Great review. Hopefully, someday you could upgrade yourself to F in order to get the royal treatment you deserve! That aside, I find the 757 to be the most stable single-aisle airplane in the air, your particular intermittently turbulent flight notwithstanding. Always good to see you review the net...Jump to post
I've done so many day trips, and I've probably done 4 or 5, where I flew across the country and back on a redeye in about 24 hours. I started doing it for miles. My favorite one was when I flew a Cathay Pacific 777-300 from YVR-JFK. That was a nice flight. The worst one I ever did, I started it with...Jump to post
I was going to Dallas for a week, for a class I had to take and to take my ATP written. My flights were booked for me. On my way to DFW, I was on an American 737-800 nonstop right to Dallas. For the flight back, I would be taking United with a layover in Houston. I had just flown into PBI the night ...Jump to post
I originally had plans to go with my sister on a trip for a week. But, something came up and she wasn’t able to go. I had a few weeks off before I start airline training. So, I decided to still use the flights I had and just go somewhere else. I decided to go see my other sister in Portland for a fe...Jump to post

This was from my recent trip back to New York, for Thanksgiving. I needed 1000 hours of flying to be able to start at an airline, as a pilot. My flying job ended at the end of October. I was still short 117 hours, after the job ended. For the month of November, I came down to Florida to rent a plane...Jump to post
I was supposed to be on this flight too. But, I had to cancel it at the last minute. I wanted to go on the first one, because I've been waiting for Southwest to start SYR for years. But, I'm going to be flying Southwest out of SYR for Thanksgiving next week.Jump to post
I live near Syracuse, NY, and usually just fly out of SYR. I have never flown out of ITH on an airline flight. But, i've flown into ITH as a pilot in a small GA plane a few timesJump to post

I have a class date to start training as a pilot with an airline coming up. I still need to do some night flying for my ATP. There are not many options for renting planes near where I live.

I flew jetBlue to Colombia once from JFK. The flights into JFK didn't work out with the flights to CTG, so we had to do the same thing you did and spend the night. We stayed at the same hotel too.Jump to post
I had plans to go to New York City for a few days, to see some family. When I booked my flights I originally was going to fly SYR-JFK on a Delta CRJ-900.

Really nice pics! (Especially on the second flight) Also, in November 2020, I arrived at the same gate at CLT (C3) on a Republic-operated E175 with the E170 winglets, though it was from Key West (EYW) and the aircraft was N408YX. Also, you might already know this, but AA has several CRJ-700 configu...Jump to post

I was taking a quick trip for one night to Indianapolis, for an interview. A few days before I was leaving, I received an email with my flight information.

I still have a lot of credits that I need to use. We were having a few days of rainy weather, and low clouds. So, I would not be flying. I decided it would be a good time to use some credits, and do a day trip. I booked this trip two days in advance. After a little bit of looking around, I found sev...Jump to post
Great report. One of the airlines I'm applying to right now (hint, they're a startup that's based in Houston and operate out of California & soon CT) made an effort to tell us passengers aren't and shouldn't be the enemy. Really resonated well with me. Seems like a pretty basic concept, but app...Jump to post

My sister was leaving for college, and my mom was bringing her down. I decided to take off two days from my flying job, and meet them in Florida for two days. I was working most of the day.

I was looking at some flights a few months ago, and came across a United flight on a 787 from ORD-IAD. The primary reason I wanted to take this trip was the 787. I was supposed to take one back in March, but missed it due to a delayed flight. The only other 787 I had been on previously, was an Ameri...Jump to post

For a while I have wanted to try out Silver Airways, and the ATR. It took a while for it to actually work out. I originally had a flight booked in January, from Tampa to Fort Lauderdale. It was about 6 months ago, so I don’t really remember why I had to cancel it. I think it was some weather issue, ...Jump to post
I see you got that classic MIA hospitality. Frankly, I've never had a good customer service experience at MIA. I've encountered bad agents there with AA too. Yeah.

Last month I took my sister to Florida for a few days, to visit a college. We originally had ourselves booked on a CRJ-200 to JFK, and then an A320 to FLL.

Great report, you flew on one of our newer birds, N482PX down to JFK! I also have flown N478PX on a flight from DTW-SYR, around a year ago. 478 was actually supposed to be operating this flight also, but they switched it to 482. Do you work for Endeavor? Yup!

I still have a lot of credits from flights that I had cancelled in the last year. So, I figured I would plan a day trip. I decided to go to DCA, and check out Gravelly Point Park.

Good report and photos.

Nice TR! And your verdict about the CRJ550? Is it a real "game changer" and does it beat the other CRJs? I mean, better comfort and more space for hand luggage? Btw. I was surprised that the B738 was equipped with PTV, the A320 not - is this inconstancy the norm? I honestly didn't think i...Jump to post
