This Week's Question | Previous Week's Answers

Most of you answered yes, but with a few qualifications. 33% of those who responded said the flying part is good, but the rest sucks; 30% said they still love it, though it's more of a chore these days; and 26% had no reservations, saying all the negativity is just noise.
