Jackie Chan wows the crowd on the Shanghai static

Shanghai pang…plus gratuitous Jackie Chan mention

The Air France service was Paris CDG-Rio de Janeiro via Dakar while BA’s was London Heathrow-Bahrain. BA hoped at the time that the Bahrain service would eventually be extended to Australia. There are, of course, still some brave souls keeping the faith. Aerion springs to [...]
