"Interesting" conversation. I'm late to the party as I've just finished up my last 10 day around the world trip of 2019, spending money on the airlines and hotel chains that I am loyal to. Since,...

Although this is an interesting conversation, with many good points on all sides, from my experience with UA/TG issues in the past, my view on it is that "what is right" is irrelevant and you've got...

Hi All-

I have the choice between the two for a NRT-BKK segment in an upcoming RTW trip and could use some advice. I've flown them both numerous times, but on TG only on their 747/777s and NH...

Thanks. How long is the walk?

There is also a pseudo transit hotel in T3 as well, but it gets pretty mixed reviews.

Hi All-

I need a sanity check on this as I've never been to Manila.

I'm going to be passing through, arriving on a late flight (~11pm) from NRT and then have a ~8am flight (both flights are...

Mine was changed from my previous one, who I never used, to a new one a couple of months ago. After a nice email intro exchange at the point of change, I haven't tried to use her until this week. ...

Thought I'd briefly refresh this thread as I just did a 1 night stay here last night. Pretty much every Hyatt in Denver was either sold out or the prices were sky high, so we ended up here for $209...

I was of the same mind until a few weeks ago. I got the screen during check-in on the app for a SLC-DEN-BOS routing offering $450/550/650 options. I picked $550 just out of curiosity and then...

I mainly agree here. First off, I didn't look at it as $750 a night. I looked at it as $1500 for 4 nights, ignoring the 30k/night points. Which I realize is a ridiculous way to look at it, but the...

Similar for me. I've stayed 4 times in the last 18 months and have never been in a standard room or used a TSU. The first 3 stays were single night stays, so I sort of wrote my luck off to that. ...

I tried it a few weeks ago on a NRT-EWR-BOS routing since I had a couple of hour long layover. It was 'just ok' in my opinion. A bit better selection than the normal EWR airport food, but not...

Hi. Just checking back in with an update. It cleared, but was a bit of an odd one. The seat map was showing only one available seat about 24 hrs out (I know that isn’t reliable, but not having EF...

A favor

I don't have an EF membership, so I'm hoping someone can take a look at the F availability for LH778 FRA-SIN on May 3? I've had a C->F GPU waitlisted for a couple of months and it hasn't cleared...

Good summary...A couple of points to add based on my flying both as well. This assumes that the UA choice is in new Polaris, not the old 2-4-2 seating.

My general preference is for UA, because:
