I find the success of BOS-HNL a bit surprising. Growing up in SEA, Hawaii was it for those seeking warm beaches and such. The western Mexican destinations (Cabo, Mazatlan, PVR, etc.) were also popular destinations, but places like CUN generally weren't mentioned often by folks up there, presumably ...Jump to post
I would have prefered something like they do on Star Tours at Disney Parks. How about Darth Vader force choking a smoker?
The amount of shameless blatant racism in this thread is incredible. To all Chinese people who are reading this: Please, don't believe that all Westerners are like this.

For a moment let's forget about whether you, myself or someone else likes the idea and the emotions of the argument.

A few quick points - 1) LAX was a mess even 10 years ago when Uber/Lyft weren't there. 2) Uber/Lyft only made it worse with passengers moving from shared ride vans to Uber/Lyft in droves. 3) If you really see, Uber/Lyft ARE personal cars; people like you and me registering with Uber/Lyft and using ...Jump to post
Below is how Boston Logan does it. I really liked it vs the total CF I dealt with at EWR a month earlier. EWR has a similar system to LAX's current system and its a complete CF x 10. https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.flyertalk.com-vbulletin/2000x1504/img_8552_e8b8071d95d8365fc7fecf38416f847357d617e4....Jump to post
Thank god. I knew there was a problem when I was stuck in the hotel shuttle and FlyAway and every single car around me had a uber or lyft decal on its windshield.

Sounds like things are going better at LaGuardia than at DIA. I mean at LaGuardia they are building brand new terminals all the while continuing to run the airport.Jump to post
YYZ has a Goodlife Fitness branch, although you have to leave security to get there.

Will they eventually renumber the terminals so they are consecutive or are the current numbers going to be kept?Jump to post

I guess you've not heard of Koreatown, Thai Town, Filipinotown, Little Saigon, Little Cambodia, Little India, etc. All seem closer to LAX to me. When it comes to distance, perhaps. However when it comes to ease of getting to the airport, Ontario might actually be more convenient. All of them are mo...Jump to post
It's hard for me to understand why some people have such a hard time ever thinking ONT will be successful. It's catchment area encompasses way more than the Inland Empire including the San Gabriel Valley and North OC. Also, the IE is way different that it was 20 years ago with many upper middle cla...Jump to post
This isn't surprising. ONT's fortunes like the rest of IE is heavy tied to how the economy is doing. When the economy is booming, the IE and ONT is the next best thing. Come a slowdown in the economy and now its the worst thing to happen to America. It's the same story repeating itself.Jump to post
First, let me stipulate that no flight attendant should have to endure what this one did, and BR ought to ban the man in question.

And Honestly, to me at least, the one thing that’s even worse than unkempt uniforms and bad hygiene/grooming, is seeing FAs smoking their cigarettes at the airport bus stops.

Well with UA deferring and changing their A350 order, I wonder if Boeing might be working on something like AA with UA as well.Jump to post
Well I guess the next logical step would be for a 787-10ER. Which would require a lot of really expensive re-design and re-engineering: wing, fairings, engines, MLG. And for how big a market? Who knows. Look what happened after Boeing launched the 777-300ER and with only 10 firm order from Air Fran...Jump to post
