The photos of the Scottish Highlands were stunning. Having spent a great deal of time up there (and having taken the same Caledonian Sleeper), I can attest how rare sunny days up there are.

That's good news as it looks like I'll be on the LAX-SYD run again on DL this summer (oh, sorry, Winter).


If this were an American itinerary, LAX-ORD-DCA for example, it would be standard...

What I find amusing about this route is it's not considered "transcontinental" while DEN-JFK is. 2520 miles vs. 1620. No SC at LAX for you, non-member FC passengers and upgraded Golds and Silvers.

4/4/1/25% - I was upgraded for a 2nd flight, but lost it due to IROPS and sat in Y on the re-booked flight.

The one successful upgrade was LAX-LAS. It was a lovely 40 minutes.

DL and VA both have 9 abreast in their 777s. Seatguru indicates DL's 777 Econ sets are 18" while VA's 777 Econ seats (not Premium Econ) are 18.8". I don't know how VA does it unless they somehow...

As a lowly Silver, my 30,000+ MQMs last year were 100% flying miles. No triple MQM international bonuses, no AMEX bonus, no nothing. Just unadulterated flying. I know I did more flying than many...

Got any friends/family traveling soon? Buy the ticket for them using the voucher, they'll reimburse you for $50 less than what they would've paid and then they owe you dinner.

As a Silver, it doesn't seem to make much difference with the flying experience with UA/CO's elite program. Less chances for F, but a fair shot at E+.

However the major advantage for any...

Did the LAX-SYD RT on Delta in Econ last year. Overall, okay comfort for Econ, lousy but existing free food, and a highly touted entertainment system with dodgy reliability. Here's the full trip...

Yeah, I corrected that in my OR (took me a day to notice). The correct CO SNA-EWR nonstop times are:

7:45a-4:02p
3:50p-11:55p
9:15p-5:15a

The 7:45a allows for either an evening out or plenty of transatlantic connections.

Oddly, when almost booking (didn't book yet) a LAX-BNE via SYD itinerary, the review page indicated I'd earn 500 MQM on the VirginBlue SYD-BNE leg.

Once again DL.com contradicts itself.

Doing technical calculations of what percentage of the fare is equal to the AVOD and coming up with $25 is interesting, but ultimately penny-wise and pound-foolish for DL. When somebody has an...

I don't have the Y revenue numbers for UA, VA and QF so it's impossible to compare the impact of UA not offering a personal IFE on their bookings. But being a flyer of this route and doing a little...
