I hope all your award tickets in the future get downgraded to Y. After all, you are paying pennies to be in F.

Why would anyone pay $250 to cancel Y fare? Are you that angry?

My StR bali switched from points to cash. The agent is adamant I booked the cash rate. Good grief. Why do I have to watch my reservation and spend time alerting them to fix their problem?

That is a huge upgrade. I will take CX F in 3 weeks, but not JFK/LHR. Wouldn´t mind chateau montrose at all. I rather take that than Krug 2004.

Plat gets full breakfast. It is one of the best breakfast in the SPG chain, if not the best. I still remember how good the maldivian curry is.
Lunch and dinner range from very good to mediocre.
