I'm seeing four different answers here: 1) Hotels that are encompassed into the airport terminal (DTW - Westin) 2) Hotels that are connected to the terminal via an enclosed/ semi enclosed walkway (BOS-Hilton) 3) Hotels that are right outside the terminal/ across the street (VIE - NH Hotel) 4) Hotels...Jump to post
My husband and I usually get two aisles across from each other when in coach. When unavailable, we take an aisle and window.
Inevitably, the person in the middle between us anticipates that we will want to sit together and offers to move. We always decline, as we don’t like middle seats at all.
We often yearn for the glory of First class of 30 years ago. But in 1986, they yearned for the days before as well....

You would be surprised at just how introverted most people you might think are extroverts really are.
Most religious leaders I know are introverts. But you would never think of it when you see them in action. But get them off the pulpit, and they are often quite shy.
My father was a private pilot, and I spent my childhood flying up and down the east coast in his prop.
I used to get quite airsick, and I would look out the window when we landed in places like Wilmington, NC, longing to be on the huge Piedmont 737-200’s!
I think it depends on the passenger. Some are nice about it, some are just being dicks. I remember back in 2009, I was going from JNB to IST and this woman wanted to sit in my assigned emergency exit seat because she wanted to sit with her friend that she saw when she got on the flight. I had a cra...Jump to post
I had tickets for the Concorde in 1999. Took many, man6 hours to put together the logistics. Three days before departure, my boss had an accident, and I was needed to cover. We cancelled trip. That really stung. But life continues, and I was able to get three concord trips in (all on miles) before s...Jump to post
Hi all, I'm looking at flying from YYZ to LAX later this year and UA is by far the cheapest option. For the trip to LAX, the flight I'm leaning towards includes a 1hr 6min connection in SFO. However, on the return, there are 3 different connecting options that come out to around the same price: a 1...Jump to post
What airports around the world have the shortest long haul flights? For example, BOS-DUB flights are long haul, though the flight is often under 5 hours. How do we define long haul? Let’s just say: flights that full service airlines offer proper international long haul amenities on (full meals, amen...Jump to post
I’m sitting the the DTW Delta Sky Club. Most people are respected the quiet of the club. But one gay behind me had a booming voice and was holding a FaceTime conversation on speaker phone.

There are some planes out there that have a little something special. And there are others that just seem like every other plane. I’m not talking about the interiors.

I was flying to LAX that day, and spent lots of time on the observation deck and looked at the TAP party from the concourse above!
There are many variables here. 1. Are the passengers using the F lav disabled in any way? 2. Just getting to the rear lav blocked by a service cart? 3. Perhaps the passenger really really really has to go. 4. Perhaps the flight attendant in the rear of the plane send the passenger back forward becau...Jump to post
Paid memberships and high-tier FF's Well, it’s not that simple. On some airlines, paid membership only works if you are flying that alliance that day.

Years ago, I surprised my (then boyfriend, now) husband with a weekend getaway to LAS (from LAX). At the time, HA flew the DC10 between the two cities as a tag on.
So I bought the paper ticket and presented him with the ticket jacket. Right up until check in, he thought we were off to Honolulu!
Odd that the UA Club membership didn’t grant you access. According to *A policy, paid membership in the united club grants you access:
What do you all think about public wedding proposals? I believe that these are intimate moments that should be done privately. But many have it in their heads to doing a public announcement in front of either strangers or friends is a really cool thing to do.
What do you all think?
A few tid bits: Midwest Express in their glory years... They were a cut above the others. 2x2 seating on DC-9’s (though legroom was not as generous as first class on other domestic carriers. Food service was certainly above par. New York Air. LOVED the Flying Nosh bags that were given out in flight!...Jump to post

Convictions (legal, religious, political) are nearly impossible to change. Even if you line up evidence to prove your point, swaying an opinion is rarely possible. An emotional truth so often outweighs everything else. Have you been successful? How? Has YOUR mind ever been swayed by someone else?Jump to post
My theology does not come out of new age feel good stuff. It is based on 1000’s of years of Jewish exploration. Damn shame your theology is based on 1000’s of years of ignorance, with not a jot of tangible evidence that god exists. LOL! I hear you. Perhaps my ignorance is bliss! Then again, I've ne...Jump to post
The problem I see is that most people put God into a box. Religion and religious people often refer to God in terms that diminish potential. How many refer to God as “Him”? How many expect/ hope God to respond to each prayer? I don’t believe in a God that allows suffering. But I do believe in a God ...Jump to post
I’ve said this here before, and I will say it again.
1st time you hear the shtick it’s funny.
2nd time it’s stale.
3rd time it’s annoying.
LCC’s can get away with it because they cater to many infrequent flyers that will hear it once. But legacies really should avoid it.
HP was a pioneer in IFE for us carriers. Bud it was rudimentary. How do you mean...a pioneer? They only started in Aug 1983, and I first flew on them in Dec 1983 LAX-PHX-COS.

I have been to all but Alabama and North Dakota. This takes me back to 1984/5, when United was the first carrier to fly into all 50 states.
