Tr0mBoNe: The airplane in the picture is an A320, not A380.
brantgoose: I like the idea of more direct flights between smaller cities. Since the major airlines got greedy and decided to fill seats for filling seats sake, regardless of the inconvenience, health or safety of the passengers, inter-city routes have become a ridiculous gauntlet of detours and lay-overs.Where are you flying from? Boston.Where are you flying to? New York.Where are you now? Atlanta, Chicago's O'Hare, Kinshasa, Heathrow, the New Jersey Wilds.Apparently only one of these airports is not on the route between Boston and New York. But Philadelphia is.That's why I stay on the ground complaining about airlines instead of flying.Of course, the only reason that Middle Eastern airlines fly direct routes is not that they aren't greedy but they simply can't get the routes to screw their passengers. The same is true of a number of small airlines in other places. Regional carriers tend to have more direct routes because they can't play "Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?" with you and your luggage. They're barely allowed into the big air hubs if at all.
