I was about to cancel a flight booked for this coming Sunday and take the credit. But I decided to wait, because if I'm correct, if the flight *cancels* before I cancel, I'd be able to get a refund...

Delta is extraordinarily generous in situations like this. But keep in mind it is very likely what they are doing here is giving you a full credit for the value of your flights without change fees. ...

If you're taking the family, give them the full Brit experience and give it to VS this time. I'm guessing that they've had the DL experience domestically - and this adds a fun flair to the vacation....

I am all pro-Delta, but I agree that if you're not switching to DL or trying to build status, you should probably stick to the direct on AA. The DL options to ANC just aren't anything worth...

I also have not had any of the struggles that people have named with the Medallion, and I'm only PM. I've still found them fair, accommodating, and competent. I travel a lot for funerals and...

Probably a good lesson for us all that if we keep an eye out when we're number 1/2 on the upgrade list, and see an upgrade processed, just move to the correct seat as soon as it is safe to do so. If...

I once successfully got them to go back in and make the choice for me. The agent had to escalate and it took some time but they did get it done.

I was honest and simply indicated I had been...

A random check of a long weekend in December, MCO-LAS, returns an Economy seat (you can't do Basic economy, since the seats wouldn't be matched to each other, I'm assuming) at about $420 x 2; first...

I agree that being willing to pay cheerfully usually results in a "don't worry about it" response, but not always. Typically I find this true if I've asked after meal service was over and they...

Correct - DL definitely has not (in the past at least) ever intentionally scanned for status and pulled upgrades. I'm guessing it is related to a schedule change or the Saturday updates.

Oddly, I have never used a drink voucher in my life. I have been PM for years. But in my wallet I only have 8 vouchers, all expiring 2021. Did old ones go away early, or are they just not showing?
