Default Trip to Dallas II

Not a big deal; IFR to DAL, VFR back to BFM, no sweat, but I want to
give another plug to Regal Aviation at Love Field.

Once again, they treated me like I had driven up in a Gulfstream instead
of a somewhat scroungy looking Cutlass RG. Rent car delivered right to
the airplane, free bottled water fetched by a cute girl for the thirsty
pilot, and an all around impression that they were glad I was there.
Great operation.

This is the second time I've had unmatched service from these folks. It
took (most of) the pain out of paying $5.10/gal. for 100LL, since I know
I would have paid about as much at most any big airport FBO and not been
treated nearly as well.

For $5.10 per gallon, that gas should've been pumped by the Swedish
Bikini Team, and included a 1 hour, full-body massage.

You were hosed, Dan. Nicely hosed -- but hosed nonetheless.

Then it's a conspiracy.

I paid about mid-range for fuel at any of the FBOs at DAL or ADS, the
two airports convenient to my meeting.

Signature at DAL is charging $6.19/gal. for avgas.

That's getting into credit card lap dance territory.

The "name" FBO's at big airports are targeting the bizjets these days.
Already a decent segment of the market and growing very fast. That's where
the profit is for an FBO (selling a few hundred gallons to a Citation,
instead of 20 to me). Those of us who fly small recips are getting priced
(and corporate hangared) out of airports in metro areas...

at $8.00 / gallon in the UK that's really steep.

Prices nearing $1.99(?) for auto gas in MN - I filled up at $2.12.
