The goal isn't deterring fraudsters. The goal is providing clear, obvious notice and reminders to those who haven't waded through the rules to realize that you can't do this.

It depends on how good UA's detection mechanism is - if it's really bad, then maybe a few isolated death penalties enhance deterrence, though one could say the same thing for speeding - can't catch...

Right, and elite qualification has usually meant benefits for the *following* year (yes, if you are a new flier or flying more you may acquire or increase status in-year). As things stand now, only...

Agree you should be honest.

I'm a little puzzled though - if this violation occurred in 2014, then presumably you either were approved initially or renewed successfully once already after the...

1) Always a chance of snow
2) Boston typically gets less snow than suburbs
3) Boston knows how to clear snow, so unless there's a huge amount it won't impair mobility and, as others say, won't...

CBP does not have new political leadership yet, and DHS's secretary was just confirmed. My guess is that the final rule is awaiting for either a confirmed CBP director or perhaps for this issue to...

Thanks for the explanation and sleuthing! While it all makes sense, not very common to see a 757 on final approach to something other than BOS here.

Delta 757 into BED (Hanscom Field)

Odd one for me - saw a Delta plane fly over heading into Hanscom Field, Bedford, MA (which is almost all general aviation plus military). FlightAware etc. reported it as DL 8844, 757 from White...

Why end the program. Or for that matter cut off GSes who used to fly but stopped because of COVID? How much does it cost UA to give the status to people who don't use it?

Strikes me as unlikely that UA would create two separate invitation only tiers. It's one thing to have GS, where the criteria aren't exact for a relatively small number of people. But to enlarge...

I didn't realize it was a connection. . . I recall taking that flight to/from New Haven, but thought it was basically a one-stop flight to drop/pick up passengers "on the way".

Reports indicate that the new concourse may be open 3 months early, in April 2020. These gates are replacing the notorious 35X "gate", which was a ramp-level door to buses for RJs.
