Hi A-netters. I've decided to upload another trip report, this time covering my 1985 rides in a classic airliner: the Vickers Viscount. Rewind to early 1985. I'd just arrived in England for a two year tour. As a true American Avgeek I was determined to fly in a Viscount as soon as possible after my ...Jump to post
I remember when you two went on this trip. Mickey couldn't stop talking about the "great trip" he had planned (he wouldn't tell me much about it) and then for about a month after it, he wouldn't shut up about the L188 trip. He'd send me photo after photo for hours on end on a my awful cab...Jump to post

Sucks Frontier has apparently dropped (according to trying to book the flight) their morning PHX-DEN flight leaving only one F9 roundtrip in that market. Maybe it's only temporary but I really like being able to get up to DEN on F9 during the 8AM hour. I think the last bookable flight was August 12t...Jump to post

http://www.aeromoe.com/N1968Rheader.jpg Hi A-netters. going back over 18 years now is this belated trip report for my first and only round trip on a Lockheed L-188 Electra. It was the spring of 1999 when the late, great Mickey Bednar (A.K.A. AirNikon here on A.net) and I solidified plans to make a ...Jump to post
No longer possible. The upstairs area is now the security screening area; you need a ticket to be able to go up those escalators.
I realize time has come and gone for the OP question. What did you end up doing? Which terminal(s) did you arrive/depart from? With a 3-hour layover (which could be shorter, if you had to wait aboard your plane for a gate to open) there really isn't much point to leaving the terminal(s). If you were...Jump to post

@ 11725Flyer - thanks - glad you enjoyed the read.Jump to post
I want to add that Jeff Hernandez partly inspired me to take this trip by clueing me in on when the inaugural service would take place. Jeff also inspired me last year to finally get off my duff and take my first Virgin America flights. Jeff's trip reports are awesome, welcome additions to this foru...Jump to post
Completely inappropriate behaviour aboard any form of public transport. The offendrers should be locked up, the crew sacked, and Ryanair fined by the appropriate authorities. There is absolutely no excuse for this behaviour no matter the circumstances, destination, or nationalities involved. Repulsi...Jump to post
Excellent report Jeff - glad you were able to get on this inaugural flight! Thanks for letting me know when this service was starting so I could get in on it fairly early.
Thanks Robert. Seat comfort was pretty decent...and the ride was nice.Jump to post
Hi A-netters. After having viewed Carfield's most excellent report of the inaugural Virgin America A321neo service on May 31, 2017 and his return to SFO on June 1st, I still want to share my experience. I don't fly "up front" very often so this flight was rather special to me in that regar...Jump to post
Great report...thanks for posting. I savored the same experience yesterday June 3rd on the same flight, using Alaska miles to enjoy the First Class experience. I hope to do the westbound leg sometime soon.
Do the windows and cabin floor of the A321 bend uphill at the stern, like the A300/310/330/340 (and I thought 320 family) do? I've been wading through photos but hardly any carriers still paint a cheat line to see for sure. (Some carriers swept their cheatlines up hill aft keeping with the window l...Jump to post
Hi A-netters. Just as the subject title suggests, has anybody out there (most likely us older-timers) flown in two different aircraft that have at different times worn the same registration? This is possible in the USA as registrations are recycled...not sure what the policies are elsewhere in the w...Jump to post

Perhaps I am not seeing some logic here, but I have to think there is a reason that Boeing went with the 2x3x2 configuration for a reason. -Blue I never gave it much thought why Boeing went with the narrower wide-body fuselage when designing the 767. I'm glad they did as I like flying in them when ...Jump to post

How about the 1970s/1980s Eastern Airlines $323 (or whatever it was) Unlimited Mileage Fare. Fairly restrictive in some regards with stopovers, etc but really good value at the time. I think it was good for up to 21 days. Vaguely remember it...there have got to be others here who remember.Jump to post
Great report...hope you enjoyed everything about your trip. I didn't read every single word in your report...more of a scrolling photo guy. Go Dinger!Jump to post

What the hell does a doctor "look like"? I'd love to hear your definition.
Maybe I got some mis-information in BKK last weekend. I'd assumed I could stay airside (like I've done at SIN twice in the past few months) and I did so until 3 hours before my flight.

A lot of people here claim they 'always get the window seat', but in my experience I usually have to pay for it. It maybe $40-$50 each way to pick my seat.
