If the passenger was UA gold could they SDC to a different flight? What if the passenger had luggage?

In that situation, SDC could be a pretty peaceful way to get away from that crew -- and if an...

Company Joining PerksPlus

My employer is joining "United Airlines rewards program for business". I assume that means PerksPlus.

What are the implications for a low-level employee? Will I see any fewer Mileage Plus...

Many people can survive many days without food. Water is a bigger problem (I have heard three days). Not eating for 24 hours does not threaten most people's health. The glaring counter example is the...

I travel a lot (50-75%, 110k miles/yr, mostly US domestic). I like the tarmac rule. I would rather sleep in a bed (or work in an airport) then wait in E while some manger in a comfy office chair...

Foam earplugs sold for industrial safety work well. They at least claim to follow a standard for performance.

When I want to listen to something I use etymotic...but are not as comfortable.

Aisle person moves

I love my aisle seat. It is obvious from a seat map I will stand 3 times as often as a window seat person (for economy 3 across). So if I don't get out of my seat triple it is a better flight than...

More than beans

I hope the winner protects their brand by insisting on quality brewing. I'm sure the FA's are capable ... and a little worried they will not bother because they don't understand the connection...

Carry on DYKWIA

I put the tags on my carry-on. EWR posts people to restrict access to Premier Check In. I think the tags save me from being challenged some fraction of the time.

They do not help otherwise.

More than brand name

I love Starbucks/Peets/etc in the store. At home or in the office I prefer fresh brewed Folgers over Starbucks.

Therefore I assume that the coffee shops are really good at brewing coffee (or at...

How much?

We do an ISO survey of our users. We now offer a $10 Amazon gift card to the first 100 who full out the survey (we struggle to get to 100!).

So how much should we offer to rise above the noise?...

Not clear

On one hand these observations match the trends. On the other hand, even a very polished web experience does not imply real. I once applied for a job based in a very cogent description. A very...

Well, this hub captive is carrying lunch/dinner from home. The irony is that I can expense meals at I am not sensitive to price.

One could ask the FA for permission. Then the denial can be used to explain absence of evidence and thereby imply a coverup effort. I'm not sure it is necessary to figure out what to do if the FA...

Is it possible that Tony Newman's Australian adventure has reminded gate agents to be more (and maybe overly) vigorous?

Customer friendly?

If the FA forced the OP to check the bag, then UA would have been liable (assuming the laptop was removed). But the FA found a spot in the overhead.

Would the former have been better for the OP? ...

Thanks for the cautionary tale

This is an event worth sharing. I am now wondering how to better manage my carry on.

This is why we can't have nice things

UA informs a passenger that he has a visa problem. Passenger boards anyway. First, I think UA did its duty to the passenger (not the Australian government). So the passenger bears some...

Your stomach

Others have discussed the appearance of greed. There is a second consideration. If you travel a lot, those garbage calories add up.

Plane lands on time...asked to allow passenger with 45 min cx to deplane first

Our flight left on time. According to the pilot, we expected to land early.

FA asks us to wait for some passengers in back on tight connections...and asked again as we pulled into the gate at...
