    Default American Airlines

    We have been tough on them before

    I have changed my routine lately and am using them
    They have some advantages

    Unlike UAL you can check in online
    When you buy the more space seat you free drinks and early boarding
    They let you order a sandwich in advance

    All good for me

    Doing SDQ to PHL today and then on to the UK Thursday

    So far so good

    AA is decent. I use mostly AA when traveling back and forth to the Western USA. I can now travel from the West Coast to SDQ the same day on AA, leave early am and arrive around 10:00pm in SDQ. Where previously it was mostly taking a overnight flight. Plus stopping in Charlotte as opposed to Miami is much more appealing to me. Have a good flight and trip WW.

    ????? I check in online with UAL all the time starting at 24 hrs before departure.


    When you buy the more space seat you free drinks and early boarding
    Is that coffee, tea, milk,,, or booze


    They let you order a sandwich in advance
    Is the sandwich free?
    Enjoy the trip to the UK.

    We had VIP arrival in PHL....

    Medical problem in the rear...
    no circling to land ... a huge bank and a dive down
    Brakes that made the belts work...
    straight across the runway - traffic stopped except for the ambulance
    and deplane at the closest gate to the terminal....

    I don't suppose a dead body would get the same treatment

    Woman fainted... sugar levl and blodd pressure issue -- said my seatmate
    The SWAT team member who helped

    OK? I landed once in PTY (Panama) with a dead guy in the seat two behind me. Heart attack is what folks said.

    I cannot begin to imagine being in the seat next to the deceased. Perhaps, I can purchase an in-flight upgrade with my points. Yup, I shall continue to get the aisle seat.

    Glad to hear that William. I'm using them to go back from California to Santiago on Thursday. (I upgraded at least for the long leg).
