  1. I did read yesterday WSJ article on placing hotels at airports. Not a real written article, except the rendering of the future Denver airport hotel, does make it look like the non-Trump built Taj Mahal.

    Is the real negative of flying in and staying downtown; the hassle of getting back and forth or the avoidance of urban issues, aka crimes.

  2. If you’ve never been on a 9 across DC-10CF, then this will seem bad. If you have, you’ll appreciate that with these new design seats, it won’t be as bad as that middle seat was on a cheap Martinair flight.

  3. This should mean more award availability on AKL-LAX and SFO.. All you East Coasters can start connecting in Houston starting in December. Awesome 😀

  4. Martinair was painful enough in their “business class”. I don’t want to think about their coach product.
