Let's start 2019 right...can we remove Metroplex from our vernacular? It's so 70s. Let's move into the 21 century. m2c.

DTW - DFW in a couple days. IAH - DFW at the end of the week. 3E is my favorite seat. Going to miss the maddog.Jump to post
:D :D :D I can't wait to check it out. Hopefully we'll be seeing fewer low-floor buses. They're becoming a bit too common for my liking at PVG and SHA. After boarding US-bound 787s from remote gates multiple times at PVG in recent years, I agree. It's one thing to use buses for an A319, but for a 2...Jump to post
Oh, the horror. Quick - clutch your pearls and say 10 Al Gore’s. There now, don’t you feel better?Jump to post
I’d like to try that sometime. Thanks for sharing.Jump to post
If you can get a seat on flight #80, may I recommend 3E.Jump to post
Your TRs are always a good read. I often travel to Houston to sell enterprise cloud software to O&G customers. I look forward to sharing your well written story with them.Jump to post

I think I’ll pitch a new reality TV show idea called, “Passengers Behaving Badly” to some Hollywood-types. I just have to buy a few seats to/from LAS on Spirit,
setup my cameras, etc. With the increased frequency, I’ll get some good content fairly quickly.
After the Challenger accident, they buried the wreckage in an ICBM silo at Cape Canaveral Air Force station and sealed it.Jump to post

DFW to DAL? On what, a helicopter?
The obvious disadvantage is that we're all trained to ignore automated announcements and therefore more likely to miss relevant announcements. Once you've heard "The curb is for immediate loading and unloading..." a hundred times you stop listening to automated announcements. My favorite ...Jump to post
Fossil fuel energy density -- it's why internal combustion still dominates; along with a very well developed exploration, refining, and distribution network. It's going to take something much better to overcome that advantage, and it's not going to come from biofuels.Jump to post

Gotta love those classic AS commercials.
Just read on AA's twitter that with 423 buses, they're the world's largest Airbus operator! Had no clue. https://twitter.com/AmericanAir/status/1133742338931593216 Impressive indeed. They went from no Airbus to largest Airbus fleet in 6 years. As an AA frequent flyer and former Lazy B’er, I’m likin...Jump to post

They wont. Assuming youre only 15, Ive worked in this industry longer than youve been alive and AA has always defended hubs like DFW fiercely.

I'm just curious, but would AA ever consider the A220 either for a long-term replacement for the A319 or even some of the larger "regional" jets? I was really impressed with the A220 when I flew it on DL a few weeks ago; that's why I'm wondering if it'd be a good addition to the AA mainli...Jump to post

Just wait for Mt. Rainier to wake up, you will have plenty of room... Please, call it what it is, "Volcano Rainier". :eek: I remember when I was a Puget Sounder some years ago, I was speaking to a recent California transplant. He looked absolutely stunned when I referred to it as such.Jump to post
I'm struggling to imagine it, since unlike LHR or others, terminal C isn't that big. It is quite narrow (and even if it had more space pre-TSA, it isn't that wide). Very interesting. Can anyone share pictures or links that show this? Thanks in advance. This is how it worked back in the day. You als...Jump to post
Skylink is great. Though they need to double the size of the train sets and the station stop doors. As it is, sometimes the trains are packed.Jump to post

Hope the project goes smoothly. DFW17C was supposed to take about 6 months, but ended up taking 50% longer, due to weather and unforeseen issues. And they weren't replacing asphalt with concrete. Sounds like the JFK13L is going to take it down to earth.Jump to post
I see you were using the J seats provided by Zodiac. Did it rock much when your seat mate got up/sat down? I'm glad they are changing out the Z's. Very annoying.Jump to post
The project was supposed to be done the week prior to Thanksgiving, so it obviously ran a little late, but it was really on time if you know how construction works around here. 18R is up for the same treatment next year. I'm certain any lessons learned from 17C won't enter the conversation about 18...Jump to post
