Interesting.

So the mileage JFK-CDG is about 3,650 each way, or 7,300 round trip. Using this formula, the MQD would be 2,190. Am I understanding that correctly?

I just bought a ticket on AF...

AF?

So if I buy a W ticket directly with AF, would I still accrue 150% MQM but only 30% of MQD?

The much lower MQD could be an issue in terms of qualifying for the next Medallion level, depending on...

I saw one at SFO last week.

I don't check bags very often, so not sure how prevalent (or recent) this is.

JFK T4

JFK T4 is very rectilinear, since it's largely an add-on to an existing facility.

Your transcon will not be departing from there, but the last gate in the DL wing of T4 (B55, which is in the...

LIRR: Jamaica & Brooklyn

First, I stand corrected regarding Jamiaca ex- NY Penn Station.

The above posts are correct, so what I would do if I were an intrepid out-of-towner braving a few hours in Manhattan between...

Whether or not it's worth going to Manhattan is a matter of personal preference, of course.

As far as the length of the trip, the LIRR from Jamaica Station to NY Penn Station takes 20 to 23...

Good point. If you decide to go to the City, you should take the JFK AirTrain to Jamaica Station and then the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) to New York Penn Station.

On average, the trip takes...

Terminal 4 JFK for 6 Hours

The SkyClub adjacent to Gate 30 is very nice as SkyClubs go.

It is very big, has all the standard SkyClub amenities, as well as the "SkyDeck." an outdoor terrace which sounds cool but it's...

Every a/c manufacturer has had their share of blame in this matter.

One of the biggest problems with the DC-10 was the faulty cargo door which led to a number of depressurization incidents.

Agreed.

Earlier this year I flew JFK-PDX (non-stop) in FCM for $650 round trip.

Definitely a good value.

I have flown NYC-YQB (flight time 1:20) for $1,798 in an ERJ-145...

Yes, although in all fairness, true PE is found only on long haul routes (TATL or TransPac).

I love true PE, and fly it on AF as often as I can. I would love for DL to have a true PE cabin on its...

Why those C+ seats are full is impossible to know with full certainty, since we don't know how many elites are on these flights or how many pax (whether elite or not) purchased these seats.

That's obviously what DL wants.

But it represents a huge erosion of elite status.

Yes, but I think there is a big difference between (very rare) op-up's to D1 and putting C- pax into the C+ cabin.

If they truly are intending to turn into a "separate" cabin then this would seem to imply that DL wouldn't assign pax from C- in this cabin.

Clearly, most DL planes have a very limited inventory...

Indeed.

As ytou may recall, NW and CO had a type of joint venture at the time and I believe those A gates at T4 were shared among the two carriers.

Try B55, the last gate in the most recent epxpansion which replaced the RJ zoo at T2.
