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

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

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 ?

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.

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.

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!
