“American Airlines still loves its MD-80s, an excellent reason to never fly American.”
I posted that just two days ago. And as if on cue, another American Airlines Flying Casket MD-80 pulled up lame today. Worse, it exhibited the exact symptoms that both Alaska 261 and my January 2000 flight experienced.
“…Passengers and crew heard “kind of a bang” and the plane lost cabin pressure.”
Eight of American’s nine daily flights from Dallas to Seattle and SFO are MD-83s. And these weasels charge you extra for baggage, too.
