That's a serious mischaracterization of the users who disagree with you in this thread. I believe the comment you're referring to is Widgets, a DL employee, saying he doesn't know the exact letter of...

I would actually be surprised if you were able to find an official government policy relating to the OP's situation somewhere. The paperwork exception for direct transit (allowing travel without all...

The proof of onward travel requirement for one way flights is an entirely separate issue. The passenger still has to have the correct documentation to enter the country at the end of those one way...

That's not necessarily true. I'm not sure about AF policy, but I know DL policy is not to consider non-partner, second tickets when reviewing travel doc requirements, as Widgets stated upthread. I...

IMO it's understandable that the airline and the country would have different definitions of "direct transit." It's always been my understanding that airlines treat the O/D of the ticket they (or...

I would recommend JNB over SYD if you're being cost conscious, as money goes a lot further in South Africa. If you are there for three weeks, you could go on a safari up Kruger National Park, or head...

That's just not true. I've traveled internationally quite a bit (though certainly not as much as some others on this forum), including through South Africa, and I would not consider two separate...

The phrase "direct transit" is ambiguous, and the AF agent's interpretation (that a second ticket on a different carrier doesn't constitute direct transit) is easily defensible in a contract dispute....

It makes sense now why international flights were excluded from the C+ changes effective May 16th. Kind of a one-two punch to medallions.

I used to fly HOU-ATL every week, and they didn't have a dedicated Pre-Check line at HOU, though they do have a CLEAR line. I took that flight again one more time towards the end of last year though,...

I've asked this before on threads about the changes, but does anyone have any credible example of DL withholding available C+ seats from PMs and DMs? I've seen dozens of comments speculating that...

That's in this calendar year, putting him on pace for well over 300k qualification miles for the year. That being said, DL is unlikely to do a match, unless the OP is a higher up for a company that...

Not that I've ever seen. Last week I came back to the US from a tropical vacation with a pretty bad sunburn on my feet, so I would have paid dearly to be able to pre check, just so I wouldn't have to...

In my experience, DL only does challenges, not straight matches. Elite level is only 40,000 qualification miles on TK, right? DL might give you a challenge for Silver Medallion that would let you...

It's possible, but I still think that removing comp upgrades is a much bigger step than anything we've seen so far. It's important to remember that public perception of changes is more important than...

You think paid first class passengers should have their seats given away as upgrades if they aren't at the gate at T-40?!? I'm sorry, but that's completely absurd. That policy would be a DISASTER....
