Just a note on the bus shuttle, they take a 1/2 hour lunch break and don't run, it's at some odd hour like 2:30-3:00 pm. Ask someone when you get there. I fiddled around in the T3 lounge until is was...

I got the January offer for platinum. May 25 has come and gone. 6700 EQDs and 42,000 EQMs since I registered for the promotion. The offer said "keep this status through January 2019 by earning 12500...

Thanks. AA and Oneworld? I can just imagine a lounge entry person saying Platinum doesn't mean Sapphire. But sometimes I think too much :p

Is status printed on your boarding pass?

Hiya,

AA gave me complimentary Platinum status for a couple months but didn't send a card. I might be able to get into a couple BA Business lounges as a Sapphire on an upcoming trip, if I can...

Very good, thanks. @IAN-UK, "the regular concerns of QR travel" refers to the blockade? I've never flown QR before but thought they were pretty good.

QR website said "business class not available on one segment"

I'm holding JFK-SIN-JFK with a stopover in DOH. Yellow box at the top of the page said something like in the title. But all the flights say business class (R). They don't let you choose a seat until...

Ad block help (removing for FT viewing)

Actually uBlock Origin. I'd be glad to disable uBlock when on FlyerTalk, but I don't know how.

I've gotten a few late fees over the years but never had a card suspended. Not sure what the answer is.

The minimum due is a tiny fraction of the balance, a small financial risk to run for another...

Boy, the language of these cards is tough to figure out. I hope this data point is pertinent to this thread.

I'm surprised at how harsh people have been. I think suspending a card for missing a minimum payment is draconian and an atrocious policy, hurricane or not. Charging a late fee, like every one else...

The UA travel portal has lots of bonuses and multipliers, if that is of any interest. I think I turned a $3k cruise into 21k miles. It was a cheap cabin that priced out the same everywhere I looked....

3X points at Amazon

Just showed up on my account page, Amex platinum with Membership Rewards points. Haven't tried it yet but the 2X at Best Buy has been working. Nice, eh?

But the outlier is Delta, right? $2300 for SNB-ATL in Y. I've never been to Africa before so I am at a bit of a disadvantage.

Is "US" a place holder for any United States flight? I tried...

That's too funny lmsalman, half the game is to scrutinize the planes/seats we can get.

Indeed, I found Emirates JNB-DXB-IAD on A380s both legs. Y was ~$570 and J was ~$2300. Both fares can be...

Well, Delta now says $2300 for JNB-ATL in Y.

I can get JNB-AUH-IAD in J from Etihad for about the same price, pretty much a no brainer. Both legs are on 789s.

You can't search "789" on FT and...

Three days in the Falklands, five days at South Georgia and three days Tristan/Gough Island!! There are only one or two repositioning cruises per year that do this, I figure it's my turn :)

Right, it's Emirates. But it's a 16 hour flight from any of the three Arabian Gulf hubs, same as JNB-ATL, so the idea of breaking up the long leg fails.

My trip is a pre-retirement splurge, a...

Very good, thanks. Not being protected in IRROPS bears thinking about. Doing the long leg in J does, too. Thanks for the idea.
