If you are NYC-based, or close enough, then sure, "oops, you're spending the night in NYC" is OK.

If you are not NYC-based, then there really is not an advantage to "stranded overnight in NYC"...

I've said this over and over, and I guess I'll say it again: JFK is a crappy place, geographically, to make a domestic connection to/from most of the eastern US, and that seriously impacts its...

I like it because it ends the argument about "I paid for the right to recline!" by having the airline say "No you didn't, because we don't sell that here".

Other than that, unlikely to affect me...

It amuses me to think back to the merger days and how many people here confidently predicted the end of basically all the pmUS hubs other than DCA.

It turns out that:

JFK and LAX were at or...

I've had this happen twice.

First time was DL metal AMS-MSP. Showed up early, checked in at a KLM counter, no problems. But also no explanation.

Second time was on KLM AMS-SFO. Something wonky...

I remember when the merger was being finalized and the wise commentators in this forum just knew that PHL and CLT would have their TATL service slashed or probably just ended completely, and the pmAA...

It could backfire if airlines decide they don't like being pressured into buying CSeries planes they don't want as a condition of getting good deals on Airbus planes they do want. It could backfire...

Boeing doesn't have anything that directly competes with the CS100. But the niche for 100-ish seats already has two companies established and working on a second generation (Embraer with the E2...

What I gained from FT was not learning how to get status in odd ways, but how the various programs really worked, what to do when there were problems, etc.

I've heard that people sometimes go to cities in Europe and actually step out of the airport and do things in the city itself, instead of just connecting onward to somewhere else.

I've also heard...

I was CP on US before the merge, then EXP on AA. Status matched to DL PM in the last quarter of 2015 after I got fed up with The AA Way™.

So I (existing cardholder) got a new card in the mail the other day. Which was unexpected, as I hadn't requested one, and it wasn't due to expire for a couple years.

Anyone else have that happen...

$800 in vouchers doesn't cost the $800 cash money, though, and I think everybody who flies enough to have encountered VDB/IDB a few times knows that. So what the policy really said was "put us out...
