I've been very harsh on Marriott here for two years. I think with good reason. But I must give them credit for extending my old-then-new TP cert to August. That one step as me willing to spend hotel...

Funnily enough, OZ hopping to ST would mean I'd get a lounge in my US homebase airport again (PHX). I'd also get the "bragging rights" of getting that OZ D+ pack right before OZ ceased to exist....

This has been my (admittedly hot) take from the beginning of OZ's woes. Why would the other chaebols allow all corporate air travel to be funneled to one of their competitors? That's enormous pricing...

My one caveat to this advice would be that you probably don't have to burn your miles immediately. This will take time to play out, and then time to implement, and then time to accomplish. KE buying...

As just OZ maybe not much. Pricing is similar, connections were similar. Service was very good on both in economy, in my experience.

But as *A it's so obviously better, IMHO. And they are going to...

I've argued that South Korea needs 2 majors, given ICN's prominence and the strong business climate here. It seems like Korean Air would be too massive without a major divestiture, which then feels ...

Marriott waited until ~95 days before these certs would expire before this extension. This isn't an accident: how many thousands of certs were used in the past few months, or are locked into cheaper...

Well, my curiosity got to me so I asked my wife. It's a checkered fleece of some sort; she thinks it may be the biz class blanket (I haven't flown J on OZ yet, so no idea). When she returns I'll post...

Yeah, I figured PHX would be a casualty due to COVID, and I am not really shocked at the idea that it's maybe even "dead dead". But definitely not happy if there's AAA lounges, a great DL lounge, an...

Any rumors or real hope these get extended past 1/31/21? We're still trying to plan a trip outside the US where we aren't quarantined for the whole time we'd be using the cert.

There seems to be a slight difference between the USA site and the Korea one. 2x, any flight date = Korea; 3x w/ blackout dates = USA.

Status miles, except in rare cases (e.g. UA Basic Economy which technically earns no award miles) match award/redeemable miles. Thus, you will earn 125% status miles as well.
