Neither.

It is normal at pretty much every hotel (except the hold is usually $50 or $100 per night).

AF has the more comfortable seat, but the 772s are pretty tired. LX keeps its cabins in much better shape. ZRH every day over CDG for the transfer. Nothing wrong with trying AF/KL and deciding for...

LX isn't bad, I'd take them over AF.

And thanks for posting the fare! I just booked on miles yesterday for September (LX RT from SFO).

Also, the ST/OW fares now available from SFO.

Right. Seems ripe for an upgauge. AA has cut even further, only flying the route 4 days per week with a 319.

And still selling out just about everything. That's with sales capped at 2/3 of seats...

I don't know about "a lot" of flights, but UA has been selling out SFO-PHX pretty frequently. They (along with AA and WN) didn't anticipate the recent increase in demand, which came pretty suddenly.

I wouldn't underestimate Amex's ability and willingness to mess with cardmembers they deem to have gamed the system. They expressly reserve the right to cancel all your Amex cards.

First class is boarding group 1.

Personally, I prefer to board last, especially with COVID-19. Board first, and you may have 100+ passengers walking past you. I actually prefer flying WN right...

I'm choosing hotels based on overall quality and value, just as I did before COVID-19. Marriott still comes out ahead a reasonable percentage of the time. Some of the factors that can still favor...

I can't figure out what Amex is currently doing with MR points posting. For a while, they were posting when I paid. That's stopped. Nor are they posting when the statement closes. They post at...
