Emirates To Allow Computer Desktops On Board Its Passenger Planes — For A Price.

IMG_9985DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The United States has announced a ban on all electronics larger than a standard smartphone on board direct flights out of eight countries across the middle East.

Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest international airport, has begun implementing the ban which also covers all electronics sold at Dubai Duty Free, Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths told local radio earlier this week.

Governnment-owned Emirates operates 18 flights daily to the United States out of Dubai.

But Emirates has set in a place a viable option for passengers who have to use their computers during flight.

Since the U.S. ban only covers laptops and tablets, passengers can bring a desktop computer on board, but with additional cost.

In order to be able to bring a desktop into the cabin, passengers must purchase two full-priced seats, one for themselves and the other to allow for space to set up their desktop.

Up to four desktop pieces are allowed on board: a CPU, monitor, keyboard and mouse.

The new option is available in the main cabin.  The option will not cost extra for First Class passengers.

Hawaii Seeks To Ban Donald Trump From Visiting The State

HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – Don’t mess with Texas.  But don’t mess with Hawaii either!

Unnamed sources close to The Adobo Chronicles revealed a very serious plan by the Hawaii State Legislature to issue a travel ban against U.S. President Donald Trump.

The impending move follows a decision by a Hawaii federal court halting the implementation of Trump’s revised executive order imposing a travel ban on certain Muslim countries.

In retaliation, Trump supporters have launched an online campaign urging a boycott of the   Paradise state.  The campaign uses the hashtag #BoycottHawaii.

Well, a retaliation deserves a corresponding retaliation, hence the proposed travel ban against Trump.

In a draft joint resolution by the Hawaii upper and lower chambers which was leaked to AdoboChron, Trump will be barred from flying into any of the islands’ commercial and military airports.  If Trump manages to land in the islands, he will be taken into custody and jailed in a special maximum security prison cell built inside the Animal Quarantine facility in Aiea on Oahu.

As for Trump’s International Hotel in Waikiki, the state government is reportedly planning to sequester the property and put it up for sale to the highest bidder.  The bidding will be open to individuals and groups of all nationalities and religious faith — Japanese, Chinese, Arabs, Muslims, Christians, etc.

Donald Trump To Supporters: #BoycottHawaii A Huge Mistake

HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – There is a growing movement among supporters of President Donald Trump to boycott the Paradise islands of Hawaii.

The movement, represented online by the trending  hashtag “#BoycottHawaii,” came just days after a Hawaii federal judge in Hawaii issued a sweeping freeze of President Trump’s new executive order hours before it would have temporarily barred the issuance of new visas to citizens of six Muslim-majority countries and suspended the admission of new refugees.

In a 43-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Derrick K. Watson ruled that Trump’s  order was meant to discriminate against Muslims.

But instead of being happy about the boycott movement, Trump criticized his own supporters saying that what they are doing is a “huge mistake.”

“Obviously, these supporters have never been to Hawaii, especially on the island of Oahu.  Otherwise, they would have known that I have a Trump International Hotel just a stone’s throw away from Waikiki Beach,” the president lamented.

“The boycott movement is hurting my business,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, upon learning of the the #BoycottHawaii movement, Native Hawaiians and residents of the islands gave a huge sigh of relief.  Their response? “Mahalo (thank you) for not contributing to polluting the natural beauty of our islands and the Aloha spirit of our people. No offense to us!”
