    Ditto what a few other posters said about TSA approved locks. If items are taken out of your bags, it narrows down potential suspects tremendously.

    Thank you for letting me know about the locks. Didn't know that was an option. I'll look into getting some.

    Have used US Airways nonstop from Boston since 2007. But, will be using them for the last time after Thanksgiving with a stopover in Charlotte because we have miles to use and they are discontinuing their nonstop after mid-May. Will be switching over to Jet Blue from now on because of their nonstop flights. Didn't have any complaints about US Air for the times that we used them, partly because we use carry-on's; so we never had to wait for luggage. In Dec. we noticed that the plane was starting to show it's age (ie. stains on seats, tray tables out of alignment, some windows showing condensation between panes, etc.)

    Perhaps the best idea would be Valium instead of the ear plugs and blinders!
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    lots of planes are showing age and wear and tear. it is unnerving to say the least.
    dear husband had an malfunctioning seatbelt on our flight TO aruba. took the flight attendant quite a while to get him a seat with a working seatbelt. it are those things...condensation, stains, broken seatbelts that make one question the airlines' abilities to maintain the basic repairs and maintenance on planes

    Condensation between the inner cabin window and the outer window on the airframe is not a sign of a dangerous condition. It's simply the difference in temperature at altitude that causes it.
