    Renaming IAD Airport?

    I don't see the point...yet. Who knows, perhaps after his passing the possibility of naming the airport after Trump could work? Not now. That's almost as stupid as American Airlines naming its annual aircraft maintenance award after an active mechanic and company lackey like they do now. Makes...

    American Airlines Sad Show

    Airlines have you completely at their mercy and it sucks. AA totally screwed my husband which caused him to miss a fishing trip years in the making. Flight delayed and deplaned, he was going to miss his connection to Key West. While in the hour +line (me in the hour+ line on the phone at home )...
