36 minutes in ATL is not great, no. I'm sure there are others who can tell you all about how easy or hard that one will be, given your likely gates et cetera, but I'm on the other side of the country...

I don't think you will be able to turn your pair of tickets into one three-legged ticket, at least not in any way that will save you miles.

If I were in your situation, if forced to change, I...

Another option is DCA-SEA-KIX and vice versa. DCA-SEA would have to be on AS, which is always bookable at low if the inventory is there. The timing is decent too, 1h45m layover on the outbound or 4h...

If lie-flats are more important to you than having to make a double connection, MSP-NRT and LAX-NRT are both operated on the 777 with very nice seating. If the screenshot you posted has your actual...

No reason it has to be in 2013 -- your PM privileges may expire next March, but your award tickets will stay the same. (You'll just lose the free changes and upgrade eligibility if in domestic Y)....

While reducing one's SkyMiles balance is always a good idea given the recent direction the program has been taking, there's no reason to burn the miles on a second-choice trip. You've got all year as...

Originally booked back in October, I've just finished reissuing tickets for the fourth or fifth time, and have got an itinerary I'm really happy with.

I just got hit by this as well on a pair of award business tickets returning ZRH-JFK-SEA the first week in June. I'm not all that surprised to see it cut given that I actually managed to get two...

The best way I know of is to grab Delta's PDF flight schedule and scroll over to the city you're flying into/out of. That schedule lists DL codeshares and only DL codeshares, so any flight not listed...

The way that upgrades are actually coded in the system often (always?) involves having two listings in the mainframe, one confirmed in coach and the other on standby for FC. I have occasionally seen...

I would not have booked a connection that tight intentionally, but I also would not go to great lengths to get it changed. You will definitely be fine if your inbound is on time; if it's not,...

Very interesting!



I just went to the URL (this one (https://www.delta.com/databroker/bcdata.action)), which downloaded a JSON file that I cracked open in my favorite text editor.

This appears to be your problem. I only see J available for 152k miles on that date. I can get it all in Y for 60k, but only with long ~18hr layovers in EWR (arrive 1550 18JUN and depart 0900 or 1030...

For what it's worth, MSP-SEA also seems to get full meals during extended hours even though it's only 1399 miles. (Guess they round that one up!)

For the smaller stuff, I'm sure the onsite techs can handle it. Bigger problems might need a specialized team from DL or from Boeing or Airbus. For the really serious problems, they call in people...

For me it has depended on whether I have a DL ticket or AS ticket. DL-ticketed AS flights have posted for me right away (well, at the usual DL pace). AS-ticketed flights take until the next Wednesday...

AS mileage posts to DL on Wednesdays. It should post the Wednesday after your flight, though I have seen delays of an extra week.

It's a 763 on this route, not 762. And it's the domestic configuration 763, which I am told is very cramped back in Y. Somehow I always land the upgrade on the 763 though, even as GM (probably...

I can't speak to your other questions as I've never been on the 764, but I can say that the power should be plenty sufficient to run your laptop. I've never had trouble on Delta's 777s. Don't worry...

Major ticket change after schedule change?

DL changed the return timing on one of my itineraries so I now have an illegal connection, which means I can call and basically get whichever flights I like that day. How does that combine with...
