Not the worst lounge behavior, but still.

The posters explaining the relative smoothness of the I/D transfer are correct, at least on the elements after clearing passport control. However, the US flights all come in right after curfew opens...

Iíve flown both QF and UA between the US and Oz. The service on either is comparable to be honest. But like the other poster said, Iíd go for the lower points total and use up your AA miles unless...

Happy Birthday wishes

I want to thank the Commutair crew on UA4997 this morning for wishing me a happy birthday. The FA told me in person and the pilot wished me happy birthday over the PA system. Something they didnít...

I think there's room for more than one airline to have a strong focus city/mini-hub at some airports, as there is at LAX. BOS comes to mind, as do SEA and SAN. And it might make sense to beef up...

I noticed that the texts from UA are more detailed now. Flying IND-ORD-JAX last Friday, I got this within 2 minutes of landing at ORD:

"Welcome to Chicago!

You'll arrive at Gate F11. Your...

LOL, good point. I wouldn't give high marks to any of the Hawaiian airports, but in my mind I really like them because they're in paradise!

I believe NW had established the focus city at RDU (along with IND and MKE IIRC) pre-DL acquisition. That never really went away, maybe never grew a whole lot either. It seems that the battle for...

Ages ago, it was much more common to have to connect at HNL to get to popular destinations on the other islands, at least when flying from the mainland. Now, UA and others offer several nonstops...

Sadly, you are probably right. Hiring a room in a place designed for sleeping, the expectation that you are simply allowed to do that exact thing - sleep - is just too much to ask. Welcome to 2019,...

When I think about it, I believe someone at EWR put a bunch of us from the cancelled EWR-JAX flight onto EWR-MCO, and then just washed their hands of it. There were six other people who presented...

Thanks to everyone for the comments. FWIW, no DND sign anywhere in the room that I could find. But even had there been one, I disagree with those who make this my fault. I had told the front desk...

The only option on the app was the same flight nonstop next day, 24+ hours out. But during IRROPS I always call the 1K desk because they can help with standbys and with routings. I've had it happen...

That loud housekeeping bang on the door that startles you awake

So I was horribly delayed from a cancelled flight and forced to reroute myself to MCO due to weather in the NYC area. Knowing I'd be getting in very late with a 3-hour drive ahead of me, I decided...

EWR IRROPS: UA sent me to a different airport

Yeah, that's what 1K desk told me when I called a few hours out. I decided to give it one last try about 60 minutes pre-board. They had cleared the upgrade list at the gate, and there were still 11...

Always pack a couple of protein bars and some nuts/trail mix. Even when flying J/F. Especially on UA.

Is that correct? Yes, you get bonus PQS flying those fare buckets, but I thought the 4-segment minimum was 4 segments, period - not subject to bonus?
