I'll take one

Someone generously gave me two a few weeks ago, and both worked.
I'm flying on Saturday, and I'd be happy to see if they actually check the expiration date.

FO, plat card, T fare.
Currently 29/29on an A220 with zero seats open, so, barring several simultaneous disasters, not expecting anything.
Surprised that I'm dead last though.

any idea what the actual connection times are? Do they close boarding earlier? I'd imagine that busing to a hardstand CR2 isn't actually that much slower as there are very few people on them.

Statement closed on the 2nd, and all of the spend was in 2019. Seems to be some issue posting from Amex->Delta; might be that they are waiting for me to pay off the balance?

I got the miles for spend and delta 2x bonus miles, but not the bonus MQMs/RDMs credited. Amex has the on my statement, but they haven't hit Delta yet.
Any idea when they'll hit?

JFK-SJC I was 46/49 as a FO with a card. 2 open F seats. Needless to say I did not get it. Plane only had 150 people on it, so I guess it was at least 1/3rd elite. Does not bode well for future...

I earned it the hard way on the 737-800s on JFK-SJC or worse, mostly in basic economy (plus Amex), and I've got a 17" macbook. It just doesn't fit.

Abandon hope of using a laptop of decent size in regular economy on Delta. I doubt it is much more than 30", but it may be less at chest height.


I have a larger macbook. It is perfectly sized...

Destination change

I had a SJC-DTW-LGA ticket to DCA but really wanted to go to LGA due to my plans changing (a baby failed to appear on time), but they wanted $400+ to issue the ticket. I offered to trade the SJC-DTW...

While Saga points are redeemable for in-flight beer (wish other airlines would try this!), I'm not sure I want to fly to Iceland anytime soon!

Icelandair: How long to wait before filing a claim for lost baggage?

On 7/31, I flew FI from Orly to JFK.
On arrival, the agent informed me that my 3 bags were not on the flight.

So began the saga of trying to get them back.

On 8/1, they told me that all 3 bags...

I'm thinking about purchasing a domestic upgrade (EWR->SFO).

I'll bite on this:

This policy is upsetting because it is not very customer friendly and the airline is monopolistically using its power to extract money out of non-elites.

Here's how:

Missing segment and missing DEQM

Made 2P on a NZ flight about a month ago.
