The JR Rail pass is more economical if you plan to venture outside of Tokyo and visit other regions in the country, otherwise, you're wasting lots of money. You'd be better off getting a SUICA and PASMO card. They are both rechargeable and make things far easier than having to figure out the fares b...Jump to post
Agreed on the previous posts. I was coming close to one after getting some little bug from my dad who still has it (mostly a dry cough). I got some Zicam chewables at CVS and those worked perfectly. I wasn't over it completely, but it was to the point where I hardly noticed I had a cold. My understa...Jump to post
I dropped my mom off last night at DTW, and was shocked to see how barren the lines were. We both left early in the expectation that things would be a little backed up, but it looked like a total ghost town by the ticket counters compared to what I'm used to.Jump to post
Any word on when CBP will be adding Mobile Passport app to DTW? Passed through DTW on my way back from London yesterday, and it would have been nice to use the app instead of having to use the computers. There's always Global Entry and Nexus. Nexus is super-cheap at only $50. Yes, you'll have to go...Jump to post
When is the ANA bird supposed to be out of paint? Can't be far off? I was wondering the same thing. Then I came across this. (I tried embedding it but failed miserably. If anyone can explain how that would be greatly appreciated.) https://twitter.com/Airbus/status/1068080612362326016 I'd be a littl...Jump to post
No YouTube video of it (yet anyway), but their Facebook page mentions a new safety video will be launched for domestic routes starting December 1 and international routes beginning January 1. The theme of it centers around Japanese Kabuki and given NH's reputation for quality, I'm sure it will not d...Jump to post
Can't wait to see more pictures of the interior. I'm not on the inaugural, but I'm very tempted to book a trip out of my neck of the woods.
For those wanting to track the delivery flight to ATL...
I think it's safe to say this is the delivery flight for DL's first A220.
Michigan has a very significant amount of tourism but we aren't in the top 10, and may barely even make the top 20 states in regards of tourism revenue. The vast majority of tourism is in-state and regionally-driven from states within a day's drive of most destinations. The amount of out-of-state t...Jump to post
DTW-PVG is returning to DTW. I hear that someone on board passed away and YWG wasn't available as a diversion point.
My condolences to the pax's loved ones.
On the shitty days at work, I jokingly say that all it takes is for some air traffic controller in LGA to sneeze and all hell breaks loose. Sure the terminal investments are nice for LGA, but what is really needed is another runway that will NOT intersect with the approach paths for JFK.Jump to post
and the irony of it is that DL does the ground handling for KLM and AF in most, if not all the hubs. I know that's the case with the AF flight here. I'm friends with plenty of the agents who work that flight at the gate/counter on a daily basis. Oh, and the idea of MEM-AMS returning by virtue of bei...Jump to post
This should make up for the lack of a KE 380 in ATL.
Looks to be effective for the Summer 2019 schedule on AF 689/688

Looks so sophisticated. I'm liking that the sea of navy blue uniforms is going away. It does have some similarities to the AZ uniforms stated above, but again a little more refined, most noticeably in the shades of colors. Perhaps it's the lighting, but the AZ uniforms look like very washed out shad...Jump to post
At last, a non-Photoshopped image of this plane! It looks gorgeous and I certainly wouldn't mind having these on my CLT runs in the future. The A220 (I am having awful trouble not writing CSeries!) You and me both. This name change doesn't do my brain any favors in the morning before I have my coffee.Jump to post
Many of my coworkers came from the NW and even RC days. They say it is like night and day primarily with the training that goes on. According to them, the training was far more thorough and comprehensive than it currently is with DL. While I've been with DL for four years and counting, I can tell th...Jump to post
I called it. The DTW folks kept saying KE would go into DTW rather than DL adding MSP and KE adding BOS. Yet here we are. It's rather good to see some connecting traffic taken away from DTW. Solid add for KE and I'm positive it'll go daily in short order. It was usually some of the local crazies. O...Jump to post
Just when I thought nothing could top the cringeworthiness of DL's safety video that referenced all those viral internet videos, along comes this. I'd rather put my ears through a cheese grater than repeatedly hear that voice.Jump to post
The "rotunda" area in the Center A and Concourse C Skyclubs are currently undergoing a renovation that states "new food serving areas coming soon" Anyone know what they are doing to the Skyclubs? They aren't doing a full club reno, are they? Are they keeping self-serve or puttin...Jump to post
Random question I am flying DL MSP-AMS on October 6 on an A330 any shot this could be swapped by that point to an A350 or 777 with the new D1 suite? My wife and I are connecting in MSP from BNA I am considering swapping to the connection in DTW to get the A350 with D1 in J, however, the timing of t...Jump to post
After seeing that mustard brown, I don't think I'll ever complain about the passport plum.
Also, I'm glad to see that we're well past the point of those cringe-worthy safety videos filled with comedic skits and/or viral internet references.
Are the uniforms for the check in/ gate agents, Sky Club agents and FA’s differentiated in any way or do they all get to wear the same pieces? For men, not so much. The blazer for IFS originally was supposed to have epaulets on the shoulders, but that changed as the wear testers claimed it had too ...Jump to post
However, we all found out later that they can wear the men's uniform under the condition they wear it for at least one year. Oh ugh! No way. Just say no! The female FA’s should NOT be able to wear the men’s uniform! No no no! They will look like they did in the awful Leo Mullin era gray, boxy unifo...Jump to post
Passport Plum! I think they’ll look great. I’m curious, were any design changes made after the trial period? Yes, several. Many of them were a bit subtle, but one of the most noticeable to the men's uniform is that they darkened the gray much to everyone's relief including my own. The women aren't ...Jump to post
I've received my extra pieces of it, and all I can say is that May 29 can't come fast enough. The passport plum did take some getting used to, but I definitely understand why the powers that be in ATL chose that color. Not only does it compliment multiple skin tones, it clearly stands out among the ...Jump to post
I vaguely recall that plane with the blue stripe the last time I was at MGM Studios (aka Hollywood Studios). I haven't been there in years though, and likely wouldn't be back anytime soon as I've had more than my fill of the place.Jump to post
