Hate to burst your bubble, but neither pmCO or pmUA had grills in the galleys....not exactly sure where they would have even had the space. If there were grill marks it was only because they came...

The requirement for UA Club entry is a same day UA flight. Regardless of non-rev or rev, as long as you are on a UA flight it shouldn't be an issue. I know on DL, back when CO was part of SkyTeam,...

That being said...is there more of a risk for contamination? I realize we are talking about airline food here, with most of it flash frozen then loaded into chillers. For the fresh food items, is...

It's sporadic, but in last months schedule at least one of the EWRSTL trips was flown on an E75; I'm not sure why it comes and goes, because as you said its too long for an all-Y 50 seater, but...

My advice, and this is just how I handle these situations, track your flight back to the aircraft and where it is coming from all the way back to the beginning of the day. For instance if I am on a...

Operationally it makes sense to just swap one CR7 for another; logistically though it proves to be tougher since the regionals are pretty much bound to stay in their swim lane because of crew...

I'd be curious to see how different the costs were from meals in the 2006-2009 pmCO time period vs UA transcons today. That was when all west coast (LAX/SFO/SNA/SAN/SEA/PDX-EWR) transcons had meal...

Guess I didn't think to do the math; the only advantage to them being retired were that the 738s/739s that replaced them had IFE. I'm definitely not looking forward to the day when DC/MD T-tails...
