I should clarify shonanbb's comment to "Most Hindus choose not to eat beef curry; however, beef curries are a favorite dish of the rest of the Indian population".

McDonalds and Coca Cola appear to be two of the absolute worst foods bestowed on the world by the US. We need to shut these down like cigarette smoking.

Only until we have an accident deemed not credible and low probability by the regulators; and there are many of these!!

And has the US ever apologized for the immense humanitarian loss and devastation from the bombings of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden, and the like? The past is past; let's focus on the present aggressors instead.

Clearly, backing in initially is preferable to having to back out later based on visual familiarity with the parking spot, greater manuveribility of the car because the front steering wheels are not restricted by other parked cars on either side, and lastly if one has to back out the driver is essentially blind until half the car has emerged from the parking spot. Try it yourself and see!!

I wonder how many schools were surveyed? Having this number will give an idea of how widespread this practice is of student abuse and mutilation. Sounds very 3rd. World and unbecoming of Japan.

Once the aircraft doors are closed the Chief Pilot is designated the supreme authority on the aircraft. The pilot should also be investigated for bowing to frivilous demands of a passenger. Instead the passenger should have been thrown off when the aircraft returned to the gate for unrly behavior. This pilot is unfit to command an aircraft.

It's going to cost plenty to switch to one standard frequency or the other throughout the country, but for an advanced nation like Japan the logic of not doing so is truly baffling. It's similar to to Japan driving on the left in vs right side of the road (but at least that is uniform throughout Japan)! Equally inefficient is the USA which refuses to change over to the metric system for weights and measures. It all boils down to POLITICIANS who imagine they are experts on everything, that's why the world is in such a mess and getting worse as we speak.

Having read the recent JapanToday article on how JAL prepares their flight food, one is impressed by JAL's high quality standards in that JAL does not permit foods to be served 24 hours after it has been prepared; one is also reminded that food is prepared, cooled, and then reheated prior to serving - quite an undertaking, we call those dishes left-overs at home!!
I just wonder if other airlines like UAL have any quality standards, or are they too embarassed to reveal how they manipulate the food?

Today the youth and their following seem to have lost their taste for classic aromas and flavours, regardless of what food they are eating. The criterion for determining if something is good seems to be based on the strange concoctions, blends, and fusions that are so proudly stirred-up by the chef. Thank you, I will stick to the true classic tastes and aromas that do not rely on my imagination!

Tut,tut; bad decision not supported by the facts which grounded the plane in the first place. With the root-cause still unknown and unresolved, the fixes just mask the original problem. Within two years this decision will be regeted!!

Modifications and additional procedures are worth little unless they are clearly directed at the root-cause of the problems encountered, otherwise they amount to duct tape over band-aid fixes just to mask the problrm. With the root-cause still unknown and unaddressed the FAA has been swayed by political pressures to get the planes flying. The Japanese Transport Ministry should not rubber stamp the FAA decision, because over time the problems encountered in January will repeat, only this time they will surely doom the 787 forever. Its a pity that Boeing and FAA are being so short sighted.

Used to be the standard feature in India too; at home, in schools, railway cars, public buildings, etc., but like in Japan the new generation feel it's pre-historic. Let's hope there will be a comeback.

Boeing claims the batteries were replaced as part of maintenance and therefore this is not a safety issue. What infantile statement; maintainence itself is performed to try to preclude failures in order to prevent in-flight safety consequences.
