Thanks, but Japanese airlines have F/As who are Japanese citizens who work to the U.S. (and of course non-U.S. airlines all have non-U.S.-citizen crewmembers working to the U.S.).

United has F/As...

Terrible idea. On a transcon red-eye, most people are fast asleep, or at least are trying to sleep, at the top of descent and when the seatbelt sign comes on for landing. (Remember these are...

I dunno about that.

I am Pre; my husband is not (and is way younger than 75). Yet whenever we travel on the same reservation, he ALWAYS gets Pre with me, on any airline.

It is centered more down in the Central Valley rather than in the Bay Area itself. Think Devin Nunes' district (in fact he is part of it).

I can't believe someone started a thread about no ice for a 90-min flight.

Even worse, I can't believe I am commenting on it.

No. I am not sure what you mean by "per their CoC" - are you relying on a specific section that you are saying requires them to do this (and if so can you post it), or are you just asking generally...

Also, if ATL-RDU is on DL, will DL even let you do this? I have seen threads with other airlines where the reservations system will not let you have two flights booked at the same time if it is...

Exactly. GAs don't have the time - or probably even the ability - to research every passenger's itinerary and judge whether they can make a connection. Something in the DL rez system flagged OP as...

There was lots of nasty weather around here yesterday evening (t-storms), particularly just north of TPA. ATC might have had some approach routes from the north closed off or severely restricted,...

How is it "screwing travelers over" to charge more for the convenience of nonstops and more frequency?

There is not one airline hub airport in the U.S. that doesn't also have other airlines...

What was the lie here? AA said the flight had a mechanical delay, and it turned out . . . the flight had a mechanical delay.

Yep, it is all about the definition of "focus."

I'll throw out another one. "Focus" (as is being used by DL) refers to marketing efforts, not to current operations.

No disrespect to the OP, but this story seems odd.

I am not sure how AA would do it, but when BA did flew it, Concorde was actually a different class of service (as in, above F). So if the Concorde didn't fly and its passengers had to be...

Taking the presence of non-revs out of the equation, it sounds like you are saying all premium seats should be filled up on every flight as a "reward" or "perk." If there are empties, give comp...

An airline never "needs" to fill premium seats for free, either with non-revs or through comp upgrades to revenue passengers (except arguably if Y is overbooked).

In any case, all revenue...
