I think that was why I was so surprised - both Delta and American have done this for me several times. Only occasionally have had status with American, and never with Delta. I was (am?) just...

So, if we had taken their advice and switched to Tampa, and arrived after they closed the door for that flight, we should be OK with having no priority to get back onto our original flight? I'm not...

CS fall during Irrops - all is well that ends well, I guess

So we were coming home from San Francisco (actually OAK) this weekend, connecting in Denver. Weather was a little dicey in Denver, delaying our initial flight to the point where we'd miss our...

In actual irrops, they seem able to do absolutely anything you ask. Willing could be another story, but I cannot imagine them not being willing to accommodate the situation you describe. I don't...

My other half just had this happen - upgraded to A1 at the gate, met another fellow with A1 in line. Both were definitely for the correct segment. He didn't ask the guy if he'd booked BS or just...

Can confirm that a flight booked to EWR offers up LGA and ISP as a free change. Same for FLL and PBI, and OAK/SFO/SJC.

But they usually charge the fare difference. This is the third(?) time this year where they have allowed people to book one flight and then change their flight, route, date, even coterminal, and not...

Can't imagine taking a $200 credit instead of almost $1000 in points, but to each their own. Perhaps you've already gotten the other bonus and aren't worried about 5/24.

Otherwise, not bad. We...

I think he means that if he knew he could arrange for a compatible seatmate for the year, it might be worth taking the time to get it set up. Having to do it flight by flight like some sort of odd...

Same day standby is all I miss. I had an excellent success rate, booking cheap late night flights and leaving whenever we actually want to.

To be fair, WN doesn't even try to operate lounges. I think all of the legacies are going this direction - I gave up paid sky club membership because of the change. WN has never had any lounges to...

​​​​​​​For those of us who didn't do this before the vendor change, I just want to make sure - WGA cancelations after 24 hours are 'refunded' only as travel funds?

We've settled into a good pattern with WN. We book a trip speculatively on WN, at whatever price they're asking, using points and the CP. We also usually book a cancellable hotel room and rental...

It's not terrible, but I think I'd rather just use the points directly from the new accounts for free. Plenty of flights available for fewer than 5k points. I wouldn't pay much to have the points...

Mine covered the $14 they were initially charging for Hawaii point fees, and didn't retract any credit when WN credited all but $5.60 back. Don't know if we'll bother with the card next year, I...

Yeah, that's still my use case for Wyndham - 15k properties that are >~$200 for my dates. The selection of those is much smaller now, of course, but they're still out there.

With this change, I've...

I do this regularly at MCO - saved $76 for a round trip to Denver from FLL to DEN this weekend, less than $120 for the pair of us. If you'd told me a few years ago that I'd be interested in Frontier...

Hardly any FLL-LGA, either ;-)

In all seriousness, I'm finding that I don't expect to use our companion pass as much as we did when we lived near Orlando. Part of that is just a general increase...

airlines are getting tougher on 'impossible' flights. Even WN, who seemingly used to be unable to notice them, has started cancelling overlapping flights. I can't speak for AA specifically. I'd...
