Re: American Airlines flight attendant bitten by emotional support dog

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...

Re: Lots of delays and cancellations at Amsterdam due to fuel supply failure

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?
