If the wife and I can get our vacation weeks to line up correctly, we're heading off to Myrtle Beach for a week with the kid. We last went back before we got married, so this will be our first real vacation since then. It will probably also be our last one for a while, too.

RE: Could Boeing Do A More Radical 737 Upgrade?

I had always agreed with the thought that a "makeover" of the 737 could be a hit. To me, it's sort of a compromise between bleeding edge tech like the 787 and the tried and true work on the earlier 737's. With the longer variants (-700, -800, and -900) a landing gear reconfigure could be done with a...
