  1. Regarding seat blocks due to passenger weight issues, I’m shocked they don’t need to block more seats. Counting carry on bags, I would think most folks are exceeding a total weight of 200 lbs with some approaching 300 lbs.

  2. Either the TSA or a baggage handler wrote an extremely vulgar message on a bag checked in on a multi-person reservation. The bag weighed close to 70 lbs and apparently either the TSA employee or the baggage handlers didn’t like it and communicated the message by writing vulgarities on the exterior of the bag.

  3. If Delta wants to send a signal to Alaska, starting SEA-TPE flights is an odd way to do it. There is stiff competition on that route or will be when Starlux adds its flights.

  4. Someone should fly Delta one way from SEA to TPE and EVA the other way in coach (or vice versa) and then report on the flights. Can a premium airline for premium customers compete with an Asian airline? Compare flight prices and convenience of departure and arrival times, too.

  5. Could have left a stronger message just by letting the bag get left behind. But either way not a good idea despite being frustrated.
