BR (BCal, not EVA Air :) ) flew LAX and JFK later, I believe, not in 1983. I think Bangor was a stop on the MCO flight. STL was non-stop but sometimes was STL-ATL-LGW. Please enlighten us with a...

Do other Skyteam elites get increased baggage allowance?

The CO website says that NonePass elites are allowed 70 lb. luggage on US domestic flights as compared with others who are allowed only 50 lbs. before extra charges apply.

How about Delta Elites?

I thought that CO has rights to fly to LHR (as designated by the US) but the UK has not granted CO LHR rights. Therefore, CO can offer codeshares on VS (with CO flight numbers).
