This is one of those things that I'm sure the flying public loved to b*tch and moan about. Just like how passengers are complaining about airlines charging to check even one bag now. But really,...

"Cockpit" is not PC?

Recently I saw a post in a thread about how it's the "flight deck" and not the "cockpit." I guess I've known that airline pilots today refer to it as the "flight deck" over the PA, but it never...

Just my opinion, but I really dont think it looks like anything spectacular--Just a bunch of white with the word "Delta" written on it. Yeah, it's shiny, but isnt every newly painted aircraft???
