  1. Broken bones major Air France clue "Typically, if you see intact bodies and multiple fractures – arm, leg, hip fractures – it's a good indicator of a mid-flight break up," said Frank Ciacco, a former forensic expert at the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. "Especially if you're seeing large pieces of aircraft as well." http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/652774

  17. Thanks for all the great information. I have used the Aeronet information in the past to get some great deals, but this year (and don't laugh) I want to get a deal over March Break. YES I am looking for a package that includes positive air travel. I noticed that dargal has a few Club Meds, but not the one I want ( Guadaloupe). I am not sure I want to wait much longer for a package due to the Canadian dollar. I am considering going to SJO and do the rain forest thing in March, but I understand that is the beginning of the raining season.
  18. Are there any interline sites people can recommend? Just spent some time at www.dargal.com and was wondering if people had other sites where I can find some deals. If anybody has some experience with PTP and the Club Med there, I would also appreciate that information as well. Thanks
  19. I hope the games don't require people to "interact" with the screen, right now its pretty annoying when people behind you are selecting their movies - they push the screens waay to hard.
