    Cool An Age Old Question

    An age-old question, ‘WHY the Chicken Crossed the Road’ and one much debated in intellectual circles. Here then, for your enlightenment is the answer to this most intriguing conundrum as answered by airlines and a few people in the Forum *wink*

    Alaska Air-- The chicken crossed the road to catch an AS flight - that chicken knows to fly smart and land happy.

    AMT-- The chicken’s motivations aren’t my concern – all I know is I changed two wings, a beak and removed a bad egg and the silly thing still can’t fly.

    BKLinde—The chicken crossed the road amiably enough at about 4AM, I stayed up to help her to navigate things – no way I’m giving a crazy chicken my password.

    British Air-- Because she fell in love with a Beefeater.

    Delta-- The chicken not only crossed the road but “climbed” her way up to a 4 star on-time performance rating.

    ddagencylv (D2)—the chicken crossed the road to put a spotlight on roads, highways and to see how LAX’s $14 billion facilities upgrade are coming along.

    Gate agent-- Why does anyone cross a road? I mean why doesn’t anyone ever think to ask what the heck this chicken was doing wandering around when her flight was boarding?

    Hawaiian Air-- The chicken crossed the road alright and did it wearing slippas and eating shave ice.

    isppilot-- the chicken crossed the road in a “Rockettes’ Eye-High Kick line”, it was all very dramatic and a real show stopper.

    Lemlem—To see the big jets. That chicken really doesn’t like the CRJ550.

    MRSDS1DONNA-- the chicken not only crossed the road but did it while assisting a large flock of starlings with reservations, ticketing and adjustments to their itinerary.

    Marketing-- The frequent fryer miles

    Pilot—She was cleared to taxi.

    Qantas-- The chicken wasn't crossing the road, it was doing the recommended in-flight exercises - started with both feet on the ground and then lifted heels high.

    Ramper-- It was caught by a freak gust of wind.

    (Retiree/Non-Rev) In our day we didn’t ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road and that was good enough or us. A chicken was a chicken. It crossed the road because that worked to get her to the other side.

    Simul8r-- She was looking for options to/from MEM

    Southwest-- Because it had a 15-minute turnaround.

    United-- The chicken waltzed across the road to Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ finishing with spectacular ballroom bow- a classic!

    Wilbur and Orville Wright-- As to why, it's hard to say. Yet after we saw it couldn't fly, a thought occurred...If we could build a skid with a track going down the hill to the road, she just might make it across without touching the ground.

    And now you know why the chicken crossed the road.

    Migflanker - It was quicker than getting to the Lax Uber lot and waiting for a ride... in the rain.

    Default Frustration At LAX

    Talk about a mess - Nov 27 TV news video of the traffic at LAX (an hour and 10 minutes to go a block") - and that was before the rains came.
