The tool is sadly wrong about the earning on UA (it should be 200%). I have reported it, but it hasn't been fixed. I think a few people upthread repeated it as if it was true, so I hope no one made...

My GF and I loved AC's old product when we flew it--it has been one of our favorites, even compared to very modern seats. And the new product on the 787 looks...

Bumping this old thread with a quick question: Is the lounge staffed by LH agents? We'll be arriving in DFW on a separate ticket and may need to check-in or have documents checked.

It exists officially, and it is available at many airports when there is no PreCheck line present or when the PreCheck line is closed. At many airports, TSA has special cards they give out that you...

I've never seen PreCheck of any variety, lite or otherwise, at TBIT. Certainly never a separate line--and I ask every time. That alone would be a huge improvement.

When the TSA checkpoint in the connector opens, do we think it is possible that it will actually somehow be limited to arriving international customers?

Construction webcam (with interior lit at night) shows complete moving walkways with barriers set up at either end. I think they could make it happen in a couple weeks.
