Assume the times you stated are incorrect ... but an hour twenty is definitely not enough time at LHR. Heathrow is a disaster to negotiate. Signage is expensive there, so they had little last time...

I board with a large roller and a big backpack/computer bag, never had an issue; the overheads are huge. Never paid any attention to the attire, but LOTS of pax sleep the whole evening SFO-LHR...

Well, you SHOULD easily be able to track all this. I remember a time with Chase Ultimate Rewards when I couldn't seem to find records of my points' earning and spending. I chatted with URs and they...

I just signed up for the Delta Platinum AmEx. It's been a long time since I had that particular card. I'll report back on the points bonus, laughing or crying.

This is all good to know ... I already have the DLAmEx and am looking for non-AmEx solutions. AFAIK, you only get one AmEx sign-on bonus, so that's a non-starter. I've never paid attention to the...

Ouch! This is painful. But you need to play the waiting game. If I can do it with AirFrance, anybody can. They just cancelled my flight CDG-SFO, I've been waiting for 6 weeks. Like everybody...
