This knocked a 3 day one way rental from $356 to $141. The catch is that it's $.45/mile instead of unlimited, but I still come out around $100 ahead.

Well, I left an iPod in the center console of a car returned to Hertz at RDU last year. I called the office from the plane and they Fedexed it back to me the next day. So there are some honest people.

She's lucky they didn't swab it- the nitrate content would have caused them to evacuate the terminal and blow the ham up in the parking lot.

Does the badge really say "Spetember 11, 2001" at the bottom? :rolleyes: They may as well have "Think of the Children" and "It's for Your Own Security" on there as well.

That hardly seems worth writing about. Apart from one stupid quip by a German, it sounds like everyone was unusually nice to her.

Yeah, or you could just send a few dozen nice big bombs via USPS Express Mail, rigged with barometric pressure sensors so they go off after takeoff. Or maybe accelerometers so they go off during...

If safety is the first priority, then why serve drinks at all? Flying the plane is the pilots' #1 priority, and we seldom see them walking through the cabin behind a beverage cart.

I'm sure they just take those out and haul them to the dumpster without even looking at the contents, so throwing motor oil or antifreeze in there is a pretty bad idea, just for environmental...

The jets were there to shoot down the plane before any bomb could be detonated, of course. Better safe than sorry.

What would happen if you flushed a big lump of sodium down the toilet? Enclosed space, hydrogen, oxygen, heat. Would it just burn off?

I've always had really good service on SGN-HKG, probably because I've always been pretty much the only person upstairs. The FA-Passenger ratio in C has been pretty close to 1 on that flight every...

I would move to Iceland tomorrow if I could.

I think your best bet is to use miles to Europe (or maybe England) and get a cheap flight over to Iceland.

Same thing happened to me when I started a degree in England in 1996- except they took me to that little room and gave me a chest Xray. Eh, whatever.

I think on any given flight there would be a few people capable of getting the plane down intact if it came to that. I think the bigger problem would be identifying those people and leaving one or...

When you special order your meal, vegan is an option. It usually sucks, but at least you get to eat. On international flights, you'll generally get a fruit plate without the yogurt.

Doesn't sound like he'd be all that hard to identify on a flight. Maybe he doesn't care, I don't know. If I were spending tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars with United, I would care.

Have you considered finding a good travel agent? If good customer service were a high priority for me (and I had the money to pay for it), I wouldn't be calling any airline.
