RE: Anyone Taken A Flight Due To The Aircraft Type?

Most of my itineraries are based on aircraft type where I have a choice. My first time on a 777, I extended my connecting time in <acronym title="Denver - Stapleton International (DEN / KDEN) (Closed), USA - Colorado">DEN</acronym> to get one of the first ones back to <acronym title="Los Angeles - I...

RE: "Airport, 1975" - The Critics Crash It!

Thank you for sharing these reviews. They are funny. And thank you for the fond memories they bring back. I remember seeing the movie 2 or 3 times in the small town theater where I grew up. I was only 14. Just a small correction to your post, the original route for Flight 409 is <acronym title="Wash...

RE: 10 Reasons To Be A Flight Attendant

This is coming from a former F/A (MALE) with the original Frontier: 1. Terrific people to work with 2. Flight passes 3. Don't have to take the work home with you 4. Varying schedules 5. Great training that can be used outside the airline (language, first aid) 6. Making a kid smile 7. The teamwork 8....

RE: Cleanest, Dirtiest Planes?

They fly B-1900's out of <acronym title="Denver - Stapleton International (DEN / KDEN) (Closed), USA - Colorado">DEN</acronym> as code-share commuter service for both United and Frontier. Its unfortunate as they ...

RE: DEN Considering Backtracking On F9 Gates

It is interesting to hear of all the talk of expansion at DIA - the airport that was supposed to be big enough for a long time to come. When DIA was being planned, Continental still had a hub at Stapleton, and the design of DIA was for that to continue in Concourse A. By the time DIA was finished, C...

RE: United Low Cost Ambition With 40 Aircraft

Shuttle by United, later the United Shuttle, was not as unsuccessful as many believe. When started up, it was originally intended to answer Southwest's expansion in California. While it did not surpass Southwest in that type of passenger, United found an unintended benefit - the Shuttle became a low...

RE: Pic Of AA 747 Cabin

Dan:

I may be corrected later on, but in my years of following airlines, I don't think AA ever flew 747's. Their jumbo fleet in the old days was the DC-10 (now MD11).
