I wonder how they will deal with a situation where the wrong passenger gets marked as non-compliant. I'm sure there are steps to confirm they are marking the correct passenger, but if it takes human...

Why do you feel the federal government should regulate how a business compensates its employees? There are many things that only the government can do, but I'm curious why you think this should be...

I was wondering this myself. For example, there's no FAA regulation that requires a passenger to use supplemental oxygen at any cabin altitude. There are specific altitudes where the flight crew...

If this was me, and my travel in 2020 was the same as 2019, I'd do it. $399 for access to E+ at booking would be worth it to me, and it's not as much as buying an E+ subscription.

I miss the old days, where a 15+ minute delay triggered an automatic 25% increase in miles. I never had to call and ask for it, the bonus miles would just show up in my account after a few days.

1,235,108 - I flew less in 2019 than I have in 15 years, but it was still way more than I wanted!

Go somewhere for New Years Eve, then you'll one segment in 2019 and one in 2020, in case you're in the same situation next year.

Have you considered buying an E+ subscription next year? If E+ seating is your primary concern, a subscription will allow you to book E+ when you buy your ticket vs T-24 hrs for Silver. Buying the...

I used to just ask to be seated near the front, and most often that ended up being upgraded to first class. Be polite, very polite, and just ask. Politeness is expected in Japanese culture.

The ANA lounge used to be the highlight of my trip when I flew TRANSPAC often. They have showers there, so bring clean clothes. They'll supply everything else you need.

Good point -- I forgot that SDC incurs a fee below Gold. If you plan for 4 and aren't able to add legs you'll still be happy with the results.

You could go BUF - IAD - EWR for $137 one way and about 4 hrs of time. You might be able to add extra segments by...
