Feb-22-09AA 83 FRA-ORD: 11 FTers in J!
 
I can't write to save my life so I'll keep this short...


Of all the AA FRA runs this spring, I believe we may have the most FTers. Most of us met in the AC. Two we ran into on the bus to the aircraft, and one wasn't even on a MR. We got together and took a photo before the flight landed :D

Thanks Ben!! I had a really great time meeting everyone. Hope you got home okay.

My ORD-SFO didn't end up leaving until after 9PM, and I didn't arrive until after midnight and by that time the BART stopped running so I had to take a cab to the BART station where I left my car. Totally ruined my CPM for the trip :p

Much love to the Flagship Lounge staff that kept their eyes on that flight for me, and of course much love to Deltahater + his wife for guesting us both in to the lounge!^^^

Someone sitting to the far left doesn't seem to be too happy . . . ;)

Without a doubt, that has to be the best-dressed and most sophisticated group of flyers I've ever seen.

Looks like a fun trip ^

How long did the trolley with the booze last ? Did you make it beyond the UK ? :D

I showed this picture to my wife, thinking she would realize how wonderful this all looks.... not so much. Thanks again for the picture Ben.

Awesome picture! :) I should ask around the cabin if anyone belongs to FT and to take a photo.

Glad to know that I'm not the only J junkie and FT junkie out there . . . and that we look normal. :D

What if she joined you?? As you can see she would have a few other women to talk to!

For some reason when I gaze upon that photograph I feel a twinge of sympathy for the flight attendants.:D

We were on our best behavior! :D

I'm curious, how did you all recognize each other? I'm always on the lookout for FTers :-) I keep hearing about these luggage tags, but they seem like an urban legend as I've never seen them in real life!
