Spend is fairly self-explanatory in terms of correlation to profitability of the customer (it's not a direct correlation (spend less a factor times BIS is more like it), but it's good enough.

If sitting alone is your thing, on a recent TQP run (signed up for AGR World card in March, so 4k TQP with no status from last year would do me no good), I had the F car to myself. The attendant...

I noticed on some exploratory bookings to the UK for early/mid December (via CDG/AMS) a few weeks ago that discounted J fares seemed generally unavailable.

I wonder if AFKL is thinking that, given...

I discovered Office Space before most (it was not, it must be remembered, a box office success): I remember LMAO on a FRA-BOS LH flight which was showing it in July '99.

I'm willing to bet that, excluding restructuring, DL shows better earnings than UA or AA.

The islands off the coast are pretty insular (even after the bridge, there's a lot of Deer Isle winter people who still don't really associate with mainlanders). There's still a lot of inbreeding...

Deer Isle (not Island, as my wife is quick to point) is beautiful, but very "Deliverance".

If you want quality lobster, that area is a good place: you've got a shot (depending on where in the...

I guess you could set it up as a second screen, though I doubt anybody would be doing anything that's really enhanced by dual screens.

I'd think it plausible if:

* the tariff doesn't apply if the a/c is owned by a non-US entity (e.g. a DL subsidiary in Other Country); presumably the US can't charge AF a tariff to bring a plane...

It's becoming a Doubletree, but is still accepting bookings in the future. I think it's the non-Millennium Hilton Times Square (on 42nd St) that's closing; the Millennium is on 44th.

There's a $70 back from $350 on Millennium Hotels & Resorts.

I wonder if that stacks with the Hilton offer for the Millennium Hilton Times Square?

One thing which is unclear to me from reading about this card is the 40 XP (on top of the automatic 20) for $15k spend. Is the sequence:

* get card + 60XP for opening
* spend $15k

It would be at least very close to the line of accounting fraud to consider miles bought by Amex (pretty clearly a liability) as revenue at the time of sale. The revenue gets earnt when the...
