  1. That's strange. I've recently been on a few AA Charlotte to Denver flights (either A319 or A321, don't recall). On two of those flights, we had what looked to be brand new monitors in each of the seats complete with pretty much any movie or TV show you wanted.
  2. For all the warranted criticism the exterior of the Avid Exchange HQ building gets, the interior actually looks pretty cool... Looks like your typical start up IT firm: http://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2017/05/05/avidxchange-new-headquarters-hq-music-factory.html
  3. Maybe it will require a PSL
  4. Just now catching up on all this chatter. Man. A 30-ish story residential building right behind BofA stadium is going to have some priceless views on game day.
  5. Well damn. Good to see all those routes are adding frequencies. I flew out last night and the Sacramento gate was next to mine. It was full. Agree that it would be nice to see San Jose become year round. Makes too much sense. I would also like to add Colorado Springs to that list as well.
  6. Charlotte will host an NFL draft before it hosts a Super Bowl.
  7. Lets be honest, this building while not everyone's favorite, is way better now than what we first saw when renderings were released 4+ years ago. Plenty of people, myself included, grew to like it more as renderings were updated and construction progressed.
  8. Having a 3rd daily flight from Charlotte to London-Heathrow would be huge for the airport. Especially when it comes to attracting European and/or UK based companies. BA would be nice, but wouldn't bank on it.
  9. Absolutely love the McCaffery pick. He'll add so much versatility to the Panthers offense. He can run between the tackles, play the slot and return punts. Gives a guy that Cam can dump the ball out into the flat to as well.
  10. What's sad about the whole ESPN thing is that it's obvious they are focusing their cuts on the people that actually do quality reporting versus the ones that bring mindless talk show babbling. Blows my mind that they put a priority on shows like First Take versus someone like Ed Werder who does really good NFL reporting. No wonder they are hemorrhaging money. The SEC Network from what I saw will still remain based here as will (likely) the upcoming ACC Network.
  11. ^This has turned out better than I had hoped for (which wasn't much to begin with). The white definitely appears to be more more vibrant as mentioned above in a previous post from Seabrooke.
  12. My comment about the 21st century was about the look of the renovations. Not so much what enhancements were being made with respect to workspaces or high speed phone chargers. Even if they got to 2007, it's still the 21st century
  13. This is what's in scope: http://www.northcarolinabids.com/government-agencies/mecklenburg/charlotte-douglas-international-airport-clt-center-664206/7690252-clt-concourse-b-renovations.html New holdroom seating and electrical floor boxes are part of the requirements. I'm sure someone that is better versed in this sort of stuff can decipher what all of it means, but it at least sounds like more modernization of the areas around the gates.
  14. The Hornets are swapping locations for the Fan Shop and Box office at the arena. The new fan shop will have about 1,000 more sqft. Hopefully this unclogs the entrances some because that area around the box office can get overcrowded pretty easily when everyone is trying to get in at once. Also this will open up the fan shop. It tends to get slammed pretty hard before and after games. http://www.nba.com/hornets/press-releases/hornets-sports-entertainment-announces-plans-switch-locations-spectrum-center-box
  15. ^I've pretty much quit buying beers at games because I got tired of paying $10 for a $3-4 drink... I can probably count on one hand how many times I bought a beer at Hornets games this past season. And that's actually pretty telling considering how much they made you want to drink.
