Comparing Airlines

travel american airlines interior An accounting student compares American Airlines to its bankrupt competitors.

My Financial Data and Statement Analysis class is going fairly well. My final project for that course will be comparing three major airline corporations and its subsidiary companies: American Airlines, Delta Airlines, and United Airlines although Delta and United Airlines are bankrupted, American Airlines will be the likely corporation to invest in if only those three were an option to invest money on, but I would look to other airlines for better investing opportunities. This class is most enjoyable. This course is actually something I can use and apply when I want to invest some day.

Troubles With The FBI

Travelers point out Northwest Airline's security problems on their blog at their own risk.

Via iArarat, news that 24-year-old Armenian-American computer science student Christopher Soghoian has had a run-in with the FBI for highlighting an airline security flaw. Soghoian was responsible for creating a web site that generated fake boarding passes for Northwest Airlines.

Maybe not the smartest FBI policy.

Cheaper To Fly Than Park

travel airport parking It may be cheaper to fly Southwest Airlines than it is to park for your trip.

Last weekend I was out in PA visiting with Will, Davis, Griffin and Mundis, and I can honestly say that I had a truly awesome weekend of drinking, talking shit and jamming with the gang. Thanks to Southwest Airlines and their $49 airfare each way, I’m pretty sure this won’t be the only time I fly in to Pittsburgh. Shit. My parking at Midway was as expensive as a one-way ticket, so it’s not like it’s prohibitive. I can’t even drive to Milwaukee and back for less money these days.

Bye, Bye Pension

travel delta pilots Delta Airline Pilots learned the hard way about pension security.

In a recent instance, hundreds of retired Delta Airlines pilots learned their pension payments are coming to an end – at least until the PBGB comes across with its drastically reduced payments. Some even received bills for medical services that formally were taken out of their pension checks.

Longsheng County

travel longsheng longji Longji and Ailing hot springs are the standout attractions in this account of Longsheng County.
Longsheng County locates in Guilin 100 miles from the northwest; it is famous at home and abroad for its strange stones, beautiful rivers and the custom of the minority. In my opinion, Longji (the back of a dragon) terrace and Ailing hot spring attract me most.

Wishing For Beijing

travel beijing This blogger dreamed of travel to Beijing.
Beijing (Peking) is well known for its flatness and regular constructions. Like the configuration of the Forbidden City, Beijing has concentric "ring roads", which are actually rectangular, that go around the metropolis. It was also the seat of the Qing dynasty emperor until the formation of a republic in 1911, so it has rich historical sites, and important government institutions. Taking a travel to Peking is my long-cherished wish. In the golden autumn of 2000, I achieved what I’d dreamed for a long time, that was visiting to the heart of our motherland—Peking, and I really experienced its fantastic scene.

Way Too Early To Be On BART.

travel delta airlines Delta scores for this BART rider.

But I made it. Here I am on the flight to Atlanta, Georgia where I transfer to a small flight to Birmingham, Alabama, arriving five minutes before I left. Magically, I scored one of those coach seats just behind the first class wall, which means more leg room and only one person to my right. Not bad Delta Airlines, not bad. Perhaps the most surprising thing I found on Delta’s radio network is a station that plays electronic music. They also had a program where Elvis Costello is the MC. Someone is doing their job at Delta.

Time Machine: What I was Reading in October, 2002

travel amtrak lake shore An old post and a ride on the Amtrak Lake Shore Limited.

On a recent October night, after the FBI released one of its now customarily nebulous warnings (in this case that Al Quaeda might be targeting American railway systems next), I happened to be asleep on board Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited, bound from Albany, NY to Chicago.
