I just picked up 4 segments on NWA - one of which was DL metal. The NWA flights were great. I was upgraded on 2 of 3 flights, the one in coach was the 2nd row of coach, aisle.

DL gave me a nice...

Unless I'm mistaken, I don't believe that this is a new policy. As far as I can recall, your fare was always the first factor -in addition to status. For example, an Ivory member on a Y fare would be...

The SkyTeam Elites benefit page doesn't have the upgrades as a published benefit. I know the AF.fr web site does.

Good!

I'm hoping my flight to LAX on the 2nd keeps filling up. That's a long flight in Y.

Incidentally, I flew to ORD in February on a cheapo fare with 2 children (award tickets). Coach was full and...

No, Air France is still doing this. I had to cancel a ticket and they offered me this option. You have to fax the request with your itinerary to Air France. The number in the US is +1 (954) 835-1307.

Sorry, but were scheduled to leave at 4.40pm and didn't start boarding until around 9.30-9.40 in the evening regardless of Delta's claims online. Incidentally, the inbound flight (which was 5478, I...

RE #1 - Perhaps, but it seems pretty poor to leave someone basically in limbo for 48 hours after an intl arrival without any confirmed plans of when he'd be able to leave.

I believe you have suggested asking for upgrades before, but I really believe that this is not looked well upon by GAs.

Given the number of US-based elites that would likely qualify before a...

Reminds of my flight from CDG-JFK this week

A Y pax asked a FA "what is the quickest way for me to get off the plane upon arrival? I have less than an hour to get to Terminal 6" just before take-off. The FA asked where she was seated (24A)...

YMMV on the merits of the upgrade fee, etc. I'm a SkyTeam Elite Plus member and didn't feel any entitlement to a seat in F (esp on a CRJ!), it just seemed odd to me that they would have let those...

DL 5469 on 9 March – A new low for Delta

I very rarely fly Delta airlines anymore after being a very frequent customer and CRC member for a number of years. Yesterday’s incidents at JFK reminded me of why I made my choice.

It's a good 10 minute walk (and 45 minute procedure total - walking through 2E, taking the shuttle, passing immigration, customs, and the long walk to 2C).

You shouldn't have to ask

Since non-American FB elites are "entitled" to an upgrade, it is supposed to clear 3-5 days in advance. In some places, like between Chicago and Detroit, they often don't do it in advance since paid...

The end is here

I can say with certainty that NWA is no longer upgrading FB members. Specifically, they are no longer upgrading US members. Though the rule is that the upgrade doesn't apply to American or Mexican...
