Re: Bands You Were Too Late For

Not quite the same as fortunately they're still going, but I'd gotten into FIDLAR a while back and was at a record store in Salt Lake City, only to discover from a poster on the wall that they'd been in town the weekend prior.

Re: Most Painful Red Eye Flight of 2019?

I've done Delta's SLC-ATL redeye more times than I care to think about. It's convenient, for sure, but the times I took it, it was scheduled to leave at 11:55 PM, which means it's still 3 AM body-clock-time upon getting to Atlanta around 5.

Re: American extending life of some 757s, A320s, and 737s

Since I'm only a causal observer and follower of AA's fleet plans, can anyone who knows this stuff fill me in on a few questions. 1) What was the initial plan for the retirement for the first tranche of AA 738s (the ones from the late 90s)? What now is the current plan? 2) What has been the retirem...

Re: Anyone flown all of a large fleet?

I was close, but missed out on the first and last 717s delivered to Midwest while flying on them between 2003 and 2009. Still, 23/25 isn't bad!

I'll have to look through my records again, but I think I've managed to get about 60 of Delta's MD-88s, with a couple of repeats.

You're right that there were quite a few UA 757s that saw all four- N563UA is one example of them (and probably more than a few 767s as well).

At least when I was there in February, SFO had a few gates (gate 84 for sure, and possibly a couple of others) where the jetway gets you down onto the ramp where you then join the appropriate line for your flight and board from the ramp.

There's also EYW, of course.
