1.67M to 2.4M

Had I remotely kept up my 2005-2008 flying rate the last three years (300K BIS/year, mainly B,Z fares, 85% UA and LH), I'd be pushing to lifetime GS. But sitting on my butt on the...

They are competing for full F paying Saudis, using the Suites on the 380 as the eye candy. Plenty of J traffic as well. With Qatar and Etihad upping the game for full fare "local" connect traffic,...

UA/EK (or other) RTW booking

I asked this as a component of a question over in the Emirates forum, but does anybody here have experience with the United desk (or even more specifically, the GS desk) desk writing RTW tickets? ...

I used this product half a dozen times plus in 2004-2007, with a handful originating in BKK (used to be $2800 C class) and the rest ex-US. Bizarrely, it was a couple years into that track before I...

I presume if you fly Qatar, you are flying from IAD, as they definitely do not fly from LAX. I'd be tempted by that, but only if overall travel time each way was within 12 hours or so, which I am...
