DL A321 Seats Blocking Exit Door

Last night I was traveling on a DL A321, and noticed that at door 2L and 2R the seats in the row in front of the exit (I believe row 12) were partially blocking the door. The back of the seat came to approximately the window of the exit door, roughly covering 1/3 of the door and exit. How is this le...

Re: Spirit sued because allegedly of anti-semetic FA

As a person of Jewish faith myself, I think that the couple ought to say Mazel Tov and La'haim and be grateful that this abomination of an "airline" decided to ban them for life. Their existence in the travel universe just got exponentially better. Imagine if this had been an African Ameri...

Re: TSA Scanning Machines Flagging Too Many Black Women

Couple of thoughts here. - Given the opportunity, racism, among any race, can and will be brought up whenever convenient. - The TSA (Thousands Standing Around) is a total and complete joke. While the generalization certainly does not apply to all employees, many of these minimally paid, uneducated p...

American Winning Race to the Bottom

Just wondering how others feel on the subject. Was standing in the jetway about to board a notoriously cramped and uncomfortable AA 738 last week when I noticed a sticker next to the boarding door stating American was a 5 Star airline. My memories of AA from my youth were that the Silver Bird was tr...

Re: Dad books 6 flights to spend Xmas with FA daughter.

Former major US airline employee, still enjoy flight benefits as my wife is retired from a major US carrier. Absolutely no limit on the number of non rev flights permitted on any given day, week, month, or year. Back in the day, I would fly across the country just to get a free breakfast and lunch o...

Re: FAA Makes Staffing Policy Changes After Vegas Controller Found Incapacitated

Without passing any judgement on the controller, faa, or the pilots I do have one question that I have not seen addressed in this discussion. Why, when it was clearly obvious to the pilots on the frequency that the controller was "disabled", did any aircraft move? Specifically why would a ...

Re: DL Pax Told to Sit in Feces-Stained Seat

Before I get ripped into, let me first put out a crystal clear disclaimer that I find the situation the passenger was faced with to be not only gross but unhealthy. Additionally, while we have only heard one side of the customer service part of this story, based on everything we know Delta employees...

Re: Sun Country to fly tourists from MSP to Belize, St. Kitts and Nevis

After the debacle stranding passengers in Mexico, how "cheap" will the fare have to be to entice passengers to fly with them? Especially considering this is a weekly/seasonal service. For my money, I will go with the old motto..... strand me once shame on you, strand me twice shame on me. ...

Re: TSA efficiencies

I have respect for everyone at the TSA trying to do their jobs under difficult circumstances, often dealing with a public that has little patience and even less respect. However last Wed at terminal 1 at LAX I encountered the most inept, inefficient group of TSA ever. Mind you I am a retired NW empl...
