Re: Delta not a fan of second airport in Atlanta

What TSA “nightmare?” I can’t remember the last time I waited more than 5 or 10 minutes (precheck, domestic terminal). That’s certainly acceptable for an airport of ATL’s size. 10 min, for precheck!! That's super long. Pre check is walk up or a max of 5 min on a bad day in almost every airport I ha...

Re: Sun Country adds 5 routes from PDX

When PDX-STL ended, SEA got an extra flight to STL. However, at the same time, PDX-SEA gets a large increase in frequencies. They pretty much just switched STL-PDX to STL-SAN. They cut PDX the end of Nov 2017, SAN started Dec 2017. PDX only came back for a couple months in the spring after that. ST...

The new F9 (I flew them a few years back when they were a full service). There prices are dirt cheap, but because of getting free luggage from status or free trips from miles, F9 never ends up being cheaper by a margin high enough for me buy a ticket.
