I've got one area of complexity that will be interesting to work out. I've paid to upgrade 1 segment to F. So, do the upgrade dollars go just to that segment? Or, are they prorated across the...

Update on this one. I decided that I would reschedule a JFK-MEX-LHR r/t for 2022 which will help re-qualify for Delta DM. Called AM and had them give me a voucher (EMD). I was able to immediately...

I was using the web site, which is why it was more surprising. I don't trust the app for schedule changes for exactly the reason you noted.

I was suprised to see a schedule change come out today (rather than Saturday). I had a flight in early June for BTV-LGA-DCA, and it looks like Delta pulled the BTV-LGA service.

I had checked my...

Agreed. One of the reasons many people had flown Delta was their operations and service recovery. It seems they have lost that edge. And, starting May 1st, there's little left to distinguish Delta...

So, one thing I'm uncertain of is the MQD earning if you upgrade 1 segment of a 4 segment round trip.

Here's what the FAQ say:

What if I pay to upgrade my cabin after I’ve purchased my ticket? ...

This works well for me. A cancelled trip on AM to BCN left a hole in my plans to get to DM. The boosts on all my remaining planned trips covered most of the gap. I was able to quickly add some...

Just got notice from AM that there's been a change to my June flight scheduled as MIA-MEX-BCN-MEX-MIA. Apparently it's now MIA-MEX-MIA. Not a surprise at all -- I've been...

Just a quick point of clarification. When they rebooked my SCL trip, they did call and asked if I accepted the new dates available. But, there was little choice or flexibility. I think if I had...

Did a quick google search on Tip Top, and they seem to have some good reviews. It's nice to hear they use actual sprits, and that they're not just a flavored malt product or wine speciality drink.

Checked the flights, and each one has 22 open seats (4 seats taken) I'm guessing that only 4 seats were open for RUC, and we'll have to wait for more to open up later.

I've got an IAD-SEA-ANC coming up in July. Maybe I'll be lucky enough for a schedule change so I could jump to DCA-ATL-ANC.
