OK, I was able to assign any (free/non-blocked) seat I wanted on check-in. In a not-so-classy move, SAS also asked me to actively confirm that I did not want to pay for seat assignment for the return...

Except that the airline's own elites can still pick those seats free of charge, and since there aren't all that many good ones, you're at the back of that queue even if you check in really early.

If SAS don't even release exit seats for free at check-in, that would be really bad news (and would definitely cause me to prefer other airlines). I can report back on that on Sunday. With LX, my...

No longer free seat selection for (non SAS) *G

I know most of you on here will say "about time". For me, it was certainly nice while it lasted (which it did for many, many years). Not sure if it really isn't offered anymore for all non-SAS *G,...

Disaster: No Vla airside @AMS? Who can help?

When in the Netherlands, I normally indulge in Vla and Brokkelkaas (not simultaneously :o). On my last trip, I found some overpriced Old Amsterdam airside at AMS, but definitely no Vla. Can anyone...

Important thread, certainly alerted me to watch out on my upcoming trip to FRA. Having said that, the complaint-to-advice ratio in here seems to be slightly suboptimal.

Is FRA complex? Probably,...

Bad news

No cage by A18 - in fact, A18 is not even on ground level, so there must have been some confusion. There is a (closed, i.e. non operative) cage one level below by A1.

Best bet seems to be the...

Any "workarounds" to smoking in LHR T2 lounges?

Hello everybody,

I drink, and my girlfriend smokes. This should work out quite well for me during our upcoming layover (4 - 5 hours) at LHR T2 this week - for her, not so much. Having done some...

Now that SAS managed, unbelievably, to actually invest money to make the Gold lounge even worse, I'm looking for suggestions for alternatives.

To my first point:

SAS managed to replace the...
