Re: Delta apologizes to Passenger over cops being called.

I'm glad Delta apologized and I hope that employee gets what she deserves. At no point in that video did she ask the pax to leave the office, and then calls State Police to remove her for "refusing to leave"?! That's insane.

Re: Delta joins United, JetBlue in raising bag fees

Well, I just booked my first Basic Economy ticket on AA, and it is a CONSIDERABLE difference in fare. $60 LAX-ORD. Regular Economy is $384 (OW fares) So maybe, at least sometimes, there is something to the BE fare bucket. https://i.imgur.com/xOCHsKr.jpg Depends on how you look at it. I also think t...

Re: TAP to add 15 new routes, 3 from OPO

Sure, the regular NEO is good for that route. The problem is that TAP's regular NEOs are configured at CY216 seats with the usual eurobusiness section (blocked middle seat), which is not acceptable for TATL since TAP is not a low cost operator. Their upcoming LRs will have only about 175 seats and ...
