Even if that were true, that has nothing to do with it, as others have noted.

Most of the noise associated with SFO is over the water. I think others are correct that the issue as to SFO specifically is the bay-fill that would be required to build a new runway, and the...

Agree with those calling this a marked improvement. Also agree with the comment that a heritage tulip livery in the fleet would be very cool.

If even the FAA didn't think through MCAS long enough to realize that it could theoretically activate near the ground based on a single erroneous sensor reading, it seems like balls were dropped all...

If using electric trim inhibits MCAS until five seconds after electric trim is released, and the ET pilots used electric trim before the last MCAS activation before the crash, do we know why the...

I don't think anyone has said the MAX generally creates more lift than any other 737, have they? I believe the issue is that the MAX's nose tends to continue to pitch up during a high-AOA situation...

Has it actually been shown that the MAX is less "stable"? I don't believe so. I think all we have heard (in the flying public) is that in a near-stall condition (which is itself a condition that...

When SFO has delays, it stinks. But on the whole it's not that bad and I'd much rather make the trip to SFO than to OAK. Partially snobbery I'll admit.

So...where are those promised technological...

Unfortunate that a system that was probably never expected to activate in normal flying had a hand in bringing down two planes (if that is how it pans out on the ET crash). But that perhaps also...

A recent flight I had on an ERJ-175 had 40 1Ks. That was according to the gate agent after I noted how many people seemed to board with the 1K call. More than half the plane.

OK, but I buy $100 in Peet's cards at Costco for $80. If I use the full $100, Peet's is eating some of the $, but of course they are getting my patronage at their store. If I were to use the Peet's...

Pretty sure you can't use the app there because the airport Peet's are franchised/licensed.

Did they give a reason for not re-routing you through NRT? Was it checked baggage or something?

In fairness, Peet's has been at the airport longer than that. I assume the airport locations are franchised anyway, but don't know.

Wow. Them's fighting words in San Francisco.

Depends on many factors, including time/day of week, how many tickets I'm buying, length of trip, nature of the flight, etc. But it's pretty rare I end up at SJC. I don't care for OAK either, but I...
