Thanks-- it wasn't coming up in my searches but I wasn't using the magic words, I suppose.

Requirements for "bid to upgrade": works with codeshare?

I bought a ticket on VS metal with a DL codeshare (HSV-ATL-SEA on DL, then SEA-LHR-ATL on VS on the return). First leg is 90 days from today. When I try to use the "bid for upgrade" button, I get a...

I did consider that in my posting yesterday-- back in the day, HSV-ATL always had drink service, but that stopped shortly after 9/11. It's a short flight, so it's not like anyone's gonna get...

I'm old and cranky. I've been a Medallion every year since 1999 and will hit 2MM BIS later this year unless I quit my job. I live in a city that has insanely high airfares and tons of other DMs I...

I tried to access drink coupons in the iOS app on Monday while aboard DL 30 in plain Y. I didn't see the coupons. Right now I'm aboard DL 31 in paid C and... the coupons are there. Sounds like a...

Lots of good discussion here-- I was traveling with gifts of locally-produced liquor for my dev team in Slovakia, so I had to check a bag on the outbound. I was just lazy on the way back, and have...

My first truly bad trip on DL

1.7MM BIS miles so far and this was the first trip I felt I needed to come whine about here.

Booked HSV-ATL-CDG-VIE, then VIE-AMS-ATL-HSV, all in premium economy. ATL-CDG-VIE was all on AF metal,...

Last-minute Diamond grasp

What the heck, worth a try. I can easily reposition myself pretty much anywhere within 450nm of HSV if that helps (probably not given DL's stranglehold on the markets down here). Might be able to...

First they said "oh, I'll transfer you, please hold" and then I got a dial tone.

Too late to recapture targeted offer?

Twice this year I got mailers for the "buy up to Gold" promo. I ignored them because I haven't been traveling.

Now I'm changing jobs and will be flying to SoCal roughly every other week. Sucks to...

I knew the COC set liability limits, and that those limits might exclude the camera. Since it was a freebie, if I don't get it back or get reimbursed it isn't the end of the world.

Reporting value of lost items w/o receipt?

I recently flew UA to a conference. At the conference, the organizers gave some of the attendees a nice gift: a GoPro camera. You can probably guess why I'm asking; when I got back to HSV my suitcase...

I got in for $250 earlier today… and the best news is that my employer (Dell, if you're keeping score) is matching it at 100%. If your employer offers matching, take advantage of it! If you're not...

iPhone app: checked in but no BPs

I am flying SFO-ATL-HSV today, then back again on Thursday. As much as I love the HSV airport, TSA there doesn't have the capability to deal with online BPs. DL and AA both apparently know this, as...

Interesting point. I fly AS a few times a quarter and have been very pleased by the quality of inflight service. However, I also flew NW for years and.. well, not so much. Would a unionized corps of...

763 USB ports: do they ever work?

I am on a domestic 763 and, for fun, tried plugging my iPad into the in seat USB port in 13C. Nada. So I tried my iPhone. Also nada. My seat opponents' ports don't work either.

I have never had...
