I think a review of UK-JPN should be way above this in terms of priority. Not if the UK just wants to pressure the US for an open skies UK-US agreement. If the US wants to open negotiations while UK leaves the common EU agreement, then this is something to make AA lobby for things going smoother Ag...Jump to post
You can always choose not to use a cellphone, if you want. If you do use one, you are using airwaves that are owned by the government, just leased to cellphone carriers. Might as well complain against those signs on the side of the road... Freakin’ signs. They’re everywhere! I say the government sh...Jump to post
As long as I don't get a notice about a missile crisis about to hit Hawaii while I'm in the East Coast, I'm fine. I could see how this could be misused...especially by an administration that has yet to shown it can be trusted. I wouldn't be surprised if an emergency text was sent to a state with a ...Jump to post

MD80 all gone early next year! LAX to TUL has zero to do with MX. Thank You! I have no idea why people on here do not think TUL can't support a nonstop LAX flight. And as I already said earlier, the previous AA nonstop MD-80 flight was not just for maintenance. AA could easily rotate plates to TUL ...Jump to post
I bet the LAX-TUL flight is, for all intents and purposes, a ferry flight to send an aircraft in for maintenance. On ORD-TUL, there is a very late arrival at TUL with a 738 and a very early departure from TUL with a 738. According to a 738 captain I know, that R/T is a ferry flight to rotate 738s i...Jump to post
That would be a painful flight in any 737. Yuk! ....or A320/321. Both would be equally terrible. On the other hand, I love flying, so I'd be happy to take either. Exactly. This is supposed to be a site for people who love flying and airliners. I laugh at the people who think they are to good for th...Jump to post

DL's teetering with SLC-TPA to less than daily is frustrating. It's a freakin' hub. Make it work and flow some passengers over it if need be! (ATL can afford it). F9 PWN-TPA will be a great route!

Very nice trip report as usual. Thanks for the great pictures! Looking forward to the ice hotel report!!Jump to post
I've had it happen a few times on my flights. It is funny when the person denies they were smoking because you can smell it on them and in the lav. Our captain had a passenger arrested after landing in Buenos Aires because he did it not once, but twice on the flight. Captain said he would have never...Jump to post

So along with sharing this video with lots of vintage plane footage, courtesy of AT&T of all companies, take a look at the baggage claim setup at the 2:10 mark. If I’m seeing it correctly, it had a carriage (like an ink jet printer) with a belt that expands to deposited luggage on a static shel...Jump to post
Hybrid is a jack of all trades master of none technique. Great in limited competition market namely one sided competition ie no premium carrier or no ULCC. When there is heavy competition it falls apart. Hybrids don’t have the CASM to compete with ULCCs on price for price sensitive travelers, and d...Jump to post
Interesting topic. I have been married 23 years. We know each others passwords for everything; email, phones, etc. I just do not see the need for secrecy when you are in a secure relationship. This person is your partner in life, there should be no secrets. Just my opinion.Jump to post

The broken bridge is going to be the major -quite literal- roadblock going ahead. It is unusable for vehicles, and I doubt trains will be allowed on it before repairs are done, which could take weeks. They might have to setup an emergency ferry service in the meantime. There is quite a lot of damag...Jump to post
I am a huge dog fan. My most recent dog lived 17 years and when she passed it was truly like losing one of the family. But I would have never put her in the stressful situation of airplane flight.

Ambassador Grenell still does not unerstand what an Ambassador can do and what an Ambassador cannot do. Governments do not take orders from Ambassadors, nor do local companies.

Re: Hawaiian- once the 717s start getting too old to keep going, couldn't turboprops be an option? Instead of 20 717s, how about 40 ATR-72s, or perhaps some future ATR that might come along in the next 15-20 years? It just seems to make sense to me- turboprops were made for efficiently flying lots ...Jump to post
She made a couple of good records, but I don't get the amount of praise being heaped on her. A lot of her stuff seems to sound the same, and she specialises in screeching with little melody.

If the F/A's are smart, they will not vote in a union. I am also in a union at another carrier. It is constantly a fight about something.

There is something strange about this though, if the seats are in the premium cabin wouldn't it be 2 and 2 seating? If one person was asked to give up his seat does this mean the male/female couple were going to be in seats C and D?[/quote]

A few questions as a European who is not very familiar with Dallas Love Field: - What does the gate cap mean? - What does "token service" mean?

AA tried DAL and decided their assets were better used at DFW so I do not think AA would add flights at DAL. I honestly think that if the gate cap went away, you would just see WN adding flights. As much as DL loves to cry foul, I don't think they would add any additional cities, just keep their ATL...Jump to post
