I have no idea if she is still there, but Karla with a K is exactly who I thought of when the OP brought up STL. One of the few memorable gate agents I've ever seen.

51 minutes would be pretty tight if you have to change terminals, especially if there's any delay out of JFK. In my experience, all of my mainline flights have been in and out of A, but as you've...

I’ve been visiting the new SkyClub regularly since it opened, and it’s slowly getting better as traffic has picked up. I spent a couple hours there this afternoon and it was briefly the busiest I had...

Flew RNO-SLC-ORD yesterday and simply put, it felt different. Certainly the busiest I've seen air travel in a long time.

Top 3 things I don't miss:
1. People! Shorter lines, less crowded lounges, empty seats next to me, no gate lice, shorter upgrade lists. Travel for me on DL has been pretty comfortable with so few...

Personally, I'd be more concerned about the crazy amount of sugar in three rum and cokes, but I guess bartenders aren't doctors. That said, I've also seen studies that suggest spirits mixed with diet...

I'm pretty sure DL only requires it for the exit rows, or at least I think I remember seeing FAs request this. As others have said, this is an operational procedure DL sets and the FAA approved.

This makes me wonder if DL is adding any other intra-west flights to/from LAX. They recently started flying RNO-LAX with OO E175s and it looks like this will be 3x daily through the summer. DL never...
