I know what you're saying is true, but I've decided after this many years of my life that I cannot spend my life worrying that other people can't figure out how to follow directions on their own. As...

It's surprising to see all the holier-than-thou posts in here from people denouncing "Gate Lice". If you're in FC, and you know you're going to board first, what is wrong with standing there when...

Agree. There's no contest among the clubs. The T2 one used to be a BusinessElite club, and has retained the higher end look and feel, if not service and snacks. More space too, so quieter and...

Does it have to be the US? Nelson Airport, New Zealand. 4th largest commercial airport in the country! It's a tiny shack of an airport though. I wish I could upload my pictures, but go here and...

I'm in the same boat, and I don't even bother with M's on my major Int'l leg because it's too outrageous most of the time (JFK-TLV). So while I have plenty of MQM typically, I am not a profitable...

Huh? ATL is terrible. So is JFK and LGA. Delta is starting from behind there. SLC and CVG help I am sure, but DL's main 2 hubs (not counting NW) are in much worse shape from a weather standpoint...

Best lounge in SEA is the CO President's Club, by far. I still use it when I can. The terminal tram exit for B gates comes out right in front of it. You can get back and forth between South...

Quite a bit. Weather delays still count as delays in the statistics. Not that you shouldn't factor weather in, but it's why I am always more interested in seeing the figures adjusted for WX delays....

I'll second all of this from an anecdotal standpoint. I've flown 86/87 six times the last 2 years, and have 2-3 more coming this year. Never seen a drunk pax, or even a mildly difficult one, going...

I was never impressed by NW's in-flight product, but I loved it none the less because they had the most generous F-to-Y ratios of anyone on their planes, and I would get regular upgrades as a CO...

I forgot to post my report. I was on DL87 (TLV-JFK) on the 31st, which was just after the new "regulations" were put out, and before the TSA reeled them back. So I got to see the enhanced gate...

I do JFK-TLV 2-4 times a year. I prefer DL over El Al for numerous service-related reasons. The 767 is nice for my wife and I because of the 2-3-2 layout, but otherwise it can be kinda worn and...

It's you. There's nothing inherent about the system other than plastic and electronics. It's the people who can make it good or bad. Get a mechanic sitting behind you, you'll probably suffer. Get...

I'll second this post. While I am not a fan of either airport as a connecting airport (I've done both MSP and ATL dozens of times), if you check the map and take the fastest route (which isn't...

You have to see JFK as a primarily O&D operation. Looking at it as a connecting hub is missing the point. While I agree that fighting LH, BA, etc to their bigger hub markets is futile in an effort...

It's worth keeping in mind that EWR-JFK-LGA often need to be thought as a 20 mile wide superhub when it comes to operations and espcially ATC. Weather at one almost always affects the others...

Agreed, sorta. I wouldn't say super-hot, but much hoter than I expected or have experienced on any other long-INTL flight in a 747. I noticed while in Seoul that buildings were kept warmer than in...

Fascinating thread. If I multiquote, this post will take forever, so I will simply address some of what has been discussed. I grew up in northern NJ, and live in Nassau County now, so have handled...

It's not really any strategy at all. Even the towncar option is sketchy depending on the, day, time, and season. LGA-JFK is 15 miles of the nastiest traffic you could ask for sometimes. I...

Can I kindly ask that further posters restirct their experiences to more international legs? I think we've firmly established via the posts thusfar, and the TSA document, that these changes will...

Excellent, thank you. The last few times I went to LAX out of JFK, the plane was a BE-configured 757 anyway, but I still got upgrades because of when I was flying. Considering when this trip is, I...

I seem to have managed to get into the higher range this year. 90973 MQM, 20 segments for a 4549 average per segment. This is heavily boosted by JFK-ICN-AKL earlier in the year, as well as some...

I have to say, if that were the case, the SkyClubs would be a lot less crowded. I certainly wouldn't ever be in there. The computers aren't part of the noise problem, IMO. It's the drinkers who...

I've been a DL Plat for only about a year and a half now, but before that I was Elite on CO for years. During that time I was an active participant in the FT OnePass board.
