Looks like this generated a grand total of zero responses from last month, but tonight's the night, and my wife and I are looking forward to it. Anyone else going?

Thanks for the quick response. Will wait-list for the return, though not holding my breath (and upper deck on the 747 is not heinous...). How are you all seeing the fare buckets on LH? If it...

Hi, I've never tried a GPU on LH, but I have a round trip thru FRA in business and one lonely GPU expiring at the end of April, so why not? Here's the situation: 016 ticket stock,GS traveler, LH...

The best I ever saw was BOM-EWR when we flew due north passing within 100 miles of the pole. I woke up somewhere over the arctic and it was like the entire sky was filled with green and orange fire....

UA 2 SIN-SFO canceled 3/17 for maintenance. Seems UA 1 from 3/15 made it in OK. Anyone know what's up? Let's hope it doesn't turn into a 4-day maintenance saga like one did in SIN last year...
