Re: Hobbies outside of aviation

I enjoy collecting older US Currency (Series 1981A and earlier) as well as collecting silver coins from 1964 and earlier. I also like to listen to my shortwave radio during the night as well as DX on the AM band to see how many distant AM stations I can get.

Re: When was your last MD-80 flight and how was it?

My last MD88 flight was in May 2017 on DL ATL-CAE. It lasted a little over 30 minutes or so and we literally topped off at FL230 for only a minute or so before descending. A fun flight in all.

Re: Taking a trip just to fly on a specific type of plane

As a side trip of my vacation to Mexico City in 2016 I booked RT Mexico City-Monterrey on the Interjet SSJ so I could fly on the Superjet. I wasn't in Monterrey for more than 4 hours before returning to Mexico City. Fun times!

I also did ROC-DTW-MEM-DFW roundtrip back in the days when Northwest still had a hub in MEM as well as DFW being a smaller hub for Delta (The las...

I'm curious as to why American ended the mainline flights to Charlotte again making them seasonal while maintaining year round mainline to both BUF and SYR. I understand BUF given its proximity to Ontario but ROC has a higher metro population than SYR.

Re: How the Boeing jet no one wanted became the plane airlines scour the planet for

I've flown the 717 only once in May 2002 on AirTran MCO-ATL while all the other AirTran flights I've been on were on the Diesel 9s. I remember being astonished at that time by the quiet cabin. I was supposed to fly on a Delta 717 CAE-ATL back in May but it was switched to a CRJ-200 a few weeks prior...

Back in 2002 I booked a flight ATL-MCO on DL so I could get a chance to fly on a MD-11. When I got to the gate though there was a 767-400 there (I similarly booked the flight going up on the 764 for the same reasons as the MD.) That was by far the worse substitution I ever faced.
