically be are already running under capacity. Flying a barely longer route coats a lot less to the airline than running at 2/3 capacity. The whole premise of the asinine conversation you morons have had here is moot.
Do you really think Canada can say "no" to America? Get fucked, leaf.

Crust Bikes finally embraces their station as "Rivendell With Disc Brakes" - and will go on to show how much money Grant could have made it here had no scruples and cucked his legacy for marketing hype bullshit like disc brakes on pavement bikes.

Anyways here's the new ultraromance branded model, they decided to just paint it like a Riv so it would sell this time. Honestly prefer Grant's bumbling free speech SJW behavior greatly to Crusts cynical identity politics. Grant should just sue this point, no amount of instagram shoutouts are going to make up for the revenue they bite out of Riv with this blatant ripoff

I stumbled across this project that is planned in Prague on an old stretch of rails that are being relocated nearby and thought Ill share the visuals with you guys as I think its pretty cool /n/ reuse of a railway. They keep a lot of original elements there including several pieces of rails, bridges and lamps/signals

I have to say I am pretty curious to see it done.

on this one they show how an area around the Praha-Strasnice station will be used after it recieves the last train this december.

If you're a tourist in Philly, you'd have to come into Center CIty, go North through China Town and north still around Callowhilll, which is totally fine, but very industrial with big ass barbed wire fences and electrical shit everywhere. Looks very unfrirednly.
When you get to the line, it runs east west so you're not actually going anywhere.

Birmingham Alabama did this for a stretch of railway going straight through the city. pretty neat, called the rotary trail since there's already a railroad park
Problem with roads directly adjacent is they only serve frontage on one side. Junctions will be complicated by the crossings. It may feel less open and pleasant.
As a result of land ROW acquisition and spacing crossings at mid-block, it's common to align at-grade railways through backyards and alleys. Being embanked or sunken facilitates those parallel "frontage" roads.
yeah but, the railway is there in the first place because someone thought 'i need to get from [place] to [place] and i can't bike that far'. then you'd need someone to maintain the bike lanes so they didn't get overrun with weeds and trash.

i mean it's not a dreadful idea but, i mean, why not just take your bike on the train instead

unless you mean like intra-city light rail? in which case available space will be the issue, plus keeping cycle traffic and LRT traffic safe and separated.
