You'll probably get yours soon. But, why does it even matter? We can't use our passports right now.

My wife had a Flying Blue award for travel in about 2 weeks (IAD to CDG in J). Last night the flights were cancelled. In the e-mail she got the same "voucher" option:

I had a trip booked this week on 2 separate PNRs that I thought would be impossible to rebook. Two F tickets using a companion certificate that expires in June 2020. A third ticket (separate PNR)...

I booked a round-trip award recently because it was cheaper than 2 one-ways. I ended up canceling the return flight online after I'd flown the outbound leg. Oddly the system refunded me all the...

Just to provide an update that may be useful to others, the check-in agents at both IAD and ZRH each noticed the separate ticket as soon as I handed each of them my passport. They immediately said...

Yeah, I was at the same SkyClub 2 weeks ago and I'm almost positive the hot dog guy didn't have a tip jar. But that was a missed opportunity. Based on my observations over about 20 minutes, I'd...

Here's a dumb question. If celebrities can't board with normal people and are running late to the gate, why don't they board last (rather than delay boarding for everyone)?

Tipping

I was at the LGA SkyClub in D last night and the Nathan's hot dog cart was out again. I was surprised to see one of the large glass containers (the same one that they use for cookies and snacks but...

I think mayhem is right. On a $500 ticket (prices being equal between DL and KL/AF), you'll obviously do better on the KL/AF marketed flight. But if the same ticket were $7k, then you'd probably do...

Manchester is the closest airport. But I'd fly into Boston if you can get a non-stop flight there. The price to Boston might also be significantly cheaper.

Just rebook the flights as opposed to cancelling them. Then the certs will carry over to the new flights. Assuming the certificates won't expire before the new flights, they'll either clear...

If they won't through-check the bag, then obviously I will have to claim it in AMS and re-check it.

Was hoping for some real-world experience here.

I booked separate tickets from IAD to ZRH on KLM. It was $1600 to buy the trip on one ticket, but only $650 to buy IAD-AMS-IAD. I then purchased AMS-ZRH-AMS for about 110. Will KLM be able to...
