I agree with Akelley728. Teahan, SJC>SFO was merely asking us if we knew off the TOP OF OUR HEADS the answer to his question. I think you read more into his post than was intended by the author, buddy. Or at least I didn't get the general feeling of being treated as a slave. And SJC>SFO, keep asking...Jump to post
DeltaSFO: I've got to run, so I can't write as much as I'd like to. My dad is LAXFO. Talk to you later. SJC>SFO: Sorry, but I don't know the answer to your question. I'd tell you if I knew, but the truth is, I'm not extremely knowledgeable when it comes to revenue passenger rules. I know NRSA rules ...Jump to post
Some Americans live for the opportunity to sue anyone for anything. They're nothing more than scandalous gold diggers. After all, did the NWA FA set out with malice of forethought to spill hot coffee on this broad? If that can be proven, then NWA deserves to be sued. But the fact is that won't be pr...Jump to post
At UAL, we have "buddy" passes (companion passes used for friends). One of the many catches is the fact the employee must be traveling with the companion in order for the companion to ride on the employee's seniority. Is this so with DL? Also, buddy pass holders may not travel international f-class ...Jump to post

One more question though, >regarding the ID75s or such for getting in to Premium >cabins, are these 75% discount on the business class >fare? Usually an id 75 will make you eligible for first class.

You've gotta love our court system here in the States! I don't know the whole story, but the airline employee initiating the violence sounds rather unlikely to me. I'm sure there were plenty of eye witnesses. How a jury could listen to the prosecution WITNESSES and not find this son of a gun guilty ...Jump to post
B747-437B did a good job of explaining the basics of NRSA travel... so I won't reiterate. It is common for say, an employee of Airline X to purchase an ID 90 or even ID 95 on Airline Y, but this standby ticket may only be valid for y-class travel. If the employee of Airline X wants to have a shot at...Jump to post
I can't comment on ANZ, but I would avoid BA. I flew them just last summer from DEN-LGA and by the time we arrived, I was ready to get off the plane. I was cramped the entire flight, and the seats didn't feel especially wide either. The service was not anything special. I'd recommend UAL - they have...Jump to post
I don't quite understand where you come off criticizing US A333 PIT's question regarding first class. Did it occur to you that perhaps he wants the best value for the money spent on a first class ticket? It seems to me that may be the case and his intent was merely a search for advice. I certainly k...Jump to post
As far as UAL employees on DL go, it was my understanding that in order to be eligible for Biz Elite, we had to purchase id 75's. So last time I went on Delta, I think I had an id 90 or 95 which I was told would only get me y-class. When I got Biz Elite, I was surprised as I had been told that it wa...Jump to post

I've been to many military airshows.... In fact, I was at the Point Mugo show yesterday. The weather didn't permit much flying, but there were still some interesting planes to see on the ground. My favorite from yesterday was the C-17. Such a massive thing! Anyone else see the Mugo show this weekend...Jump to post
Sure, I'll put this in the humor section ~ I was unaware such a section exists. Jetguy: maybe you have the true story...who knows. As I said before, I merely saw this picture and posted it for your enjoyment. I have no idea if the story is true or any other details. Your guess is as good as mine.Jump to post
Without being discriminatory, I find that older f/a's are usually more service orientated and make for a better flight. Many young people who are f/a's today just don't know the meaning of true service.
Just my opinion...
No need for an argument.
How many miles have you flown? If you're anything like me, (I haven't ever kept an official log) approximation is fine. Most of you probably have frequent flyer programs that keep track of your mileage. I would venture to say that I'm between 1.5 and 2 million miles. I get this high number only beca...Jump to post
I've had a full fare y-class seat on BA: DEN to LGW. The service was fine; the food simple, yet edible and the seats were comfortable enough. If you can change your plans, I would recommend flying HOME in Club World. I know for me, I would rather put up with economy on the way over, and look forward...Jump to post
I'm well over 1 million miles. Probably nearing 2 million...but I couldn't say for sure. I just haven't kept track for a long time. It just depends on my schedule as to how much I travel in any given month. Could be as much as 5 or 8 trips or as few as 3. I usually average around 5 trips per month. ...Jump to post
My mother, an ex-TWA f/a recalls hearing about a woman in first class who was not happy with the condition of her baked potato. She called for a steward and just let him have it: "How could you have the nerve to serve me such a bad potato!! How dare you! This potato is terrible! This is awful!" Afte...Jump to post
