    I think it's time for a new Box thread that works. So, here goes.

    Edit:
    @Black Cloud sent me back here. Didn't have anything on page 3, this is the closest I can get. I feel so alone on this page now. Hello? Is anyone out there?

    Good afternoon new box. Time to close the old one. Life goes on. I see that the IAD-ROC flight landed only 3 17 minutes late. Evidently they had to switch planes. Even in the new box, some things never change.

    If the Box thread works, does that also mean we have to work?

    I should've been more clear about what it is. The new tool is for TATL wildcard searches, not regular searches.

    Thanks for the suggestion, however the destination has no UA branded club, and I gave up my membership last year. I think I'm going to go with DL, even knowing the :rolleyes: I will take from HeathrowGuy, on the grounds that mainline > CR7s and US's 734s, and there are more flights from ATL to the destination than from CLT, in case the :rolleyes: hits the fan. The extra UA miles would be nice, but 800-ish miles shouldn't make a difference either way.

    Thanks all for the advice.

    That's mine, too! I did it many years ago in a 727 :eek:

    I booked the Ho Inns in ELP & SHV so nothing too exotic but they did save me a hundred bucks!

    Basic box question
    Is it ok to take the missus to Montreal and leave her at the hotel while I go flying in a CV-580 and G-1 for half a day. She has no desire to bounce around in a "prop plane" (and cannot see spending $800 on an aviation barbarian :confused::p ). I could just give her the money I would have spent and tell her to go shopping (which she also hates to do).
    Should I try and convince her that flying old obsolete aircraft is fun???
