They’ve said it will *not* happen. Period. No alliance.

The issues: they’ve said that to industry, but not to their customers. And they have yet to say what *will* happen, other than vague...

100% agreed. My point was that Expedia is at least a known, real company ... but I’ve only used them a handful of times in my entire life.

Correction!

... these are likely scam calls.

Ratio of passengers to lavatories in Y cabin?

I've done a few recent flights on 737-700s on both Delta and United (in Economy), and noticed that they all have two lavs in the back. On WestJet - at least on the 600s and 700s that I've flown - I...

It's worked surprisingly well for me -- although I don't check a bag often. Mine have pretty much always been one of the first 3 or 4 bags at the carousel each time.

If I recall correctly, upgrade spend on both United and Delta do count towards your qualifying Q$ spend. I think you also get a class-if-service bump in your earn rate with both, so you earn Q miles...
