It's pretty clear you haven't read (or comprehended) too many posts on this thread. You know nothing about my field, which makes your statements quite a bit more amusing. Or perhaps you really believe I am a cat herder who reinvents wheels.

I'd suggest you take a look at the suggestions here from myself and others, and learn from them. We've been around the block a few times (some on here many more times than me) and seen several different ways of doing things. It's what makes FT great - a resources when something isn't clear or you run into a roadblock, and a place where experiences and experience provide perspectives beyond our own.

Fits you well. With your manner, you cant possibly interact w/ humans, so yes a cat herder who reinvents wheels is quite adequate. 2 things, would want to be one of those wheels, and um... feeling sorry for the um... POOR CATS!


And of course, our favorite McFlyPHL tagline... SHOCKING!

Let's all try to limit the personal attacks.... it is getting distracting from the main purpose of this thread..

I think, and I hate to say this, we should really get some "shoots" like Southwest does. Have the preboards in one line.. and then Zone 1 Zone 2,etc.. it could help..

Even if you separate the pre-boards from the regular coach. Speed it up

Interesting point although I think it'd be better received if marketed that we're following CO's model and not that of Southwest!

Interesting idea - rodeo "chutes" to the cattle call!

Does anyone have experience with the CO method? I see the Elite Access areas with carpets and all, but wonder how it would work at US. If the idea is to separate boarding it might be difficult to put a crush of people through a smaller line. Or you could liken it to shooting elites out of a cannon... maybe not a bad idea to some!

Since when a king is a female?



By the way liveon777, this is only towards McFlyPHL. He asked for these forum wars, and Im just waiting till he retreats. Talk about waging wars. This is not about making the other user's time hard here, its about the public mockery of McFlyPHL. He can just tailgating me, and this will also subside. I mean, Liveon777, you wouldnt be too thrilled, if after every post I went and tried to attack you right? Well thats what McFlyPHL did, and now hes taked the hard way how to learn politeness in a public forum. Suprising many agree w/ me? Anyway liveon777, I hold no grudges against you, but you really got stop criticizing me. So what if Im 16, I still have the right to fly alot. Ask alot of F/a's they WILL tell you, that I can be nicer than many adults. So please lets not argue over some foolish thing. I might as well say im 42, will that make some less prone to attacking me?

if you believe the TOS have been violated (ed. fairly clear in this case), you can use the report bad post button (red triangle icon under appropriate post/name).
separately, you can use the ignore list feature in your myflyertalk settings.
