The storm will be well south of ICN on Friday (but north of Taiwan, which is my concern), and probably dissipated by Tuesday.

Good to know - I have the Reserve and (wrongly) assumed this was a feature of the Platinum as well. Thanks for correcting.

Gifting intro MQMs from Amex Platinum?

Hi,

I've been brainstorming on how to reach DM this year (due to some career anomalies, I'm about 10K MQMs short with current travel plans). Today, my wife received an offer for her own Platinum...

Lima as a tourist destination?

I know, strange headline. Let me try to explain.

I attempted to do something similar and failed back in January; I had an early-morning SEA-ATL-MIA that I wanted to move to a redeye (landing the same day but leaving the night before). Delta refused...

My IAD-DTW leg last week would have had an empty F seat if I hadn't noticed on the app that it was open - I was first on the priority list, and at gate there were no F seats showing, but after I...

Twice now I've seen the page with the liquor menu torn out. I wonder if the plane had just come from SLC?

When is a same-day not a same-day change?

Delta/AeroMexico Seat Selection

I'm PM (and as such, also Skyteam Elite+) and booked through Delta on a GDL->LAX flight on AM metal. Is it normal that even as PM, AeroMexico will not allow me to select a seat (and as such,...

I'm presuming you were on a Delta flight. The Reserve doesn't give you SC access if you don't have a Delta boarding pass in hand.

That's a very good point - I did make more than $80K in charges in 2015, which puts me $30K over the $50K threshold for the two boosts I got on the Plat card I had last year. That could explain this,...
