I was taking a quick trip for one night to Indianapolis, for an interview. A few days before I was leaving, I received an email with my flight information. I originally was supposed to be flying SYR-ORD on United, and ORD-IND on American. It was then switched to SYR-ORD-IND all on United. The night ...Jump to post
I still have a lot of credits that I need to use. We were having a few days of rainy weather, and low clouds. So, I would not be flying. I decided it would be a good time to use some credits, and do a day trip. I booked this trip two days in advance. After a little bit of looking around, I found sev...Jump to post
Great report. One of the airlines I'm applying to right now (hint, they're a startup that's based in Houston and operate out of California & soon CT) made an effort to tell us passengers aren't and shouldn't be the enemy. Really resonated well with me. Seems like a pretty basic concept, but app...Jump to post

My sister was leaving for college, and my mom was bringing her down. I decided to take off two days from my flying job, and meet them in Florida for two days. I was working most of the day. After a full day of flying the Cessna, I had a late flight out. I left work around 4:30pm. I went home quick t...Jump to post

I look forward to fly United soon
I was looking at some flights a few months ago, and came across a United flight on a 787 from ORD-IAD. The primary reason I wanted to take this trip was the 787. I was supposed to take one back in March, but missed it due to a delayed flight. The only other 787 I had been on previously, was an Ameri...Jump to post

Thanks for the TR. I was at LGA recently and managed to take a bus ride from Terminal C to Terminal D. I'll need to upload those pictures to show construction progress of the new DL terminal.

For a while I have wanted to try out Silver Airways, and the ATR. It took a while for it to actually work out. I originally had a flight booked in January, from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale. It was about 6 months ago, so I don’t really remember why I had to cancel it. I think it was some weather issue, ...Jump to post
I see you got that classic MIA hospitality. Frankly, I've never had a good customer service experience at MIA. I've encountered bad agents there with AA too. Yeah. They were all pretty rude this time. I have only flown through MIA a few times in the past, and didn't have an experience one way or th...Jump to post
Last month I took my sister to Florida for a few days, to visit a college. We originally had ourselves booked on a CRJ-200 to JFK, and then an A320 to FLL. The college ended up changing the date of the orientation, so we had to move our flight up one day. We would be going down the night before we h...Jump to post

Great report, you flew on one of our newer birds, N482PX down to JFK! I also have flown N478PX on a flight from DTW-SYR, around a year ago. 478 was actually supposed to be operating this flight also, but they switched it to 482. Do you work for Endeavor? Yup!

Thanks for the TR. Great spotting pics. Lots of changes at JFK since your last TR there, with UA now flying again and the AA/B6 codeshare reflected on the Terminal 8 FIDS. Is there a bus now running airside between Terminal 8 & Terminal 5 for the AA/B6 codesharing? Also, thanks for sharing the ...Jump to post

Another great report. Don't really like redeye flights as I can't seem to sleep on planes but sometimes they are necessary, like coming back from Hawaii or going to Europe. Redeyes aren't my first choice, but if I have to take one I don't mind them that much. But, I've don't a few short ones like P...Jump to post
I still have a lot of credits from flights that I had cancelled in the last year. So, I figured I would plan a day trip. I decided to go to DCA, and check out Gravelly Point Park.

I know I have seen several posts about this same kind of thing in the past. I have a few flights that I have taken, and don't have the registration numbers of. I have tried for a while to find them. I have gone through the old threads, and have used BTS and the ACARS data, but have not had any luck ...Jump to post
Another great trip report!... I like those dawn time-lapse slides - always amazing to watch the sun go up when flying. Why don't you treat yourself to a hotel night's stay at the other end? I feel kind of bad for you always ending up on those red-eyes! Thank you for sharing! :airplane: Watching the...Jump to post
Good report and photos. I'm not surprised by how many mask announcements were made - so many people are still not compliant on flights, that I'm sure they deal with it a lot during each of their flying days. Would love to visit Cabo sometime. Looks beautiful! Yeah. It was by far even more announcem...Jump to post
Nice TR! And your verdict about the CRJ550? Is it a real "game changer" and does it beat the other CRJs? I mean, better comfort and more space for hand luggage? Btw. I was surprised that the B738 was equipped with PTV, the A320 not - is this inconstancy the norm? I honestly didn't think i...Jump to post
Back in the fall of 2019, we planned a trip for the summer of 2020, to Tel Aviv and Amsterdam. With everything going on with Covid, we had to change the trip. First, we changed it to Hawaii for December 2020. Then we changed it to Amsterdam and Ireland for the Spring of 2021. Still with the travel r...Jump to post
I decided to take my first day trip of 2021. After looking at a few places, I settled on PDX. As I was looking at flights, I had it narrowed down to Delta and American. These were the only two airlines, that had redeye flights back. I ended up going with Delta on the way out, and American on the way...Jump to post
I love how specific the pilot was on the ATL-MCO leg. Most times they just give the arrival weather, time to the airport, and maybe the gate. Even mentioning what direction we'll be landing from is appreciated by me. He was definitely very detailed! After the flight i went up and talked to them and...Jump to post
This trip was from a little over a year ago, in November of 2019. I did all of my flight training out of Gateway airport, in Phoenix. So I was pretty familiar with it, and was used to seeing a lot of Allegiant airplanes. Allegiant uses the airport, as one of its hubs. A few years ago, I had flown an...Jump to post

It has been almost a year since I finished up my CFI checkrides. I had not done much flying in the last year. I was also looking at getting my high performance endorsement.

Enjoyed the winter weather photos with a little Florida sunshine mixed in! Is it more, or did the seats on your Frontier flight look extra thin -- how was the comfort?

I am curious as to why you would not just have driven this? It would be much quicker, and less risky due to misconnect, than a connection in CLT.
