Not to mention the Airbus A380 with a capacity of 555 passengers.

Just got back from a US Airway's flight. Had to sit on the runaway before departure, oh, for about an hour and a half. Was forced to board 45 minutes before take-off.

Pilot referenced the problem due to the crats in Washington. Seems they had to clear the skies for miles as BUSH was in the air on his way to New Orleans.

US CUSTOMS is now under Homeland Security, right? Two digit fingerprints and digital picture required.

One bag searched before placing them on the belt. Another bag searched after going through the machine. Husband frisked. I was picked out of the line for a purse search.

US Airways is up and running but can't afford pretzels for their passengers. Merging with AmericaWest.

Are they crumbling one by one in an effort to put them under regulation again by the Feds?

Oh, the joys of flying.

Just thought I'd share.

You were fingerprinted and had your picture taken going thru customs? Wow, things have gotten pretty bad. I went thru a pat-down search at London's Heathrow 3 years ago, which is now quite common.
How much worse can it get?

medical mafia any sum of money so they can cure

No, I wasn't fingerprinted, but the machine was right there on the counter and the notification was posted on the sign that informed passengers that US CUSTOMS was part of Homeland Security.

If they would have requested fingerprints, I was prepared to oppose to see what the outcome would have been.

Most probably conditioning us first, before it becomes standard procedure.

When my purse was being searched, the woman and I started talking about the bag of food I had with me and how meals are no longer served, pretzels are not available.

This is the information she gave me:

www.usair3000.com.

cheap fares and food.

Who the hell are they?

Oh, and while waiting on the plane for hours, three women and myself started having a "good time." Talking about Bush, the Hurricane and the "no food" available on US Airways any longer. We were becomming loud, laughing, etc. A man, two rows in front of me, turned around and told us to be quiet.

We became louder.

Last time I was on a flight to Texas, we were delayed on the runaway as well.

Maybe Bush was on his way to Crawford to dig up worms on the ranch.

blech, last time I went through an airports, I had my jacket, belt, and shoes off, and they were still concerned about the zipper in my jeans(wish I'd "packed" like Harry Shearer in "Spinal Tap").

Not that they'd picked on me, the poor old lady next to me standing partly clothed in the airport was explaining the process of hip replacement to the "courteous" security staff.

Unfortunately my sister has Spina Bifida, and had the MOST distressing time recently, with very felt up pat downs (the metal detectors are somehow attracted to her Harrington's rod operation). When the security person got to her leg bag of urine, and got all uppity, she was half inclined to say "don't touch that, it might go off)...I don't think that she'll air travel again.
