So according to you a question is only legitimate if the poser has complete knowledge beforehand? Yeah, that sounds like the attitude that led to manned flight, NOT.

Oh, puhleeeeez. :rolleyes:

I assume from the OP that the pax was in a DL uniform. They probably were deadheading.

If flying on company business the pilot would get positive space in first. If flying on a regular paid...

Of the SkyTeam TATL hubs in the U.S., CVG is the best hands down. It's too bad so few European destinations are offered from there.

I sometimes refer to it as " 'Frisco " because not doing so has become a sacred cow.

Which is why for this purpose FO is no better than "Clampett" status in the eyes of DL.

If you have a good FA it's great, if you have one of the rare rotten apples it stinks. On one BE flight I had a dedicated FA who could only be distinguished from an NRSA retiree in that she didn't...

I assume the OP knows that SDC isn't possible on international tickets. For domestic award tickets a seat from any inventory in the cabin is OK.

The time limit was 2 hours the last time I checked. "Where you're supposed to be" can sometimes be extended to include co-terminals (although that may be up to the agent).

In my experience the agents at LAX are among the least helpful in the DL domestic network. In that situation (with BP in hand), I'd have just gone to the gate to sort it out there.

If true, that is a vast departure from the way DL has always operated.

My bet is that is just the new party line which was adopted to seem to satisfy data privacy requirements of the EU. All the...
