Different strokes and all that, but arriving midnight onward in DC is effectively a red eye for me. By the time you get from C/D at IAD into your rental car and then drive 30-45 minutes to a beltway...

I just cleared SFO-BWI today on a MUA as a gold. The reverse flight has been similar recently. United made some schedule adjustments very recently, though, so on some days thereís only one flight,...

The waitlist length is exacerbated by UA offering $269 OW Yó>J buy-ups. I already did it frequently out of pocket on my employer-provided Y ticket given the lay flat seats. Now itís even more of a...

do you have a source for this? I know many in these communities who paid for precheck because it was not automatic. Maybe a CAC gets precheck, but there is no obvious documentation to prove one has a...

If it doesn't, qualifying for the credit is going to be difficult without seat upgrades or economy plus purchases. Each purchase must be $100+. Unless I buy everyone around me a beer, how can I get a...

OP, tell your friend to try to continue and see if UA will charge. I was on a UA IAD-FRA leg connecting to LH, and a similar offer popped up on the UA leg. Upon trying to purchase, the system just...

the typical FT experience is that the app is used prior to the gate (UA will make proactive phone calls), but ignored at the gate. So bidding on the app can still be useful.
