It looks like some really exciting food choices are on the way over the next year or so in DTW. I was sad to see Chili’s go recently but it looks like it will be back in the OLD NWA club in the smaller concourse.
A brand new PF Chang’s will go in near A36. I have not yet been to the one they built in ATL but I am planning on a visit soon.
A Longhorn steak for a meal before a nonfood Delta flight? Yes please!
As you can see there is a bunch on the way. You can download THIS PDF to see all that is in the works. – René
PS- Don’t forget I am giving away a GOLD BAR this week!
On my last trip through Detroit I had some extra time and wanted to try out a new dinner spot. There really are a bunch of choices at DTW to grab a bite. I was in a Mexican mood and there are a few choices for that now as well. One of them is Jose Cuervo Tequileria conveniently located at one end of the A gates where the train stops. And I mean who … Continue reading
As I was driving up to get my grapes the other day into Southwest Michigan, I had NPR’s Morning Edition on and they had this story that a new world wide survey is out and the top US airport, competing against others across the planet, was CVG. You can surf over and listen to the story on the NPR site and see what you think. It was also interesting to see Amsterdam #3 on the … Continue reading

I have a bit of a long trip report on the way tomorrow from my ski trip to Denver on Delta using my AMEX free companion cert but first a bit that makes all the “hoops” Delta is going to make us jump through in 2014 still worthwhile. Traffic in Denver is crazy. I was hoping it would not be as bad on a Saturday morning for our return flight home and it was much … Continue reading
For those of us who connect via Detroit to other parts of the world, having an old NWA fleet of A330’s has been both a blessing and a curse. The blessing was that the ex-NWA seats were much better than the old 767-300ER business class seats but nothing like the new full flat seats. Since “we” had some of the newest “old” seats the fleet of 330’s have and are to be the last ones … Continue reading
LGA airport from The Flying Pinto Hurricane Sandy update October 30, 2012: 4:00 p.m. Delta continues to monitor the situation at New York City-area airports, including working closely with the Port Authority and other stakeholders to resume operations as soon as safely possible.

Have you ever had a delay induced long term stay in an airport? My wife once got to enjoy the day as an airport guest as a result of her flight being canceled after they damaged the aircraft fuselage by running into the terminal building structure. Ooppppssssieeeee! So why am I on this track today, you may ask? Did you ever see that movie The Terminal? It was 24 years ago today that the actual … Continue reading
This is new on the KLM website. I don’t fly much (ok ever) to the Philippines so this may be old news to those who do but just so you know: “Please be informed that, with immediate effect, visitors traveling to The Philippines must hold a printed copy of the return/onward E-ticket. The Department of Justice, Bureau of Immigration, and Republic of The Philippines has strictly reinforced the requirement for those visitors/tourists to hold a … Continue reading
Thanks to the mighty schedule change rule I had some time on my way back from Sweden last trip to go check out the new International Terminal F in Atlanta (ATL). First off, anyone can get to F as long as you are cleared through security. The “plane train” takes you around some fun curves and you get a peak at the underside of the baggage area on the way. You will go up two … Continue reading
Delta began it’s history in the air as a commercial crop dusting operation way back in 1924. It was the first of it’s kind, and was based originally out of Macon, Georgia and later moved to Monroe, Louisiana. This Mississippi Delta region is the namesake for our airline and the triangle shape of this early logo has carried forward in the Delta logo we know today. In just 5 years they had their first passenger … Continue reading
I have said how much I love living where I do. The middle is just nice. I have EZ access to the “Windy City” for Stay-cations whenever a point breaks room is found. I can fly out of SBN, AZO, FWA, GRR, IND, MDW, ORD & DTW all within a 3 hr drive. I could go on and on, but you can not all move here to the great Midwest! But if you live in … Continue reading
I was not able to fly down to participate in the fun of the dry run today leading up to the grand opening on Wednesday the 16th of this month! There is the official video that has been around for a while that gives you the clean overview. I did, however, have a very kind Flyer Talker (michaelkade) offer to guest blog for me and provide a bunch of photos for us all to enjoy. … Continue reading
