I'll say. Two days ago I was looking for non-stop U availability in December and January for ORD/RSW. There was good availability both ways including several U7 days showing on Expert Flyer. So 25K...

I did jump the gun a little and could have been clearer, but in 6 weeks, ORD/NRT will be gone. So there will be no AA metal flights to Asia come 1/3/2020.

Wow. I spent some serious time in that NRT club over the years. I'm retired now, but I used to do the 153/154 ORD/NRT round trip every 6 to 8 weeks for years. I must have missed it, but it looks like...

Flew out of RSW this week and the GA made one of the early boarding handicapped passengers put their bag in the sizer (and the GA would not assist the handicapped passenger). It was clearly a...

After 4MM on AA as a EXP and CK (now a lowly LTPL), I am traveling mostly UA now (just flying AA to burn miles). The UA boarding process is much better than the chaotic process at AA. Two things are...

I looked at all of the options again and moved to CSR. Beats Citi, Amex and the UA Chase cards as far as travel interruption and insurance benefits go. About half of my flying has moved to UA in the...

Yep. I have not so fond memories of watching Tiger Woods win the Masters this year in the ORD AC as a massive snow storm shut down pretty much everything. In and out. I am ORD based, but I would...

Good point, but I use my Costco Citi Visa for that purpose. Especially useful if buying items from Costco where they already double the manufacturers warranty (like TVs) and then the card tacks on...

As I stated in an earlier post, I have done quite well with price rewind and trip interruption insurance. Big downgrade for me. As I am flying UA more than AA now, I thought about upgrading my Chase...

I have recovered a little over $1K with the price rewind over the past 3 years and have used the travel disruption insurance a few times without a hitch. Pretty much paid the annual fees. Like...

Ever consider DFW-TPA and just renting a car and driving over to Orlando? It's only about an hour. It would get you there a whole lot faster than going the wrong way through ORD.

And people start lining up in the chutes well in advance of boarding. But the agents check boarding passes to weed out those who are not in the right place. Politely as always in Japan.

I am flying UA more and more and people over there start lining up in the chutes about 15 minutes before boarding starts. Everywhere I have flown on UA. It's just the way it is done. Makes sense to...

Several years ago, UA offered me GS without any action on my part and no challenge. A couple of other CKs at my firm also received the same offer which came through our travel group. I tried them a...

Also, since COS/ORD is an Eagle flight, be sure you can carry on your bags and not have to valet check them. Valet checking could add another 10 minutes waiting on the jet bridge for the bags to come...

AA has closed the gap on ORD/RSW a bit but are still more than $250 higher RT for P than UA. AA was over $400 higher until a week ago. AA has already lost our business on our next two trips. ...

If Bay side, that is a pretty good rate. City side - so, so.

Personally, I avoid nonrefundable rates. Too many things can happen that could result in a total loss.

I am in the same boat. Might as well try to get a 1K status match at UA while I am at it. I am sitting on a refundable ORD/NRT ticket right now that I could switch to UA for a $500 fee if a...

It really makes no sense to have fares 50% to 100% or more greater than UA out of ORD on routes where they directly compete. AA needs to fix this fast.
