It’s a bummer. Those of us who have an interest in civil aviation have noticed. Tyler is doing good stuff around military stuff, but you guys were just starting to roll. Jalopnik succeeds due to the passion of the writers and you guys were bringing that to the aviation stuff.
Weird. I used to read it, but havent been on it in a couple months, and now looking at it I see that the normal Jalop guys seem to have been posting it, but maybe not on the FP? Honestly, I really didn’t understand why they’ve tried to create so many sub-blogs. Sucks that Flight Club is no more :/ I’ll pour one out…
Absolutely...my now ex-wife who works for a Alaska out of Seattle, hooked up with not only pilots, but her “inflight boyfriends” as well—customers. “Larissa,” would come home from layovers (Florida, Hawaii, Mexico) and the proof was all over her face, clothes, etc. She thought everyone at her job loved her...Well, I…
Southwest made its first flights out of Kansas City back in 1982 with six daily departures to two cities. Fast forward 30 years and the airline now serves 60 destinations and 156 departures originating from Missouri. To commemorate the anniversary, this Boeing was emblazoned with a painting of the Missouri state flag.
Surprised they didn't put a "kin" after ANA. For completeness.
Merchandising, Merchandising, Merchandising!!!!
A star for you just for popping in.
Nice to see you around here from time to time, Paul. Flown on anything interesting lately?
seriously made me laugh. This is disgusting.
That explains things. It is a shitty thing to do though. Some people just read the headline, and they'd assume that flying Southwest was unsafe, when the truth of the matter is that Southwest self-reported this issue and took steps to fix it as soon as they discovered the problem.
Well, this *is* gawker.
Yeah, shouldn't we be commending Southwest for taking quick action to rectify the problem?
What the story is: oops, Southwest missed an inspection and are getting right on it, but there is nothing to worry about really.
You are always welcome here on Oppo. Feel free to drop a link anytime. I am very interested in seeing how the A350 performs in the next few months. It didn't take too long for the 787 to start showing issues.
Good luck, Dude! You had good stuff on this site and I hope you inform us where you will be next!
My maternal grandfather flew the crap out of those things back in the day in 1943-44. He would probably have clubbed baby seals for an opportunity to fly one while not carrying tons of bombs or getting shot at or with flak damage. I'm sorry they replaced you here at Flight Club. The new writer is um... idk. If you are…
Paul, your posts here have been truly first rate, I've enjoyed them hugely. This is a real shame - I can't see how you could have done any better.
Im a little late to finding this post.
