Booking an award ticket can be a slight pain, but I haven’t read anything saying OZ awards are very limited. Based on what OZ releases to *A I have to imagine it’s actually really generous. And the...

I thought I remember reading this, but now I can’t find it in the wiki. If I purchase a PY flight now for after Dec 4, and the upgrade clears at booking, will I get 10 points back on Dec 4?

Flew the NY plane on Tuesday SFO-EWR. Doesn’t look half bad in person, but it is pretty busy.

Not to mention, my fellow (relatively, I'd hardly call spending a few thousands of dollars "low") low spend high mileage fliers are often ones who will stick through UA during economic downturns....

The general consensus seems to be that changing after check-in can work, right?

I suppose though other than E+ on UA, basically all other benefits on *A airlines can be had just by showing your...

Not always, yes some fedoras are crushable (honestly the term should be foldable), but many are not and that doesn't mean they are poorly made. And even if a hat is crushable, it is never a good idea...

CRJ 550s are going to be the best RJ in the sky! If you meant CRJ200s I agree though, hate the Devil’s Chariot.




The evening flight is a CR7, that’s big for me :) YUL has far too many E145s...

I travel with hats regularly. If you have pre-check you can wear it through the metal detector. Honestly though, it’ll be fine just placing it on the bin.

For the purposes of the poll—I’m leaning towards OZ or potentially A3, with the idea that I’d cut paid travel quite a lot (much of it was just to keep status), and do more reward travel after easily...

Looking to jump ship to OZ from UA. I know the credit card spend counts for status, does it also count for lifetime? Even if I’m not chasing 1K I’ll still probably fly ~40-50k a year, so would get...

That is an utterly asinine remark, UA is making it much harder for decades long loyal fliers like myself to get status, and you’re telling us to have a coffee?

I’m looking at A3 and OZ, perhaps AC and SQ. AC offers the most elite benefits, but still has the PQD nonsense. A3 and OZ have very easy *G earning, and OZ has great mileage redemption. If anyone has...

What loopholes? You’re stuck spending thousands of dollars AND a bunch of segments, or spending even more money. This change, and the way they’ve presented it, makes Smisek’s “changes you will like”...

In theory you can, by changing the number after booking and always carrying your card around. I will requalify for 1K this year, but I’m already planning which airline I’ll jump to. At this point...

The YYZ transborder is always crowded when I go! The YUL transborder is even worse, IMO. The food is not that great, the lounge is the size of a postage stamp, and the white wine is barely drinkable...
