It's an excellent roundup! Really remarkable, getting all the emotions and information about two very complex topics into a short space. And the rest is amazing, as usual.

I know you are not looking to add anything, but if you can somehow link @Yehuda57's brilliant take on proportionate responses, I think it will be a positive. Unless you are worried he will sue for using too much of his content in roundups...  ;)

around so quickly, but they did.

Maybe replace the second pronoun-they, to a more clearly defined subject

But hey, at least you donít need an ID to go to a baseball game. So I guess that makes MLB less hypocritical than American and Delta, both of which require ID to check bags for their flights.

"I just want to know more about the not knowing you’re pregnant for 29 weeks. Can someone explain to me how that’s possible?"

Don't worry, Dan, not gonna happen to you.

Cases like this make the news every year.  Usually a woman who's been gaining weight for other reasons (obesity, inactivity, medication, etc) and so doesn't pay attention to another 10-20 pounds.  Is able to explain away other symptoms, eg, due to chronic digestive problems, endocrine conditions.

ETA: I don't mean that they happen on a plane every year!  More common is a woman is at home, feels abdominal cramps, goes to the bathroom, and is surprised to see that what comes out is not a bowel movement.

Someone I know only found out at about 29 weeks pregnant due to the fact that they were nursing and thought they couldn't get pregnant

@Dan Working on a post discussing United's new fleet additions and refurbishing? Good to know they're going to add seat back entertainment to every plane and not going the AA route.

Interesting. On this note - I never understood the push to avoid putting screens at every seat. Don't you think any marketing company would jump at the opportunity to put a screen in front of passenger stuck on an airplane? It pays for itself over and over in marketing value.

Am I missing something?

AA sees itself competing with Spirit/Frontier. It saves weight and money (penny-wise), but makes anyone with families choose Delta/JetBlue/United over AA (pound-foolish). No seat back entertainment makes it look like a cheap airline and not a premium airline, too.

It's not penny-wise. Installing screens pays for itself in marketing dollars. You don't have to charge more for it. In fact, if the company is not interested in investing capital in installing screens, I'm sure there are dozens of marketing companies that would be willing to pay for the privilege of installing those screens.

Wow, that was a quick turnaround! Order a post, and 35 minutes later it's up on the website.

Dan, can I place an order? I'd like a thread detailing the temperaments of each airline's CEO. I'll take it with a side of personal stories.  ;)
