Do any US carriers impose a weight limit on carry-ons? I've only encountered it while traveling internationally... but then again I mostly only fly AS domestically and obviously they don't weigh it.

Yeah, they're less than 20% of the way through the airbus fleet at this point. At this rate, early 2020 seems ambitious.
I wonder if the delays with the MAX will impact the reconfiguration schedule?...

By multi-city tool, they mean creating an itinerary with multiple stops. I'd post a screen shot but flyertalk photo loader doesn't work when I'm on my work laptop.

Go to Alaskaair.com and on the...

Not sure about offers to re-book and accommodate via hotel. It's possible they made that offer while I was camped out in the UA lounge - quite a few people seemed to have made alternate plans as we...

Yeah - that was a rough night.

Thankfully they kept the UA lounge open to 1:30AM (usually closes at 11:30PM) since they had some of their transcons delayed so at least had a little extra time in...

Talked to GAs to get a bit more details (been hiding in the UA Lounge). Looks like the delay in SEA was due to lack of available aircraft to swap to.

I would've thought with all the inbound...

I realize a crew time out was extremely likely, just seems odd that it takes them 4+ hours to swap crew and metal in their hub.

Also frustrating that the inbound flight had been diverted, turned...

Domestic legs must have an AS code-share in order to earn AS miles.

The safest way to be sure you're going to get credit is to just book it through the AS website, it's pretty clear when a flight...

It kinda makes sense that right now they don't offer reciprocal lounge access at SFO between the two lounges because AS uses the Cathay Pacific Lounge. But once AS has their own lounge, it wouldn't...
