Onto an MD-80. Folks, this plane is also a slum. A freaking slum. Probably older then I am. MRTC? Puh-leeze. My Tumi fits under every single seat on every real UA jet. Not on this plane! The flight to DCA was a couple hours. Where in the heck was the much-ballyhooed coach empower?

Congratulations! NOW you know the secret of why TWA went out of business. Do get a clue about the system before going on such a rant.

p.s. For the record, AA is spending $40m at STL to try and get things less slummy.

p.p.s. If you'd care to pay any attention at all, the rest of the AA fleet (the 80% that's not ex-TW) has power ports but they are not Empower. They are plain old car-style sockets.
