Wow, what a great thread. So much to unpack. Status is not even close to what it used to be worth. That said, IMHO flying should be all about what makes the most sense to you and what you value as...

I'm hoping that they give it one more year. A wise way to do it would be to look at when countries open up their borders. Frankly until countries feel it is safe for travel, then they will open their...

Two schools of thought here: 1. AA didn't owe me anything. I got 4-500 miles certs +AVIS. I"m grateful for it. 2. Why does the "snark" patrol have to rear its ugly head here. .....ing about getting a...

For sure. Every revenue dollar matters. Truthfully, I have an empty exit row to myself on the 319. I think I don't mind the leg room and having nobody next me is better than a few extra inches of...

I've used the strategy of sitting in coach on East bound flights. As EXP, I usually choose exit rows for leg room. On the return I pay for F as its a longer flight and I want the extra space as well...

In times like these, airlines could use all of the positive PR they can garner. Going for a cash grab is not surprising. Hoarding tons of cash and pining for government loans on top of it. And how...
