Makes sense to me. Though that's what my wife was doing at the time that she was denied access to the lounge. She was on Delta metal SEA-AMS, then KLM for the AMS-Birmingham leg. All J class. When...

Thanks for the info! Also, am I correct to assume that if I'm flying on LH metal the whole way that I'd be able to access the Business lounge in FRA?

This may have been asked already, and if so, I apologize for the redundant thread.

I was on business travel last week, my first travel since the merger took effect. I had the opportunity to book a...

I've had the premium drink package twice now, though in each case I got it through the "Sip-n-Sail" promotion, so I didn't have to pay for it separately. I rarely go for the top-shelf stuff, so I...

Ah, so you're stalking me online now? *calls the moderators* ;) Lol!

Yeah, SWA has an entire terminal to itself in STL. Makes sense, since they really do run more than 60% of all traffic...

Agree with others that things like this can happen to any plane, and do happen elsewhere more often than we usually would hear about.

That said, the rash of issues does make me wonder if a part of...

You would think that they wouldn't be, but we seemed to have rolled snake eyes for this whole trip through DEN, lol.

And sure, the duffel does have a downside for storing fragile items, but at...

The only way we could fit the jeans into the (duffel-shaped) carry-on was to unfold them a bit and stuff them against the inside wall of the bag. (in other words, line the inside of the bag with the...

Oh, I'm sure the 'tagged for an overweight bag' club is pretty big, lol. :)

I suppose I just needed to let off some steam, lol. But, it seems there's at least a bit of a discussion going now around how we (and airlines) handle scales and weight issues, so that's at least...

No, it can do decimals. I rounded down for purposes of typing, but iirc, the bags were 49.1 and 49.3, respectively.

Good point, and a thought that had crossed my mind. I guess in the moment, I just hesitated doing that, thinking the agent wouldn't buy it anyway, since I would have been using "not her" scale.

Just to be clear, it's a small travel scale, one ment specifically for luggage. So removing it would save 0.1 at best. ;)

I could have regaled you all with the process we went through to weight balance the bags before heading to the airport. ;)

Still, I'm sorry if it turned out longer than folks prefer. My...

1.Oh, I agree. And If my bags had been over 49 on my scale, I'd have adjusted ahead of time. But I've had this scale for years, and it's never been off by as much as the SWA scale said it was. But...
