You're misstating what the article says, shocking.

Maintenance issues shouldn't be taken lightly. When the FAA pulls a maintenance certificate this is serious business.

I would say NWA fliers will be less satisfied, because they generally are. That and Michigan, Tennessee, and Indiana are in the top eleven of the US fattest cities so width is important.

What is it about the SLC based pilots and FA's?

By far the friendliest people in the travel business. Is it something in the water there? Most flights to SLC with SLC based staff is almost like riding on a tour bus. They let you now far in advance...

I flew FC in a EMB145 on Tuesday from NY to DC. It was suprisingly comfortable inside. The seat seemed to recline a bit more than mainline FC seats. The 145 is a nice plane.

Number one on the upgrade list, 8 upgrades cleared. Is it possible to request a seat while you are on the upgrade list?

I imagine the process is automated and just spits out...

I like the fees. It helps keep people from gaming the system, booking award travel and constantly changing it, which screws with the travel calendar for everybody else.

Bulkhead on the DL757 is bad. Leg room is very limited. You can put your feet on the wall which helps a little but it's still a bit cramped. The 737 seems to have a bit more bulkhead space.

Plat upgrade percentage SLC-ORD and return?

Is this an elite heavy route? MD90 with only 3 rows of first has me wondering if it's better to fly through Atlanta.

Let's see, you could, fly another airline. Or you could continue to degrade this board by posting complaint, after complaint, after complaint.

If you don't like Delta, fly another airline.

This way we both win. You get to go piss and moan on another board and we get to continue to fly the airline of our choice without the worry of being stuck on a plane full of the unwashed.
