This is simply not true. Plenty of oneworld member airlines do not offer First Class - Finnair, Royal Jordanian, Iberia, S7, Air Berlin, etc - none of these offer First Class, only Business. Not all...

With respect, that is not your problem. That is clearly outside the oneworld lounge access rules. You should have asked for the SFO CX lounge manager's details and passed them onto oneworld in an...

LHR-SFO WT-CW 709. 8th Oct 2016. I had had a really rough week and was sleep deprived, so I took it.

Any update on the BA lounge situation at SFO? We're flying back to LHR on BA286 (luckily in First!) next week. The last time I was in the SFO lounge the earlier BA284 was delayed, making the lounge...

When you arrive at JFK, keep an eye out for AA staff wearing purple oneworld-emblazoned uniforms. They will be standing at the end of the jetway, and there will be a few of them, depending on how...

I am sure I did, but I do not think it was the $100/100 fee - the agent said I would not have to pay this if I was not changing flights. She processed the two fees separately, issuing me with...

AA does offer this. I did it three weeks ago going LHR > ORD. When I was checking in at the Premium check-in, I asked if there was an upgrade offer available. The agent said there was, but it was...

* oneworld not allowing cross-alliance upgrades, except for some very restricted exceptions. Annoys the HELL out of me when I have 750,000 BA miles and I am sitting in a CX flight with a half-empty...

As I said in an earlier post, when I phoned the EC, all they told me was to "keep checking". They did not indicate that any particular time...

No, the fare is definitely upgradeable - it's a T fare (WT+.)

For me?

Hotels not understanding that I am there to work, not play. Therefore:

I faced the same dilemma when I moved here to the UK 6 years ago. There are pros and cons of each.
