On my flight into PDX yesterday, when I had a paid upgrade and got the orange priority tag as a result, my bag was 10th off the carousel, and the first 15 bags were all priority-tagged, which...

PWM, good thought, but no - I checked my bag in curbside, with half an hour or more before boarding and an hour before takeoff. In response to 323power, I looked at my bag to see if it still had an...

I'm definitely not a MM, just a GM this year with no status. The only special thing about this flight is that I paid a few bucks extra to sit in E+ instead of in Full Steerage, but I didn't think...

You have no idea how happy I was to see it appear over the horizon (well, over the cowling around the conveyor belt), preceded by only one other bag, rather like the Emperor of Baggage being...

Priority baggage comes through, but I don't know why

Today marked my first UA flight in years - decades - geologic time - as a non-status flyer - and in a middle seat at that. (Okay, okay, United; I get the message; I'll fly more this year.) After...

"Supposed" is of course the key word. Maybe they talk better to each other today; I last tried this stunt in 2004.

The reason I did it is that I wanted to fly business class to Tokyo and back, and the business class fare was 40% cheaper if I added the KAL legs to the ticket.

It would be cancelled if all the legs were on UA, but I don't think that KAL tells United who shows up and who doesn't. I did this once, a few years back, as PDX-SEA-NRT-ground to HND-SEL and back,...

Me too - I had 15,000 and change in EQM, and 6 EQS, this morning (I thought maybe it was the credit card or a carryover), and 0/0 tonight.

I sat next to Rahm Emanuel on a December 23 flight out of Chicago. He was very pleasant and at my request went over to shake hands with Mrs. Law Lord and Law Lord Jr.

You're welcome! I'm in an occupation that bills by the hour, so I plan my mileage runs to minimize my time out of the office. Last year I did one to Taipei (two nights there), full fare coach one...

Here's an alternative thought:

1. Hope that United does a double miles promotion this spring. Based on history, I think that's a good bet, but no guarantees.
2. When it does, buy a full fare...

Portland RCC temporarily closed (December storms)

So says a demure sign on the front door, dated December 21 (Sunday) and still up on Monday evening. No explanation is given, but it's possibly related to the bad weather here.
