You could also consider venturing further into to Allgau or even into Switzerland. Alternatively try some of the lakes between Munich and Austria. Chiemsee for instance.

I believe the 737 and the MD80 seat numbering scheme came out of a long-ago attempt at standardization. From the then ‘standard’ domestic 757 AA configuration of 24 F, to align the seat numbers for...

Absolutely...I suppose what I didn’t say there was that it seems like they (AA) don’t think they need a dense schedule out of ORD given their priorities. I’ve watched the schedules to ORD get hacked...

It seems like for some time AA has been treading water at ORD. They know they can’t give up but they seem to recognize that for the business traveler they are an ‘also ran’ to UA. I would love to...
