I think there's actually one plane (with one flight number) that flies MEL-SYD-LAX, and a different plane (with a different flight number) that flies SYD-SFO.

I read the GPU thread and the...

How would you feel about the rule, "If you've obviously got less stuff than the limit, but it's in 3 bags instead of 2, no one hassles you about it"?

OK, this is a dumb question to which I should know the answer. I have a reservation in Y from MEL-SYD-SFO. There is R availability from MEL-SYD (duh) but not SYD-SFO (doh). Is there a way to...

Not to mention those of us who (1) live 10 minutes from SFO, and (2) fly places with no nonstop flights from SJC or OAK. :-(

The problem is that some take it that way (advisory, comply at your own risk) and others take it as mandatory (you're legally required to comply with crewmember instructions). I feel like maybe some...

I was observing at SFO this afternoon. No clouds, fairly windy. Flights were all landing on 27R and taking off from 27L, 1L/R were not in use at all. Don't know if this was due to crosswinds or...
