I've had the same gripe about lack of saver (and standard) awards for several years.

I suspect that as this thread proceeds many FTers will post their happy and successful experiences redeeming saver awards without any difficulty at all, just as in previous threads. And some will...

So why are you creating ridiculous metaphors such as sawing off a wing for the 1979 AA crash at ORD?

You know that the forklift technique was recommended in the manufacturer's maintenance...

NOPE, I didn't "kinda" leave out the forklift stuff. I deliberately did because the manufacturer's (M-D) engineers recognized that the actual danger was not the loss of an engine, but that it would...

WindFlyer: Recall AA at ORD 1979?

In 1979 an American Airlines DC10 crashed 20 seconds after take-off from O'Hare in a disaster in which all perished. At first blush it appeared to be a freak accident: the left engine fell off the...

Like you, Weero, I'm always asked my meal requests before everyone else as well, and I get all of the "Sir, yes sir!" polite 1K MM treatment at check-in, from FA's and gate agents. I've never...

Angry Elite Status Numbers Are Irrelevant To Award Redemption!

After reviewing the above-reference thread, I think that most of us "elites" are laboring under the delusion that our miles are more valuable than non-elites. Nothing could be farther from the...
