I'm on a Delta flight with a dog crawling around and be passed among a family on different sides of the aisle. I happen to be allergic and one of the seats this dog is...

Be cautious how much you spend on the status match because you may not get it. After confirming my dates by email and by the phone, Delta shut off my match a month early and stuck me with six flights...

Available Seats

Is there a way to see available seats on a Qantas flight? I'm trying to see if there's availability in premium or business on my flight tonight.

Thanks,

It may sound silly to some, but not offering food is a definite negative to me as I consider a second elite program. I'm often running between planes (or to the airport) and having at least snacks...

I was only responding to one person about being patronizing-- I'm sorry if that wasn't clear. I think everyone else was helpful and reasonable.

Priceline admitted the hotel was "just a tiny bit...

I'm surprised. Snack packs seem to sell on the other airlines. I'd much rather pay $4-5 for some cheese, crackers, dried fruit and nuts than juggle a messy sandwich onto the plane!

Lol. Yes, I'm an idiot who spends 100 nights traveling around the world writing about travel, but gets "confused" when looking at maps!

Every once in a while I get reminded why I don't go on...

Thanks. Sounds good except for the food. I'm always juggling carryons and enjoy having a meal (or at least snacks) served to me. I guess I'll just use them for mostly short flights.

This was far from my first Priceline experience. The other ones were OK -- hotels not up to rating, but not to bad. I also found the prices to be equal to what I could have gotten on other sites....

Elite Upgrades, Food & Baggage

I'm currently elite with American and Delta. It makes sense for me to have the lower status on two programs instead of higher with one since I travel to a huge variety of places.

I have had it...

Beware of Priceline

It seems like the days of Priceline being a good deal and reliable have come and gone.

The last time I used them I found out most people at the hotel had paid less, this time they put me 30...

Yes, it's a great tool in theory, but I have NEVER found a single airfare that it says is there. Very frustrating as I'm desperately looking for 4K Delta miles and I'll go just about anywhere if...

Any extra MQMs out there?

I had a business travel freeze mid year and I'm going to be about 2,000 MQMs short for my Delta status. I'm already booked on as much airline as I can physically do until the end of the year, but I...

Has anyone been on Open Skies recently?

I'm flying Open Skies this week to Paris. I can't find any posts about it that aren't going back to last year. Has anyone flown them recently? Any tips?
