I've read them. I especially like that the No Blackout Dates fraud is actually governed by 1.7.c, which includes:


So, other than the blackout dates, there are no blackout dates. It's so heart...

Looks like I can book a room with points this morning. I guess the "special event" must have been quite special as it seems to have secretly been rescheduled.

I have not. Today's apparent non-compliance was pretty last minute and the 48hr threshold was crossed about 30 minutes ago so I'm sure the response will simply be that it's too late for them to do...

Yeah, I'm logged in when I've been checking. I've also been expecting to pay full rack rate because, well, that's simply the price one pays to get a room in a full hotel.

Over the past 8mos or so, I've run into a number of instances where Marriott outright refuses to honor their 48-hr availability guarantee. Have these all been "isolated incidents," or has this been...

It is pretty well established that the B6 web booking process is far and away the worst in the industry in terms of speed, functionality, and reliability. Really nothing new here. What I would like...

I ended up booking BOS-JFK-LHR-ZRH and ZRH-LHR-ORD-BOS with all flights AA-marketed. Came out to 21k EQM. Not too bad for mixing a vacation with a mileage run.

Hmmm. Interesting. When I do test bookings on AA, I'm seeing 1.5 EQM per mile for the BA operated legs. I also don't see any AA-operated flights to LHR from BOS - they all seem to be BA. Would be...
