Certainly, in the grand scheme of things, this is trivial. After all, I arrived safely within about an hour of schedule with no missed connections, got upgraded on all segments, got served doubles inflight and had my fill of Kettle Chips. I do think it is remarkable that I've come to expect (and to a certain extent, take for granted) ontime departures and PDBs. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Also wondering if there's a policy (West) regarding the omission of PDBs when a flight is delayed. Most delays were weather related...including a de-icing....in SJC().
