My decision-making process on whether or not to swap my seat has 95% to do with how polite and unassuming the person doing the asking is. If you're rude, entitled, demanding or any combination of the...

I think this has more to do with YVR being such an outstanding airport than anything else. I couldn't imagine getting much work done at DFW or ORD, for example. But YVR? Piece of cake.

I had a 6+ hour wait between flights while in YYZ, so I asked the Maple Leaf Lounge attendant if it was a problem if I stayed that long. She just shrugged. I managed to get in a 3 hour nap.

I agree with GUWonder. If it's not okay to slap an adult across the face then neither is it okay to slap a baby across the face. I'm not even talking about legalities.

Any flight over "big water" (the Atlantic or Pacific) warrants an upgrade to J, even for junior staff.

Our Veeps fly in J or F, always.

Oh dear! Sorry to hear it. Ever tried nibbling on dry, unsalted, plain crackers? That often works for people, and so does eating tiny bits of raw ginger.
