Theres no evidence to suggest anybody made something up. There was nothing to be gained by doing so. Misinformed? Maybe. Or a delay can be caused by multiple factors, even if only one can be chosen...

This is all one massive distraction from the issue actually at hand. Management made the decision. Delay reasons are public. Employees can share them. There's nothing for the employees to decide...

This is the key question. If the charges are reaching your bank, and your bank is rejecting it, they can tell you why (fraud, address mismatch, CVV failure, etc.). If the bank doesn't see the charge...

And management has made that decision. Delay info is public. So why would anyone get fired for sharingit?

I personally would not spend 200k+ miles just to be on the ground for a day or two at each stop. If you're not going to take the advice to pick one destination, I'd limit it to two. If you try to do...

Why do you think delay reasons are some state secret? AA publicly posts delay reasons to the GDS. GA's state the reason for a delay when announcing it. The Twitter team will tell you the reason if...

Why do you want that specific fare?

If you're hoping that you'll actually get a round trip for $465, that's not the case. In addition to the base fare, IB will add a fuel surcharge (~$425). Taxes...
