I see that many of you have had the same situation by reading this thread. United, for example, doesn't charge for a companion upgrade. As American charges, why can't the process get fixed? I...

I have seen this type of scene too many times. People who don't travel that much react and now we can see what happens. I have had to tell people to calm down or the boys in blue would be called on...

Only 2-3 hours late. That sounded great! This flight was 5:hours and 40 minutes late today. It is yet another 767 that had a problem. That type seems to be having many issues this summer.

In the new system effective August 1, 2016, you would need to have spent roughly $6,000.00 to $13,000.00 to have enough miles for the "award". Get rid of the penny a mile thought process. Think of...

For years I earned miles by flying, and that worked out nicely. I honestly think this is the beginning of the end. Yes, I have held the airline related credit cards, but recently began paying...

It isn't so nerdy of you at all. The flying public will have to spend $5,000.00 before taxes and some fees in order to earn that "free coach ticket." The total amount is probably closer to...

They will drive many of us to search for what is best for us, not what is best for them and their newly graduated MBAs. This signifies the end of the loyalty game. This craziness took my breath...

I flew IAH - ORD on a 737-900 in F today and the meals served lacked bread/rolls and cookies. Is this part of the new flexibility United is trying to adopt? This is a new one for me.

The BIG 3 US airlines don't care about those in the back, no matter who they are. They do care about those in the front and want to make certain they paid for it. The loyalty of yesterday is gone. ...

This award-winning change actually encourages you to pay for first or business class and not wait to use a 500 mile upgrade. Those don't count toward your revenue/earning goals. UA and DL don't...

Is AA going to mAAtch UA and DL with complimentary upgrades for all elite members? If not, then this is worse than UA or DL. UA and DL upgrade all elites based on status and fare paid.

I had to call in the order to reservations. Nobody seemed to know when or if the functionality would be back. My whole take on this is that they are using usairways.com vs. aa.com functionality.

Wasn't that Frank Lorenzo's plan, too? History does repeat itself.

Also, didn't UA retire the 767-200 which was used for ps service and didn't CO retire theirs, too?

Better luck next time you...
