747's and LA, oh my!

So Russ and I saw a 747-400 on the way to O'Hare yesterday... I FLEW THAT! It was by far the biggest plane I've ever been on -- AWESOME! United calls it their "flagship" aircraft... haha. I think that's quite retarded because they lose money every time they fly the aircraft. They're supposed to retire them because they're way to expensive to fuel. The sleeper "suites" in first class cost $38,000 each... they're so freaking cool! They have like 18 buttons on them and at the end you have to press reset and everything. The plane was going on to Australia after LA. It was fun fun fun!

This morning I'm getting lots of JetBlue work done and also working on my negotiations ethics paper. My team had a JetBlue meeting today and so I have lots more work to do, which is great because I love JetBlue. I hate negotiations though! I'm excited for Doug to get home from work, too. 2 - 5 more hours. He says just 1 but I know him too well to believe that. :) Anyway I should get back to work (yeah right) but I'll leave you with a fun IM conversation.

Amusing conversation between me and Patrick (and aren't they always?):

Kelly94942 (3:52:00 PM): United.
Kelly94942 (3:52:02 PM): Yeah it was sweet.
Kelly94942 (3:52:10 PM): The sleeper "suites" in first class cost $38,000 each.
p i d a t 42 0 (3:52:14 PM): theres a la salsa in terminal 7
p i d a t 42 0 (3:52:17 PM): really?
p i d a t 42 0 (3:52:30 PM): ive been in one coming back from london
p i d a t 42 0 (3:52:34 PM): it was nice
Kelly94942 (3:53:02 PM): YEAH I KNOW!! I saw the La Salsa yesterday.
Kelly94942 (3:53:07 PM): You were in a sleeper suite?
p i d a t 42 0 (3:53:11 PM): yeah
Kelly94942 (3:53:12 PM): That's so cool.
p i d a t 42 0 (3:53:23 PM): i feel way too gluttonous in one
p i d a t 42 0 (3:53:32 PM): or however you spell it
Kelly94942 (3:53:33 PM): I love how you just randomly know what food is in what terminal of what airports. :-)
p i d a t 42 0 (3:53:37 PM): haha
Kelly94942 (3:53:37 PM): Hahaha why?
p i d a t 42 0 (3:53:50 PM): too much real estate allotted to just me
Kelly94942 (3:54:07 PM): LOL
p i d a t 42 0 (3:54:12 PM): ive also been in one coming back from denver but it was only 2 hours so it was pointless
Kelly94942 (3:54:33 PM): Yeah.
Kelly94942 (3:54:36 PM): It'd be nice on a long flight though!
p i d a t 42 0 (3:54:41 PM): yeah
Kelly94942 (3:55:15 PM): I like how United calls the 747-400 their "flagship" aircraft... when I'm pretty sure they lose money every time they fly them.
p i d a t 42 0 (4:00:35 PM): yeah
p i d a t 42 0 (4:00:47 PM): theyre supposed to retire them
Kelly94942 (4:01:10 PM): They're so retraded sometimes.
Kelly94942 (4:01:11 PM): No offense.
p i d a t 42 0 (4:01:18 PM): yeah they are
p i d a t 42 0 (4:01:25 PM): why would it offend me
Kelly94942 (4:01:34 PM): I mean, most every airline's 747s are just sitting in the desert. It's retarded to fly them at all... they're too expensive to fuel.
Kelly94942 (4:01:36 PM): But whatever.
p i d a t 42 0 (4:01:46 PM): does it offend you when i say textbook companies rip off college students
p i d a t 42 0 (4:01:53 PM): yeah
p i d a t 42 0 (4:02:03 PM): and the new airbus is even huger
Kelly94942 (4:02:31 PM): LOL.
Kelly94942 (4:02:32 PM): No.
Kelly94942 (4:02:35 PM): It doesn't actually.
Kelly94942 (4:02:49 PM): Yeah well airbus is stupid because they lose money on every aircraft they sell.
p i d a t 42 0 (4:02:51 PM): my dad does the operations
Kelly94942 (4:02:59 PM): Good point. :-)
p i d a t 42 0 (4:03:00 PM): was your flight on time?
Kelly94942 (4:03:03 PM): NO.
Kelly94942 (4:03:06 PM): And hour late to leave.

Kelly94942 (4:03:11 PM): Got in like 45 minutes late.
