I’m sorry, but this temporary solution is not acceptable for two more years. It is truly a race to the bottom.

I fly in/out of LGA weekly. I always allow enough time and even though it’s very rundown, I manage. JFK takes longer (seems like traffic is worse).

I prefer the D Concourse, but they moved all...

Love this. In about 2001 I was doing a product pitch and Marriott picked my competitor. So, I picked someone else (Starwood), too. Fast forward to 2018 and I’m with a different company in the same...

Pepsi v Coke

Isn’t Coca Cola #1 and Pepsi #2 worldwide? Just about sums up moving from Starwood to Marriott (although not sure if they were ever #2 with their program).

My travel partners are in a conspicuous...

Tito’s Corn Vodka

Interesting some consider this an upgrade. I’m a Grey Goose guy and AA changed to Tito’s during that timeframe.

At the time, I assumed it was a Texas thing (Tito’s is in Austin). Thus, I never...

Ambassador is a Perceived Perk

I have been Ambassador for several years and while it’s nice, i really think it’s more perception than anything.

They can help get you out of a jam, with complicated reservations, special...

Doesn't surprise me. I see so much "bad" behavior while traveling. I now believe I am a relic at 57 years old who actually expects decorum, manners and education.

I fly MIA-JFK-MIA every week and...

I don’t eat on board anymore (few years now). Spirits and just about everything else are bottom shelf. Even the cokes are flat and you can tell they have been in the hot Texas sun or warehouse for...

Delays and Ops

Was informed of a delay today for my 520p FLL-DFW several hours (3) prior to departure. Inbound had MX and aircraft swap (DFW-FLL)

Arrived at FLL, boarded. Oops! Illegal cockpit crew. Driving up...

Keeps happening to me

GA and Admirals AAngel both said it's a new computer algorithm (well, that's my word but you know what I mean).

Happened three times in the last six weeks. Different scenarios as well: SWU didn't...

My use has plummeted since the app stopped working. You need to bring that back and I would be interested in understanding why FT is categorically against it.

I'm Not Linking

I'm in sales for a major tech company. In 2002, I lost a $MM pitch to a competitor. Marriott chose someone else, so did I (SPG). I buy from people who buy from me.

I will see how this plays out...

DFW on the secure side, but the airport itself is ridiculous.

Ticketing and security is upstairs, but signage directs departures downstairs - on some terminals. It's inconsistent.

1140 LGA to DFW. I don't get too twisted by stuff like this, but it's right up there with starting the boarding process late then beating on passengers to hurry up so they don't take a delay.

The Little Things

1. Making all standby passengers check bags - even this EXP when I cleared before boarding started and there was plenty of room once F boarded.

2. FA: "Welcome aboard. When you entered, you...

AA2437 Makes Emergency Landing at DFW

Well, there's that, too. The AA 319/21 experience, in general, is hideous.

Skylink at DFW

Now that I am DFW-based, I rarely take the Skylink trAAins. Due to weather, I had a terminal change today, so I hopped on.

Just my imagination, or have the trains sped up? Possibly due to...

AA2437 Makes Emergency Landing at DFW

So, I will now make a completely unfounded and irrational statement: I avoid Airbus metal because I think they are unsafe.

Does anyone have the data on "most-troubled" aircraft or data that...

I feel your pain. Similar scenario here, but was never denied boarding. Global Entry throws up, too, but my issue was more with a mis match in my AA profile, my green card and passport. Yours sounds...

Im already TSA Pre on UA. What do I do to retain it when I switch to AA?

AMEX reimbursed my $100 GE fee four years ago and recently (March) did so for my spouse. It's AMEX Platinum so not sure if it applies to all AMEX cards but worth checking out. Happened automatically...
