0 for 2 today. First flight was ORF - ATL. We were running late, and it's a short MD88 flight, so I kind of get it.

Flight 2 is ATL - SJC on a 737, and was fully boarded 10min before scheduled...

They'll never do it, but I'd love to see SJC - IAD or DCA. It's bizarre to me that I can get to Tokyo and London from SJC, but not Washington DC. Maybe the business isn't there, or more likely,...

Yeah this actually raises the question as to what is preferable -- UA/DL style dynamic awards, or a straight valuation program like WN. I think one of the hidden advantages to the airline of the...

I think it's extremely short sighted even from a revenue perspective. Airlines make a HUGE amount of money selling Miles to the likes of Chase to dole out for rewards. Chase would love nothing more...

Yeah this is true. You could probably get away with it on the borderline "joint venture" flights (E.g., "operated by ANA") as part of an itinerary that includes UA metal, but that gets super hard to...

Incorrect -- buying in the UR mall does indeed grant PQDs. This is because Chase is buying a revenue ticket on your behalf -- you are just paying Chase UR points instead of dollars. But Chase is...

I'm not nearly the frequent flyer you are, but I'm taking the same approach. Transferable points are vastly more valuable than airline miles at this point, so most of my spend is now on Chase...

Hey all --

Apologies if this has already been asked. My GE expires on April 7; I was asleep at the wheel a bit and didn't file my renewal until late January. I'm still hopeful it'll come...

Thanks all for the input here! I've gone ahead and booked the Hyatt Regency TST for the 15K points per night. It seems like a great hotel in a great location for a first HK visit. Looking forward...

Probably not a lot though a view is still nice in mornings and evenings -- but you raise a good point. I guess my point is more that a major Renaissance positive seems to be "great view for the...

I think lead time plays in. On my recent work trip to Asia, I spent a week each in Tokyo and Singapore. I booked several months in advance, and was able to get SJC - TOK - SIN - SFO for $4200, in...

Hit Gold (50k) for the first time ever earlier this month. Mostly on the back of an Asia business trip I recently took -- SJC->TOK->SIN->SFO, all in J. That netted me 34K PQM by itself. 2 of the...

No I don't need the waiver. It could be helpful for Gold in some years, but I'll attain Silver easily without it. And in any case, I won't ever spend 25K on the card, so it doesn't really play in...

Any point to Explorer card with status

Hey all --

I'm just wondering, is there any point to keeping my Explorer card if I have status on UA? When I opened the card, I did not have status, but I have now attained Silver, and am likely...

Primarily I'll be there for work, but I'll have a 3 day weekend there as well. My office is "in the middle of nowhere" out near Alexandra Hospital and Hort Park, so with either hotel location I'll...

Westin Singapore vs Mandarin Oriental

Ah interesting, good to know. I could have sworn I was getting 3 with my credit card, but I've had Silver since August so I'm not sure. It looks like it's supposed to be 2. I'll have to make sure...

I don't know, it may depend on what routes we see these fares on. My thinking is they won't exist on most routes, only on routes with ULCC competition.

On those routes, UA is currently in a...

I status matched into Silver this past summer; I'll lose it on JAN 31, but may get it back later this year. Ultimately, I've found it a "nice to have" but not hugely consequential.

I guess I'm in the minority but I don't mind the plane that much. I fly it regularly between SFO and IAD. The E+ legroom is still decent, the lav situation is very good, and the wifi is faster than...
