Apple Wallet...

Yes, I have reached out to BA to ask about this - and have yet to receive a response. Seems strange that Iberia has that option but not BA.

[Back] In the Air

I have not flown internationally for more than 3 years due to unemployment and other matters too numerous to mention. I've lost all of my status [long-time UA Star Gold, etc] along with tens of...

Update from OP

I've checked out.
I earned 292,000 points and now have Diamond VIP status.
Any interesting redemption ideas? I did think a week at the Conrad in Tokyo would be a nice way to blow through some of...

198,000 Points

Well, I finally checked out and my balance is now 198,000 points - but status remains Blue. How long does it take for HH to recognize the number the stays/nights?

Update

I've stayed over 100 nights and will be here through the end of the month. It seems as though I should be Diamond at this point. This is not a negotiated rate; as far as I know. All I do know is I...

170,000 Points

I'll be very honest, I'm a little confused with the Hilton Honors program. I'm currently living in a Hilton and just checked my statement: I'm Blue level and have about 170,000 points credited to my...

City Hotels

Stayed at the Guoman Tower once - and frankly, it's one of those hotels that takes the 'fun' out of a trip. Sure, beats sleeping on the street but it's tired inside and out. The positive: some rooms...

Train and Bus

The Bus from the train station is really the only option unless you want to rent a car. Here's the question: Why bother? Some banks, tourist-dependent shopping, pretty much what you'd expect to find....

Problems

The visa isn't your problem; it's the check-in staff at NW. If they call the document desk and ask if you need a visa - and get a 'yes' response; and you don't have it; you're not going. NW will not...

PIT Club

First, you're not missing much. This is one US Airways Club that could stand a refurbishment. Second, if you walk in, smile, ask nicely - they might just say 'ok.'

Pope 1

Shouldn't a German-born Pope fly a German airline? I'm sure Lufthansa would love to fly the Pope.

Alitalia RIP

It appears the final days of a once-great airline are upon us. The Italian carrier's nine unions have essentially insured the shutdown/liquidation of the carrier and unemployment for their rank and...

The cost to BA for the T5 debacle is $45 million and climbing fast. If that's not detrimental to WW's future; what is?
