Trip Report MCO-STL, STL-PHX/PHX-LAS, LAS-MCO

Thu Jul 27, 2000 1:40 pm

July 19th, Orlando Int'l Airport:

I arrived at Orlando Int'l Airport at about 5:00 pm, About to check-in for my America West Flight to Las Vegas, Then connecting to Phoenix. The weather in Orlando was terrible!!!!! It was one of the worst electrical storms I've ever seen. Tons of flights were delayed, and My flight was cancelled not because of weather, But of mechanical problems on the America West 757. America West sent me to the TWA counter, and TWA booked me out at 6:20 the next morning. That night I stayed at MCO's Awesome Hyatt Hotel, and got up the next morning for my flight.
_______________________________________________
TWA FL# 169
Orlando (MCO) - ST. Louis (STL)
McDonnel Douglas MD-80

Very Very Very clean aircraft!!!!! The best MD-80 I have ever flown on!!! The flight was very smooth, and the F/A's were some of the nicest I've ever seen. I give the Aircraft, Pilot, and F/A's an A+

LAYOVER:
The layover in St. Louis was great!!!! STL is one of the best airports I've ever been to!!! Its also one of the busiest I've ever been to!!! I give the airport a A+
_______________________________________________

TWA FL# 253
St. Louis (STL) - Phoenix (PHX)
Boeing 757-200

Another excellent flight on TWA!!! The flight was a little bumpy, But some turbulance is cool. Another perfect TWA aircraft!!! F/A's were also excellent, and Pilots were excellent!!!
_______________________________________________

America West FL 564
Phoenix (PHX) - Las Vegas (LAS)
Airbus 320

For an airline that I dont care for, They were ok. The aircraft was dirty, and the seats were hard on my back, and the aircraft shakes like hell on laning. But It was ok. The best thing about the flight was their was a really sexy Female F/A, and that made the flight more enjoyable.

LAYOVER:
Another great layover, Vegas is one of the coolest airports I've evern been to!!! I had lotsa time to I just walked around the airport, and took pictures of the strip. It was fun
_______________________________________________

America West FL 535
Las Vegas (LAS) - Orlando (MCO)
Boeing 757-200

Excellent aircraft, It was painted in the Arizona Cardinals livery!!! Very clean, Very Smooth Flight, and the pilots were great!

_______________________________________________

In conclusion, I think TWA is finally headed in the right direction, and I will fly them anyday!!! In my opinion they rival Delta in several different categories.

As for America West, They are ok, But they need a lot of work to become a great airline like TWA, But we all know what Continental did, So its possible.

About the best trip report i've seen on here...brief, and very well organized!   I'm not a big fan for 80 lines of every little minute/detail of the flight.

Perfect

Seems like you found what us TWA die hards have been preaching for quite a while.

I liked TWA so much I invested in it it's stock. I expect that as more people continue to find the new TWA they will find similar experiences!

There are numerous interesting threads on TWA you can find with the Search feature.

Glad you had a great flight.
