    Yes aircraft have GPS (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-pacific-26544554) , however they are not certified for use as a primary navigation device. They serve as backup.

    Primary navigation device is INS.


    Wow. So it's not the unions this time? Hard to believe.

    Just noticed this now and yes it is the unions keeping GPS as the primary function of the navigating system in planes. This is a fairly well known issue.

    There's some really disturbing videos of cops shooting unarmed or seemingly unthreatening people that you can YouTube that have surfaced recently. It seems to be an epidemic right now.

    Perhaps with the frequency of these incidents, one might conclude that this story is neither random, nor weird.

    I believe you're confusing frequency with availability via youtube old friend.

    This is a good point. More and more cop cars now have dash cams, and in some places cops are being forced to wear body cams.

    I used to take VIA rail a lot when I had projects in Montreal. Was great.

    I remember the WiFi sucking bad though.

    Cool. I ask because I'm wondering why business class is $3 cheaper than economy class for a train to Toronto...I don't get it. What's the difference between classes then?
