End the underlying BS regulation at issue here

I am no fan of Ms. Huffington's politics (at least her politics of conversion in the last 5 years or so :rolleyes:) but the regulation restricting electronic device use during low altitude flying has...

Do Plats get free breakfast?

Apparently there is no executive lounge, but do Platinums get vouchers for free breakfast buffet?

If not, is it worth it?

Going here in a few weeks and the reviews all sound terrific!

Tough in Texas

Upgrades as a 1K are very spotty from DFW or IAH to SFO/LAX. Combination of:

Agree with Angkor's placement on the list

She was there last week

She gave my 22" Tumi a close look last week, but I didn't make eye contact or acknowledge her. I find this the height of obnoxiousness - a teetering enterprise hiring an employee whose sole job is to...
