How about a TR (or 20) ? :)


Lots of them do not even exist anymore.

All of the domestic Chinese reports would be very similar:

Got to the airport
None of the other passengers wanted to politely stand in line
Plane was late arriving
Plane was late leaving the gate
Plane left gate and parked for an hour on some remote taxiway
All delays blamed on weather or "flow control"
Lavatories were dirty
No soap in the lavatories
Beer was warm
Every time the fasten seat belt sign is illuminated, some passenger gets up and argues with the flight attendant about it
Every time the plane lands and taxis people get up and start getting their stuff and argue with the flight attendant about it
I think that sums it up.  Except for Sichuan Airlines.  Every landing feels like a crash landing  :(

According to that, American Eagle should count. I think at some point it was determined to be if they sell their own tickets separate from the mother carrier. Did Song sell tickets through their own website?

IIRC Song and TED did sell through their own sites.

Which would you choose Delta boeing 757 or Virgin America A320-100, LAX to JFK ? And why?

I assume you're talking about in Y. I like VX over DL 757, but some of DL's 757 at least used to be the internationally configured ones which were a little nicer. The difference I found was that when reclining your seat the seat slid forward in addition to the back reclining.

Yes in Y, ok but that's a hit n miss if it will be that type 757, what about jet blue is it worth the extra miles? Ty

B6, VX and DL's miles are all worth about the same (ie not much at all).
