I can't say how the train trip would be handled. But I signed up for the "survey points club" to get Amtrak points to keep my wife's Amtrak account from expiring, and was pleasantly surprised to see...

It seems like just buying points would make more sense: it's about the same price, and a lot less hassle. Am I missing something?

Edit: it looks like the rules used to require you to actually earn...

Last activity in my wife's account was 25 months ago. As of this morning, her points are still there. Looks like AGR is handling this the way they should (i.e., not instantly expiring those...

Does anyone have any experience with (or even guesses about) how picky the APEC card application process in the US is likely to be about the "verified business person" requirement?

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm still not seeing that option there.

It turns out that it doesn't matter, though: my upgrade just cleared (into the last available seat in first).

How do I redo checkin? I just bumped up a notch in premier status, I have a flight in about 3 hours, I'm already checked in, and the status difference might well be the deciding factor for whether I...

I didn't know about the executive dining option (or perhaps I knew at one point, but then forgot), so thanks for pointing it out, kirkwoodj and Kryssa.

But I love dessert, so Darlox is right that...

Does transferring points between my SPG account and my linked Marriott account count as activity to keep SPG points from expiring? I'm guessing yes (given that other points transfers count), but I'd...

I don't want to turn this into a PMCO vs. PMUA discussion, but I don't think the problem is PMCO IT. I never encountered any IT problems on either PMCO or PMUA, but since the merger I've encountered...

I hadn't thought about that. The flight was operated by Air Wisconsin, so I suppose it could be their rule. If so, that's yet another reason to dislike partner-operated flights.

That's what I was guessing, but it's good to know I didn't miss something somewhere.

Just a quick follow-up report: I called and had no trouble booking the flight (and because I was unable to book it online, BA waived the phone booking fee).

Thanks again for suggesting that I call.

DCA to BDL on 6/6. I'm seeing availability on two nonstops (US3766 and US4555) on AA's site, but neither one shows up on BA's site. If you can double-check, that'd be great.
