There's a reason they always come out on top of satisfaction surveys.
it'd be tough for me because i have so many frequent flier miles with northwest. the only reason i went with northwest is because one of their hubs is here so i figured i'd always have a better chance getting a flight to where i wanna go with them compared to someone else. and it is true, we have three terminals and half of them are devoted to northwest. terminal a is all just northwest flights. but if southwest were to start servicing this city, i suppose i'd just cash out all my miles and use them instead.

I have trouble with Southwest due to lack of seat assignments. I'm too anal for that.

Especially on peak hour trams on sections of track where there's more than one route, all of which are running at frequencies of five minutes or less.
oh god, now that's just retarded. usually what i do is stand up as it's stopping, so i'm all ready to walk out when it's at the stop. i usually sit close to the front so being up at the door is a non-issue for me.

It's always worth it for takeoff and landing.

Runway 23 approach at Auckland - where when you're coming from the west it requires overflying the city, turning over my suburb and then a long final with great views of either the city or towards the Waikato.

I think they now give out zones, so earlier check ins get you on earlier, but no actual assignments...but I could be wrong.

But in airports I grow docile, go figure.

Once Delta and Northwest have merged i wouldn't bet on Memphis still being a hub.....perhaps you could package yourself up and go FedEx.

Right, yeah. What's a real pain in the arse on peak hour trams is when you get trapped in the middle and need to make your way through a crush loading to the door. The combination of people who are pinned in a spot and can't move for you and idiots who just won't move for you means you sometimes worry "shit, will I get to the door in time for my stop?"
