501 is also the only AA delivered (as opposed to TWA delivered) MD80 left in the fleet. I'm guessing that they plan on using it in the retirement ceremonies, otherwise I'm not sure why it soldiers on; it's much older than the others. Wouldn't surprise me if they try and route the aircraft (obviousl...Jump to post
I agree. I've been saying on here for years but it's criminal how much WN is neglecting some of their former Air Tran destinations such as RIC. 20 consecutive months of record passenger numbers going through RIC and still all WN can muster is 3 daily flights during the week to ATL (2 each on Sat/Su...Jump to post
Once things get back to normal after the MAX is fixed, I wonder where future growth opportunities will come from. It seems like they are getting close to being maxed out on growth opportunities in the lower 48 (unless they get a smaller fleet). There are still plenty of domestic growth opportunitie...Jump to post
I love the WN experience and have found them to fit my travel needs. The 2 free checked bags (though I only need to check 1) is a big drawing point on me. I only travel with a small roller (could easily fit in the overhead bin) when I fly anyways but I still choose to check it for free with WN becau...Jump to post
One has to believe there was inside connections to know about the gold, where it was and paid off people (including police) to let them do it.

Some doctors also over prescribe high dosages, with the encouragement of pharmaceutical companies. Maybe years ago, but you obviously don't know how closely opiates are tracked nowadays.

You won't discuss it with me any further because you are wrong. Somebody being treated for pain (who actually have pain) with opiods at the correct dose will not become addicts. That's a fact. If they take more than prescribed that is a different situation. I'm plenty compassionate. I've lost 3 rel...Jump to post
I applaud Delta for doing this. So many people on here seem to have left their humanity and empathy at home.

So with the fleet of MD80s now only at twenty something units that means there is a ever diminishing number of MD80 pilots needed to fly these planes (some retire and other retrain etc).

I wouldn't be surprised if at leas they have to pass a "visibility" test of some sort. Like a fully black aircraft is a nono, to prevent incidents at night (at the airport in particular).

Flight engineers were taken out of the picture due to technology advances. That took us from 3 to 2. I don't see it going lower than that.

The biggest surprise to me here is that the tea isn't free, regardless of whether you have purchased a scone or not. Does BA really charge for coffee and tea on short haul flights?

No it doesn't. There are only 15 BS fares sold per flight. You do have A listers who could push the beginning of early bird to B, but usually it is in A. I think early bird is almost always a waste.
