You have to know how the world turns if you want the world to turn your way!

You know honestly, it doesn't matter to me if we cover South America or not. I was just restating what GK has said publicly. Take it for what it's worth.

I enjoy flying in the states and getting done early (10-11am) after a short three day trip. I'll probably bid away from international and just keep maximizing my domestic schedule.

Hey Freight, have you learned how to fly the 300 from the right seat yet? I hear of some guys having real problems there. Remember the auto-throttles buddy. Serenity now!

PS - How's your AirTran Profit sharing account?

Naw, they'll just use the 300's, after another re-skin, and stop at about 5 places enroute. It'd be a fun trip, FLL-CCS-BOG-LIM. I'll bid it after I upgrade and take redklown with me and teach him to fly in the mountains, after he learns to shut his koksukr

Man; if only you'd learn that exact same thing. :blush:

Doesn't matter what the subject is; you always somehow turn it into a Southwest bash, highlighting your bitterness and angst: "blah blah blah, AirTran, blah blah blah, Southwest sucks, blah blah blah, I got screwed."

Too bad you don't work for Delta--you'd fit right in with General Lee and Bill Lumberg. :bawling:

I flew DC-8's to all points south, those same places you're salivating about but would kill yourself going to, unless some Captain plays seeing-eye dog for you. The -300 is kinda like a DC-8, just half as many throttles. I like flying it, been flying jets without autothrottles while you were still sukking milk out of a bottle so it's not much of an issue. I'm glad you have realized it's best to stay away from those intl routes. A man's got to know his limitations.

Should I start calling you Sir?


You should have really gotten hired at a major with so much experience and charm. Wait, I think they require both.

I'm not bashing SWA, I luv it here :) All the guys have been super-cool and I'm having a blast! Course, I haven't flown with you, I'm sure that would sukk and I'm sure most of your co-pilots would agree. :) Not really sure what all your "blah blah blah" is about but whatever. You have close to 2000 posts, I have about 925. Heed your own advice about keeping your mouth shut. Think about it

You know what Dog? I've been here since the beginning. You? Not so much.

As far as SW goes, I hear most of the FAT guys are happy here. And that's a good thing....I want them to be. I'm not so sure about your sincerity though. Why?(as SWA Bubba pointed out), all you want to do is turn this into a bitch-fest about how you lost your seat.

It's done an over, but if you want to spend your next 1,000 post lamenting about something you can't change, then have at.

Hey. Have a good weekend!

You've been where since the beginning, redklown? FlightInfo? You joined in 04. I joined in 02. Are you talking out of your ass again? Perhaps you're referring to SWA. If you were there from the beginning, only have 8000 hrs and still jerking gear you truly are a loser. Once again I have no idea what you're talking about but that makes two of us

Wow. I was wondering if this roach would crawl out from under his rock. Now back to selling double wides!

Dog,

'02 vs '04. Yea, you got me. Just shows how much of lurker you've been on here. What 70 post/yr? Have your wife give you a big hug tonight about not being a CA.

Just keep saying this...."I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me" You'll be just fine.

You guys should just take them out, measure them, and settle it like boys.

My 8 year old is more mature than either of you. Get a hobby.

I can't find any other news source for the route applications - seems odd. I would have imagined someone else would have picked this story up. Have there been any memos from SWA?

Makes a bigger media splash when the airline applying actually has equipment that can do it

You truly are an azzclown. Even when you're called out as being dead wrong, which is most of the time, you can't just shut your mouth. Now you give me chit about being a lurker, cause I don't post daily on chit that has nothing to do with me, or I know nothing about. I carry no ego into the cockpit I just try to do a good job no matter what seat I'm in. Try to contain your postings to things you actually know something about.

How ironic that the joker who works for the trailer park of the skies would make a joke about selling double-wides (I don't, by the way).
