If you look at the total travel time, that's a dead giveaway that it's not a nonstop.

Looks like DL 588 was, at least for a bit, a "direct" flight PVG-SEA-MSP (with an aircraft change in SEA).

Couldn't they have brought back those amazing caramel Michel et Augustin cookies rather than the not-quite-as-good salted dark chocolate ones?

Partner EQM does show up if you check the charts for oneworld partners (BA, Cathay Pacific, etc). AA typically doesn't give EQMs for non-oneworld partners unless booked as a AA codeshare.

Sure, but why not just implement a DL-style policy of "can't change connection to nonstop" (e.g., on DL you can switch from JFK-DTW-DEN to JFK-MSP-DEN, but not to JFK-DEN nonstop) rather than this...

She can add you as a "nominee" on her online BAEC account. This allows you to call in and make changes on her behalf.

It can be done in some cases. I'm not sure about Aeromexico specifically, but I've had no problem redeeming Delta gift cards for travel on AF and KL marketed/operated flights - eg LHR-AMS on KLM.

Are you in D1? If so, and if ATL-LAX is on the 777, then I'd do GRU-ATL-LAX. Otherwise, it'd be a no brainer for me to do GRU-JFK-LAX due to the lie-flat cross-country.

KL already does fly AMS-DEL daily, and AMS-BOM 3x/week (to complement AF's daily CDG-BOM/CDG-DEL and 5-6x weekly CDG-BLR). I could see KL moving to daily on AMS-BOM if Jet goes under, and depending...

The only 1-stop itinerary that's all- Skyteam/DL partners would be SLC-AMS-BOM. AMS-BOM operates daily on Jet Airways and 3x/week on KLM. Both are Group 1 partners.
