With the right expectations, there is no harm in asking to see what can be done. If you have a better experience iluv2fly, that would be great news. With GS I almost always get a re-print of a...

That is a positive - the GS lobbies in SFO, ORD and LAX have all escorted me to the front of the non-pre line.

I don't think you need to worry about your boarding pass. All the information is...

You will have SSSS for the domestic segment, but that technically doesn't mean anything. What is a bigger deal is that you will be kicked out of TSA pre. Sadly I have tried to rectify that on my...

That feels like on the edge. Your home base is hyper competitive, and they are booking business class all the time. It seems the 40's are the spectrum of possibility: low 40's bad, high 40's...

And how in the world would AS plus any of the big 3 survive the regulators? That would be a step too far I think in today's environment.

Replying to my own post. Party foul.

Finally is resolved - I left them alone after the last "X" return figuring that maybe being a pain wasn't really helping my cause. Anyway, entered yesterday...

I'm sure all the old flight simulator fans would recognize one.

I just arrived on MEL->LAX with the new system. The only time I noticed something different was that it was prompting me for a...

I get the struggle if you are always in those regions - I have also had the fun of JNB-FRA too many times without any options. If you are also dancing around south Asia and the Indian subcontinent,...

Are you willing to make the extra stop to feed "real" PQD into UA? Where are you coming from that LH/LX has such a presence and UA does not? Even that, it is surprising that you haven't received...

I did so based on your advice, and it was very helpful to start the process. But unfortunately I haven't been able to close it out.

It turns out that my indiscretion from 20 years ago was the...

I understand that the reversing process could be painful. I believe it would have to be LIFO (Last in first out) the whole way down the line. You were the last to get upgraded, bumped back to E+,...

I'm sure you got it from the route, it was a B789.

It was a middle seat, I believe an "E", and I was moved to a nearby "F". So yes generally less desirable to me since now I have the occasional...

I have seen this unfold recently on two different DEN-MEL runs. One that was obvious to see what was happening, and one where I can't exactly say for sure.

First case, DEN-LAX. 777-200. We...

Agreed. But, I still think there is room for obfuscation, such as Sapphire points for travel through their purchasing power, or UA miles for cheap tickets to get some very rare high value returns. ...

It has been crazy frequent bad weather in the evenings this year. In the last 5 weeks, I've done the DEN-LAX 7PM flight 3 times. All 3 times is has been delayed because of the evening DEN weather. ...

Thanks. Obviously these days I only O/D in DEN. So I don't get to see those very positive experiences. I've received variations of such treatment in ORD/IAH/EWR/SYD, and really appreciate it. ...

You didn't give much indication of your direction. If you were going west coast to NRT, which makes sense, then UA from SFO/LAX/DEN. I would suggest Singapore Airlines as the bridge to go from NRT...

UA seems to be only balancing traffic, not adding traffic for AU/NZ. I doubt they would put some into DEN just to borrow from IAH/SFO/LAX.

How is their presence manifested? How do they engage with you? I am comparing it to DEN where I don't think they exist, and maybe I'm just not looking in the right places.

The Global first section of the existing lounge is perfectly sized for a NRT Polaris Lounge. About the size of the LAX lounge. I don't see them going off for more real estate when what they have...

It is crazy how little options there are to travel internationally directly from Alaska. Even this flight to EWR seems like a backtrack. I go to the 49th state to FAI/SCC once or twice a year, and...

A good point, but also a good reminder. I just signed up. I think lots of us will sign up. I just did, but I have to admit I'm skeptical about the benefit at DIA. There have only been a few times...
