I flew JFK-NRT-HKG and back last month and was pretty comfortable. The NRT-HKG segment was in a -200 and had the old first class seats and pitch which was qui...

I was in Central Nebraska earlier this week, and it was reported that the President would be flying into Kearney from Andrews AFB on an Air Force DC-9 as the Kearney Airports taxiways are too narrow for the modified 747.

Any more news about the announced (9/27) startup of what will be the longest non-stop commercial flight from JFK to HKG on United? HKG appears to be becoming a major UA market - much more so than NW.

Turning around for these kids was the least SW (or any other airline) should have done in this circumstance. But I don't think SW should be commended for letting three young children get off a plane unaccompanied in a strange city.
