No. Regardless of what they are called, their sole purpose is to trick and deceive.

There are multiple targets for this deception (the airlines' frequent fliers being merely one), but the charges...

I think United should spin off a low fare carrier-within-a-carrier. They could make it all cute and stuff...talk to the passengers like we're 8-year-olds.

It'll be a huge hit, guaranteed. @:-)

Perhaps the test would be to go back and look at category creep in years when the EUR appreciated against the USD. If hotels jumped categories more or less across the board (e.g., no major shift in...

Don't most websites with an international audience use U.K.? I'd find it strange if some far-flung airline cared whether your mailing address was in England, Wales, or Scotland.

Get an ATM card...can't believe anyone in 2015 doesn't possess one, even though cash is clearly used very little in some countries. I can't imagine traveling and having *no* access to cash. The...

WN increasing capacity would be good for (U.S.) fliers. I'd be happy with that. They are the primary carrier that has the size and scale to actually compete with the legacies, if they so choose. ...

We're going for two weeks this summer. Didn't even think about the exchange rate when we booked the trip, and I still find myself doing math in my head with a simple 1.4 number. So it'll be a...

Correct...as long as I've been flying UX, it's been a collection of regional airlines operating under the brand. Not owned by UAL at all.

And you probably shouldn't go straight from the airport to that kind of meeting regardless of what cabin you fly. Plan to get there a day early, maybe two if it's Asia.
