You mean yesterday, today was tomorrow, correct? Or was it the day after tomorrow?

yeah, I know that (sometimes) they have the next day's edition onboard.
However, this was about the way this guy demanded the next day's edition when the FA came round with the magazine and newspaper trolley.

Well I think they FAX it from the ground to the airplane- but only if you are a US Dividend Miles General Member- nothing for HON's- that may be why the guy was upset?

No. I mean tomorrow, today is yesterday, tomorrow is today, and the day after tomorrow is tomorrow.

Reminds me the old math proof that 1=0 and I didn't find the gap in the long sequence of formulas. :o

Want to try the LA C seat? ;)

If you end up in the real thing it is a great C product. I managed twice to plant myself into one. But then, I also managed to experience a last femtosecond equipment change and a surrogate stool which rivals an LH coach product :( .

In which parallel universe? I am not particularly fond of SQ and Chagis Khan airport but they have by far the best premium award inventory of all *A carriers. Whenever I book a C award to the US, more than half of all segments are always on SQ. And I am not picky.

Ever since you guys reanimated the "indecent service in Y on TG" thread, I am haunted by the suspicion that "F service" doesn't stand for First anymore :eek: . In this thread at least it stands for freeloader.

Then travel back home across the atlantic in LH Y, in a middle seat in the back that does not recline in a old 747-400. When you close your eyes LH F will be a dream ;-). (You may wear your F Tshirt while travelling).

Guard the restroom, blockade it with FA assistance using beverage carts, and the post on how to solve the problem of "F restroom poachers":

Just downloaded the PDF version of the Condé Nast Traveler article featuring Star MegaDo 1 and found the following which I think should be added to this thread:


Quack! Why is the Lufthansa rubber ducky the golden fleece for frequent fliers?

I left Marty making preparations to take a bath in the lounge's full-size bathtub. It turned out that Rolando Veloso, the Argentinian air warrior with 800,000 Continental miles, had designs on the tub as well. There was a trophy to be claimed for coming here, and only one flier would have it: a rubber ducky, across the front of which read clearly: LUFTHANSA FIRST-CLASS TERMINAL. In Airworld, the Lufthansa rubber ducky is the golden fleece
.
Oh dear! This article might increase potential maximisers. :rolleyes:

My guess is that, all the joking about maximisers aside, it won't be long until LH blocks F redepemption to only their own members (a.k.a. the usual experience with SQ)

I bet some person using the FCT will make sure to fill up their suitcase with as many of these as possible, since it sais FIRST CLASS TERMINAL.

As was strongly hinted during the Star MegaDo.

Yes- and this will be a shame as the rest of STAR will probably follow shortly there-after. I can understand LH getting a bit annoyed- even though I really liked the article in Conde Nast, the tactic about buying a fully refundable F ticket, using the FCT, and then refunding the ticket- although the article put LH in a great light, this type of behaviour really should not be encouraged- stirkes me as someone inviting me to their home or business, treating me very well, and then on my way out I help myself to something of theirs...or did I miss something?

UA and US can keep their F.
