These are all fair points. Though, a lot of the places you named (McLean, Ashburn, Tysons, Great Falls, Potomac), are more convenient to IAD than DCA (especially places like Tysons where the access...

This is very, very, very true about DC. There are a lot of people who are well-to-do and might buy J for say the annual vacation to Europe, but wouldn't necessarily spring for a lie-flat to LAX. Not...

This sounds very promising. I have been mourning the demise of Norwegian TATL but it looks like B6 will take their place quite nicely.

Yeah, I understand what bad traffic is like. I once took a re-route from LGA (20-minute, $25 cab ride) to EWR (1-hour, $100 cab ride because of traffic and tolls). Was I happy about it? Not at all....

I can't imagine a situation where I'd rather spend 24 hours in the Hyatt Place at DFW than be re-routed on the same day to a destination that's 30 miles from my original destination, unless maybe I...

I dunno, normally at DCA it's not really an event to see members of Congress. Any given Senator or Representative is just 1 of 535. I guess Mitch (as an example) is slightly more important, but the...

Based on this video -- inside the secure area at DCA -- I don't think alcohol in F is the problem.

This is the only real issue-- ensuring it's secured so that it doesn't open in transit. Some departure airports have that service that will shrink wrap your luggage-- I have used that when I've...

B6 likely isn't ever going to fly to STN. They want to be able to advertise that they're starting BOS-LON service and this is their backup while they wait for slots at LHR/LGW.

Assuming that DY...

My shortest ever widebody flight was BOS-PHL on a 332. I was doing a segment run DCA-BOS-PHL-DCA. I got the upgrade... I think I got to lie flat for about 20 minutes before they started preparing the...

After the 777s were densified with ten-across Y, the 332 was far and away the most comfortable long-haul aircraft in the fleet. Nice flat bed in J with no "rocking" or backward facing seats, and...

I took many RDU-LHR trips on the 763. I always liked the three-row (later, two-row) "mini-cabin" in coach. On my very first RDU-LHR trip, I had a set of 3 seats in the middle of the mini-cabin all to...
