Your Favorite/Industy Changing/Etc. Past Threads

Wed Apr 24, 2013 11:23 pm

As a long time follower of this forum, I often find myself searching for and reading through old threads on industry changing events, official merger announcements, personal favorites, etc. Which got me wondering, what historical thread stands out to you the most? Whether it was a positive, negative, exciting, bland, interesting, an industry changing event, etc., what would you choose? Another way to phrase it, if you could print out 1 or 2 threads and save them forever, while losing all the other past threads, what would you choose?

I'd have to choose these two:

As a MN resident, this thread regarding the official NW/DL merger announcement always catches my attention. It's pretty funny to look back at the comments.

DL And NW Have Announced The Merger

Also, as a 787 fan, I found the grounding of the 787 to be a very interesting event, and an influential event for the industry.

FAA Grounds 787

So, what do you choose?

If there was only one I could keep for ever it would be:
