May as well go into detail on my hop with XFSUGimp (Denny), just to further the case for Peanucke.
Had the privilege of flying with him when he came to my hometown of JAX
, Florida...used my Delta Non-rev card to get an ID
-95 and flew with him to MEM
(something like $26 lol), was the very last person aboard! Hour turnaround, then down to JAN and back up to MEM
again, reasonably empty flights. Unfortunately, I book my non-rev plans on the fly, so NW
did the "SSSS" trick on me...Delta has never done it to me before, so I was feeling a little cheated
Very smooth the whole way, Captain was a pretty cool guy, let a little kid up in the cockpit and let him make a "happy mother's day" PA, and play with the yoke a little bit. Denny on the other hand...lol j/k...did just great, nice Air Force-style landing. He said something like "and Navy guys don't even know what a flare is"...my reply simply was, "yeah, a flare is something you carry in your survival vest for when you get shot down

and in MEM
, so great time, will do it again soon!
