I don’t think I’ve ever had to remove my shoes with pre check, with the exception of when I wear steel toed boots to the airport. Also, your germaphobia is pretty misplaced. I’d wager good money that the floors of an airport colonize fewer bacteria than the light switch in your house or the phone in...Jump to post
I have a longggg layover in SFO this week. Is there anywhere on the airside of the airport to do some spotting? A viewing deck? A well-positioned window? Would also be satisfied for a location to a heavy dose of wide bodies. I'll be going into and out of T3...but all the terminals are connected...ri...Jump to post
Once again, I prefer DFW as my entry point into the US. It is much easier than LAX. An old colleague from the Chicago office is in Sydney now, he chose to go through DFW as well as its much easier to transit through. Your constant restating meaningless stats to me is not going to change my percepti...Jump to post
Either RSW or EVV. This July I'm going through DFW again to ORD. Oh yea well if you're going to RSW or EVV that makes sense...but ORD...¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Easier transit and less hassle as stated before. AA makes it easy to get to ORD from DFW and it's a shorter flight than from LAX. But there are 12 LAX-OR...Jump to post
Nothing. Sounds like the flight attendant is already documenting it.Jump to post
AA. But for me, the fact of the matter DFW is both easier to transit through and more convenient as DFW offers a non-stop flight to where I need to go. LAX does not offer that, with any carrier. Ah. Where are you headed? Either RSW or EVV. This July I'm going through DFW again to ORD. Oh yea well i...Jump to post
Last December. DFW is much easier. Sorry if you do not see it, but it is what I see. And what I see from other American expats here in Australia, they also prefer DFW over LAX. This is commonly brought up in a group I am a member of. But which US carrier are you flying when you connect at LAX? AA. ...Jump to post
For me, DFW is much easier for rmuch of my final destination, either RSW or EVV. One flight out of DFW. If I go to LAX, that would be two flights, which is not what I want. But I've flown via LAX and DFW, and DFW is much easier for transit. When was the last time you connected between AA/QF at LAX?...Jump to post
I vote DFW, as said in the first reply, it is so easy. Just get on one of the automated trains to the terminal and that is it. I've done itva few times and loved it, no stress or pain. Connections through LAX, stress and pain. I'm doing SYD-DFW again in July. But on my return leg I opted SFO-SYD to...Jump to post
I quite like SAA, but they won't take care of your 747 or A350 fancy. However they've got decent connectivity throughout Europe via Frankfurt, Munich, & London. You can even catch a disappearing bird in the A346.Jump to post
ABQ ("Albuquerque International Sunport") -- but they'll have service to Guadalajara starting this summer.Jump to post
Irrespective of whether he showed up for 1st flight or not, be must be allowed to board 2nd flight as long as he paid for it Most carriers (AA) included, will automatically cancel your 2nd leg if you fail to show up for the 1st.

How did this happen? Is he telling the truth? Did AA really lose track of him?
SEA’s rail link you can walk but it’s like over a mile. It's about 1/4 mile on a covered walkway... 5 or so minutes. The bigger problem for SEA is that the light rail is a single line and it really only goes north (one stop at the south end of the airport), so unless you are on that line, it's not ...Jump to post
This sounds like it really shook you up, but the policy is clearly stated on their website. It literally took me 15 seconds to find this information. It's unfortunate you went through this, but the information is plainly available and ultimately this falls on you. Also, hashtags don't work on here....Jump to post

Reminds me of the polar vortex of early 2014, during which I had the misfortune of passing through ORD. All flights except for a select few operated by larger aircraft were cancelled, meaning I was stuck in Chicago for 2 nights. Airline employees were telling me that fuel freezing was one of the re...Jump to post
Mind you ... with the new more expensive ticket. While still nonrefundable, you can change it to a low fare on another flight and get the full residual as a travel credit. Would you mind expanding on this? I realize you can change to a cheaper fare, but not necessarily a cheaper fare class , right?...Jump to post
LAX uses remote stands regularly for international widebodies as TBIT doesn't have enough gates, especially during the midnight rush and afternoon arrival bank. Kinda sorta. Technically you get bussed to these, but there's that little micro terminal they take you to, then you board via jetway. It's...Jump to post
At LAX, AA will occasionally park at remote stands, deplane you via stairs, and bus you to the AA terminal. I did this on a domestic 787 from ORD last year.
Also the AA regional terminal is effectively ramp boarding for their E-Jets
- The NEO was much quieter than the CEO as a passenger. I really enjoyed the experience and didn't previously realize how pleasant a quieter ride can be A32x CEO has CFM, IAE, and PW engines. A32x NEO has CFM and PW engines. Which engines are you comparing? Interesting question. I rode the F9 A320n...Jump to post
NK recently extended their schedule to S19. Here's what they'll be doing out of SEA next summer as of now: -LAS 4x/day, 3x A320, 1x A321 -ORD 1x A320, down from A321 last year -DTW 1x A320 -DFW 1x A320, up from A319 in S18 IIRC -IAH 1x A320 -BWI 1x A320 MSP and FLL are axed.

I'm wondering what people think regarding flying the a32x NEOs vs the CEOs and 737 MAX vs NGs from a passenger (or pilot?) perspective.

A lot of Black Friday sales are geared towards gifts for the holiday season. Airline tickets don't really work so well as a gift, generally speaking.

KXAN is reporting a new domestic carrier will be announced Wednesday 11/14. NK? I think that it will likely be NK starting service out of AUS because AA, DL, UA, WN, AS, B6, G4, and F9 all already serve AUS. The only other possibility I can think of is HA starting service out of AUS to Hawaiian des...Jump to post
I'm surprised it's taken this long to get a DAR-LON flight underway. (But, I know that Air Tanzania didn't have any long-haul metal until this summer.)

This flight is now operated with a 77W. The 744 hasn't operated it for quite a few years. There's an occasional triangle TPE-LAX-SFO-TPE, which is less than daily, and it is definitely still a 744. I saw one literally yesterday - this flight: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/CAL5107/history/2018...Jump to post
Very hard to put a number on it, but there's good reason to be pessimistic. Typically, I'd say there's a 95%+ chance of your booking plane matching your actual plane. However, Delta began quietly pulling MD-90s from their fleet last year and it has continued through this past summer. The fleet will ...Jump to post
If you're cash-rich enough to pay for business class out of pocket, I'm surprised to see you wringing your hands over a few hundred dollars. I'd just pay to fly out of IAD and avoid adding 4+ hours to my journey. Time is money, after all.Jump to post
Sorta depends on your priorities: - Amenities: I tend to prefer MSP -- I find it a very comfortable place to spend a few hours in transit. Lots to see/eat/do/drink. - Delays/Cancelations/Weather: ATL is probably marginally worse than MSP in terms of delays, but there are also 4 daily ATL-CDG flights...Jump to post

Does anyone know the percent of layovers that happen at different airports in the same city? I'm guessing this only occurs to a tiny, perhaps microscopic, number of travelers.Jump to post
P.S. Just on a side note - the OP only talks about "one-seat ride". In another word, I guess it DOESN'T necessarily have to be train? So I guess something like LAX Flyaway Bus can be included also? True, busses are allowed too however in my opinion trains are better. A bus has a limited c...Jump to post
