I would imagine SEA-BOS and BOS-SAN flights are business traveler heavy in first, so VR headsets won't be conducive to simultaneously working and taking advantage of inflight entertainment. Cool idea, but I don't see this going anywhere.Jump to post
So you are completely satisfied with an airline selling a service, that they are unwilling or unable to provide. Posters here also forget that the passenger has already fulfilled his/her part of the contract that is paid. The service and contract was fulfilled by the airline, just on a later flight...Jump to post
But, there was a unfortunate breakdown in process and procedure. There was?

Something is fishy if the cellist followed the rules, but AA chose to kick her off the plane anyway. I can't imagine we'd ever know such a thing. It just makes more sense that they screwed up rather than that they plotted against her for her seats. Who knows. How are you able to come to the conclus...Jump to post
No. That is an incorrect assumption. The Cello is 1/5 of a persons weight, and it is better secured to the seat than a person. Per pure facts and logic, it is therefore a false assumption. Aircraft seats are specifically over-engineerd to and designed to keep people in place in all directions (ever...Jump to post
From AA's own site: "If you choose to buy an additional seat for your instrument, please note that seat baggage must not weigh more than 165 lbs. (75 kg) and must meet seat size restrictions based on airplane type. " That seems ambiguous to me. If you're going to say there's restrictions,...Jump to post
If that's the policy, that's fine. Why wasn't it enforced on the passenger's previous flight? Also in terms of policy, it's vaguely and ambiguously written given, which is on the airline.

I landed at DCA around 1130 this morning and while we weren't put into a hold ATC did slow us down a bit and also gave us a small deviation to our flight plan. Maybe they spaced out arrivals because of light wind gusts and AA4635 decided to divert for fuel? They were only on the ground for ~40 minsJump to post
Wouldn't it just be more cost effective to move all passenger ops to KNQX instead? I've always wondered about this.

No. It looked like fuel dumping. It was definitely not vortices in low clouds on the clear day. DLX, two examples of fuel venting. A 5:30PM flight to Florida in the summer could certainly explain extra fuel, thanks to daily thunderstorms. Is this what you saw? http://www.b737.org.uk/images/surge_ta...Jump to post

I have no idea how to call a tower. Definitely appeared to be a fuel leak considering it was from the end of one wing on a clear sky day. If it was near the tip of the wing, could've very well been fuel being vented from overfilled tanks. http://www.b737.org.uk/fuel_tank_vent.htm Was it Alaska Air?...Jump to post

I'd want nothing to do with JFK and the NE. This storm is currently tracking to sit off the coast in the Atlantic, but if it tracks westward, this could cause significant delays in NYC.
