I've been flying A319s a lot lately, and they all seem to make a loud buzzing/groaning noise when the engines are throttled. It starts on takeoff and persists through the flight. I previously thought...

Totally agree--the F/G club has been decently "crowded" (by COVID standards) for months. I suspect most will blame cost-cutting. I, personally, just miss the plane watching from that club...

It also seems that the agents working in the SkyPriority line at the hubs seem to attach the yellow tag as a matter of habit. Once as FO using one of the SP lines that was open to FO the agent...

Some new food selections at MSP. The new chicken curry pita sandwich was quite tasty--the only sandwich post-COVID I dared to eat--the others sounded gross.

They seem to have replaced the...

There was a discussion somewhere upthread (or maybe in a different thread before). Per the T&Cs, I don't believe you can use the pass if you are no longer a Reserve Card holder (the pass can only be...

Did anyone else know that they serve it with a Dom-branded chilling bucket!? Saw this at MSP today. Pretty sure this group used up a full AmEx Gold Card signup bonus on Dom tonight. I wonder how...

Agreed—the “C+” seats feel more cramped than any others. OTOH, I never felt that the exit row gave you extra legroom—it always seemed to be the same pitch as other rows.

I hit PM a little over a month ago and my tags came in the mail last week. Still wish they were metal.

I contemplated using my old Silver tags to mess with folks and make them think a FO got...

I have to say that it doesn't always work this way. I have had cases where I didn't get the upgrade until T-120 for the second flight. I've also had the experience where it appears I can select an...

That's very disappointing, indeed. I previously chatted with Delta and they "confirmed" that those MQMs would apply as 2020 MQMs for 2021 status. That said, I was a bit skeptical and fortunately hit...

I recommend packing it in a bag and checking it. That is what we always do, though it takes up almost a full suitcase. Its not worth tying up your hands to take on board, and wouldn’t pink tag it due...

Certain seats on the seat map are blocked for assignment at the gate. Often, this is the last one or two rows of the plane. For regional jets, it may also include a couple seats in the first row of...
