Will the JW be a "Disney Resort" like the Swan/Dolphin (and the coming Cove) or is it going to be just a "foreign body" in the midst of Disney, like the various Hilton properties in Bonnet Creek? I'm...

RC isn't legacy Starwood, and I believe that a JW is slightly more upscale than a Four Points by Sheraton :D YMMV

I thought I read someplace that the What’s LeftOver Alliance was welcoming Venusian Spaceways and Delta has already entered talks to form a JV. Soon, we could have direct service from ATL to HEL,...

I apologize - If I had the chance to actually explore OKC, I absolutely would. Looking at the OKC airport map though, it doesn't look like there's much to do for 2+ hours.

Oh! I get it! Thanks! I guess the government has dug around in my life for so many years and passed judgement on me using opaque criteria so many times, that I've become jaded. Your points are...

And just how many upgrades to FC have you declined so that you can enjoy that middle seat towards the rear of the Ilyushin? :) I kid - I understand where you're coming from, but I guess I'm an...

Can't the door be moved forward? Also, I'm fairly surprised about the comment of a jet bridge strike. Seems like the 757s, which have similar passenger capacity to the A321s don't have that problem?

I've never understood why they can't use the 2L doors on Airbii for boarding. They appear to be full-size doors. It would be nice to have a 757 boarding experience.

Dear lord, and I only paid 160K miles to fly Concorde! I love the 747, but not THAT much - I can still find other airlines that still have them in service!

I love the MD-88 and am very sad to see it leave. I'm also sad to see DL transition to an all Airbus fleet while running ads in Sky touting American jobs with a picture of an A-350 :rolleyes:
