Plenty of BA's customers - specifically most of the ones who pay for CW and F - work 60+ hours per week and travel almost as much as the crew. So they oughtn't to expect sympathy on that score.

It's slightly worrying to note that the state of the airline industry in general and Oneworld in particular is such that AA, with all of its troubles, is not even the second weakest carrier in the...

The only reason LHR gets so much bad press on this board is that for a large proportion of AA fliers it is their only international transit experience, or their only one apart from NRT and perhaps...

Why all RJ? I agree non-hub service may go but given the size of the STL metro it makes perfect sense to keep mainline equipment on ORD and DFW, and indeed on LGA and MIA (and LAX if that service...

The incentives in AAdvantage are all screwed up. Don't allow earning in any fare class below H and all these issues would disappear rapidement!

A couple of months ago I tried to access the LGA AC with an AAirpass card and a photo ID. My AAirpass card gives me AC access but the TSA hadn't seen it before and put me through some rude questions...

AA is clearly the best carrier in J & F on North American transcons (except for CX JFK-YVR of course). Clearly better hard product than any carrier but UA and far better service than UA. That...

You can absolutely upgrade a D fare to F with miles. Have done it on several occasions. Furthermore, AAirpass J is cheaper than D - around $2,700 OW NYC-LHR. For full flex and last seat...

BA does have completely different food/drink in F and J. BA Club food is pretty bad - worse, I generally find, than AA int'l J. BA F food is generally quite good, and certainly much better than...

LHR gate numbers put the number of the terminal first. US, like most *A carriers, uses T1. When you are inside the terminal the gates will be marked without the number, e.g. "Gate 47".
