RE: Delta 767-400 Flying Patriots To San Diego

I wonder if the Pats will go home as a team Sunday, or be allowed to split up after their loss?

RE: Never Airline Staff In C Or F-class!

Wow, this thread is getting nasty. It seems that some are upset that free upgrades to F/C are not given to those who pay for Y while staff are upgraded. Maybe if the IRS taxed the passenger the difference from the price paid to the price of the upgraded service, no one would care to hassle airline s...

Tpaewr: <acronym title="CSA Czech Airlines">OK</acronym> I understand your comment and agree. As far as cars, I've been upgraded many times with a rent-a-car.

RE: Never Airline Staff In C Or F-class!

TPAewr, the difference is that an airline seat is perishable. As soon as the aircraft pushes, every empty seat can't be sold or given away. To compare it to going out to dinner, it would be more like arriving and being told to wait for a table. If a reservation no shows for the best table, they call...

Don't most staff, retired or others with pass priviledges pay upgrade fees to sit in the front of the aircraft as well and get there only on a standby basis? Revenue is revenue vs. upgrading a Y passenger for no charge. Besides, what does the guy paying think if his seatmate is a Y class passenger t...

The question is whether Bicoastal should pick himself and if he'll take the Chargers along with him.

It seems to me that the same mentality that won't look at our future aviation needs also are doing there best to lose the Chargers.
