Ha. Clearly. Not sure why this one didn't appeal to me. Oh well.

I must be getting old or less fun, or something. This was quite clearly a fabulous deal, and no doubt a mistake. I saw it in plenty of time, went through the process of getting it all lined up and...

I am no UA troll. I think I have flown them once in the last 3 years. I don't think they're "Winning" a PR war. Because I'm not sure there is a PR war. And, if there is, they aren't losing it...

I disagree with the PR mess. I don't think anyone outside of this community thinks that United is in the wrong.

Do you know how long it takes to change regulations? It can be a very arduous process taking a few years.

I sadly missed the excitement of the entire day as United caught the mistake about halfway through my booking process. I think it was shortly after that I began to believe that this wasn't a typical...

I am OK with whatever provides me with options. In most flights, I would be perfectly comfortable with the idea that has been tossed around with seats that leave you standing. I think I'd actually...

Interesting. I have only visited a few times, so I don't really have widespread experience with SYD, but I never felt that the airport wasn't capable of handling the traffic it has. At least not in...

133,000 (Maybe more). But, I'd have burned those with or without the devaluation. Or, most of them anyway. Got a week's worth of bookings at Park Hyatts in Sydney and Melbourne.

I am not sure I've been on a CRJ-200. Been on a 700, 900 and 1000. And, while not the best in the world, they get the job done. Are the CRJ-200s so bad because they don't have any 1st class seats?...

All of these attempts to compare airlines are somewhat futile. Let me state the obvious: Everyone is different and judges quality in different ways. A Diamond Medallion may love the DL flight...

It has become one of the biggest annoyances I have when flying, and that's mostly my own fault for letting it bug me as much as I do. If there are going to be limits and restrictions on how much...

Don't you mean Scarlett Johannsen instead of Sandra Bullock? Or, did his dating resume just improve?

Within 12 months? Within this calendar year? I have a stay at the program I hope to match from from December '12, but haven't stayed in one since. Even though timing isn't ideal for it, I am...

In every new country I travel to I try to find something that I can hang on my Christmas Tree every winter.

I stopped with my DL loyalty this year, though I should still retain my silver status through next year. I will lose it with MQD and am happy to switch allegiance.

You would think that if they didn't earn miles the statement by United would have explicitly said so. Though, does that give UA too much credit?

A little surprised by the decision. I didn't expect outright honoring complete with EQM/RDM accrual. They seemed to have an easy out on that front, though PR-wise it might not have been worth it. ...

That would definitely be a way of an airline abusing it, sure. But there's a difference between buying a properly loaded fare and a $0 one. I have booked flights only to realize I'd gagged the date...

Not entirely relevant to this discussion, but something I've always wondered relating to mistake fares.

Why do we get 24 hours to cancel booked flights without penalty and the airline cannot if...

Perhaps. I think they'd be able to project the no-shows pretty well though. Especially if a large number of them were 0 or 1 night stays and true MRs.

UA could just let it go and chalk it up to a mistake. I still don't think any other option being discussed is likely to result in these being honored. I would be shocked if DOT did anything to...
