I am not surprised. UA @ MUC are very good.

I still wouldnít take a 30 minute connection, however. A small delay and you have no buffer.

30 minutes at MUC is quite a gamble. If you get a remote stand (i.e., bus transfer), arrive at the T2 satellite, or need to pass immigration/security, you run a high risk of misconnecting to UA.

To the comment above on poor GS experience in FRA, I canít agree more. By far the worst overseas location for GS service. I fly through FRA at least once a month and almost never see GS staff on...

Not sure I understand your comment. I was noting that flight loads already have healthy bookings, since seats are occupied. I think your comment refers to assuming a flight is empty because the seat...

Curious if anyone has experience with upgrades out of Athens. I will be flying ATH-IAH in late June. Departure will likely be a Tuesday/Wednesday. 1-stop options are either ATH-EWR-IAH or...

I got the same error. Called GS and they said it wasnít an issue with the system, just that LH wasnít allowing even a waitlist for my flight (J-F with 11 seats open on the seat map). Sounds like it...

I would be surprised if there were any cancelled long-haul flights out of IAH the next few days. The weather is forecast to be rainy, nothing more.

The domestic flights may be more prone to...

I must have missed it yesterday (or it just got posted today), but the 764 does appear to be flying IAH-EWR as well. This makes more sense as it allows them to rotate the aircraft around the system...

764s were certainly used to GIG before. I remember that because it was my first 764 flight. As you point out, it will be new for SCL and I suspect the IAH-LHR route, too. Seems like a smart move to...

I am surprised they are running the high-J 767 to NCE. I can accept it is a high-end destination, but I suspect this is going to be an op-up lovers delight midweek. As a 1K or GS, I would roll the...

At least as hard an upgrade though. Those going to PSP in the ďseasonĒ are often going to their 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) home. This part-time home probably costs $1m. So asking $299 more for an upgrade is...
