I believe that the Delta/Air France counters are one in the same (as part of the JV, AF/KLM covers local ops in CDG/AMS and Delta covers them in the US) so it doesn't really matter here.

But for...

​​​Yes. This is my point. I was responding to another poster who tried to imply LAX-ICN-SFO was not cabotage. LAX-ICN-LAX is bookable because a round-trip is fine, LAX-ICN-SFO is not bookable because...

A Reserve card is the third tie-breaker behind status and fare class - so it's a pretty potent upgrade aid. I'm not sure why you wouldn't think it would not be useful to help get an upgrade?

You must certainly do, unless you have the luxury of booking far in advance. C+ is sold out on most of the routes I fly weeks in advance, so no upgrades at time of booking. Have to pray for the gate...

The only airline you have any chance of sticking to out of Atlanta that isn't Delta is WN. They have far and away the most secondary locations.

That said, you really can survive living in ATL...

AC gets away with it because the US government turns the other eye to our neighbors to the North so long as they don't do it blatantly. This is the problem with arbitrary laws like cabotage. There is...

I doubt Norwegian will enter - at least not with their current widebody fleet. RDU is just too small. Even if you look at its CSA, you're only talking about 2 million people.

On most of my routes, RUCs are definitely of limited use unless there are IRROPS that free up seats (which, mind you, does happen with some regularity). There are usually 4-5 RUCs applied ahead of me...

Of course a 5 night stay wouldn't. But what about my scenario? I fly LAX-ICN, land at 4 AM, attend my meeting late morning, and then head back to ICN in order to catch the 4 PM SFO flight to be there...

All of those would be cabotage if there are no US carriers on those legs and the stay is short enough that it is a defacto connection or could be perceived as such.

Unfortunately these stupid...

This is great! Will definitely be visiting it regularly.

Agree on United's flight delay detail. They're fantastic.

Heeter says that Delta considers a celebrity dog to be one that is "recognizable without a person attached." So what dogs have qualified? Another Minnesotan, for starters. Bullseye, the Target mascot...

I guess, although still subject to change. It doesn't do much for me as I usually fly out in the AM so I set my alarm at night and have to assume a 10-12 minute buffer for transit to the gate (above...

I think the entire program is a waste of taxpayer money, but in fairness, if your full time job was to fly around, it's pretty terrible to make them sit in coach 24/7 given the torture devices most...

Of course they're not going seasonal on those core markets. The goal would be not to go seasonal period, but they will go seasonal on markets that can't even fill a narrowbody in the winter.

North, South, Main, and International. Anyone can go through any of them, but there are technically different "purposes" I guess.

International is international.
