Nov 14th 2012 3:08PM I'm a 6 foot male, approx 235 lbs, I fit the seats okay without encroachment into the next seat and the arm rest divider functions fine, my knees to touch the seat back in front however. For me If I was over-flowing into the next passengers space the first conversation I would offer to buy them lunch and drink on the flight for their inconvience, or bring along and offer a $20 gift-card for a common store or restaurant to thank them for putting up with a little extra closeness. ...couldn't hurt....and cheaper than buying another seat or causing bad feelings.
Apr 2nd 2011 2:15PM The airlines are contributing to the problem by charging extra fee's for upgraded services and seats. If I had paid extra bucks for an exit roll seat I would not agree to having my seat reassigned unless I received a future free flight for the inconvience. Special Needs passengers know what they need to do to prepare for a flight in advance. If they can't acquire the needed services prior then they should find a flight that does, either on another later flight or another airline. Stop making fellow passengers feel guilty for their own special needs stupidity, and make the airlines screen the special needs passengers before it gets to extremes.
Mar 16th 2011 1:40PM Boeing continues to make the best aircraft in the world as demonstrated by this newest edition of the 747, the worlds icon jumbo and with the proven track record. I suspect that Airbus can only groan with the introduction of this tough competitor taking future sales away from their A-380 program, which looks like will never break-even financially and troubled with engine problems. Perhaps they can give their planes away with their countries subsidizdising efforts.. Meanwhile, congratulations to Boeing.
Mar 6th 2011 4:05PM Let this be a warning to folks, don't touch, hold, google, play, or even smile at a strange infant, or you might find yourself to regret being a kind and helpful person when something snaps in a whacko parents head I think that flight attendant probably used bad judgement in getting involved in peek a boo infant play, pretty dumb to put it in a storage bin under any conditions, just setting himself up for momma whacko.
Feb 22nd 2011 6:13PM My comments to the CRY-BABBIES. Stop your emotional reaction and open your logical mind. If a few moments of security bothers you then you need to find alternative transportation. If a few moments of security prevents a disaster in the sky then thankfully it was not in vain. We're at war and it's time to stop being prissy. Having been in a 737 that was tumbling out of the sky because of an engine explosion and weak secondary engine power in a flight back in 1989 I would have done anything to have tried to prevent this disaster. Luckily at the third time our aircraft was about to flip we leveled and power surged from the right engine to save us from doom. I can only imagine a terrorist explosion aboard a flight and know folks would regret that the TSA wasn't there to inspect and stop the threat. LIsten to someone who experienced a close call and wake up to reality.

Jan 18th 2011 4:46PM I wouldn't care to "google" Zsa Zsa...no way! hee hee,
But I do remember all the fun watching her on Merv and Johnny years past, glamorous and the life of the party. Also luv her feisty attitude with that Los Angeles patrolman when she gave him a hot-slap for giving her a ticket, talk about spunk! Wish Miss Zsa Zsa good times ahead.
Jan 4th 2011 2:15AM ALL HEAR THIS: BRING A SMALL FLASHLIGHT. If power goes out such as it did during a recent cruise for four days off of Mexico last month, you will be the envy of all the other passengers that you came prepared and had a personal flash light for dark hallways and rooms, also bring extra batteries. NOW THIS IS SOMETHING THAT CRUISE LINES SHOULD TELL BRING.
Jan 2nd 2011 3:26PM San Diego's Lindbergh Field is number 10 on "exteme airports" white-knucklewise in terms of landing and take-off's on a single runway, is like landing on an aircraft carrier between highrises and hills, but it's Americas most convienent airport next to the harbor,downtown and a most beautiful city to observe from a window while landing, airport buildings are attractive and inviting, a favorite destination.
Dec 29th 2010 10:38PM I'm surprised that airlines continue to buy these death traps until they make sure that the Rolls Royce engines are safe and stable, even then I recommend passengers choose Boeing aircraft for quality built airliners.
