I was on a Delta flight years ago, seated next to someone who had an 'emotional support' Pomeranian. As soon as I sat down, that thing lunged at me with teeth snarling. The lady was being defensive and saying it was my fault for it's attitude. I got up and spoke to a FA about being reseated, when sh...Jump to post
Just a thought from my travels in Europe and with regards to KLM's recent comments of flying less for the environments sake. Could not airlines accommodate passengers through Europe's extensive high speed rail? If it'll be days to get a flight out, has this ever been an option?Jump to post

Long haul with an narrowbody is a strong no from me I'm sure airlines won't care about you flying narrowbody or not ;) If the seat is the same, same width, same pitch, same service as in a widebody, why not? There are narrowbodies with more generous seating than high density widebodies! It's just i...Jump to post

AA ended IAH-JFK in January 2014. The route lasted less than 1 year and was only 1x daily on a 737-800.
I highly doubt it will ever happen, but I'd love to see a MD-11 in an Amazon livery.Jump to post
Wild guess, but I’d imagine Houstonians are more loyal to WN at HOU than UA at IAH. Very much so when when the merger took place and jobs got moved out of Houston to Chicago. And then when United tried its best to block WN from getting the City of Houston to allow for International flights in HOU. ...Jump to post

If Delta is the loss leader for China ( in the overall interest of corporate contracts), United could use the strategy for India and start SFO to BLR; and ORD to BOM. does AA not meant to touch India? US carriers could have moved fast with Jet’s collapse. If they don’t Vistara, in a year, would lik...Jump to post
I fly Delta a ton for work and always enjoy my 717/MD88/MD90 flights. For some reason and probably more mental, I feel they handle turbulence better than the 737/A319/A320/A321s if they had to fly the same leg. Plus, I've had better luck getting 717 pilots to do high power static takeoffs!Jump to post

That does not prove your claim you need to try again. As I said, it portends. That said, they are broke, and have failure oozing out of every pore. The specifics don't matter.

Driving back from Dallas to Houston. We're hitting wind gusts around 27 mph on the ground, doing that in an SUV on high overpasses is scary enough.

They have a very successful business model and like my company JetBlue, they can't be everything to everyone.
