Re: Golden Days at DFW

I'm not an airline employee, however, I did visit the CR Smith Museum on December 12, 2020. You'll be happy to know the DC3 is now indoors and properly displayed. You can go inside the plane too. I'm currently on a two night visit to DFW and staying at one of the Hyatt's. Today, I walked over to Ter...

Re: American Airlines Goes 2x Daily On DFW-FCO

I'll throw out a different perspective, largely based on my own experience. Besides flying, I like to cruise. The six week period of the second AA flight just happens to correspond with peak European cruise season.

Re: AA booted a Cellist from the Aircraft (did not allow the Cello on a paid ticket)

If the AA policy is so easy to understand, then how did the passenger get to her seat with the Cello? If AA knows the cello doesn't fit on a B737, then why was the passenger allowed to board with the cellos? To me this discussion is simple, even AA employees don't know their company policy OR the po...

Re: THE Problem With United FAs. Even I'm Fuming At This!

Reading the responses indicating the poor customer service of UA, especially Inflight Services. Keep in mind, from my perspective, AA is not any better. I could go on and on about the state of airline customer service in the USA. Other words, it's not just a UA problem.

Re: THE Problem With United FAs. Even I'm Fuming At This!

Personally, I wish Airlines would allow you to chose your meal beforehand. I know you can do this with special meals, but if you had the opportunity to chose an entree at the time of check-in up to about 6hrs before departure, I think it would cut back on these problems by a lot.

Re: IAH new Terminal C North sneak preview

And to think the original C1-3 is today's D1-3. I can't remember there ever being a C1, but perhaps the gates were renumbered when the IAB was built in 1989. I also can't remember where the old C FIS was--I think it was where C-24-27 are today. Does anyone have a status update on B-North and the pr...
