Sunlight through the window can be very bright, but it is a shame to lose it. On the 787 maybe a half dimmed position would be the right answer. Related to that, I'd much rather they not switch the...

49,322 at $4563. Projected to be about 53k miles and $5040 if I've calculated the PQDs correctly. A little tight.

Channel 9 on takeoff is one of life's pleasures. I do leave my earphones in even without C9 and am reading specifically to avoid the announcements. If they kept strictly to the important safety...

Connecting from T3 to International at SFO is a short airside walk (we do it all the time for trivial reasons like the T3 United club being a little busy). 50 minutes should be fine under normal...
