Call customer service

As I recall, the privacy walls were about even with the top of my head when seated, and I am 5'10". I would guess the door is at least 4' high, maybe a little taller. Definitely plenty of room to...

As a mild germophobe, there is no way I would change in an airplane bathroom, and risk my feet or clothes touching the dirty (and often wet) floor. Besides, there is insufficient space in the...

This is pretty standard procedure, though it still seems illogical. I can understand EVA prioritizing their own customers, so it would be reasonable if they denied your upgrade until closer to...

Everybody enjoys a little more elbow room, but two econ seats are nowhere near as comfy as a biz/first seat. Each seat is designed for one butt, so it's not like you can straddle the two seats. I...

The situation with airlines is different, because a) you actually get something extra for each incremental fee, and b) the fees are optional. The resort fees are often touted as covering wifi,...

Halleluja!

The so-called resort fee is the most insidious FU fee ever forced upon the traveling public. Looking at rooms in Vegas next week, Circus Circus is advertising a room rate of $21, but the FU fee is...

To avoid the humiliation, those who proactively purchase a larger or second seat would not need to go through the sizer.

I have long lobbied for passenger sizers. Simply place two poles 17 inches apart. If you cannot walk through without touching both sides, you need to buy a second seat. I also believe it would be...

6 Tiers?

The fact that BA can identify 6 different "tiers" within the business class cabin tells me that they did a pretty poor job designing the cabin. With most respectable airlines, I find nearly all...

That is a nice thought, similar to the nice folks who feed an expired parking meter for a stranger. Unfortunately, your plan is not possible: A) the minimum transfer is 1,000 miles, B) you can only...

Don't mistake price for cost

I was just looking for award flights to New Zealand, and every single business class seat over a 3-month window is 200K or more (one-way). I traveled there a few months ago, and I had NUMEROUS...
