So yesterday, I was on a US Airways plane back to DC from Florida. The plane was ascending, had a little turbulence. I was trying to work, so I attempted to log onto the wi-fi. As I pulled out my credit card, the card slipped from my hands, falling to the back of the plane, where I thought I would never see it again. I had another card, fortunately, so I could still get on the wi-fi and work, but obviously, that wasn’t exactly the best possible thing to happen when flying. At the end of the flight, I go to explain the situation to the attendants, freaking out a little, when someone walks up to the attendants and hands them my card. Which just made the whole situation extra odd.
That whole ordeal was annoying, but when I look at this, I think: At least my US Airways plane didn’t skid off the runway, allowing me to take a selfie of the plane. It’s always good to have some perspective. (Nobody was injured, fortunately.)

American Airlines and US Airways merge, and the loser is competition

  • 86% of all domestic air travel in the United States will be controlled by a total of four companies, after American Airlines and US Airways merge. The merger is the latest in a consolidation-heavy decade for airlines in the country. What this means for you: The cost of a plane ticket is about to go upsource

Oh yeah, it’s worth noting that American Airlines has had a really tough past couple of years.
