    interiors; more hi-tech looking.

    Having lived in Seattle lo these many centuries, I'm supposed to wave the pompoms for "The Lazy B."

    I think the MD merger really screwed with the upper management.
    Moving HQ to Chicago only endeared them to the anti-union mouthbreathers who clogged the local birdcage liner (The Seattle Times) LTEs with their drivel.

      are as others have said is down to the airline. The most configurable is the A380 which can go from all "cattle class" to the height of luxury with individual bedrooms in first class. A380 interiors outfitting is carried out in Germany, not sure about the more standard interiors in the smaller jets.

        It was very nice. I've flown business class on other airliners but I've never had so much room.

        It was almost civilized.

        If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
