While I accrue AA miles, I'm a big fan of those 4,500 Avios award tickets (using credit card points). Short-haul F-coded seats (should really be J IMO) are quite overpriced by comparison and just...

If that were true, what would be the point in making the system so complicated? Why not just reduce the prices of those expensive tickets?

The old system rewarded purchase of the airline's primary...

While we can debate the pros and cons of the new and old systems with regard to airline profitability and customer satisfaction, I think it would have softened the blow quite a bit had they gone to a...

Can't argue with that, but United is clearly trying to reward flyers who spend other people's money. If they had wanted to reward the actual buyer, they would have simply lowered the prices of...

False alarm. Turns out that my reservations kept getting cancelled due to duplication with another reservation I had forgotten about! Once I figured that out, the old system seems to be working as...

Is it possible that AA is now really canceling at exactly 24 hours, rather than midnight? Although reservations on hold still show that they must be ticketed by 11:59pm, I've had several recently...

I sincerely hope AA does not do that. My benefits as a 1K rapidly faded as the new UA management elevated GS to the new top level and the only one they seem to care much about. So far I have...

Locking in existing high-spending elites may be quite sufficient given that the current program is already a big draw for the vast majority of flyers who are facing cutbacks in miles earning at DL...

I've had to cancel late a number of times because of a travel disruption (usually same day for rooms that required 24-hour notice). Although it's always required some time on the phone with the...

I can certainly see why any individual hotel might want to require day-before cancellations, but can't see why Hilton would make this a chain-wide rule. It's not like setting a quality standard that...

Not sure how it helps Hilton's revenue. If any property thought it would increase their own revenue to have an early cancellation policy, they were already free to do so. What does Hilton gain by...

I'm thoroughly confused about who this policy is supposed to be helping. In the past, any hotel that wanted to set a one-day cancellation policy was free to do so, and many did. Now Hilton is...

Yes, I have a Business card. Same annual fee as a personal card, I think.

The $840 savings is from a virtual office, which is discounted 35% from the normal $200/month fee.

Yes, CK is a half step behind GS in a number of ways, but that's partly what puts EXP ahead of 1K. As an EXP, I mostly feel like I'm in the top group, while UA in the last few years has made it very...

A new bargain at AA, relatively speaking, is that AAnytime TATL economy awards have been reduced to 45k miles each way on off-peak days throughout the year, while the UA equivalent is always 65k.

It wouldn't be surprising if CKs are treated programmatically like other EXPs, but agents are more willing and able to give them higher priority when asked. I believe that's the way it used to work...

Coming from UA, it seemed that AA had a tendency to design their seats with more little trays and cubbyholes, which may take time to discover, but gives you more flexibility once figured out.
