  1. That is a premium emergency exit slide exclusively for Delta customers.

    You’re welcome.

  2. Although further from London than Heathrow, Gatwick is so much easier to navigate. There is a rail line into London as well. I only wish they flew to LGW from Atlanta.

  3. The APA memo about an increased number of maintenance oversights at AA is certain to raise the prospect of greater pause for safety esp. since there is an acknowledgement that the FAA could have chosen to audit AA instead of or in addition to UA.

    someone failed to disarm the door at LGW.

  4. That little mouse is nothing. 30 or so years ago, walking through the TWA concourse in STL after waiting with my parents to board their delayed London flight, I saw a cat sitting on one of the gate counters (I think it was C24) but it wasn’t a cat it was a RAT, about 10 – 13 lbs worth eating the ticket printer paper.
