Your claim that "alliances are going to disintegrate." You "supported" your claim with an article about AI/AC codeshare agreement. That seems like an awfully weak argument.

Given the comments here about what's wrong with US as far as *A is concerned, I have a hard time believing that people would welcome B6 as a suitable *A partner. And for as bad as PHL is, JFK is...

Perhaps I'm missing something ... why would US leave *A? Because it's too expensive? Also, I assume that UA could not unilaterally kick US out (even though UA "sponsored" US to begin with). Say what...

Looks like the Septa train to the airport leaves 30th Street Station every half hour on the :04 and :34, and it takes 15-20 minutes to get to the airport. So if your Amtrak train is on time, you can...

Wow, that makes absolutely no sense. Your individual balance sheet would remain the same, and while you would have cash flow, you would have no "profit" following your "transactions." And you would...

I don't think that's fair. People vent here all the time, and it's not like the GA always tells you that you have a choice.

Regarding the $200 credit, screw that. If I get a "voucher good for a...

It will be very difficult for Delta to come up with a deal that gives its creditors that cash that US will give. It's nice to hear words regarding future profitability but it's better to get cash...

I have to say that my two relatively recent experiences at CDG were fine, but two flights cancelled in two days?!?! That is really unacceptable. Did US try to accommodate pax on other airlines? ...

Liquids bought after security allowed on plane

This is logical. I'm surprised TSA did not allow liquids bought in the secure area on planes in from the beginning of the new security regime. I only hope it's effective starting this weekend for...

Competition on that flight may also have decreased. Southwest has raised its fares generally, and I think Frontier dropped that route sometime in the last year.

In my experience, the lines move at about the same pace. Twenty minutes is the longest I've had to wait on about ten return trips from Europe. Also, the lines are almost faster in Europe.

Perhaps you can try one more time to catch the next earlier flight. Pre-merger I did have success doing just that for a DTW-PHL-SNN connection for my mother. She had about 80 minutes to go from F...

When you say they don't check, I assume you mean they don't check your person when you walk through the metal detector. But can't they see liquid in the carry on bags that are scanned? That is what...

I agree with your general point about extending the distance for flying, but in my PHL-PIT example, why would you ever go airport to airport? They are almost never destinations in themselves. I...

Since day 1 of this most recent crackdown, I have wondered why liquids purchased after the security checkpoint could not be carried on the plane. That morning, I thought to myself, well that's not...

That's not entirely true. You can schedule extra baggage and other ground workers to deal with summer forecasts that include afternoon thunderstorms. (And I don't even have a degree in logistics!)...

Booked a LUV flight PHL-RSW today -- $136! $136!!! Couldn't pass it up given that US was almost double at $270.

So let's not get carried away with thinking US has consistently lower prices. It's...

Is that true?! That is really amazing, even given the earliness of the season for Ireland. I would think that, to justify the prices US is charging the Europe this summer, the planes would have to...

Two observations:

1. The issue doesn't seem to be that there are capacity controls, which everyone understands. The issues are that there appear to be NO seats available on the day that seats...

There was a big article in the Phila Inquirer on the same topic. Gist was the same with a little more detail. All I can say is forget about the people in Delaware County and in S. Jersey that are...

They might have been taking part in the "day without immigrants" (in the Philadelphia area, the most severe consequence apparently was the closing of a mushroom farm in Chester county). If so, it...

Barring a crazy delay you will be fine. SNN is a small airport, so you won't need to travel far to get to US check in. I don't think you will have to clear any immigration/customs to get into...

I'm not sure what that means. Gate areas without enough seating? More RJ flying (ugh - I thought that phase was passing)? Ground crew who sit while planes wait to pull into their gates? On the...

All I'm saying is that there are some smart people who know the industry that are buying the stock and, by implication, don't think PHL will cause a failure of this airline. Obviously you disagree. ...
