So now youre trying to convey a message that the 757's which me may get just like those 3 will rune PHL-RDU or CLT-DFW. Get a grip! You think you can us more w/ a few airline terms! Hell, Ive done a huge statistics report on the whole US Airways deal, the whole 10 yards on available seat miles, revenue miles and such, which was presented to the school board. How low can you go?

But hey, as anyone else does, I feel proud for those who have a goal, and work hard. So, I a proudly nominate you as preffered person to suceed Douglas W. Parker. Go for it, buddy!

And our favorite McFlyPHL tagline... SHOCKING!

Switch to decaf, please.

Calling a sow's ear a purse does NOT make it a purse. Neither does calling a connecting flight a direct flight make it a direct flight...PERIOD. For those who have not read a dictionary recently here are several definitions of direct flight on the web. None of them permit a change in aircraft:

Definitions of Direct Flight on the Web:

* A flight on which passengers do not have to change planes, but may involve one or more stops en route.
www.letsgotosea.com/TourTermGlossary.asp

* A flight that stops at another airport, but passengers do not change planes. An example of a direct flight is a passenger taking a direct flight from Boston to Dublin . The flight first stops at Shannon Airport and then continues to Dublin , with the passengers traveling to Dublin staying on the same plane.

* A flight with one or more intermediate stops but no change of aircraft.

Hopefully that settles the issue once and for all. I don't care how many airlines are "doing it," it's deceptive and wrong.

Just wondering how many FT members take a direct car drive from home to the office each morning which involves a change of car at some intermediate point?
