I guess I'm the target audience for this. I'm still using my old SE. I want a small phone, I want the home button. I would have switched to a different brand instead of paying for and getting used to...

Looks like my Black status has been extended until Feb 2021 (even though I didn't re-qualify in 2019). Experiences still have their original expiration dates (18 months from when they were earned, I...

The quarantine section (5) is about “coming from”. What’s all the mumble in (2) and (3) about “Visa exemption measures for the subject countries will be gradually suspended?” Does that refer to the...

Trying to make sense of this. Does this have any bearing on airside transit in HND by EU citizens who are not arriving from the EU? (e.g., Australia-HND-EU)

I wrote a long review (https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/31231062-post56.html) of HR Kuantan, including some info on the bus. I'd avoid the bus at all cost. Why not fly?

I'm at 40 nights YTD and will re-qualify by mid April. I realize that status extensions are an important issue for most FTers, but I wish Hyatt threw a bone to those of us who actually travel. It's a...

Obviously Marriott is better. Some hotels went down during the category change, some went up. The ones that went down are still down. And the ones that went up are back to normal. So some hotels are...

GHA status not expiring?

I didn't requalify for Black last year, but my account still shows me as Black. Membership card says status expires Feb 2020. Is this just a computer glitch, was I given an extension (I almost made...

I'm sorry? Is this missing some sort of irony emoji? Hyatt just cancelled its category change (except for a handful of hotels) and move to high/med/low seasons. IOW, Marriott is FAR more customer...

What mechanisms do you have in mind? It seems that introducing seasonality and setting 99% (or whatever is appropriate) of the global inventory to "Low" would be a good mechanism. Also, why shouldn't...

Marriott walks back Category increases in SE Asia, almost all hotels at "Low" season

It appears that Marriott has quietly walked back category increases in much of SE Asia. All hotels that had an increase (e.g., Marriott Hua Hin, JW Phu Quoc, CY Sha Tin) are back at their...
