In isolation, sure. But I think the frustration here stems from the pattern that American consistently is laggard rather than a leader in the industry. In recent memory the only positive thing I can...

Part of me thinks that this alliance is a shot back at Delta over their encroachment in Seattle.

I wonder if this agreement would have any impact on DL/AA's interline agreement. I know it is...

I've received an operations upgrade on ATL-LHR as a PM before. Plus, I wouldn't expect a lot of DMs out of BOS as there would be in ATL.

The bigger issue is whether coach is oversold, which at Y9...

Lol, I love how the one person who is super precise about their MQD spend is the one person who didn't get 360. Pretty much tells the story... if you even so much as look at prices when you buy plane...

When 360 originated, the verbiage was different and the consensus seemed to be that 360 got the same upgrade priority as regular DMs. I agree that "you'll be at the top of the upgrade list" implies...

This is frequently misunderstood. Unlike Concierge Key, for example, Delta 360 members do not get any higher upgrade priority than a regular DM. That said, if you are a Delta 360 member, but not a DM...

It is rather out of date. S is now a Comfort+ fare (along with W). Delta no longer users P/A/G for first class since they switched to business class fare codes (J/C/D/I/Z) for all domestic first...

My advice is to not get worked up about it and move on. Euro business is just a regular coach seat at the front of the plane with the middle seat blocked out and a crappy meal. And it's a short...
