- You start discussing with your work colleagues which city jetblue will fly to next  

- the people on your Respected Users list are the ones you insult the most

- you realise Northwest really ARE still operating Dc9s

- you still come onto the site even though it means armchair CEOs telling you you are wrong despite all your years in the industry

- you actually start thinking over whether Air France or Iberia planes are dirtier

- you start taking photos of utterly pointless things on your flight (such as meals, menu cards, toilets, etc) that you wouldn't normally photograph just so that you can put them in a trip report

You Know You're Addicted To A.net When....

...you carry a notepad and pen when you fly to record times, reg #'s, gates, etc.

...part of your vacation includes hoisting a beer with another A.netter.

...your anecdotes begin with "This one dude I know on an aviation forum..."

...you're listening to someone drone on about something hideously boring and all you can think of are the "Cargo bay full of people who care" and the "Give-A-Fuck-O-Meter."

...you were born and raised in Texas, but caught yourself telling someone to "hawd yer wheesht." (Thanks, GKirk, you c*nt  grumpy  )

When:

-Your daily source of news stops being the newspaper, and becomes Civil Aviation and Non Aviation

-You constantly link mates to forum threads for conversation

-You start to sweat when either:
--Your flight homes delayed, measning you cant get on a.net for another hour
--The a.net servers gone down

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

The airport codes you learned for your job (an old job of mine) have finally come in handy for something other than work.

After flying you immediatly get on a.net and see what pictures of the plane are on there.
