Equipment - What's a DYI or DY1?

We have a reservation from AMS to Nairobi. It is a NW designated flight so I expect it is operated by KLM. The equipment type says "DYI." or perhaps DY1. What is this?

Also, is the AMS-MEM...

Any luck with award seats on Kenya?

We're heading for Lusaka from IND next summer on award seats. We can make it to Nairobi with rulebusted seats, but we're stuck there. An agent said Kenya Airways virtually never has award seats. ...

My wife and I were involved in a serious traffic accident in August and as a result, I will be flying very little or none for the balance of the year. I have been gold or platinum since the...

It's interesting how we've lived with change fees for so long that we now just presume it's an OK way to do business. No matter how you justify them, change fees do not relate to a proportionate...

Well, perhaps not an exact parallel, but when you buy a new car the options packages are typically less than selecting individual options.

Or a "Prix Fixe" meal that is cheaper than a la carte.

I ended up with 1670 MAP points (125,000 miles). I took 3 RT's to Flint (B fare) on one day and two of these earned no MAP credit. These two flights would have given me an additional 600 points. ...
