Fist we have CLT where PREBOARD... (People who need assistance down the jetway) has just been called.....



Next we have PHX. Flight to MCO... THEY HAVE NOT CALLED ANY ZONES YET...... The door is not even open...



And you all thought the Breezeway was bad.....

There are some gate lice waiting in the breezeway lane for MSP-PVD (delayed for another 30 minutes).... And, they all have FO tags (3 total, 1 is even a US Silver)

I've never been in there. Do they decant the Franzia, or just stick a straw in the box?
You think the frat boys running US would spend money on straws?

This is one of the former NW clubs.. This roach must have visited from US and was so astonished to see a TV, that he had to take if for himself....

BTW, it was Sara Palin on the TV...... I know that is another thread...

...straws are too classy for US because as we are designated as SLF, we must provide everything...

...also, you forgot beer--they merely bring out the kegs....

I flew Saturday from ATL doesnt matter to where really but I was sitting in one of the chairs right next to the boarding door in the B terminal waiting for my flight. There were a couple of folks doing the line dance to get on the plane first and I just kinda watched and chuckled to myself. Well when the GA called for zone 1 all I had to do was stand take one step and hand her my boarding pass. The first person in the little line saw me start to get up and really quickened his pace to get to the agent. I thought he was either going to cry or his head explode when he wasnt the first on the plane. I think its pretty funny actually...........................

Sometimes, just to annoy the lice, I'll strike up a conversation with the GA, which distracts her from attending to the lice for a little while at least...

...by the way, a 5th lice has joined them....

Both of these, unfortunately, remind me of the MCO - New York flights (or vice / versa). I will take pics next time I'm at the airport, it's terrible.
