    How long does it take to fly from Atlanta to Amsterdam? The phone rep said "Just a minute". I replied "Wow! Thanks." and hung up.

    You must be traveling through a connecting city.

    The representative to whom I spoke said “Just a second...”

    They told me "Just a moment", which is somewhere between a second and a minute. I must be travelling through a connection and the OP must be going the loooong way.

    Apparently they stopped saying "Just a second" or "Just a moment" because everyone kept asking the pilot "Are we there yet?"

    That's because, according to Delta.com, Amsterdam is in Georgia;

    I think all flights to AMS should leave at 4:20, like the one in the previous post. ;)

    Comair flies direct there from BUF. They call it the "home on the range" route.

    There is a Tripoli Tavern in Chicago, but Boston Red Sox fans hang out there. They are threatening a fight to the death against the indigenous Cubs fans, and so NATO has designated Bill Buckner to enforce the no-fly zone.

    Don't forget Athens, GA. :)

    GA must be so much bigger than TX that the peach state covers so many cities in different "countries." :D

    I LOVE Athens!

    It's no accident that I brought up Athens. That's where I first encountered the American craziness and (illegal) parking on the lawns all over campus during football seasons. :eek:

    I especially miss the weather and fantastic film selections every quarter at UGA movie theater.

    I moved here for the summer in 1988 and forgot to leave. :cool: Now just so you know parking in the loading zone isn't so you can go out and get loaded. :D

    Btw, my profile pic was taken at Sandy Creek Park.

    Like a self-loaded cargo? ;)

    Those "crazy" Americans were not well-behaved and literally parked on the lawns. You know, the areas with the green stuff on them. Where are the police when you need them? :confused: I tried to stay away from campus on home game days so I may keep my sanity. :p

    Since 1988? We might have run into each other back then. I was in Athens during late 1980s. I lost my international virginity (flight) to Delta when joining the Bulldog & company.

    There's a Paris, Kentucky and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Also Cambridge, Minnesota, while Rochester is in both New York and Minnesota; DL services both.

    Buckner's a sieve. I know, I was there 25 years ago. :D:D

    But in his defense, the game was over before he had a chance to blunder.

    You think Boston had any life after giving up 2 runs already in the bottom of the 10th? The ball under Buckner's glove did allow the winning run to come in, but the Sox fell apart long before the well known error.

    He's the goat. That game was lost for Boston whether it was the bottom of the 10th or a later inning.

    If Buckner had caught that ball and simply stepped on first base, the game would have been dramatically different and Boston would most likely have won the 1986 World Series.
