The only time (and I emphasize, only time) I've gotten "jammed" on DL was during the meltdown last month where New York was on lockdown due to storms. Even then, there was "wiggle room" in terms of...

In terms of AGR points, my best guess is that the two Regionals are pricing off of the $103 fare (103*34.5=3553.5, rounds to 3554).

As to the Acela...aside from an Acela-related adjustment to...

Yep. If you look at dates after the rollout happens, you'll see "Acela" and "Acela Nonstop". My guess is that someone decided that "Acela Express" and "Acela Nonstop" would be a hair confusing.

Based on the above remark(s), I wonder if this was a one-off due to a catering flub? In any event, a "trial" such as this really should be mentioned in advance, if only so folks can get food in the...

I'd take DL over AS, but I concur with trying to bang out 2MM first.

The phones seem like a reasonable adaptation (given that cell phones are near-universal). The rest is dubious, but that seems fair.

I use the Marriott cards for stays most of the time...but at the moment it's a question of effectively earning about 2.5 airline miles per dollar spent (via Marriott conversion at the ((6/3)*1.25)...

Quick point: Doing both LA/Anaheim and SD is quite plausible. There's a train station in downtown SD as well as downtown LA, and the one in Anaheim is only a few blocks from Disneyland (with a free...

Well, what are you thinking in terms of where you'd like to go? There's always someplace like Hawaii or Disney...and that pot of points could probably transfer out for some decent airline tickets.

Repooc17:
Fair point. Your initial statement implied that you had carried out a cancellation subject to the T&C allowing you to do so without penalty (which was my situation), hence my phrasing.

So, I have to wonder...if one declined the maid service/didn't receive the service on a given day (e.g. "My flight arrived at Stupid O'Clock* and the first day of my trip was a total loss") could one...

Yeah, I feel like gunning for 90k points and $200 would be overkill. Not a bad ask (given that you were told at 2200 that the space was still ready) but feels a little on the "rich" side to me.

Yeah...I'd say not charging you for the night and giving you a night's points, possibly plus a few thousand (since these are Marriott and not Starwood...sigh...points), seems fair (given that this...

I think you should be able to get a (significant) goodwill gesture at least. Might want to make sure you can show them the call in your cell phone log.

I had a similar issue with this two years back with Hilton (I cancelled a room online; it was a non-refundable-after-24-hours reservation but I cancelled within 24 hours).

In my case, it took a...

Perhaps limiting the number of stays (or number of points worth of stays) you can have held on advance would make more sense? Effectively a "credit limit", probably tied to some mix of your status...

I think it is fair to say I've got a low opinion of the whole situation:
-OP played fast and loose with a (semi-)targeted offer;
-SQ didn't maintain good controls on the offer (and may or may not...
