RE: Way To Save USA Major Carriers

Maybe the airlines should just raise prices on tickets. No one ever mentions that. It would be nice for the race to the bottom to turn into the race to the top.

I used to work for Frontier in the ops dept. up in the tower and I have watched an A318 accidentally taxi under the bridge. I think it was 804.

The shot above just doesn't really do it for me. Unless you are very familiar with airplanes you can't even tell what it is. Don't get me wrong that is a cool shot because it is different, but the angle is just sorta odd as it doesn't show the whole plane off. The ones above in Amsterdam are great. ...
