Jetblue is hardly flying half full 320s' to ROC. Rochester is still my hometown, and I was just there 2 weeks ago, and Jetblue is doping very full with very high load factors. Why?, because Rochestarians have been feinding for an alternative to US Airways dominance high prices. As far as driving 60 ...

RE: Who Here Lives In Rochester Ny?

I'm another Rochester native. I grew up in Fairport, but moved away in 1995 as I joined the Air Force. Overall, I think Rochester has a really nice medium size airport. It's just under utilized. I was in Rochester for the first 2 weeks of September, but flew into BUF. I see alot of similarities in t...

RE: Any Prdictions For Future Transatlantic Gateways?

Savannah has no where near enough traffic to warrant a flight to Europe. It's a relativly small city as well, with a population of 160,000, so passangers wishing to fly to europe will always have to connect in Atlanta or at another airlines HUB. I have spent much time at SAV, at any time of the day,...

RE: Which Airline Hub Has The Best Connection?

I just went through MSP twice, and found it very easy making my connecting flights. I am also one of the few who have no problems with DTW. I would also say PIT is decent as well.

RE: I Am Shocked By The Way People Dress For Travel!

If someone is worried about how another person dresses for a flight, they have way too much time on their hands. All I know, is that if I'm gonna be on an airplane, I'm gonna be as confortable as possible. Personally, I'm more concerned with hygien and conduct.

RE: JetBlue- Today Is The Day!

Aug. 30th I am going on leave, back home to Rochester. To bad I am flying into Buffalo. I got a roundtrip ticket from SMF to BUF for $198. That beats $460 or so to ROC. I got lucky finding a good fare like that. Either way, I will have to make a trip or two to Rochester International, to get a few p...

RE: United DC-10 Emergency Landing At SFO

With all due respect, every airplane has had problems. The DC-10 has gotten a bad rep due to highly publicised inccidents. The way I see it, is if the plane is in service, and has been in service for as long at the DC-10 has, I have no problem flying them anywhere in the world. You need to look at t...

Use Of Portable Electronic Devices In Flight

I have a question, that I was hoping someone could answer for me. While on domestic flights, I have never had a problem using my walkman or diskman in flight once above 10,000 feet. But, on an International flight on Korean Airlines when I was on leave, I was told I couldn't use my diskman at all. W...

Jetblue In ROC

I heard Jetblue will start service to Rochester New York sometime this summer. I can't wait. I will be nice to have a good lowfare airline serve my home city. I just might be able to take leave more often and head back home now.
