Navigating around some in

Navigating around some intense thunderstorms that hit the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex moments after we left. Our pilot later informed us that we were one of the last aircraft to takeoff before a ground stop shut down operations at DFW #american #americanairlines #md80 #mcdonnelldouglas #super80 #maddog #dallas #dallasfortworth #dfw #dfwmetroplex #metroplex #thunderstorm #thunderclouds #wingview #windowview #flying #texas #avgeek #aviationgeek #aviationphotography #travel #instagramaviation #instatravel #planes

Sum of #dallas trip so fa

Sum of #dallas trip so far.. #americanairlines flight runs out of gasoline going from #NOLA to Dallas, so we make an emergency landing after they've delayed my flight 3 hours prior. When I finally make it to Texas after a $60 cab ride that would've been $15 on #uber, I make it to the tail end of a big tasting at #texsom. Walking what meant to be a 10 minute walk to a house party get rained on, and when I get to the hotel, they give me the wrong room and have little to say to change it. #wyndam #elicfail.

Up until the 1790s there were only 25 retail shops in Cardiff. Most shopping at that time was made from market stalls. The opening of the Royal Arcade in 1858, which was the first indoor arcade built in Cardiff, significantly increased the number of shops in Cardiff. Cardiff's Victorian arcades have been attracting new shops and customers since emerging from the economic recession. Existing retailers have expanded which demonstrates resurgence of the capitals unique shopping malls, according to the landlords, Curzon, who is responsible for the High Street, Castle, Duke Street and Wyndham arcades. The area around the arcades will be affected by pedestrianisation of High Street in late 2010, to create the 2.5m Castle Quarter. This is expected to attract more shoppers and tourists to the Victorian arcades. The total length of Cardiff's city centre arcades is 797m (2,655 ft).

The AmericanAirlines Arena is directly served by the Miami Metrorail at Government Center station via free transfers to Metromover Omni Loop, providing direct service to Freedom Tower and Park West stations. The Arena is also within walking distance from the Historic Overtown/Lyric Theatre Metrorail station. The AmericanAirlines Arena has 2,105 club seats, 80 luxury suites, and 76 private boxes. The Waterfront Theater is Florida's largest theater which is housed within the arena, that can seat between 3,000 and 5,800. The theater can be configured for concerts, family events, musical theatre and other stage shows. American Airlines which has a hub at Miami International Airport maintains the AmericanAirlines Arena Travel Center at the venue. The airline also holds the naming rights for another NBA venue, the American Airlines Center for the Dallas Mavericks, which opened in 2001.

The AmericanAirlines Arena opened on December 31, 1999 and its construction cost was $213 million. Architectural design team members included George Heinlein, Cristian Petschen, Reinaldo Borges, and Lance Simon. The AmericanAirlines Arena was inaugurated with a concert by Gloria Estefan. Three days later, on January 3, 2000, the Miami Heat played its first game in the new arena by defeating the Orlando Magic 111103. As part of its sponsorship arrangement, American Airlines had a giant aircraft painted on top of the arena's roof, with an American Airlines logo in the center. The design is visible from airplanes taking off and landing at Miami International Airport, where American has a hub. The arena also has luxury skyboxes called "Flagship Lounges", a trademark originally used for American's premium-class lounges at certain airports. Local sportscasters often refer to the arena as the "triple-A". Some sports reporters on the local news stations such as WSVN have referred to the arena as "A3" (A cubed). The arena is known for its unusual scoreboard, designed by Artist Christopher Janney. Drawing on the underwater anemone forms, the scoreboard also changes colors depending on the atmosphere. For concerts in an arena configuration, end stage capacity is 12,202 for 180 shows, 15,402 for 270 shows, 18,309 for 360 shows. For center stage concerts the arena can seat 19,146. The Miami Heat has not had to pay to use the $357-million venue, which sits on $38 million of county land; the county has paid $64 million in operating subsidies. "It was never a good deal," says former Miami-Dade Commissioner Katy Sorenson, who opposed the new arena in 1996. "There are certain politicians who just get stars in their eyes and don't really think about what the real cost is going to be." WTVJ, the city's NBC owned-and-operated station in Miami, had their Downtown Miami Studios in the back of the arena from 2001 till 2011. Despite American Airlines' logo change, American Airlines Arena still uses the airline's old logo.
