That is putting it VERY mildly.

I used to make the DFW-NRT-BKK run and back twice a year. Unless I had a GOOD reason to hit the Admirals Club, usually to check on an upgrade on the transPac return...

It appears that I spoke too soon.

I checked the "prefunds" site. AA wants a $300 "cancellation fee". I telephoned. The telephone agent claimed it was because the hops from HSV-DFW and DFW-HND...

Back in January, before all this started, I booked HSV-DFW-HND-BKK and BKK-HND-DFW-HSV on AA, through the AA website, for late August. Straight-up paid tickets, no miles involved, paid through a...

THIS.

I have a transPac hop scheduled in a couple of months. I've been making that trip for fifteen years. The long over-water hop is scheduled on JL metal, and, at this point, I doubt that I will...

Buy two coach seats because large: EQD and EQM earnings

I am a "person of size".

AA's transPac Y, MCE, and PEY seats are terrible for me. JL's transPac Y seats are actually better for me than AA's PEY. (This is not idle opinion. This is tested. ...

*IF* the upgrade is available.

For a lowly PLT such as myself, that upgrade has just about gone the way of the passenger pigeon and dodo bird, at least on the DFW-NRT and DFW-HKG hops, both ways. ...

No, I got the DVT/PE on a 777 in a window seat in old-style J. The guy in the aisle seat was 6'+ and he stretched out and passed out, leaving me stuck in the seat for the entire hop.

Some years ago, before they redesigned the J seats and the 777 was still 2-3-2 in J, I was in J on an AA transPac hop. I was in the window. The guy in the aisle seat asked if I'd switch with his...

Don't worry. Doug "Discount Dougie" Parker over at AA is doing his very best to corner the market on "worst Y seats in the air", with his dense-pack 777 (x10) seats.

Yes, it is possible. I did it about six weeks ago, DFW-NRT. No problem at all. The JL agent in the Flagship Lounge at DFW was great!
