Re: Airliners.net Site Upgrade Announcement & Discussion

After close to 100 years of operation, Coca-Cola made the biggest mistake in its history and decided to change the formula of Coke because it was 'old', and change should occur just for the sake of change. The resulting backlash from customers who enjoyed it for what it was, and were disappointed by...

RE: Dash 8s

And whatever you want to call it, the Dash 8 -100 has an awesome 5-seat wide 'couch' at the rear of the cabin... great for sleeping stretched out in comfort, with an added bonus of being in the quietest part of the airplane.

Time to get from landing to gate - LAX the worst

YYZ often has real long waits for ground crew to show up at the gate. Sometimes 15 to 30 minutes. Frustrating when your flight lands on time, and then sits only an airplane length from the gate, unable to disembark.
