  • So far there are no direct flights to Tbilisi from anywhere in North America (actually, not really any from Asia either). The farthest aeroplane comes from London. Of course, the Chicago leg is utterly unnecessary, since flights from Dulles go to any number of convenient places in Europe, but I didn't book my own tickets.

    BWI is in Linthicum, I suppose (not West Friendship, which is where dont_cry lives).

    A friend of mine told me yesterday that Istanbul is actually not a Turkish word, but a corruption of the Greek for "in the city". I don't have time to confirm this now, but it sounds interesting. I'll have seven hours there. Maybe that will be enough to see someplace. I'm thinking about the contents of my personally memorized lexicon of Turkish...let's see, here we are:

    merkez: center

    tuvalet: toilet

    Oh well, guess that's all. Flight in five hours.

  • To the attention of our United State of America passengers;

    United States of America National Transportation Safety Board requests to receive the information of name, surname, sex, and date of birth of passenger’s flying to USA or from USA at least 72 hours before the flight time as of 01 November 2010.

    The passenger who cannot provide this information may not travel to USA or from USA after 01 November 2010. Turkish Airlines momentously requests its passengers who fly to USA to complete required information before 01 November 2010 by applying Turkish Airlines Sale Offices or travel agencies where they obtain their tickets.
