Reluctantly staying for a few more years. At just over 1.8 million LT miles, I'll go for LT Platinum* and then go free agent. UA doesn't need me. I've been a 1K for years, spending less than $5,000...

I will update with any developments. Thanks for the input. Yes, I did have earplugs (industrial strength from Home Depot), and yes "Status" is all important to me - and to all of us, I'm sure.

This lady was right near business class. I felt bad for the guys in there. It was all very Larry David. Anyway, I should have bit my tongue, but I was just so sleep-deprived.

Got angry at another passenger, FA reported me to pilots. Now what?

I couldn't help it. I got mad at the mother of a baby that squealed the entirety of a 10-hour flight. She complained to the FA. The FA told me he had reported me to the pilots, "because United takes...

BUR is a great airport if you want to make $ by volunteering for a later flight. I just wish they had a United Club, although the waiting area is pretty mellow with unlimited free wifi.

Alas it seems to be about $601 from LAX via HNL and GUM. Not the end of the world. I might give it a shot, but that HNL-GUM leg is a killer.

P.S. - It's $551 with dates of May 8 and May 10.

As you surely now by now, the 1K benefits are hardly anything to write home about. At this point, as a longtime 1K, I know the game and don't expect much either.

I would tend to suggest mid-tier...

I can get a $140 fare on March 6-7, but it involves 11-12 hrs overnight in MCI - which is out in the sticks, alas. Probably easier to pop over to TPE instead.

She did everyone a favor. Imagine if she had waited until the plane was 30,000 feet up in the air before she did her rant.

Could be quite lucrative in terms of CustomerCare certs. What do you think a 1K would earn for this? [Pejorative comments edited by Moderator. ]

*A lounge: UA to GRU, Azul to SDU

As the headline states, I have a United ticket IAD-GRU-SDU, with the domestic leg on Azul.

As a *A Gold, can I get access to the *A lounge in GRU before boarding the flight to SDU (i.e. Rio)?

Not to mention (likely) complete lack of mileage credit for UA fliers on NZ metal + potential issues with baggage fees on domestic connections down there.

Evidently.

Shame on me for trying to choose an LX seat one month in advance when LH was more than happy to comply. Live and learn.

I just learned that the hard way: somewhere at Auckland airport there is an abandoned bag filled with jars of honey and Marmite. Be very wary of this new LH rule.

You are right on both counts. My point is that they are not providing the seamless travel expected of an alliance.

Set up Swiss profile, it won't add the UA-booked codeshare

As a UA 1K/lifetime *A gold, I booked via United.com an itinerary that includes Swiss-operated flights on the inbound.

Good news for this leisure flier. JFK is over-rated and has horrible public transit to Manhattan. Just leave LGA unscathed. That's a great little airport, and convenient.

To the "snob factor"...

Apologies if old news, but a gate agent said "mechanical delays" at EWR - where flights are backed up tonight - are caused by maintenance workers on a go-slow amid contract renewal talks.
