I'm Done

Well, UA has lost another loyal customer. The 2009 UA MP policy changes plus the totally unacceptable Starnet filtering policy have done it for me. I'll now fly all my transpac on SQ and book all...

Filthy on Day 2

My first impression at the new airport ... it's filthy. They forgot to clean it before opening and I'm afraid it's just going to get worse. Except for its size, I wouldn't even think of comparing...

Inexperienced Pilot

Wow! - It was the co-pilot who handled the landing in strong crosswind conditions ... but he only has 43 hours on this type of aircraft and 3200 hours total. I am surprised such an inexperienced...

Metrocenter is not Central

Metrocenter is not central. You ought to stay near the airport or in Tempe. May I ask, what's your age, occupation and budget? To just randomly shop Phoenix for an apartment is not a good plan.

I agree that for the price, Air Asia is quite acceptable. I flew BDO-KUL last month and got nicked for excess baggage (but being Indonesia, I was able to negotiate the charge from ~$100 to about...

I'd go with OZ ... they have a lot going for them vis-a-vis other *A carriers on the route you are taking including:

You will save a lot of money by buying the ticket in Bangkok. Call the hotel you will stay at and ask them if they have an in house travel agent. You can ticket by giving your credit card and then...

Via a travel agent you should check Japan Asia Airways. I have found them to be cheapest from TPE-HKG.

Just last week I did it the other way.

BKK-HKG on TG with a 1.5 hour connection for HKG-PVG on MU

Well, for the 3 Trans-Pac sectors I've been on in 2005, orders were taken front to back. I noticed on all occasions I got what I wanted (including the elusive non-pre-ordered Bento). I think the...

Dude. Some thoughts.

1. Do not buy two tickets. Any tickets originating in Japan will cost you a fortune!

2. The best thing to do is book a flight from the USA to Shanghai with NRT as a...

I'd recommend you avoid the ICN-JFK OZ flight. The aircraft they use for that flight is worn and the IFE is poor. If you want to fly OZ, I recommend you get on their 777 to SFO and then catch a UA...

Simple. UA's fares are a function of supply, demand, competitor pricing, and buying power.
