The service is outstanding and the crew members are very welcoming and friendly.
I flew them 2 times without disappointment.

Wait...I heard The Commander in Cheat say Viktor Orbán was president of Turkey ?? no ?

In a speech in Florida Wednesday, the same buffoon called the Lebanese Hezbollah group, a sworn enemy of Israel, "very smart," and accused Netanyahu of being "not prepared" for the Hamas attack, which also killed 22 Americans.
