Is there still room for more people? I'm a definite maybe. I'll be heading in from the burbs, so 7pm works better for me than 6:30.

I requalified for SPG Platinum in August, and hit 75 nights last month, which I am still kicking myself for not quite making last year. Even though I didn't make much use of the last one I had, I am...

I purchased two PDX-AMS roundtrips on DL about four months in advance. As an AS 75K, I had the option of choosing any economy seat for nothing extra, or any EC seat for an extra $60 per person per...

I'm also blocked by this issue, and I'm running out of time for the trip I'm trying to book. BA's site is showing award availability on Lan, though, which gives me hope that AS will re-establish...

I'm terrible at remembering the names of FAs who are exceptionally good at what they do. Quite a few have impressed me for various reasons, usually when I am too frazzled to make a note of their name...

2011 AS RDM sale - 2.1cpm after tax - any takers?

Now that Points.com is offering 4,000 bonus RDMs for every 10,000 bought, that drops the per-mile price from 2.9 cents to 2.1 cents. Is this worth jumping on in anyone's opinion? I also noticed that...

Decent movie selection, and also free USB power

I like the movies and TV programs on the new L7, but the web browser is horrible. I'd rather use my iPod touch. One thing worth noting, however, is that the USB port on the L7 digEplayer will power...

Missed it by *that* much

I attended last year's MVPG lunch in Portland by sending a last-minute email to the link on the MP account page, and lucking out with an approval. This year I was invited a few weeks in advance, but...

Got any stories about pax outrage over DL's inaccurate A330 seatmap?

Has anyone ever reserved seat 11C or 11G on a long A330 Delta flight and sat next to some infuriated passenger in 11D or 11F who thought they'd be getting the choice seat due to Delta's misleading...

Looking back, I guess I was just lucky to have had long layovers at LAX, which made for a low-stress commute between AS and DL, AA, or CO. I've even had time to visit the SC or PC lounges.

As far as the Board Room is concerned, I assumed Tiffany meant Priority Pass, but as you pointed out, she'd have no time for the pancake-makin' robot in the BR if she only has 45 minutes to make her...

Hello,

Today I saw a photocopied announcement posted outside the PDX BR stating that BofA Signature cardholders would have access to the BR. The sign didn't provide any details in the fine print,...

Bring on the XTs

That would have been me during a recent flight from PDX to ORD, except I gave up and didn't ask for a third player. Both were Model 5500 units that looked like they'd been sucked into the engine and...

Hopefully just an overheated fluke
