AA Domestic

Mon Sep 06, 2004 8:33 pm

Just a short one, it was a short

I flew ORD-PHL last day and it was great, after switching from
Star to AA FF-program, with every flight, I enjoy AA more and more. I was on one of their MadDogs, aka S80, and my last exoerience on the M80 was an innereuropean in a narrow tube, even me (mediocre tall) hitting my head on the wall. That flight though, I enjoyed. I do not want to talk too much about the airplane or so, but I liked the last 30 mins of that short hop. I went to the lav know. While washing my hands, the signs were switched on for descend and I could really feel the descend (FL330 for CRZ). As I am a good pax (trying to be I wanted to head back to my seat, but there was a queastion to ask the FA back there. We chatted for some mins and I was asking her for a cockpit tour after the flight. She was positive about that, told me that the pilots always love to talk about theit job and she sounded like it was a relief that someone else was willing to take the daily aviation lecture from the drivers for her. I liked her reaction. Generally, AA has not the youngest and cutest FAs, but the ones they have all amayed me with a very cordial attitude, made my last flights very pleasant.
I would actually pick a 50year old cordial FA to any young but cold one...
After the flight I took my time deboarding and then went for the flightdeck. It was nice, it was already dark in Philly and everything was shut down, but the FO turned on all the lights for me and we chatted about the flights deck of the M80. I was writing down the rego for that plane before boarding, and
then, as AA prohibits photography I was too shy to ask for a cockpit shot, I checked the rego last night and there is only 1 (!!!) pic of that bird in the database...dang....

Anyways, it was nice, I love MRTC (35" in coach...) and I like the positive attitude of AA. My experiences with them were only mediocre (all pre 9-11) and now, flying frequently and choosing AA (motly due to AAdvantage) it is great, I got so great exoeriences, including a free business class redeye transatlantig upgrade, and the coolest thing, thanks to the GoldChallenge, It takes me only about 10 minutes on my flight back home tonight to be golf member... Smile
