That is scheduled to be a breakfast flight. You'll probably get a canapé with your pre-departure beverage and then a fairly standard hot breakfast.

Yes and no. Part of Verified by Visa is to give merchants an extra layer of confidence that the transaction is legitimate. It's my understanding that merchants opt in to the program, as I have plenty...

I took the landside bus because (a) I didn't want to leave the Polaris lounge until they closed because the AF/KL lounge in T5 is an abomination (The rest room is outside the lounge. The only...

You should be able to pull up the reservation by using the My Trips link at the top of the screen. It will let you enter reservation number, departure date, etc. I suspect that there was just a...

Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'm going to give it a go, because the situation over at T5 looks so bleak in comparison. Worst case scenario, they insist on a boarding pass, but sounds like I...

Hence the reason that I would rather hit the Polaris lounge until it closes and then go over to T5, get my Hello Kitty BP, and suffer through only two hours in the AF/KL lounge.

Whose lounge are you referring to? I would love to get into the Polaris lounge at ORD with my check-in confirmation, but given that BR operates out of T5, they certainly won't be chasing me down in...

Since I'm within 48 hours of departure, I have tried ACI both on mobile and the website. Mobile said to go to the airport. Web gave me a check-in acknowledgement, but it's quite clear that it's not a...

ORD Boarding Pass

I'm flying ORD-TPE-HAN with BR (business award booked through SQ), departing at 0020 on Saturday morning. Because my home airport is served only by AA, my first flight is on a separate ticket. I will...

KE changes aircraft all the time. Just because it's an A332 at the moment (Presumably what FlightAware is reporting.) doesn't mean it won't be a 772 on the date you travel. Check the KE website for...

For KE, I think the best we've been able to ascertain is that if the operating carrier charges YQ or YR on a revenue ticket on the route, KE will charge it on an award redemption. Use ITA Matrix to...

On SFO-BKK, $71.80 is an actual KE-imposed surcharge. The rest are taxes and airport fees.

Compared to BA (and other European carriers), this is all quite reasonable. KE's award chart is still...

Which 777 configuration? Assuming not originating at either LAX or SFO, I might prefer SFO for the 77W with Kosmo Suites 2.0. If it's the older Kosmo Suites out of SFO, then I'd go via LAX because I...

Depends on direction of travel. SFO-BKK is currently US$111 for taxes and carrier-imposed surcharges right now. BKK-SFO is US$220 as you say. A round trip is US$251 when originating in the US. A...

It's pretty clearly an AF/KL lounge from the permanent signage. Given that the AF and KL flights depart BKK around noon, it would be pretty standard to have the front desk staffed by KE-uniformed...

Something's fishy here. There is no KE-operated lounge at BKK. The KE website makes clear that they contract with two lounges there. CIP First Class Lounge is used for F pax on KE. The AF lounge,...

Most of the Embraer jets operated by regional parters for US carriers use recorded safety announcements. This makes great sense on the 50-seat aircraft, since there is only one FA and they can then...

I don't know. If you're not able to select the seat and you have your FB number in the booking, then it sounds like it's KE elites only.

EF is showing rows 8, 9, 12, 14, and 15 as "preferred" seats, so they must be held for elites until check-in or close to. Perhaps full fare J would make them available, but I suspect that given KE's...

You're going to have to be more specific. I picked a random week in February. Six of seven days had F award space ORD-ICN. The next week had three of seven days with F award space on ICN-ORD.
