comment How long should it take to get a Russian passport?
and the time to get a response is actually 15 work days, not 30 days, as my own message to MID and KDMID has apparently been estimated for: 98. Жалоба, поступившая в МИД России, Представительство или загранучреждение, подлежит регистрации не позднее следующего рабочего дня со дня ее поступления. Жалоба рассматривается в течение 15 рабочих дней со дня ее регистрации.

@GayotFow, also, ` 100. В случае установления в ходе или по результатам рассмотрения жалобы признаков состава административного правонарушения, предусмотренного статьей 5.63 Кодекса Российской Федерации об административных правонарушениях, или признаков состава преступления должностное лицо, уполномоченное на рассмотрение жалоб, незамедлительно направляет соответствующие материалы в органы прокуратуры.` and ` 101. Возможность приостановления рассмотрения жалобы законодательством Российской Федерации не предусмотрена.`

@GayotFow, I have no idea, but failing to observe the limits entitles you to file a grievance; e.g. from the biometric regulations, ` 90. Заявитель может обратиться с жалобой, в том числе в следующих случаях:` ` нарушение срока регистрации заявления заявителя о предоставлении государственной услуги;` ` нарушение срока предоставления государственной услуги;` (somehow the queue wait time doesn't appear to be enumerated explicitly, but this list is not meant to be exhaustive)

comment Are governments limited in staff they can deploy to a consulate?
@DJClayworth, how is this not about travel? I'm trying to get a passport since last year, and I'm still unsuccessful at doing so, due to the poor service provided at the consulates.

Well, as per travel.stackexchange.com/questions/46679/…, there are laws and regulations in place for prompt processing; the issue at hand is that the laws don't prohibit an appointment system, and the consulates appear to be abusing such ambiguity.

comment Do airlines have to check the visa status before selling a ticket?
Yes, this is actually what has been the procedure to get a Schengen visa for Russian citizens -- you simply buy the ticket and pay the visa application fee, and you basically automatically get the visa -- you cannot get the visa without the ticket.

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
@Karlson, are you trying to claim that real time traffic is immune to someone jumping on a highway, but traffic patterns aren't?

@Karlson, rain and sun affecting traffic in a major metro area? i don't think so.

comment Travel times during peak hours in Los Angeles
@Karlson, that is not true; depending on the area, traffic patterns are very different; in the SF Bay Area, almost all highways are jammed up between 15:00 and 19:00, whereas other areas are more like 16:00 to 18:00. I'm currently in LA, I have never been here, and I have no idea what their traffic situation is like. Waiting until real time to see the traffic congestion to get to a given place on time is kinda like asking for trouble — it may been too late...
