Sorry for a perhaps nave question, but does this mean that the best you'll ever get with SNAs is the Marvellous Suite? Even if I book a higher cat room? I was intending the book the plunge pool...

Just got my email today, but it failed to mention the name of the new hotel. Kind of key information really.

Anybody know if Accor does status matches? If it's even a worthwhile programme to...

I got my Suite Rewards choice after about 48hrs from requesting them. However, I'm only able to use them for legacy Marriott properties. When I try to apply to a Starwood one, it takes me to the SPG...

Whenever I fly a longhaul with my husband, he likes to change into pyjamas before boarding, and it drives me nuts. So now I'll use a slightly modified version of this story to scare him into keeping...

Just to report my recent experience, with layovers just over 10 hours.

Access on Y tickets clarification

I'm a bit confused. I'm on a Y ticket with Star Alliance Gold. My layover is 9h15, so too short for the free hotel (10h+) but too long apparently for the sleeping room. That seems bonus. I'm guessing...

I don't really agree. Seoul is a huge place and no matter where you go, you'll spend a fair time on the train. One of my favourite places to hang out, the Hongjik University area, is not far from the...

Just saw this now... I'd recommend the gay-owned place called Casa Amora. I did a couple photoshoots there for Elska Magazine's Lisbon issue and the rooms and gardens are. Also, it's a nice (if...

I actually didn't know about this splitting (or forgot). A few days ago when my husband and I got to the airport to check our bags, the agent told us we were re-routed due to a delay, but we weren't...

Well it is an art publication, not a lifestyle magazine. It fits alongside Hello Mr, Meat Zine, Butt, Gayletter, etc which have similar price points. Its also for that same audience. It's not Gay...

The 6 weeks excuse is feeble. There is sufficient training given, including specifically about the Kir Royale, but the problem is that the bar is really low re: recruitment.

There's a lot of silly...

I emailed about it and got a call the next morning offering a comp for the restaurant that would pay for breakfast for one of my three nights here. Nice I suppose but next time I'll try another hotel.

So if UA is comping statuses all over the place, WHY? Have they lost too many elites when looking at 2014's member numbers?

Years ago, and I mean like ten years ago, UK 1Ps (and probably 1Ks too) were given free RCC access for a year. Kind of a throwaway for many since you get access anyway on an intl itinerary but for...
