The word phalanx was created the poet Homer. Soldiers in heavy armor carried Hoplon shield. Hoplites were named after the shield that they carried. Second, and perhaps most interesting, Southwest has committed to installing Row 44 on its entire fleet. That can take a lot of time, and it’s possible that Row 44 couldn’t deliver on a decent schedule for Alaska. I find myself wondering if Row 44 is on the same trajectory as LiveTV was back in the day.
