My MCO/FLL/MIA based friends? Oh yeah, every trip. I'm completely here for your profile pic lol ... but .. Every trip? I think they may be exaggerating. I fly regularly for work, often to Florida, and haven't seen any of these issues. The fact is that the vast majority of flights (even to/from MCO/...Jump to post
I lived in North Texas for a number of years and found that the local and state police were very strict about enforcing speeding laws.
Now living in South Florida where speeding laws are not enforced unless one is really moving.

76 years old and 15 year maximum statutory sentence… should do the trick.
In FLL the Azul flight from Brazil would arrive at Terminal 4, be towed to a hardstand and then be towed to Terminal 3 for departure later in the evening.
Nowadays the flight still arrives at 4, is towed to the hardstand and then towed back to the same gate at 4 in the evening.
In the examples given, do the aircraft usually go straight to a departure gate or are they parked at a hardstand and then later moved to their departure gate?Jump to post
So have the weights actually increased? Passengers have got fatter over the pandemic? Or is this purely the extra weight of the extra fuel that's required to be loaded based on the passenger weights, if so then can it really have that much impact tankering a bit of extra fuel? Even the 50seat plane...Jump to post
I have noticed on the American Airlines website that many flight that have a long connection (over 6 hours) have a higher fare than flights with shorter connections and/or nonstops between the same city pairs.

If the United States and China started going head to head over Taiwan I wonder what the possibility of using nuclear weapons would be especially if China was losing the battle?
Of course hope none of this ever happens.
Too bad that China just can't leave Taiwan alone to function as it's own independent country and/or work with them as a strong trading partner.Jump to post
I was dragged for saying this previously but I'll say it again. ULCC's attract a class of traveler that really should not be travelling.

I've been on a plane (BA 787) that had a wing lightning hit on final approach, just as the pilots started a go-around due to a sudden wind shift.

My mind is blown at some of the capacity airlines have been throwing at Miami lately. Copa Airlines is now operating nine flights a day to Panama City! On top of the daily to Fort Lauderdale.

Can’t have two driver’s licenses and most rental car companies have your filed credit card info. I have two (2) valid driver's licenses. I carry one in each wallet I have.

Might not recommend that if renting a car is planned. If renting a car is planned, you're screwed no matter what.

Given how much AA has reduced its fleet (70 737-800s, all 757s, all 767s, all A330s, all E190s), what will be at the expense of all this planned "growth?" Chicago? Philadelphia? Washington?

AA has not "closed" their hub at PHX. Whether they close it in the future, I've not heard anything there. Regardless, I disagree.
