Wow, haven't read the onion in years.
Happy to see it hasn't lost that sick and twisted slant. :-)

But, be really careful. Yesterday, one of their attorneys, Jack Dahleger (sp?), said this on NPR's Morning Edition:

"If we don't get our costs down to a level that they match our revenue, then the future is bleak."

I dunno, maybe it's just me. But I run a couple of businesses (successfully, so far) and just making costs match revenues don't exactly, say, feed the kitty. wink

Well, if Delta stays in business for a bit longer I can take advantage of frequent flyer miles just given to me by a friend who says he's through flying (he just retired). I have a free trip somewhere in the caribbean or Central America! Wooooo Hooooo! laugh

Wooo Hooooo is right. Just booked my "free trip" to AC for August. Cannot believe that AA Advantage awards are booking that far out.

Found that if you can not get your free ticket when you call in, call again in a few days, early in the day if you can. Have also found that the phone is better then the internet for Frequent Flyer awards. The agents seem to be able to look at more variations, such as partners, alternative dates and such. I have had this work even last minute.

LOL doesn’t that just figure! I have 400-500K Delta miles but had to book with AA since Delta’s Saturday only schedule didn’t work for our group!

Oh well if AC lives up to its’ rep on here I’m sure I’ll be back…

10 days and counting…
