Geez, is their service on the 737 product that bad now? Is their 737 service really that much worse than the E175 service? That's stunning. Because the E175 service sucks.

checked guns in luggage?

I would not be surprised if TSA will put an end to the ability to check a handgun in luggage. That will likely be the end of that.

Honestly, I am surprised that we can still do this. We can't...
