Does this have to do with the length of the runway? Altitude? Or some other factor?

Which type of free ticket changes (same dates, same origin/destination) are permitted by UA in the event of a 2+ hour change to departure or arrival time to one direction of a roundtrip flight? I do...

Are you referring to the limits on the number of day tickets sold? I think most flying in from outside would be using a pass product like Ikon or Mountain Collective. I don't think Ikon has announced...

Even before this news, I was always surprised at how poor Delta's ski service was from its Midwestern hubs at MSP and DTW. There is surely a decent amount of local demand, plus these locations are...

The tech is cool, but I don't really see a great application of it at this point. I've never had a hard time identifying my connecting gate or following the signage to get there.

For every one like you who asks for more frequent service on smaller planes, there is another who refuses to fly on regional jets, especially the CRJ200, and who prefers less frequent service on...

I'm astonished this made it past beta testing. Ever passenger I've seen be thanked in this way is always super uncomfortable, as is the FA, as it's very impersonal and repetitive. One man even...

I don't think it's inexplicable at all. The lack of seat selection and inferior IRROPS aren't much of an issue on short flights within a state that rarely experiences weather issues. No change fees...

This is a very lazy way of thinking. Without the demand from you (and others who have purchased tickets on the flight) the flight would not exist. You are indisputably responsible for 1/n (adjust...

Did you really just make the "plane is flying there anyway" argument?

Specifically, the travel to so many different far-flung destinations for a <24 hour period each as part of a discretionary trip was what triggered my comment.

It is well documented that a greater...

This is the answer...IMO it's insane to have to fly the same route (<500 miles each way or just over that) 49 weeks out of 52 at $500/wk (annual spend well over $20,000) on Delta and not even reach...

I would assume LAS as primarily an adult leisure and convention destination has a higher amount of premium cabin traffic than other family friendly leisure/convention destinations like MCO.

There are separate SkyPriority and Clear (non-precheck) lines at the north entrance. I can't comment on how long those lines were, though, as the entire terminal was such a mass of humanity that it...

I believe that a meal is always served in First Class on all flights over 1500 miles. DTW-PDX at 1953 miles would qualify.

I wasn't aware that the AF product was considered superior to the DL product. Why would they care about being on AF vs. DL?

The policy of leaving it up to the crew whether or not they are willing to work overtime strikes me as ill-advised. Isn't the whole point of the restrictions on length of duty day, which are specific...

Unfortunately, these types of conditions are par for the course when it comes to airports in many of America's most important cities - LAX, ORD, LGA, EWR, and ATL are all absolutely decrepit.
