Flight 151 in Chelsea?

Anyone know anything about this place on 8th Ave.? It's the airplane-themed one (windows that look like a hangar, etc.) between, I think, 15th and 16th. I'd never given it a second look, but I just saw some enthusiastic reviews on Citysearch -- almost *too* enthusiastic, as if they'd been placed there by the restaurant's owners. Is it any good?

    I was there a couple years ago. I was not impressed. It took forever to get my lunch order in the empty place. The place felt and looked filthy. My sandwich was a simple tuna melt served on what tasted like wonder bread. Definitely not worth it.

      I second that strongly. Stay away. Stay very away. My wife got sick after eating there. The place is so dirty, and not the kind of dirt that you can just wipe up. Gross. It took them over 45 min. just to get out two sandiches and the place was nearly empty! Overpriced and rude servers.
