Re: DL angers pax at JFK

My take is that the rules are too lax for delays/cancellations for the airlines. Load factors are so high that cancellations can mean multi-day delays. This leads to the behavior of delaying a flight practically in perpetuity... if you were on an afternoon flight and its delayed to the next day, as...

Why is this on the A321n and not the A320n? A321 has hairdresser engines, like the A343. So when you add a big ass and powerful engine on it, the consecuence is increase of thrust and AoA.
