Which runway to which terminal? Depending on your luck, there are some pretty bad combinations or some really quick ones (literally took less than a minute once)

I feel like that's a short taxi compared toDFW

27mins actual taxiing to T5

@D1 DFW has some pretty bad ones too -- 17L to Terminal B in particular takes you on a roundabout path from the SE-most corner of the airport to the NW-most terminal.

@op are we on the same flight?? Going on 25ish minutes over here. AA from DFW

Nah I'm on international arrival

@OP, traveling on a Tuesday?

Coming from training. And jealous of that international training.

It’s ok to have a long term thesis that you’re not buying during this crash. Don’t try to call the bottom - wait for the bullish trends to emerge and then buy. I think uranium, battery materials, and ag will be multi-year winners, but I’m not invested in any of them now because the charts look like death. They’re on my watchlist and I look at them every day. Patience trumps conviction.
