DTW elaboration please ??? #2 hub for Delta. Detroit. Ah, but wanted to know how say reflection rooms are different than say common relaxation rooms. Is there a difference, if there is, then what, thank you. Probably - because the airport is government owned - someone kicked up a fuss about it bein...Jump to post

OK there's already way too much Equinox hate in this thread... :boggled: Probably from people who won't buy anything but an import in the first place because they are sooooo much better you know!

All of these hyper-sensitive people out there, just LOOKING for a reason to be offended, or to complain about something, remind me of a panel cartoon I saw in, I think, Willamette Week several decades ago. This huge, strikingly unattractive woman behind the counter of a book shop was sneering at a m...Jump to post

I will :duck: to avoid the tossing of rotten tomatoes, but I have seen FAR worse liveries in my time. The done-with-crayons American Airlines ones; Pan American post 1958, and, there was a United livery with white fuselage, red and blue stuff here and there, and four stars slapped on the vertical st...Jump to post
Parking guide? Indeed. These were not uncommon back in the day. I've seen pics of a 747 with what looks like a fender on the windshield. Once it just touches the windshield, you're in the right spot. Simple and effective. So the same as how my mum parks a car - when it hits the one in front, its pa...Jump to post
It's a lens-grinding machine. The pilot for the next leg of the trip has a different prescription from the pilot going off-duty. Thus, they are doing some adjustments to the windscreen.
Probably a parking guide, or a quote ornate device to clean the windscreen.
Any model of Super Constellation, a 1649 would be a special treat

"Maybe, but multiple times Irving gas purchased in Maine failed to perform without knocking and noticeable power loss while Shell gas purchased in Mass worked fine and as expected. We’d do this, in years past, two or three times a year." This can be explained - at least in some cases - as ...Jump to post

I'm all about the breakfast. Since McD's in the UK stopped the amazing breakfast wrap (a crime against humanity), it has to be the humble sausage McMuffin meal.

What's needed is an electric lock on the overhead bins. If there's weight on the wheels, the bins don't open. That and an announcement that the bins "are and will remain closed, locked, and inaccessible while the aircraft is on the ground" would clean up most of this nonsense. If they bui...Jump to post
Soon enough, we will hear the rumblings of some congresscritter advocating an airline equivalent of an AMTRAK.Jump to post

What was a Simca 1000 doing in the US ? I think our "regular" in France is equivalent to the "premium" in the US, and our "premium" is better than that. Due to smaller engines with higher compressions being the norm, not huge engines with low compressions. It was selli...Jump to post
What does any of this crap mean, anyway? Good question, gas = gas. Or are there different standards in the US? "Top Tier" just indicates the gas has particular additives and methods of refinement that some vehicle manufacturers want in order to keep the fuel systems happy. As for "ga...Jump to post
