    From a Coworker:
    1. Set Parking Brakes
    2. Run Engines Up
    3. Push really hard on the pedals when you forgot Step 1

    Don't forget to chop the throttles.

    On the plus side, the engines did work.

    I should have added my suggestions:
    4. Throw Engines in reverse
    5. When forward momentum stops, kill engines.

    Me too! But I bet they would if the mistakes involved $70-80M hanging precariously in plain view of the world! :eek:

    Going to be in EC on a 738 JFK-FLL (hoping for PTVs on that one) and 752 ATL-BOS...

    One week until I'll be on vacation again. Also now trying to book a trip to SEA but DL is a bit expensive. Got the $100 cert but still. Hopefully prices will go down tomorrow.
