No. Living in Philly means a lot of flights on US Airways. US Airways is hands down the worst. US Airways is like the kira of airlines.
A holiday moment from the streets of Philadelphia Homeless panhandler (who may or may not have any legs--I couldn't quite tell): "Hey, chinaman, can you help me out?" Me [tone of exaggerated incredulity]: "You just called me a chinaman!" Both of us laugh heartily as I walk away.
Well, we had extra bottles and I ended up with one (seemed wrong to refuse it outright). I'll let you know if I actually drink it. I'm probably just going to make sangria with it, though.

y'all got any more of that french butter?
Do you also share your hotel rooms with a roommate?
