Well I certainly like the Delta liveries and seating on the E170/5 aircraft, but my favorite is the MD-99.99999

It has 273 rows in 5-abrest seating, powered by two tail-mounted Pratt & Whitney JT-8D-236A's with thrust ratings double that of a GE-90 and capacity similar to an A-380.

My understanding is that you do need extra care in not scraping the tail on this aircraft, and that getting around a tight corner on a taxiway can be tough, but Dummy Pilot is handling it with total genius.

Not as much extra care as with an A321 (which Delta now also has. And I mean actual Delta).

Man, do I love ironing- even without ROFLMAO humor.

Some interesting bickering going on there. ATL making a big deal about Republic, A few folks piling on (me included) that that it is a well-deemphasized fact. Tee Vee pointing out some interesting legalities about lost baggage.

And then TeeVee tries to jab ATL for feeling superior to EXACTLY what ATL was a few short years ago...

...and a nice dose of ironing for ATL making a brutally factual statement- that is actually jab-free- and getting the whole forum membership's panties in a wad...hopefully they have all Naired recently.

They never liked facts over there. I don't see anyone making a "big deal" out of Republic, just some factual statements being made, and, more recently, a well-articulated opinion.

Big deal (italicized)
I don't see anyone making a "big deal" (quote marks)...a well-articulated opinion.
Ummmm...whatever wiggle words suit you my friend

I see where someone "gets similarly irked", and thought's that it's the "most damaging thing" and "biggest scam"...

...thinkin' there's a tad of "firmness" in these beliefs, along with a strong dose of validity. Maybe "firmness" in quotes and italics works for you?

As to "well-articulated"...I offer a simple Indeed and will see if Tee Vee will process it with logic or courtroom theatrics.

Sorry, only one option possible.
I forgot the Tu-144D :cry: .

Everything seems pretty fine indeed. Evan has not expressed any opinion yet (well, that's actually a big disappointment) and even Brianie is hoping you are happy (after some Pence Force One total disaster shenannigans), but LH-B744 is apparently not very fond of your Señor El Presidente Electo :( .

Señor El Presidente Electo :( .
I missed the subtle humour here...that would be in contrast to Señorita El Presidente Not_Electo
