A small increase to sample size

Just to agree with some of the other posters. On Saturday evening I left hungry as I was told it would take approx 20 mins for anything that was ordered, given I only had 15mins due to a tight...

At EWR it was a total mess. Everyone had to line up to find out from GA if you still had a seat. My friend lost a paid for First seat that still existed and ended up with a window in Y, turned down a...

Not enough data points

It has happened to me once, so don't quote me if your experience is different but:
we had a 777 swapped for the 787,
I kept my seat (almost certainly due to being GS) my friend lost his as he had...

Just not good enough

I totally agree. This week I have endured a 3 hour delay and a 5 hour delay at heathrow. I know that BA cannot control the weather but it was obvious that I was not going to make my connection in LHR...

GS has been little benefit

Despite being GS I have now stopped flying United. My experiences post merger mean that I now fly LH if I want *Aliance. Even when the staff were being helpful trying to deal with cancelled flights...

We are saying the same thing

That is the same scenario as coming in from EDI, by the time you clear customs, collect bag & recheck (if required) catch train, go back through security (assuming no delay for opt out) an hour can...

Cutting it very neat

I would rebook. When I connect at EWR from EDI I always allow myself at least 90 mins and most times I do not have a significant amount of time to spare. Even when traveling with hand luggage only I...

That is a pretty good idea, although knowing O'Leary he would probably force the airport to close you down.

Not giving her full credit

You also forgot that she is a media whore of the highest calibre. She will do anything to get on TV, in the press. She is the definition of self serving.

Need to cheat the system

It also doesn't work if you have a billing address outside the US. I eventually figured to not log in, select that I was in the US (even though I am not) and check for upgrade availability that way....

One step forwards - two steps back

I phoned back today and was told that while I could upgrade, there are no upgrades available. When I check availability there are only 3 seats in BF sold on the outbound leg and 1 seat sold on the...

Thanks for the info

This would suggest that I should have been able to do it. The flights were booked using my account, it was a wedding present. I think I might call again and see if I can get lucky.:rolleyes:

Don't count on it

I had a 3 hour delay on my last flight into LHR and there was no-one available to help. Had to sort everything out myself. To add insult to injury a 3 hour delay was worth one on board drinks voucher...

Connections are a zoo

I don't like layout of clearing security on connections. Once you are through that it is fine but I don't like the hassle at the bottom of the stairs and the congested layout at the top. I also...

Thumbs down Glad it is not just me

So far this year I am batting 0.000 in terms of getting any kind of response from UA/CO. I had hoped that using the GS line post 3/3 would see an improvement but it is just as bad.

So far this...
