Why? That’s what the NTSB called it and what my friend was told during the flight. Your flight path graphics don’t show either way whether it was a contained or uncontained failure. Also, passengers...

Delta uncontained engine failure

One of my friends was on an ATL-MCO flight last where the engine had an uncontained failure and caught fire. Everyone’s lucky the parts didn’t fly into the fuselage like what happened with the SWA...

I'm in the C concourse using what appears to now be an unbranded SkyClub wifi connection. Has anyone else had problems with the new content filter being super strict? I'm trying to browse Reddit and...

But checking guns and ammo is completely legal in the US. There's no reason he would have needed to hide it. TSA has an easy procedure for it. I know people who fly with firearms for the sole reason...

It doesn't say no more Y to J upgrades. Based on what you quoted, my take is that they'll allow you to use a global upgrade to W if J doesn't have any more upgrade inventory.

Embraer makes the best small planes. I'd happily fly one of those 1-2 seating ERJs over any CRJ, and the E-jets are some of my favorites that Delta flies.

This is the first year I've chosen regional upgrades as my platinum benefit (well, I chose them late 2015). I still have all 4 and decided to use one yesterday. It was one of those flints where I was...

A Global Entry card is sufficient for returning to the US from Mexico or Canada at land borders. It works at sea borders for things like cruises also. I've never had to show anything but my GE card...

So they likely both have dirt on each other that they don't want made public. Mutually assured destruction.

Yes, you generally clear US Customs in Canada before your flight so it can land as a domestic flight. I don't know about London, Ont though.

Quoting myself... I just remembered that my wife and I also got free checked bags when I showed my PM card for all 3 of our domestic flights, even though we bought saver fares from VA.

Clearly you weren't around back in the T-Mobile days... I'm not convinced the WAN ports on the wifi routers were plugged into anything back then.

Yep, I have the paper tickets in-hand. Since I had to book my open-jaw award ticket as two one-ways, the stupid baby tickets cost me way too much to lose them!

I'm glad they went away. I only...

If the FAs are telling passengers about it, or even know about it, it isn't a classified directive. I seriously doubt that DL or any other airline is getting anything classified from the TSA. At most...

That depends entirely on who he purchased the ticket from. If he's flying the ATL-LON flight as a DL-coded flight operated by VS, he would have access exactly as if he were flying Delta.

Domestic Aus - it's been a few years, but priority checkin, priority boarding, and lounge access. That's about it. Don't expect any upgrades.

International - no clue. We used miles for J.

A real gentleman would put on proper white-tie evening dress for an event as special as a D1 flight. We're not savages.
