Did this with an 8-hour layover last week. They didn’t hesitate when I asked them to short check. If they do, just say you’re taking some things for a friend/relative in HK and want to give them...

Thank you for your reply, but I'm asking if anyone has actual experience in SGN, not what the "official line" is. There are several reports up-thread of people doing this same-plane turnaround...

I can’t seem to find any data on this point: can you get a card if you’re over 5/24 and you agree to waive (not receive) the bonus? My dilemma: I’m swapping to UA, and I’d like to get the MQD waiver...

1) Deceptive advertising - their "super sale" fares don't include taxes and surcharges of up to $1,000. FT regularly has better deals than these bozos.

AF is great if you get the new product (77W) - flat bed, easy to sleep, all aisle access. Worlds better than any CW product. I also greatly prefer KL biz to CW.

AUS/DFW/PHX/SAN/MIA-LHR $1600-1800 SkyTeam & VS thru EOS!

This isn't the cheapest deal out there, but I figured I'd post since it's good through the end of schedule.

TAM and LAN both have famously bad IT, and pretty terrible customer service. They seem to have taken the worst of both in the merger... Don't hold your breath.

I also submitted a claim on July 5, and there's been no response to date. I just re-submitted via the AA.com customer service link and asked what's taking so long.
