I suspect we’re about to see an influx of UA FF’ers to Big D!

Is this even legal?

UA (https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/harsh-new-united-policy-change-irks-fliers-amid-coronavirus-fears/ar-BB10XrQG?li=BBnb7Kz) bull whips their own customers!

They used to, sometime back, but too many drivers would dump rides they didn’t like and Uber put the kabosh on it. I’m not sure about Lyft, but I would presume something similar.

Also, even...

The Purser (Deborah) on DL83 yesterday made me fall in love with Big D all over again.

The entire cabin crew was -- let's just say -- "mature." But damn, they were on top of their game. The new...

Made a rookie mistake -- our flight out of NBO was at midnight, so we had dinner at "Carnivore" in downtown Nairobi. It was packed with expats, so we figured the salad would be fine (we obviously...

The DLAX Reserve is a much better investment than a dedicated SC membership, especially for DMs. Since DMs get SC membership as one of their Choice Benefits, if you have the AXR you can expand that...

I considered that, but it’s extremely rare for me and the Medallion line rep was cordial and accommodating. So it looks like they’re going to wink the eye, especially since we’re talking a podunk 28...

We went with Lyft “Lux”. Since we got the CSR Visa, they have a 10x points promotion, plus free “Pink” for the first year, which gives an additional 15% off all Lyft fares, so the difference was...

Was in F. Two seats available now. Going to call DL so they can free them up now vs waiting for us to board and making multiple gate calls for us.

Read through the salient parts of the referenced thread. The sucky part is that our layover is 5.5 hours, just about 30 minutes under the CoC exclusions where we could fetch our checked bags.

That’s what I was afraid of. One is a smaller rollaboard, the other is a big 60-pounder. I doubt that’ll go through TSA.

I supposed I could try, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

I’m giving away free samples of a new product I’ve invented called “Thick Skin.”

Agree wholeheartedly with OP.
