At the end of the summer, I was meeting my family for a week in Aruba. I was coming from PHX. The rest of my family would be going from NY. I was taking a few summer classes, and had my last final the day before I was leaving. I was taking a redeye to CLT, then a flight to AUA. AA has two PHX-CLT re...Jump to post
After taking my last CFI checkride, I was going to Florida for a few days, and then home before I start my job as a flight instructor. I booked this flight because it was scheduled to be a 757 from PHX-CLT. But the night before there was an equipment swap, and they switched it to an A321. American 5...Jump to post
This was a trip that I took a while ago. I had it written up, but never posted it. I was going home for a few days, for Thanksgiving. I had booked myself on JetBlue and United before the semester started. On the day of the flight I got to the airport around 10pm, for my 1159pm departure. JetBlue 136...Jump to post
Just a quick question as I am a little confused. You write you started pushback 6 minutes early but you have your Sched Departure time as 1604 and actual as 1621. That would be 17 minutes late. You do realize the published departure time is the pushback time and then there is the off time which is ...Jump to post
I had some AA miles that I wanted to use, and decided to go home for a few days. I booked it two days before the flight. This trip, would be the first time I flew on an AA A330. I was looking forward to trying out another AA widebody. The only other I had been on, was a 767-300. On the day of the fl...Jump to post
For the winter break, I was going to Cartagena, Colombia. When we were looking at flights, the options for flights included either a connection in ATL or MIA. Since several people in my family would be flying from JFK, we decided to just fly down the night before. Then the next morning fly nonstop f...Jump to post
I was going to be a little short in qualifying for elite status on DL. I decided to take an extra flight to make sure I qualified. I originally had a flight on another airline, booked to DEN. Then DEN-SEA on DL. My flight ended up being delayed, and I would have missed the DL flight. After calling D...Jump to post
In August I booked my flight home for thanksgiving. I decided to go with AA for the flight out, and UA for the return. I originally booked PHX-SFO-ORD-SYR. A few weeks after booking, there was a schedule change, and I switched to PHX-LAX-CLT-SYR. I was glad I made this change because on the day of t...Jump to post
Not to veer too far off-subject, but why is there a policy of requiring the exact routing on an award ticket during IROPS? Seems like an arbitrary rule that only makes things more difficult. I get it if it is a voluntary change, but why not allow them when things go wrong? (Obviously they *do* allo...Jump to post
I had plans to go to New York City in November. I originally booked myself on AA from PHX-LAX-JFK for the outbound, and B6 A321 for the return. When I was looking at flights, I noticed that B6 was going to be using the A321 for the JFK-PHX flight. This is the first time they have sent the A321 to PH...Jump to post
Seems like a typical "AA" experience, especially of out NY. There's a reason why they are far behind Delta and now getting further behind United. I prefer DL and UA over AA, but this time a lot of the delays were due to weather. I was pleased the way they allowed me to change my flights b...Jump to post

After school ended, I decided to go home for a few days. I was planning to finish up my multi engine training before I went home. I booked a flight with miles about a week in advance. I gave myself a couple extra days, in case there was any delays with the checkride. As it turns out there was weathe...Jump to post

I don't know how you could be on the go for that long, I can't sleep at all on planes.
I booked myself on the reverse route in biz in February and can't wait.
A few weeks ago, I read that CX was ending their flight from YVR-JFK. When I heard this, I decided I wanted to take the flight before it ends. I called AA and found the flight in October, was available for 12,500 miles. This also gave me the opportunity to use a DL credit that was expiring. I was lo...Jump to post

For spring break, I had plans to go CUN. After looking around at some flights I eventually settled on AA on the way there, and DL for the return. I was taking a redeye to MIA, and then to CUN.

Nice trip report and pictures. LO has a decent-sized operation at TLV (flights to Gdańsk, Kraków, Lublin, Rzeszów, Warsaw–Chopin, Wrocław). What was the purpose of your trip? Visiting family, tourism, etc.? An announcement was made that beginning 30 minutes prior to landing, all passengers would ne...Jump to post
Great report. Very detailed. Thanks for posting. Delta’s product on that 777 was disappointing. Not even a choice of pretzels or nuts vs the Biscoffs with the first beverage service. Not everyone wants a cookie with their cocktail. It was not the best DL flight i have been on. The person's TV next ...Jump to post
Nice TR... A chocolate and drinks on an 3+hrs on LOT is disappointing, as well as the non IFE equipped A321 on a 4+hrs flight on LH - especially for *A and a 5* carrier. Next time swiss A330 or B777 to TLV, with meal service and IFE! Way better to go! Yeah, the LOT flight was nothing special. The s...Jump to post
In July I went to Israel and Poland. I was looking forward to this trip. It was going to be my second time going to Israel, and my first time in Poland.

For spring break I was going to Europe. After looking at a few options we settled on AMS. I had originally booked a DL flight from JFK to AMS via DTW. Later I booked SYR-JFK separately.

I had a 3 day weekend in January, and had plans to go to NY for the weekend. I was originally supposed to fly on a DL 717 and 757-200 through SEA in the morning. I needed to switch to a redeye, so I ended up on a E175 and A330-200 through LAX. The new concourse in T3 had opened about 10 days prior. ...Jump to post
In February I discovered that a credit I had for a JetBlue had expired. I called JetBlue and was able to get the credit extended for one week.

I avoid SN as much as I can in Europe. I’ve not had one single flight with boarding or arrival on time, the 320 cabin with the open galley looks like a true bus, they offer short connection times which they hardly make and get you stuck. At one point I had a flight from LIN to BRE via BRU and becau...Jump to post

On this flight everything was for sale including water. Sad to see that SN is getting more and more low cost - even on the longer flights to Israel, Egypt and Cape Verde).

Am I correct that the legroom is tight? Was it hot in Naples? I assume you went in July? Was it crowded? They say not to go in July / August but that is the best weather.

This was my second trip to Italy, the first time I had flown Delta to MXP. This time we would be flying into Naples. The only nonstop from the United States to Naples is on Meridiana.

Part 1: In the beginning of April Spirit started service from Sky Harbor to Los Angeles. I had never flown Spirit and decided this would be a good day trip to try them out.
