DL's 737-900/ER is a torture chamber, plain and simple. It's the longest iteration of a plane that was designed and first flew in the early 1960s. Talk about lipstick on a pig. Plus, for fellows...

I'm 6'4, a doughnut shy of 270 and I similarly avoid 739s; it's a torture chamber except maybe the first exit row. Even then, all 73s are narrower than all A319/320/321s and it's most apparent in the...

I suspect DL will be happier about the 1% PIP than they'll care about the 300 nm range increase? Assuming it's used largely on its existing routes, the fuel efficiency gain might allow DL to load a...

Re: SIN - If you're on what appears to be the sole departure from SIN (DL1066) at 0645, perhaps consider bagging what's described to be an unsatisfying lounge visit - if you can even get in at all -...

Here's how I view it today; others' mileage may vary.

For many years (as in going back to about 1999), I'd made Marriott Gold almost every year. I also had a smattering of IHG stays when our rates...

Brief aside re MKE

MKE, MSN, GRB, CWA and RHI (possibly LSE, too) are not National corporate locations. Rather, they're owned by the Gustman Auto Group, which is based in east-central Wisconsin. Gustman handles all of...

+1

I, too, had Sync 3 on a 2016 Mustang that I rented from ITO last week. I'd echo the view that the interface and the snappiness is much improved over its predecessor. If anyone's interested, here's a...

Rent elsewhere...

I grew up in MSN but moved out east about seven years ago. I fly back there and MKE about 6-8 times a year. Since I moved, I rent probably 4-5 times a year between the two locations - until about...

Europcar...

I rented for the first time in the UK last month, but at LHR. I also stopped at Stansted during my rental to exchange my original car so I have somewhat of an overall impression that may be helpful....

Thanks to both of you for replying! I will try to post an update on the LHR thread when I return.

As to the automatic v manual, my daily driver is a stick but I figured that I needed one less...

LHR - What to expect?

I have searched for postings about renting at LHR, but the most recent I've found were from about a year ago. I would be grateful if someone could reply with more current information for my upcoming...

Chicago vs Arlington/NoVA/DC

I'd echo the suggestion of Chicago.

I'm originally from the Midwest (Madison, WI), having moved out here to DC/NoVA about seven years ago. For what I do, there really isn't anywhere else I can...

CJKatl - Thanks for the quick reply; great information, too! I've never driven a Genesis - sort of a salaryman's Merc E-class, right? :rolleyes:

I agree with you about PNS being a great airport...

Bump....

I may have to be in FLL around mid-February and I'm considering doing a one-way from there to PNS. (Yes, yes, I know, loooooong, booooooring drive).

Anyway, I'm wondering whether anyone might be...

Tomorrow...

I have a two-week rental beginning tomorrow. Heading out of town for part of the weekend then back to the midwest for Christmas; cheaper (per day) to do a two-week rental than a one week and a long...

Cool MSN...ugh...

MSN doesn't have an Emerald Aisle, but I suppose it doesn't surprise me because it's more of a medium-size airport. DL and F9 are the only two airlines that offer mainline jet service; UA and AA fly...

Nope...

Round-trip for seven days. Air fares were so outrageous this year to MSN ($650 minimum), in particular, for the days that were workable for me that it's less costly to rent a car for a week,...

Try IST...

It seems that IST has been the destination for some very reasonably-priced fares from ORD, IAD, IAH and (sometimes) JFK. It's not technically a MR at 5.8 cents/mile, but I saw some fares on KL from...

For the reply Drzoidberg. I have a reservation for this coming Thursday AM, so perhaps I'll see you there? I'm heading back to WI for the holiday week and it would be nice have something...

Thursdays @ DCA

I know it's generally unpredictable, but I'm wondering whether the very knowledgeable observers here view Thursday AMs as a good time to snag an intriguing car at DCA? Based upon a review of the...

Cool DCA/MSN Nonstop Done as of February 1st?

For me, the first real impact of the DL/US slot swap has come to pass: last DCA-MSN nonstop appears to be January 31, 2012. Also, it appears that US won't be replacing it, as they're focusing their...

Bb os 7 & 9900/9930/9850

If you're a VzW customer, keep in mind that VzW has a 14-day money back on all of its phones (minus a $35 re-stocking fee), and when I'm going to either purchase a new phone outright (as I did with...

First time to DEN...

For me was about two years ago and, ironically, I'm flying there next week.

On my first visit, I had meetings in downtown Denver and the things that kept coming to mind about DEN after I arrived...
