V1 usually occurs around 30 to 35 seconds, on most commercial aircraft. It's pretty consistent. I have had two aborted takeoffs at high speed. One was a DL L1011 in SLC. The other was more...

I drink rum and OJ when flying. With the small amount of OJ, a single is a bit stiff, and a double is close to straight - not that there's anything wrong with that! I usually have to ask for a...

I'm scheduled to arrive LAX from RAR at 6 in the morning on Oct. 19th. Most likely, I'll book a flight out the following day. Is there an airport hotel that allows for a very early check-in?
