I can't be the only one who would have fun holding Don while being unable to provide priority ;-)

Wow, I didn't know you guys liked to cuddle and snuggle so much  ;D

And, of course, with this event being past my retirement date, if someone were flying AF1 with VATUSA1 on board and decided to assign him holding, Mark would be on board tracing huge circles in the sky ;)

We can buy Mark's loyalty, I have faith.  He'll make sure you're there.

Of course  not.  Watch them try and get through NY CTR without having to do a few loop-d-loops!   lol

Come on guys, don't overdo it ;D The flight is long enough already and the event runs 1 a.m. - 5 a.m. for me :D

So... We know who has a plausible deniability to forget to have them exit the holds. We can use somebody like you.

So no escape from holds? Anything else I should know? This will be my first and last time flying AF1, I promise. ;D You have to admit, the event theme is literally asking for it ;D
