En septembre 2017, quand elle avait annulé 18.000 vols affectant 400.000 clients, la compagnie avait cédé. "Il s'agit de 41 vols au départ et 41 vols à l'arrivée", précise le porte-parole de BSCA.


"Some guys were surprised to hear from me; they didn't know that I wanted to play, which was surprising", said Werth. It's to the point where (they should) just put computers out there.

Werth had been playing with the Tacoma Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League, the Seattle Mariners' Triple-A affiliate, but stepped away from the team in June. Just put laptops and what have you, just put them out there and let them play. He finished his 15-year career as a.267 hitter with 229 home runs and 799 RBIs, mostly with the Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies, with whom he won a World Series in 2008 and was an All-Star selection in 2009. He has yet to officially retire. "I wouldn't play for the Mets", he said. "When they come down to talk about stuff like [defensive shifts]. should I just bunt it over there?" We don't want you to do that.
