No, KE did issue it. I bought the ticket directly from KE's website. I just provided my AS number as the account to which I wanted the miles credited. Maybe that amounts to the same thing, but...

Thanks, figured. So, given that I have no Skypass miles, the only possibility would probably be transferring (120k) Bonvoy points to (40k) Skypass and using those to upgrade J-->F. Though I imagine...

I flew from SFO to ICN a week ago in KE J and will be returning to SFO in another week. Ticket was paid J RT, credited to my AS mileage account. KE website shows that there are open F seats on the...

Still waiting for an 8/13 - 8/17 stay to post. (Marriott Autograph Collection.) Waited two weeks and then submitted a missing stay report with a copy of my hotel bill. Got an email acknowledgement...

$399 is the price to upgrade from MC>F; MCS>F is $240.

I fly SFO>NY and SFO>DC fairly frequently and always buy MC, get auto-upgraded to MCS, pay to upgrade to F. I think availability on the DCA...

I flew SFO-EWR Sunday and all of those channels (and many others) were removed -- all that remained were things like the GoPro channel. I returned JFK-SFO yesterday on one of the new A321s and there...

In any event, it costs so few points for a Mosaic to upgrade to the EMS seats -- even for a transcon -- that it's almost free.

I just flew SFO-DCA-SFO over last weekend and can confirm the snacks in F were the ones from the back. That said, what snacks did people actually like from the D&D era? The *only* ones I ever went...

I've never had a problem getting the tags -- though I rarely check a bag. The problem is that half the time, the baggage handlers do not offload priority-tagged bags ahead of other bags.

They've stopped including the ear plugs, unfortunately. It's probably been six months since I've seen them. And the pen is now a very small, thin ballpoint. The eyeshades are also downgraded from...

1. Try again on the phone with VX (doubt AS will be able to do anything since it's not its reservation/boarding pass). I don't know why they would not be able...

If the child was a "toddler," then it couldn't have been a rear-facing seat which, IIRC, are really only used for the first ~6 months. (At the same time, I agree that the description of a "thunk"...

Not sure why B6 is your back-up and not the clear choice. I like D1 on the planes with 1-2-1 seating, but rows 2 and 4 in Mint are easily the best seats in domestic F.

One is a diner, the other is a burger place. I really don't see the comparison. It's like, which is better -- the sushi place in T2, or the Mexican place by Lori's.

Personally, if I'm in the...

I think the problem is that you've ordered something other than burger and fries there both times. In the original non-airport locations, it's not even possible to order breakfast. The burgers are no...

To each his/her own. I think it's an excellent burger (and thought the same when it had just the Lower Haight and Mission locations 15 years ago). I wouldn't characterize Burger Joint as a "diner"...

Because it will be a VX plane sold as a VX flight. They aren't merging anything meaningful to passengers until next year. Even if you book a VX flight on Alaska's website, it will state clearly that...

As a VX Gold, I have never failed to get the MCS auto-upgrade. (I also then pay for the upgrade to F probably 90% of the time -- basically anything other than an SFO-LAX short-hop.)

The seats suffer from lack of maintenance, but I think you're in the minority with this complaint. I find the seats significantly more comfortable than any other non-premium-transcon domestic F seat....

I actually think it is fairly unlikely that existing VX CC holders will just be converted to a BofA Alaska card. I hope not, since I want the signup bonus if I get the card.

Unfortunately, as...

I would have asked the owner to move his/her dog out of my space so that I could use all of my seat and space. I can't stand this "emotional support animal" fraud. Apparently a new "need" that human...

And, if it's like this year, if you get Gold and earn at least 75k elevate status points, you'll get MVP Gold 75k.
