    My co-workers are aviationally retarded...

    Hi everyone,

    So...I work at Budget Travel Magazine as an intern to the photo editors on days of the week on which I don't have class. This morning sitting on all of our desks was the new March 2006 issue, which wont be released to newstands til March 1. It's a really nice issue, and we're all pleased, but there was a mistake published (aviation related) which I tried to inform the staff about when the article was being written...

    In the "Dream Trips" article, there is a section about a trip to Morroco. The stupid writer was going on and on saying how Morocco is the most accessable Arab country in Africa (why, I don't know), mentioning that RAM flies DAILY TO WASHINGTON D.C. and JFK.

    ...k...WRONG!! They certainly don't fly to D.C....I'm 100% positive. I tried to make people aware of this when the article was in the developmental stages, but I guess nobody listened. It couldn't be a codeshare from IAD either, cuz theyre are no flights from IAD to Morocco...So, congratulations to me and the fools I work with; we've just published false information! Hooray! :roll:

    Yep thats the general public for you. a 737 is a jumbo jet and a Das-8-q400 is a puddle jumper.

    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Well, I doubt even most airline fiends like us know exactly where RAM flies, but a reporter at a travel magazine should probably double check that sort of thing. :)
