The short answer is not until November.

The fine print indicates the renewal fee must have already posted to your Chase account, and the choices tool only allows selection of the current and...

I think I actually said legs, and really it's about mission fit. I know 7810s have flown SFO-PEK on occasion, but I didn't know about SFO-AKL, which is really impressive.

While I'm sure they have...

They were great 15 years ago, but way behind the times now. At least I don't think they were ever refreshed :)

Maybe it was tongue in cheek, but I don't think the 764 was kept on this route to...

+1

This includes overnight hotel layovers for connecting flight (I've had to do that twice since the order took effect).

This is absolutely correct. Gate agents are happy to fill every last seat upfront with upgrades, while PP has remained sparse in the few flights have flown over the last two months.

less than half a mile. The walkway is also covered almost the whole way.

And yes, there is a united desk after clearing customs to re-check your luggage.

I typically walked landside between the terminals before Covid — avoiding the shuttle bus seems even more beneficial now.

That's oddly comforting :)

I've been disappointed to see United still being very stingy with transcon plus point upgrade availability. But if there are still elites out chasing those seats, I'll...

This seems like a pretty empty gesture - wouldn't SEA-LHR already be covered by the AA-BA joint venture?

I missed the permanent announcement, but can't say I am surprised. I won't miss the 3:35am pacific time departure, but I was on the final flight yesterday (RDU→SFO).

The six month reductions/cancellations probably show how effective the promo has been from an overall business standpoint. It seemed pretty desperate at the time, and the cancellations, even if some...

GS was already based entirely (as far as we know) on United spend. With 1k qualification now (almost completely) on the same scale, I wouldn't think GS would inherently need to change. $50k+ is still...

And just saw the bigger thread... sorry for the duplicate post. Glad to see FT search working as well as ever :(

I would appreciate it if someone could merge this into the main thread. Thanks!

RDU-SFO dropped Nov 5 - April 21

I received a flurry of reschedule emails this morning, rebooking me to RDU-SEA-SFO, and sure enough RDU-SFO has been removed from the schedule for nearly six months, starting in November.

Outside...

That is a reasonable strategy - and while the check-in offer presumably feeds into revenue management algos, I don't think the gate agents use them in any way. In my example, I was the only bump, so...

yup, works for me now, too. Maybe the five weeks of “maintenance” are now finished.

I don't think I've ever seen the SFO polaris lounge with fewer than 50 (midday with all the departures between noon and 2pm). To be sure, not overcrowded, but far from empty.

This is always the rub -- even where human agents are willing, can AS's famed IT systems bend to their (or anyone else's) will?

After several recent long-ish Seattle connections, I'm afraid it...

Fully functional leg rests on those VX seats are becoming harder and harder to find. I'm sure this is a function of reduced maintenance, but most of the time I'm funding they either won't deploy at...

You would have to figure it's a batch process that runs at least by day/hour, if not by flight. But then, with Alaska IT, I suppose anything is possible.

With all the unpredictability, I've only...

FWIW, there are a ton of Apple people on the CX flights out of SFO - and some of them even credit to AS. UA does much better on the PEK and PVG routes where the nonstop competition is CA and HU.
