Actually, Helen approved a batch last Friday, and someone did post AC's press release. However, my news server has been a bit unreliable lately. When I posted the previous message last Saturday, I had not seen the AC post, hence, I made the comment. Anyway, I try not to abuse my privilege too much. ;-) Since these newsgroups usually have good coverage on American and European carriers, I tend not to post breaking news about them (so other people have a chance to do so ;-) ). When it comes to airline-related breaking news, I try to limit myself to news about Asia-Pacific airlines, such as the AN/NZ/SQ alliance, etc. > >I'll skip the details.

Many have corrected my mistake. Thanks!
