  1. Nice zinger against Mister Alec “I crave media attention” Baldwin.

    The AA incoming flight info reminded me of my TWA days when I had a supervisor sign and could track aircraft numbers to see the past three day history of an aircraft and the next three days for that aircraft. Anytime I was traveling I always checked the aircraft I was going to be on to see what it was doing. Even if I had a morning flight out, I would check to make sure the aircraft actually came in the night before. That way if I knew there was a problem, I would change my plans before being surprised right before flight time.

  2. What happened to the “good ole days” when the same plane was used all the way through the entire flight? This just confuses passengers thinking they are making a “stop” when they are actually making a “connection.” If a different plane is used for different segments, then the FAA should require a different flight number to be used,
