:lol: That's funny.......I stated, I had 3 glasses of wine not some backwash that has been bottled and purchased at a cheaper price than 2Buck Chuck at Trader Joe's.(You know me better,,,,,)I can't believe you drank 3 party cups filled with that screwcap garbage they have on the planes.
The US forum is 10x more active than the rest because we keep repeating the SAME topics (like this one) over and over and over again.

Idiots in Tempe
Management is clueless
ontime performance is more important than people's connections
service to china
merger with united
merger with northwest
penny wise pound foolish folks in Tempe
Fly4Free having never flown but sells vacations
Kirby's and ETOP's love affair
Party cups in FC
the horrible trash bags

we haven't discussed these yet, right?
I'm one of the "oldies" who migrated over here from Planebusiness.com when their idiot owner (I forgot her name) decided to charge for posting.
Planebusiness.com was the same way -- most of the activity was US. This site was pretty low-key until we all came over and stirred things up, and lots more people have joined since then; the snowball effect.
Why is this forum 10x as active? Because we tend to be 10x more p/o'dAfter the UAL dispatch computer fiasco, I thought I would check out their forum to see what had happened. There was one thread (started by Art) with a few lukewarm responses.
And it appears that the US forum has about 10x as many posts as the nearest competitor.
What is it about this airline that gets everybody so riled up and verbose? The others have been through their bankruptcies and dramas, but 1/10 as much?
Or are we just such techno-wizards that we can use this computer/internet tool so much more easily and effectively? (tongue-in-cheek comment, btw)
It's no wonder that we get a fair amount of comments from posters at other airlines. This is the only forum with life and spice. The others are downright BORING!
And things are not very Rosy at Northwest either. Management has alot of nerve to blame the cancellations on pilot absenteeism. I like NWA and fly them regularly.....they have employees that will probably take SO MUCH and then REALLY GIVE THEM A BATTLE that will expose the MANAGEMENT for the lying,thieving thugs they are. (US doesn't have Mgmnt which accounts for their lack of a Coupe' de tat)Why is this forum 10x as active? Because we tend to be 10x more p/o'd
