The gate agent was doing her job. She was following the rules set forth by the company who gives her a paycheck.

Sorry , was not clear. I was in paid F Subu So if you weren't standby, how is this relevant to the discussion? There's another thread on here of people just complaining that airlines no longer wait for connecting passengers. My 2 cents: if you are connecting from mainline to a regional, the regiona...Jump to post

A 1996 vintage router probably would have 10/100 'fast' ethernet, that's right when the transition away from coax was happening.

Been using grids for batch job submission for over a decade of my career, and the machines that keep running but just fail to work... those suck.

K4 will keep them going until they are out of engines (which they have no spares).

Why does Delta have no A320 family A/C at SEA? They only fly here once in a blue moon from LAX, and every other DL hub sees them...so why so few Airbus A320/319 aircraft here?

Here somebody has royaly fucked up. A break down of protocol, of a system that should ensure that such things would not happen.

Serious trolling, I mean I bought a hat and tipped it to you, but come on. Ludicrous idea. 23/05 went for good practical reasons, we're not flying in an age of the B707 anymore.
