it wasn't even worth free.

from the american airlines american way magazine, may, 2010, page 88:

The use of still and video cameras, film or digital, is permitted
only for recording of personal events. Unauthorized photography or
video recording of airline personnel, other customers, aircraft
equipment or procedures is strictly prohibited.

in other words, take all the photos you want, just not of other
passengers, the flight crew, the cockpit or the galley. if asked to
stop, then you must stop. if you don't, that's not following flight
crew requests, which is an entirely different issue.

other airlines may be a little different with the specifics, but not
significantly.

There haven't been tolls there for at least 20 years.
I 75 only has traffic when I am short of time to make the New London ferry

you don't have to give his name, just provide citations, case law, etc.
to back it up.

anything at all, other than 'he's famous and he says so.'

but you won't, because you can't.

Whoever it is assigns these names has a quirky sense of humor. I won't
even begin to explain a girl named "Little Beaver."
