Says she hit her head in the restroom before the flight took off. Not sure what she was doing using the restroom before takeoff but she's lucky it was Southwest. Another airline might have returned to the gate and removed her from the plane.Jump to post

So really not solid numbers. MSP-FCO was running are 65-70% and DL dropped it. Flights to LHR may be able to command higher fares and almost certainly more paid premium cabin fares than flights to FCO. And likely MSP-AMS-FCO is more acceptable than DTW-AMS-LHR due to the no "backtracking"...Jump to post
Of all the things Delta could have their IT department working on it is interesting that this is a priority.Jump to post
I don't think there's a lot of people at Boeing worrying about this. They still have the 797 designation to use. Looking at when airplanes were first introduced into service: 787 - 2011 777 - 1995 767/757 - 1982/1983 747 - 1970 737 - 1966 727 - 1962 707 - 1957 Over history that's an average of a ne...Jump to post

I am not sure MSP is a more desirable connection over ORD for transatlantic. Yes MSP is less congested and a nicer airport, but ORD has a lot more flight options to a lot more places. This means 1) better chance of landing in (or closer to) your European destination, as DL may not fly there from MS...Jump to post

If politics helps at all, (and these days I honestly have no idea), don't forget, AA did not attend the Trump White House meeting. Delta did.

Quite a lot of those incidents were the result of former military pilots who were unable to cooperate in a two-person cockpit as per modern MCC/CRM standards.

Why is ICN a bad Japan hub? It is not a horrible backtrack and offers unparalleled service to secondary Japanese cities (ICN has flights to 23 cities in Japan)...
