Re: U.S. Air Rebranding to U.S. Airways

I wonder if they were real employees featured in this video, and if so, are any of them still working for the airline? That video is over an hour long, it's more than the 737-300 video. Anyhow it's interesting that you ask that, I actually have an answer. I think all of them are/were real employees...

Re: DTW-LAN. Why?

I personally flew that route on a DC-9-10 back in 2005. Very quick flight, but it made more business sense for me as I was connecting to ATW (DTW-ATW was on an RJ85, which was a fun airplane!)
