I kind of had the opposite reaction from the OP.

I'm hoping Delta cuts coach prices to PEK due to falling demand. I need use my GUC's before they expire. :)

I usually go to these SAN meet-ups, but I lately I might be missing some by relying on the FT's San Diego-based mod instead of checking the meet-up thread myself. On March 14, I'll be in Berlin,...

I'm newly retired. San Diego to Seattle is my favorite route. Lately, it's been bookable for $136 rt. With diamond status, it's almost a 100%-sure upgrade on the route. (and if it isn't, Delta...

MSPeconomist is definitely correct insofar as the threshold bonus on each 25k (or 30k for the Reserve card). The 5k sign-up bonus *probably* follows the same December 31 "spend" deadline (and not...

I've had good luck using GUC's between China and Seattle because Delta uses a 767-300. Any route with the more desirable A-350 is tough.

I have to thank N830MH for posting this kind of newsworthy stuff. Delta still flies to three cities in the Dominican Republic, but I doubt that ground travel to Haiti is practical. Bad news for...

Pick Row 3 or Farther Back

Not my intent. As one who usually flies 767-300 biz class because that's what Delta uses out of SEA and SLC -- and mileage-redeemers/GUC-users don't get the A350, I know from experience which seats...

Sad for the change, but I understand.

I stay at the Conrad in the Sanlitun area when I go to Beijing. Very convenient from Capitol Airport. Not so much from "Starfish."
Capitol is a dump, so it is hard to complain too much about the...

I get the second part about not storing credit cards. But what is the harm in always being logged in from one's home computer?
Not challenging your knowledge; I just don't know why.

Note to self: Delta likes to put their "problem children" in bulkhead row 1. Pick a seat in row 3 or farther back.

A Good Thing

I realize anything is better the 767-300. Is this new A330 better than the old 330’s with too-narrow “coffin” biz-class seats?

i flew PEK to SEA on the 767-300 today. Price was a bargain trip from...
