I find it a bit surprising that there's so little customer protection here - a delay which (depending on the facts) may be a far small nuisance than having to fly 12h in Y instead of F, gives you...

I think part of the issue may be that there's nothing really next to the UVF airport - nicer hotels are an hour or more from the airport. I'd go for Hotel Chocolat though ;)

Yup, and there's actually a lot of good info upthread and in the Wiki which helped me put together this trip. I had a pretty limited set of dates when I could do the trip though and even if all other...

I just built a multi-city itinerary using the tool on the UA website - not cheap, but looks like it's difficult to do it otherwise (I started in NYC and finished the trip in Tokyo btw). Most sectors...

15 Avios is a good rate (effectively 15% off at my 1p valuation). I generally use hotels.com (10%) combined with Topcashback (only 2% recently - used to be up to 12% a few years ago...).

MAJ:

I spent 48 h in the Marshall Islands, arriving on UA 154 at 10:35am and leaving...

Austrian used to fly this route from Vienna and discontinued it about 10 years ago. Don't think there's enough demand (business traffic) for a direct flight. I found QR from LHR via DOH pretty...

My skis are about 200cm in the bag and I've never had any issues on BA. I've actually spotted the 190cm recently and asked a few friends who are avid skiers and frequently fly with skis - they...

It seems that if it's BA-marketed and AA-operated, you should be charged for baggage. Having said that, on a recent flight I was not...

If I recall correctly, the Skyview lounge in Basel was voted the best lounge in the world in the Priority Pass network a few years ago :)

I'd go with VS - I like the Clubhouse, I don't like the seat (either upright or flat bed). I assume some of the flights may be operated by DL - the DeltaOne product is perfectly fine for a TATL, I...

You can get a ClassPass trial for free and check which gyms in the area accept it. Diesel Gym seems to be right up the road from the airport.

Re 12 - would also be nice to see priority baggage that is actually prioritized.

On WTP bedding, I feel like calling it "bedding" is a bit generous given that there is no bed.

I'd love to see Shake Shack open in T5 -- just like in T4 at JFK.

I'd just add that you need a US passport or US driving license to use Clear - it won't let you complete the sign-up process at the airport with a foreign passport without some kind of US-issued ID.

I don't think "sweet-talking" one's way into the CCR is any better or worse than sweet-talking one's way into CW/F/CE, wild on-board upgrades for family members, passengers on staff travel, etc. This...

Same experience here, was there in December and the food was very poor compared to what the pre-flight dining used to be in the old lounge.

I was wondering if people have any practical experience with HBO AA flights booked as BA codeshares (for BA elites). This thread implies the baggage allowance is zero as the marketing carrier is BA.

Typically one glass of wine with meal service on LH; no alcohol on SH or in the lounge.

I've seen them on both ET and WT redemptions in the past - however, never considered them a good value since these don't give extra TPs and CE and WT+ are usually not worth the price difference.

Is the additional baggage right? I AUP-ed an HBO fare from WT to CW and was told that I'd still be entitled to zero pieces of luggage. Might have been a misinformed agent though.

May be a long shot since most people seem to do this trip in one go, but I thought I'd ask anyway:

Any recommendations for diving operators in Marshall Islands and Chuuk?

Yes, there is. Pricing from Canada or Mexico will obviously be different than from the U.S., so I'm sure that if you're willing to start from YYZ or MEX instead of JFK directly to LHR, there may be...
