local airline stuff
This week has been slow for blogging content. At least for me, too many personal things going on that either I can’t blog about or they are just not that interesting. In the mean time, I am planning a trip to see a friend in Missouri – Dixon, Missouri… where long, permed hair is still all the rage. The final leg of my journey will be on one of those little puddle jumper planes, and I have never flown on one of those before. I emailed a pilot friend about it and he replied that the plane was a safe one, but not really that nice.
Speaking of flying out of Dallas, how funny it is that American Airlines has to pay for a study that says that if the Wright Amendment is lifted it will be a bad thing for DFW. How can it be bad for Dallas/Ft. Worth if it has served its purpose, which was to allow DFW to grow and become the major international airport that it is? This has been done, and the time has come to do away with the Wright Amendment and allow Southwest Airlines to give AA some real competition. I would have liked to have chosen another carrier this time but that wasn’t an option. I am hoping that by the next time I fly some where I will have a better selection of airlines, and fares, to choose from.
