Are you on paid business class tickets for your trips or economy? That makes a huge difference in determining a program. LH is actually not that hard to earn *G (Senator) if you're on paid J fares,...

Though it would require using UA up to ORD (or EWR), I would also consider SK, they seem to be getting good reviews on the new biz seats. They have a direct ARN route from both ORD and EWR. As far as...

I didn't think CA was one of the airlines that could do int-int transit at PVG T2, is that fairly recent?

OP, for most airlines at PVG T2 you do have to enter China and re-check in. But there is...

That's certainly one of the more ridiculous mod requests I'm sure they get. Mine was a very valid point. The JV fares are not necessarily the cheapest all the time, the fact that they file together...

I think I get your intended point, but are you saying that if LO, SK, or SQ posted a more competitive fare you'd dismiss it because it's not part of the JV bundled fare filing? (assuming you mean...

I particularly dislike UA because the cabin does not have it's own lav. You still have to go back to normal economy for the toilet and on some planes that can be quite far. (763 has to be the most...

Usually you can do online check in without much issue. I don't know though if the lounge they are using in ORD requires an invite or not, so you might want to stop by anyway. There isn't an airside...

I've been to their F lounge when on an OZ F award. It was one of the most underwhelming lounges I've found in the *A system aside from United. 30k won isn't a lot, but frankly don't think it's worth...

I've done 1 to 1.5 hour connections in PEK loads of times. It's not something I'd recommend if there is only one flight per day to your destination though as you do run a fair risk of missing it if...

On a US passport, it's a non-issue. I've done it several times both int-int and int-dom and had zero issues. Personally I prefer it on the inbound vs arriving at a US airport. US Preclearance in...

That was precisely my reaction reading this as well. $1400 is way too much for that route. Look at flights within 3 months to get a better gague on what you should be paying, flights way out in the...

If you do stay at the other random place you booked, just be super careful about how you get there. A shuttle operated by the hotel would be best. Local taxis are best avoided, but there is a web...

Been about 3 years but I don't remember any *A lounges in SEA except UA. I wouldn't anticipate other *A airlines opening another one, there's not that much *A traffic there.
