OK, I've got an answer for my own question. If you set up an account on trainline.eu, top right, under your name, the drop-down box will allow you to buy a railcard. You'll be emailed your card# and...

I'm trying to renew or buy a new Senior Advantage card (used to be Senior+ I think) through SNCF but their website kicks back at me, telling me they cannot deliver in time to my address. No matter...

Following up on that, do pilots see a distinction between the -8 and the longer -9? United is apparently making a point in the media that they're the only domestic carrier not flying the -8, the -8...

Yes, that's what I figured out for one of the 3 attempts to fly us out. Plane from CLE took too long to get out of CLE I think. Crew would have timed out getting us back to ORD. But there's also the...

Update: We're the people that UA forgot?

UA 4409 ORD-FSD has been a bit of a disaster for UA tonight; mechanicals kept inbound from coming in, then something else, and a short while ago they decided to ferry an empty plain from CLE. #3178...

You're right; wrong description for ET. At JRO, they had managed to lose my electronic ticket entirely and had to reissue a new one. That was the return flight. My wife's ticketing was intact. It...

Excellent catch. Might add that anyone really concerned about weather delays flying into or out of the SF Bay Area should use SJC (San Jose), which is rarely impacted. When UA issues a waiver, I'd...

US-based pilots are well aware of the issues that lead to the crash of the earlier 737 Max, and have been trained appropriately. It's not just our lives at stake; it's their own too. I regularly...

The definitive word on wheelchairs & carts (subject to change post-flight)

Based on the advice given here, I gave in and called United to request assistance with my flight Sunday, since I'll be getting around on crutches.

- The only assistance you can request is...

We're on the same page; I just got sloppy with how I was saying things. I am UA Gold. Used to be Plat, and for one year, 1K. And for several years prior, a lowly 2P.

Yes, I was saying *P=Platinum. Getting a bit ahead of the game here since there is no formal *P as yet, but something *A says they're working on. I'm *G on UA by the way.

So you're saying watch it...

So, just to be clear, the B fare upgrade advantage (when not cleared at purchase) isn't relevant to anyone *P or below, until the waitlist order gets past all elites of higher status?

I'm seeing direct TATL PE flights (SFO-CDG) in the summer for $2300 r/t, but curiously, a bunch of UA + another *G carrier flights for $1500-$1600. For example, Mixed cabin, where the short hop...

Watts are so yesterday. What's your VAM? Mine's been heading steadily downhill, and the time off the bike isn't kind to my weight. Awesome that you can work the magic on the hotel bikes. I...

The obvious question is, how can you fly enough to be GS and do OLH in 16 minutes? I haven't been capable of that since 1978?

I was thinking it likely I'll end up flying into C or D and out of F...

Thanks for your personal observations. I hope I'll be able to get around without a wheelchair. Sitting isn't much of an issue; sleeping, on the other hand, has become hugely difficult. But think...

Flying UA with crutches

I'm new to this game; have never flown injured before. Had a nasty spill on black ice on my bicycle; two small cracks in my pelvis. This happened after I booked my SFO-FSD (via ORD) trip, which I...

Update on Flexiroam in Morocco

Looks like no need to worry about the "beta" 3G status of Flexiroam in Morocco. It has seamlessly switched to the stronger network in our travels so far, and more often than not is 4G, not 3G. After...
