Done both. Both are better than Atlanta.

That said, I would rather go through Atlanta than Philly.

Last summer, I got stuck in Atlanta for about eight hours, after being stuck in Mobile for five (my flight to Atlanta was canceled, then my flight to Norfolk was canceled). This was after Delta having overbooked one of my outbound flights on the trip down.

Luckily, I got home that night. Probably around 100 people on standby didn't.

But I missed a business trip because of it (quick sunday turnaround...was supposed to get home, change out luggage, then drive to DC).

I refuse to fly on public transportation. Nothing but losers and criminals. Thank goodness me and my family have access to a corporate jet.

I've been through Charlotte a couple of times. Rather uneventful, though I did find a full barfbag between the seat and the cabin wall when boarding there one time.

I travel 4-5 times a year by "air" and if I can't get first class, oh well, I use Marquis Jet....
That way barfbags are eliminated, the air quality is better and one is not scrunched up to someone falling asleep on your shoulder, an unknown someone.

I have my ways and that is fine with me.:D

Once again we're all impressed by your means. Let's see, no one but you can afford New Kent/Lanexa, affordable housing is for the rabble, you only fly first class or private aviation, and when a pedestrian is killed by a car, you car more about the damage to the Bentley than the loss of life.

You are they are snobbish, arrogant, pompous, two-faced, emotionally retarded and ignorant. But what a pretty, pretty world you live in, huh?

You may apply for a Jet Card.....try it.
Grow up. OH here is some fun for you:

I like room service, first class surroundings,
Bentley's, no I do not own one. And that was a personal note to someone not you, about the car.
