I'll usually fly 3-4 times a year. In the beginning I thought it was going to be the coolest thing in the world. After awhile the novelty kind of wore off. Wondering if your going to be able to get on a flight can get a little nerve racking. Especially if you're flying out of HNL. Only one way out o...Jump to post
BR715: What is with this pathological hatred you have for AA? Is it because AA got rid of the 717 from it's fleet? Legend had several problems. Number one, they set up shop on the home turf of two major airlines, American and Southwest. Don't forget that Delta has a hub in Dallas also. That means th...Jump to post
It looks like AA is starting to play hardball. If Crandall was still around they probably would have been playing rough a long time ago. BR715: I don't think LGB airport has the right to kick them out. Besides, it would be a bad business move on their part anyway. That and the fact they would get su...Jump to post
Filing Chapter 11 should only be done as an absolute last resort. The history of airlines filing Chap 11 is not good. They either end up going under anyway or being bought out. Continental is the exception. While I'm a fan of the 737NG, ordering 737-800/900 would not make any sense. All it would do ...Jump to post
In regards to MRTC, all AA 757's have been converted. AA is still in the process of putting in new overhead bins on the 757's. It will be awhile before AA starts putting in Recaro coach seats on their 757. Money is the main issue of course. The new 757's that AA started taking delivery of last year ...Jump to post
Ptica2000: Let me start by saying that I'm taking you age into consideration in regards to your comments. I remember when I was in the 16-10 age group. Like most people in that age group I thought I had everything figured out. To bad it wasn't true. If it were I'd be a billionaire. "In Europe, we ar...Jump to post
Go with AA. Sure, JB has Direct TV but as Americans don't we watch to much TV as it is? In addition you can rake up the miles with AA and go to more places than JB.
I find it interesting that you attack AA but then state in your profile that you want to got to AA's flight academy.
Cdfmxtech: Good one! Actually I don't mind the MD-80 so much. Sure, somethings are hard to get at (ACM's for example) and servicing can be a pain. However, it's a relatively simple aircraft that for the most part is very reliable. With the MD-90 Douglas took a good aircraft (MD-80) and screwed it up...Jump to post
The ADIRU is the Air Data Inertial Reference Unit. It combines the functions of the Air Data computer and the Inertial Reference Unit. Thus you cut down on the number of LRU's in the E/E Compartment. If memory serves me correctly if the GPS system loses one the signal from one of the three GPS satel...Jump to post
UDO: You failed to get my point. The point I was trying to make is that every country has skeletons in it's closet. Some more so than others. It was not an attack on Racko. This is why I usually stay out of the political discussions. It turns into a tennis match. Guess you could say that this was th...Jump to post
Racko: Usually I stay out of these political discussions. Since you speak of criminal activity of the CIA may I also mention German complicity in Iraq's chemical weapons program. The same program that killed thousands of Kurds. That is why I usually stay out of the political discussions. People star...Jump to post
I hope this guy gets either life without parole or the chair.
The only way the USA could become a country where only the police and military have guns would be for the USA to become a police state. I'm sure my fellow Americans are not willing to take that step.
Yes, the MD-11 is a beautiful aircraft. To bad it did not live up to expectations.Jump to post
On a flight last year I was seated next to a college professor who was evidently not satisfied with the service. Actually there was nothing wrong with the service she was just being difficult. Anyway she struck up a conversation with me and sure enough the discussion was about the airlines. She stat...Jump to post
The day's of the MD-90 in service are numbered. Delta is planing to dispose of there's by 2005 if I'm not mistaken. The ex-Reno MD-90's that AA returned to Boeing last year are still siting in the desert the last I heard. If you go to Boeing's web site and look up aircraft for lease there still list...Jump to post
