By: Date: October 6, 2014 Categories: Air Travel,Airlines Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

As I start this five part series on my own ranking of the airlines, I have to say that these rankings are all of my own choosing, and have to do solely by my experiences first hand, or because of things I’ve read (from credible sources). So when you’re ready to go on a trip,…

So my shitty experiences on Delta, and some rather shaky/scary experiences on Skywest (“This is your Captain speaking. I’m sorry about the delay, but when we landed, a piece fell off of the airplane.  We had to find it and figure out what piece it was before we could fix it.”), I’ve decided to put…

So why am I so hard on Delta Airlines?
By: Date: October 5, 2014 Categories: Air Travel,Airlines,F'd Up Issue of the Week Tags: , , ,

If you follow my twitter feed, then you’ll note that as of late, I’ve had some not very nice things to say about Delta.  Now don’t get me wrong; they are a big airline, and they have a very nice route map.  But I have to say it’s not the route map or the size…

So I recently had some questions and posited some opinions in the Alaska vs. Delta frenemies shuffle that’s been going on the last few months – and I got some stuff wrong.  But not only that, I got some prognostication wrong as well.  So now I’m here to hopefully fix all that. First thing is,…

Who will make the next move in the Alaska Airlines vs Delta frenemies shuffle?
By: Date: March 25, 2014 Categories: Air Travel,Airlines Tags: , , , ,

So there’s been a bunch of new developments along the lines of Alaska Airlines and their partner Delta.  When Delta started expanding into Alaska’s territories, things got bad.  Alaska started to retaliate, with some pretty bold moves into Salt Lake City, going from service just from Seattle to nearly every big airport in the West….

Two sides to every story

So there’s a headline that caught my eye of, “US appeals court revives lawsuit vs United Airlines over wheelchair,” and I immediately did a Scooby Doo “Ruh roh” double-take, then went to the article.  Seems a woman had an issue with asking for a wheelchair from an agent; the woman had back problems and the…

About this electronics stuff…
By: Date: November 8, 2013 Categories: Air Travel,Airlines Tags: , , , , , , ,

Okay, so first it was Delta and jetBlue that got the okay to go gate-to-gate with electronic gadgets.  Then it was American.  I had a question from a friend on this new policy, because he flew Delta mainline, where they announced the new policy, and then flew a Delta Connection flight, where the flight attendant…

Scuttlebutt on the AA/US merger – Thoughts?
By: Date: September 23, 2013 Categories: Air Travel,Airlines Tags: , , , , ,

So it should be no secret to those that follow me on here or on Twitter that I primarily fly Alaska Airlines.  I’ve been curious about the announced American/US Airways merger since day one – mostly because American is a partner with Alaska Airlines.  Not as strong a partner as Delta, but still – a…
