GUM is not an international flight. GUM is a US territory and the HNL-GUM sector is marketed as "First" not Polaris.

However, UA still does fly HNL-NRT.

Aegean Airlines credit to MileagePlus

I think the answer is no, but I thought I would ask the experts.

I booked, via united.com, ticketed on 016 ticket stock, in Y class, a flight from ATH to JTR (Santorini).

On the UA website...

You're missing the forest through the trees. It is irrelevant that UA intended to fly year round (in fact the flight started out 3/w at launch). Market conditions change and given the JV with NZ,...

Are you still confirmed in First or did they downgrade you to coach? Or do you just not have an assigned seat? Also, do you have any status?

If you are confirmed, it's likely you just have to...

It makes no difference if the flight is full. Main line or RJ. It's not as if UA is flying many empty seats around these days.

Same story at AA and DL.

United has 26 flights (picked Thursday) between ORD and LGA/EWR. 15 (almost hourly) to LGA and 9 to EWR.

A mix of mainline and Express, including a 767-300 to EWR. That's quite a bit of...

The Centurion Lounges are almost useless. They are so unbelievably crowded I almost always turn around and walk out. I'm going to dump the Plat card since it's just not worth it

Under location services FAQ, with iOS, it pretty clearly states you agree to be tracked all throughout the airport. I'm pretty sure they are using GPS location tracking.

Interesting perspective on events. Especially since he was on the job, maybe 6 weeks?

I get it. Much easier to have a whipping boy instead of dealing with facts and reality.

Do you honestly believe the new CEO only a few weeks on the job decided on snacks as a priority item?

This thread is amusing on many levels. The giddiness is embarrassing.

You have no idea how large fraud is a problem at the airlines. I've seen numbers with 9 digits of annual fraud, just on MP. This is used for everything from FFP redemptions for seats, merchandise,...

The SFO maintenance base has one adjacent to the cafeteria.

Managed to pick up a few 60's shield logo items. However last time I was there, everything is basically the globe and/or tulip.
