The 757 has a very aggressive yet graceful appearance. Something no one would use to describe the baby Boeing.Jump to post

They have struggled sustaining long haul to Asia to even large markets like HKG and KIX. To be fair, almost nobody stateside has been able to make KIX work longterm, except UA via the uniquely concentrated power of the SFO hub JL can likely make SEA-KIX nonstop service work due to SEA's geographica...Jump to post

The coach lounge became more popular than the upper deck first class lounge because of the piano. From what the senior ladies I’ve flown with have told me, you never knew who would end up playing the piano. You might have gotten an impromptu concert from Stevie Wonder!

We humans come in all shapes and sizes. I feel true compassion for Flight Attendants, Police Officers, Hotel Front Desk Clerks, Grocery Store Checkout Clerks, Gate Agents, etc.Jump to post
Looks like demand is picking up.Jump to post
I’d think that’s not as much an issue these days. Anecdotally, have you had this problem at LAX in the past three months?Jump to post
Oh, the horror.
This is the reaction from some people when I go to the grocery store sans mask.
Fascinating country. I really (seriously) need to vacation there and see (hear) this for myself. Someone once told me they were on an extended assignment in Brussels. He said the chocolate was fantastic. He never mentioned the cultural frictions.Jump to post
DFW airport is the middle of the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area. It's connected by multiple major freeways (114, 121, 161, 183, 360, and 635). There are two light rail stations that terminate at the terminals (Dallas Area Rapid Transit at Terminal A, and Fort Worth T at Terminal B), a third light rail...Jump to post
Loved the 757 out of SNA. But it’s been a long time. Yes, there was a time when SNA was 757 heaven. I remember. That was probably because the runways layout would allow small aircraft not to be disturbed by 757 wake turbulence. I flew on one from JFK to SNA R/T back in 2003, when American was flyin...Jump to post

Another Azerbaijan 787-8 repatriation flight inbound from Atyrau today https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/vp-bbs#246e615b Did you say another? Yesterday, I saw a 787 (not AA) on final in to 17L. At the outer marker, they turned due west and cut across the 17s and 18s. Maybe they wanted to ...Jump to post
It appears CLT is now AA's largest hub with way more flights than DFW. I wonder why that is and how long it will continue? https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1445147 Could it be a strategy by AA that focuses on where passenger strength (anemic as it is) in the US is expected to...Jump to post

Americans are Puritans and generally don't drink much. Depends on whose paying, if I have company and what the jet lag looks like.

Boeing is indeed too big to fail and will be rescued for a number of reasons including the massive jobs that would be wiped out if Boeing were to go under...
