Oh, I see. By "mental midgets", you were referring to people who get their news from "USA Today". In that, I concur.

Well Steph, as one of my high school classmates used to say when someone got it almost correct, "Pert nert - but not plumb", if I'd been writing that sentence I'd of inserted an "all" in there so that it would've read "referring to people who get *all* their news from "USA Today".

>>but the Azores B767 was indeed a very close call.<<

Umm, A330? And if you're going to sit there without noticing that you're pumping all the fuel over the side, you can do that in a ten-engined airplane as easily as a two-engined airplane.

So which will happen: Restoration of cleaning service, restoration of food service, or neither? If I had to guess, I'd say the third option.




I'm guessing the fourth option: "We'll sell you this crumby snack box for 5 bucks and prohibit you from bringing your own messy food on board." You heard it here first. Gag!

Joe

B - re>>Sometimes the book runs out of pages<<

True, but sometimes it only takes one (first) page for someone sitting at a "BMD".

>>That's when you have know the systems<<

Again, concur to the Nth power! To quote my ole "light running" chum from Big Spring/Lomax, "I think you done broke the code!"

Yeah, I worry about that.

Lots to mull over, after a trip IND>MSP>SEA>MSP>IND last week. Unfortunately, in my new job, more airline repositions than before (this one was vacation). Learned to bring my own food, as the gourmet pretzels get tiring. Didn't know, besides not getting an aisle seat for the requisitive $15, that NWA charged $2 or $5 for the 'pretzels'. Glad anymore to stop at the local Panera and grab a sandwich or salad to carry on board, probably ought to bring extras and make a profit, as most look at me in envy (to avoid thread creep, I do give the remnants to the F/A).

And, might as well stick this in.... I know the TSA changed the 'rules', but much appreciate MSP having restaurants inside security, as opposed to IND where you must leave security to get decent (sic) food. Did have to laugh at the airline pilot (we're in MSP, so you guess the flavor) sitting at the table next to the soda machine, drinking multiple cups of soda from his 'water' glass.....maybe he had to pay for the newspaper that morning?

Oops, one other question? F/A on one of the flights had an FAA 'license' hanging around his neck (it was of the new green/blue badges). When I asked him what license he held, he told me that all F/A's are now FAA-licensed? He went on to tell me about all the training required of F/A's, and about 'ALL' that lost their licenses when 'they' started doing ten year background checks???
