  1. I had precheck on all segments for EWR-IAD-DUB with a 14 hour IAD layover. No problems at all.

  2. Does anyone have information if the AA seatback inflight entertainment systems will provide an option to display captions?

    Continental and certain Cathay Pacific IFE system provide such an option.

  3. Received a little “tsa pre” check on my UA domestic e boarding pass this morning. Was nice to know that it would happen before arriving. Maybe this is old news, but it was new for me!

  4. AA LAX-YYZ again gets the shaft. This flight is always full of studio actors doing their shoots in Toronto – I’m surprised that it’s not considered more of a premium route.

  5. re: Black’s BBQ- I have never been there, but I ordered a bottle of their sauce a while back and did not like it at all. I’ve actually been to a couple of places where this has been the case, and the food onsite was far better than their bottled sauce would suggest. Hoping to get to Black’s one day to check it out.

  6. @easy victor – Lockhart BBQ isn’t about the sauce. it is about the meat without sauce. you don’t need sauce, so there’s no reason to invest in good sauce
