I would take a MEM -ATL commute any day over MEM LGA or our other bases. Geeze you got an average of 10 flights per day. It's not always full, and half the time the Nonrev's are no shows. I would love to have that many options if I lived in Memphis.

From AUS/SAT I would have 14-16 options instead of the 4-6 to DTW and I'm still debating about switching bases.

One thing's for sure is that there are no shortage of mainliners telling me to avoid it.

I hear MEM ATL is death from Memphians, but I've checked a few random days and loads seem far better than DTW ATL and even DTW MEM.

My ipad is over 2 years old, and I use between 15-25% per day, with no juice ups. And because it is used, my battery life form 99-60% goes quickly.

If you have a company one, and use more than 15-25% per day, you're probably just leaving it on too much.
Ok thanks for all the responses. I've not run it for 8 hours continuous screen on time as someone mentioned, but it seems if I extrapolate the timeline, I doubt I would get that. Either way, I'll try to have more screen off time. This is my first Apple product, so I don't feel as at home as with Android.

MEM to LGA/JFK is easier with open flights on American, Delta and FedEx. Never had an issue.

It also helps not to have apps in the background also. If you exit out of an app just close it.

Well one more week until 17-01 is published. Can't wait to see how the upgrades go.

Had mine for several months now and it's not new at all. I end a 5 leg day with around 85% or so. Sometimes 90%.
The battery life is great on these things.

Default OPR Bonus.. Good Luck

Effective 3 weeks ago.. DTW/LGA Aircraft Maintenance has been picking up all the ExpressJet Maintenance in both stations. Daddy Delta pulled it from parent company SkyWest and gave it to 9E. In both stations it equates to 30-40% increase in workload with wait for it... no additional personnel. If you think this won't have an impact on 9E mx and performance numbers... think again. But hey, as long as Ed thinks we are the cats *** that is really all that matters. I tried to give a print out of Ed saying how great 9E is in exchange for grocery payment last week and well let's just say...
