It is a silly change no matter how you look at it. Percentage of daily club visits at any club by lifetime members = tiny. There just aren't that many LT members. Percentage of visits by LT...

I found the comment about the "sickiness" of going first to the Alaska website interesting because I am a great example of the cost of not understanding that. I was highly loyal UA flier (and as a...

Just remember that on every flight 2 of the most knowledgeable experts on that flight are sitting up in the cockpit. Moreover, they spend more time in the air in those aircraft than virtually any...

Another thing that I don't get - most of the crowding issues really tend to be at hub clubs. And those clubs are not going to be seeing many OAL visitors because at the hubs the clubs aren't...

Just one heads up - be sure that the PDX-SEA leg is actually in a jet with a F cabin. If it is in a Q (which most of those flights still are) then you will need to look closely at what fare class...

What these companies don't seem to realize is that possibly worse than the immediate annoyance of IT issues around booking and benefits is the long term behavior change that it causes in some of...

When I see a coach passenger dump a bag in 1st while there are still open F seats I make a mental note and if an F passenger winds up with no space I inform the FA. There is no excuse for this kind...

Arg no! Have as many groups as you want but only 2 lines. It is the lines that cause the crowding by encouraging people to - surprise - line up. PMUA had 2 lines. Red Carpet and other. I agree F...

I think there is a lot of talking past each other going on in this thread. I don't see any issue with UA boarding GS/1K ahead of non-status F. However, they have (potentially) put paid F behind...

I've pointed out for years in these discussions that what most people miss is the psychology of the system. If you create physical lines with signs that say "group 3 here" then people will get in...

Strangely, this change may actually ultimately help the "no time for GS" in the announcement sequence. There are enough 1Ks that the agents will pretty quickly discover that they need to wait or...

I certainly wouldn't reject them out of spite. For me it is a value/effort deal. Using MAGC meant not getting my bed made, having to remember to check for out of soap etc., maybe not getting water...

Could not agree more. Reality probably is that a lot of corner cases will get "solved" by how someone writes some code in the new tracking system. I would bet a lot that reality also is that there...
