I agree with the second part, but not the first part! Sometimes we just have to do what we feel is right, not what will get an immediate response. That's why I'll be voting for Gary Johnson in...

1. OK, that one got by me. Delta's prolly the 2nd worst major airline in the US (US Scareway beats out Delta). Actually, Jetstar also only allows one bag. But, they only fly to HNL, so it's...

Sounds good! Got a bunch that I will prolly use this week on a TPAC flight from SYD.

Amen! In the past I've been both a CO Plat and a UA 1K. And actually it's not just the level of compensation when things go wrong. The whole manner of treatment of elites is starkly different.
