    Discuss. (It would be nice if it was not against the laws of physics and possible without refueling too. [​IMG])

    BOS-LAS (that was a great flight, especially with the 7pm'ish departure)

    ATL-FAR

    Really had hoped the merger would bring this, as I was living in ATL at the time. I guess even now it would be nice, as I'd have two ways to fly from LHR to FAR with a single connection.

    SDF-SLC

    On a bright note, it looks like SDF is going from 1 mainline on SDF-ATL to 4-5 mainline's daily in April and into the summer schedule. Non-stop to SLC would be a big plus since DTW/MSP/CVG are down to 3 RJ's daily.

    I bet. Of course almost any XXX - LAS flight is an interesting flight at the very least.

    I don't like direct flights. They are less fun and earn the bare minimum MQM's. I much prefer routings like I did last November, ORD-MEM-BNA-MSP-CDG-PSA, rather than something weak and low value like ORD-PSA (Pisa).

    Gargle, I think all of this posting is making you light-headed. [​IMG]

    no, I just have my priorities. Flying serves two purposes- get you somewhere and earn you points/miles/status. It's necessary that you maximize both for the bare minimum of expenditure.

    Personally, I prefer non-stop flights over direct ones.

    I don't need it right now but SLC-DRO back in the mix would be good. I also think they need SLC-FLG. IND-CVG would give my life more options too.

    I was thinking the same thing, actually. I wonder how many of the city pairs people will come up with here are actually served by direct (but not non-stop) flights.

    I mostly fly MHT-LAS nonstop on WN now. Last flight, the guys behind me had a 'bar tab' that approached $100. [​IMG]

    (2 guys X 6 single shot drinks (or 3 real drinks) X $7 = $84) ??

    I only caught the part when the FA came over to settle up; she did mention that she was 'comping' a round. Perhaps, WN has a deal if you purchase 10+ drinks you get two for free. [​IMG]

    Purely selfish would be BNA-WAS (preferably BNA-DCA, clearly non-hubs), as the only mainline is BNA-BWI on the airline mentioned below ...

    At least under the old version of RR, I always had enough drink coupons - most of my credits were earned with rental cars (not flights), so four tickets per award ... ;)
