RE: Day Trip To LHR

Try and get a flight that lands anywhere from between 1145 and 1315. If you're flying into terminal 3, you should literally be able to blow through customs in about 2 minutes.

RE: No More E+ On UA (for *G/S And Full Fare Pax)

Hm, not sure how I feel about this. Obviously I'm not affected by it as I'm <acronym title="Air Europe Italy">PE</acronym>, but if I were * Gold on another airline it'd probably make me mad. As it stands if I'm really honest with myself, Y+ doesn't truly offer that much more over Y in my experience ...

RE: Delta To Annouce New Long Haul Domestic Product

I just flew the Widget again last week after a long hiatus, and I was incredibly entertained with the IFE that was on the 75 I took SFOATL (DL1648 on 9/8, for those who can use that info to get the tail number -- was that one of the ex-Song 75s?) I'd definitely start banking Skymiles again for domes...

RE: Football Charters

The Atlanta Falcons used a Delta 763 to get to and from their game in Charlotte yesterday. I know, because there was a bunch of screaming fans at our gate when the players got off and went to their buses.

That 763 then became DL1029 ATLSFO.
