RE: (Rant Warning) - I Hate Online Check-In!

I used to feel like you, and if I have time I still check-in again at the airport, but I use OLCI for the following reasons: 1. Many priority lists (upgrade, standby) are based on check-in time. Online check in can be hours earlier. 2. The more often you fly, the more often you can run late. Sometim...

RE: Americans:Do You Prefer To Fly US Airlines Abr

I used to like to board a US carrier after a long trip abroad. However, as the non-US carriers restricted miles benefits, I started flying on the US carriers (mostly AA) far more often. Frankly, I'm sick of them.

RE: The Most Iconic Aircraft Of Its Era

In the US, I think that the most appropriate icon of modern aviation is the CRJ/ERJ....

The 777, 787, A380 are all nice planes, but they are a far cry from what US aviation has become. Nor are they really a major part of aviation anywhere outside of the Asia/Pacific area.
