That's just it - I'm aware that both are listed in the same column. The problem is that the return leg selections are actually identified as "Saver Award", but are quoted at full standard "price". ...

Website quotes double saver award miles for return leg

I'm trying to book a N.American (YYZ-BOS) award trip. The website correctly shows me available saver outbound legs at 12.5k miles. However, when selecting the return flight - every option that is...

Got the same e-mail the other day as well, at about 20-22k miles out. Now down to 17,263 to go, with another 4,720 booked through the end of this year. Will have to get my last 12.5k in 2014. So...

Still working on the 1MM, currently at 969,165. Took a new job a little over 2yrs ago, so my flying has slowed down a bit. Went from a perennial 1k to only barely being able to make Plat on an...

It was a typo. 5 x PMUA 757-200s are being retired. There are no 732s or 733s left in either carrier's fleet.

Great flight! CO's 752s have true AVOD and 120v AC power nose to tail, including every seat in Y. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a 752 going trans-Atlantic. Same number of engines as most...

Lockers in HNL RCC?

Anyone happen to know if the HNL RCC has lockers available? Will have ~5-6hrs to kill on a connection, would like to to stow the carry-ons and get dinner downtown.

Morning, Box! Another lovely winter day in Buenos Aires. Got stuck here yesterday instead of going to Sao Paulo (in a good way, though, as I much prefer it here) due to EZE getting shut down by...

Very nice! I'm in the process of burning through two of mine on the way down to EZE/GRU. Cleared on IAH-EZE, though still hoping for the GRU-IAH to clear on the return. True, it's only a 762 with...

To me that just proves that the PMUA 1Ks that were making the noise have more ego than sense. Instead of fighting for a true worthwhile benefit (like SWUs not restricted by fare class), they instead...

There really isn't a need for a VLA in UA's route structure. With several large hubs as spread out as they are - there isn't enough demand (while maintaining reasonable yields) on any one...

LH just ordered their very first few 777Fs within the last month or so. You couldn't have seen them, as they are not even built yet ;)

BOS-SFO is being operated by the 738. If VX can operate it using an A320 year-round, a 738 is going to be more than capable with its longer range.



You are absolutely right. Terminology...

While 739ER is certainly limited by range & payload vs. 757, it unequivocally has a MUCH lower CASM with identical passenger capacity. Keep in mind that a big part of 757's higher payload is to...

There are several different versions of each, with different capacities. In general, CO's 737s have a higher ratio of F to Y. Whether this will remain going forward (once installations of E+ begin...

You are comparing apples and oranges. 320 in UA config has 138 to 144 seats. CO's 739s have 173. When E+ is introduced, that will likely drop to somewhere between 161-167. In either case, 739 is...

That's entirely possible. Airbus may have allowed them to convert the 42 outstanding A32x deposits into 25 x A350 ones. This would result in no orders or options on A32x at all, further justifying...

EZE really is such an amazing city. Always a great time! Now is not a great time to go, as it's on the cool side, but I'll never say no to EZE. Just too bad it's only for a couple of days :(

PMCO had about 100 outstanding purchase options on 737 with Boeing. To my knowledge, PMUA had very few, if any, outstanding A319/320 options with Airbus. Makes sense to go with whatever is already...

Yup. Always ended up on one of their 340s (with the exception of a CJ700 for an intra-Europe flight once). The 343s are starting to get a little old in the tooth, but the 346s are great.
