Thanks for the replies. I'm leaning towards the AMS option because of the fast track lane and the fact that it would be KLM vs. AF.

Short Connection in AMS or CDG?

Hi all, in March I am planning to fly from BOS to NCE, via either AMS (1h 5m) or CDG (1h 45m). I've been through both airports, and while AMS is very efficient, I will no longer have GM status as of...

Using Delta E-Cert to Book Air France/KLM Flights

I recently got a Delta e-certificate as VDB compensation. Is it possible to use this credit to book flights sold by/on the Air France/KLM website (or over the phone)?

Thanks in advance!

Flew in and out of JFK last month; no issues at all with GE even while carrying two red duty-free bags (full of Havana Club) with "CUBA" printed on the side.

I'm thinking it has to be a time-saving measure because this isn't something that Delta advertises anywhere other than the onboard announcement (unless I'm missing something).

BP said SKY, but the GA announced the standard "premium cabin and Diamond Medallions." I believe she also tacked on that the F cabin was rows 1-4, so I boarded PREM. Everything from then on was as if...

So it sounds like F actually showed up as a separate class in your case? For me, at least on the mobile app, it appeared that all seats—F, C+, and Y—were selectable (but since I was already assigned...

For DL42 BOS-JFK in C+ on the B712, inflight drinks were complimentary.

Flew LIR-BOS last March and saved about 2 hours of immigration/customs lines (based on when the rest of the group returned). I'd say it was well worth it.
