That's just an A318. Easy mistake to make. ;)

And that's why I don't like 4 wheeled suitcases on the ramp! Though thankfully I never had to run this far to get one..

The way the wind was blowing in Georgia over the last week surprised it did not make its way all the way to the runway! Funny though....

How long before some Nutter on here blames the passenger and declares that they should be blacklisted and banned from air travel.

Did anyone notice the guy in the pick up who was working on the ramp just drove by it like it wasn't his problem. Real conscientious employee right there.

All we need is to strap some wings, vertical and horizontal stabilizers, at least 2 jet cats, and this thing is off to the Bahamas!

Not an A319... that's the missing BBD prototype of the CRJ.

I was having a meal at one of the food courts that overlooks the ramp in the center of one of the terminals at ATL a few years ago. I saw a bag fall off a baggage cart and land right in the middle of the driving lane for service vehicles after the driver made a sharp turn. At least 30 other drivers drove right past the bag, sometimes needing to swerve to avoid running it over, and not one person stopped to pick it up or investigate it. When I finished my meal and left the food court, the bag was still there. I couldn't help to think that some poor traveler was not going to find their bag at their destination and they were going to get a B.S. excuse from the airline as to why their bag was late and/or damaged.

That looks like a more comfortable way to travel than a CRJ-200.

I've had dental procedures more enjoyable than most RJ flights.

You could at least have warned me; I had a mouthful of coffee at the time.
Now I've got a coffee soaked keyboard and a wet screen.
An inspired choice, possibly lost on some of the younger generation. Although maybe the music works regardless of whether you can remember the days of Benny Hill being chased by a posse of bikini clad girls.....

And you make a video about your ordeal and it goes viral and then you get bashed on a.net for being an unreasonable customer.
