I have an upcoming Saturday night stay. I will be on a road trip, so just passing through and have no interest in the Cosmo or the Strip, in general. There doesn't seem much to chose between the...

Reminds me of a time last year when I tried to use a RUC on day of travel. Each of the four times I called - and this was the DM line - my position on the upgrade list or my assigned coach seat...

I agree with you about not taking up an entire bin but checking a guitar in a hardcase is an excellent way to justify purchasing a new guitar. Even a real flightcase is risky. In my experience, DL...

It is also worth mentioning that if you will be in downtown San Francisco, you are just as close to OAK as SFO. That has a few additional flights to SLC and LAX each day which might be useful if you...
