This trip that came together pretty last-minute. After Georgia finished off a comeback win against Ohio State, we had 4 tickets to the national championship game in Los Angeles. I took a gamble with part of this. From the beginning, most airlines were asking well north of $1000 to get to Los Angeles...Jump to post
A return to the Virginia Thanksgiving, my favorite of trips on my favorite of holidays. We haven’t done this since 2019, so it was nice to be back for an extended stay. Our trip up there started early in the morning on Monday November 21. I used one of my Delta Amex companion tickets on my parents, ...Jump to post

It seems like you make a lot of trips to Chicago. Is it for work, do you have family there, or do you just enjoy the city that much? Partially a coincidence, and partially a city I really enjoy. For whatever reason, Chicago is usually a pretty cheap city to fly to from Atlanta, so very often my new...Jump to post
I'm not a big spender by any stretch, but credit cards are a game for me maximizing points and value. I carry:
Chase Sapphire Reserve
Chase Freedom Flex
Platinum Delta Skymiles American Express
JetBlue Mastercard (the no annual fee variety)
Seems to be a good mix for me.
This is a nerd confession. I actually made a flow chart years ago describing my booking process. You can tell it's a little dated. My new priority these days is avoiding 737 MAXes at all costs.
This is turning in to an annual tradition. Our old bowling buddies who have since moved to Missouri and Virginia were bowling the USBC national tournament again. This was more or less a business trip. It was sort of a messy booking. My brother and I were on one ticket on my SkyMiles Amex companion p...Jump to post

Way too long of a flight on any version of the 737! I already go out of my way to avoid 737s on short flights because they're so loud and uncomfortable.

I have another trip in a week. I guess I should get cracking on this report. Thanks to a tip from someone here on Airliners.net, I learned that Delta was running their brand new A321neo between Boston and Atlanta on its downtime between San Francisco runs. Turns out I could have made this trip on an...Jump to post
The whole reason I took this trip was to fly the A320neo. Mission accomplished. This was Monday June 6 to Wednesday June 8. I more or less treated this day like a work day with waking up and everything, which is a great way to celebrate your first Monday off for the Summer :rotfl: https://i.imgur.co...Jump to post
For reference, this trip was Friday May 13, 2022 through Sunday May 15, 2022. I have not seen the Virginia segment of my family since Thanksgiving 2019. Suffice it to say, it has been too long. This was a good opportunity. My brother was in Washington all week for a work conference, and was planning...Jump to post
I’ve never thought of this before. The longest string I can come up with is 12 in a row over the course of 2020 and 2021, and nothing else in my life comes close. I went: 717-200 (ATL-MYR - Delta) CRJ-900 (MYR-ATL - Delta) ERJ-170 (ATL-IAD - United) 787-10 (IAD-LAX - United) 737-700 (LAX-ATL - South...Jump to post

This was me flying just for the sake of flying, although I did score a new aircraft type with the A220-300 on this trip. This was Tuesday April 5, 2022. For the low price of $105 on Delta and 5600 TrueBlue points, this seemed like a fun little itinerary for not much money. https://i.imgur.com/y1jBoI...Jump to post
The main reason for this trip was to catch another Airbus A350, but just doing ATL-DTW-ATL was very expensive. It was significantly cheaper to book a round trip to Chicago stopping in Detroit on the way up, so that’s what I did. I’ve been to Chicago a million times, but I don’t care. This was Wednes...Jump to post

I’m really glad I blew 30,000 SkyMiles to take that flight.
Interesting subject that I’ve never really thought about. My shortest widebody flight was ATL-MCI and back on a pair of Delta L-1011s. I guess that would have been 1994-1995. I was pretty young, and don’t remember a ton about the flights. Longest narrowbody flight depends on if we talk time or dista...Jump to post
I really hope not. Like a previous post said, it's nice to have that safety net of an airline that doesn't fly the type. That, and I prefer to fly on aircraft that don't make a habit of nose diving themselves in to the ground. They're going to have go a lot of years incident free before I'll even th...Jump to post

Whenever I fly the MAX I make a point welcoming my passengers on 'this 737 MAX 8/9 aircraft.' Not one passenger has said anything, ever Opposite of my experience.

Flashback to late 2019, an old bowling friend who has since moved to the St. Louis area asks if my brother, my dad, and I would like to bowl in the USBC National tournament in June 2020.

Another week, and another quick trip. This big circle was done on Thursday June 17, with the mission to fly Breeze Airways for the first time. Since they don’t come anywhere near Atlanta, I had to travel elsewhere. I tried quite a few combinations of cities before finding a suitable schedule and dec...Jump to post
Correct, most people wouldn’t even know or care what type of plane they were on let alone who previously operated it. If pax perceptions were really an issue the MAX would never have flown again but this is not the case. I noticed flying a MAX with Southwest a couple weeks ago that the crew did the...Jump to post
I don’t know why you guys assume in PR that DL would announce the original the source of the aircraft.
