Yikes. You can tell I haven't traveled for a while.

Yeah, then I would say the Sheraton Grand by Green Park is the best option. Walk across the park to the Churchill War Museum; take the tube...

I like the St. Pancras Renaissance, but it is not that convenient to Heathrow by Tube. If you take the Tube or a Taxi to Paddington St. and switch to the Heathrow Express, it's OK. Also, the only...

I once saw a cart go nearly the full length of the upper deck of a 747, crashing violently by the stairs. It was quite impressive how fast it was going. If someone had an arm out, I'm pretty sure it...

Not my experience. I fly mostly paid first and I'm paying exactly what I was pre-covid. In one case I paid nearly the same for a SFO->BOS flight, but this time it was on crappy 737s instead of 757...

I think people in the FT bubble have no idea of how bustling things are right now. I just went through DEN yesterday; It was so crowded you could barely turn around. In my local airport, United...

yeah, objectively, it was inferior to the Red Carpet Club of the time. But it had the agent and the air of exclusivity that came from ducking into a secret door. It definitely stroked my DYKWIA...

Sigh. The 1K lounge. I thought about it as I walked by it in SFO the other day. It's now some kind of employee office.

I think they'll go with the demand they have right now, which is a higher mix of leisure and small business travelers. Which is why I don't think they will extend.

Why give away all kinds of free...

A whole lot of wishful thinking in this thread. I suspect I'm not unlike a lot of other GS and 1K members: I've already spent around $10K this year. If overseas travel opens up in Aug. (which I...

I'm seeing First Class cabins full, often before the GS complimentary upgrade window. Phone agents I've talked to tell me they're seeing a massive surge in bookings right now.

It's amusing to read the comments to this article. Just scanning through, I don't see a single one that is positive about UA or Kirby. They vary from negative to excoriating.

1000 miles for $6000. I'm not sure why they bothered. No offer at all would have been better. This is actually insulting. I am so canceling this card when the year is up.
