Security is a breeze, and you park closer to the airport than you typically do at the ski resort.
    I'm curious why they are referred to as Death Trap Air? I've never ridden them before myself.

    Would rental prices correspond to flight prices or projected volume? I may be giving rental companies less credit, but if it gets too close to the deadline and the flight volume for that day is way down, they might lower prices to entice more people to rent?

    They're not really, it's just a joke in my family. They buy their planes as aging equipment from other carriers (United, Delta, American, etc..) fleet towards the end of its' life, or, at least when those major carriers no longer want them. You'll sometimes see little things like old style furniture you haven't seen in a while. Sometimes it's not noticeable, sometimes it's extremely noticeable. Like the flight I took to SFB where there was rear ceiling paneling literally held to the roof with duct tape.

    Ahh. I did not know that about them. A fitting joke name given some of those circumstances. I was not sure if they were more along the lines of Spirit. Glad to hear they are not!
