I look at the app the night before arrival: sometimes it says I've been upgraded (the wording is something like since you are a Diamond member we've upgraded you). If it doesn't say that, and I care...

Mid-September is the United Nations General Assembly gathering. It's not the best time to be in NYC: all the hotels are expensive, as you see, and the best restaurants have no tables.

In 2017 it's...

During weather events, definitely. Separate boarding for CKs. Dozens upon dozens of CKs and EXPs sitting in the back. Literally hundreds of names on the standby list, and dozens on the upgrade list....

The hours for the dedicated pre-check line are both short and unpredictable. I used EWR three times in 10 days earlier this month, and each time I was there, I asked the TSA supervisor on duty at the...

I checked in this morning for my flights tomorrow at about T-23:00, and the meal selection link showed up after I'd checked in.

I could read the menu for my first flight, but obviously not order,...

I would have agreed completely until Sunday. I was one of the passengers at DFW whose flight was cancelled around midday, and callback wasn't an option. Instead, I hopped on the OSO number as I...

I guarantee that if times are expressed by a 24-hour clock, a significant minority of people will still show up at the wrong time. Passengers on a 16:00 flight will show up for a 6pm flight, for...

Then you are very unlucky. I use JFK frequently, and virtually always use the Airtrain. I've only once been sent to a shuttle bus, and that was at around 9pm on a January night.

IME, it takes much, much longer to process two forms of payment than a voucher. I wasn't kidding when I said it took nearly an hour, and that was walking right up to the desk, with no wait on line.

When you go to the airport to have it done, budget a lot of time.

I did it the middle of last year for a simple itinerary using an AMEX gift card and a credit card as my two forms of payment (two...

JFK Terminal 8 Pre-check is more often than not a labyrinthine mess.

I use it roughly twice a month, and it's been terrible for the past year or so.

At 6am on Saturday, 7 February, there were...

A week or two ago, departing EWR for DFW on a morning with a short but messy snowstorm. The previous night's inbound for my flight had been cancelled, and the tugs were trying to swap around planes...

Mine did too, I was in 2A. It was a Mesa flight, and the cabin crew was really confused about it. "...a member of the One Star World Alliance" and "Thank you for flying US Airw--American Airlines."

So how were the AA number and the email address linked? That's what I don't understand.

I used my AA number only on AA.com, never on any associated or third-party sites.

I didn't bother restoring my monthly summaries or my 500-miler upgrades, because they aren't very important to me right now. The agent I last spoke with said she was told everything should be...

Do not assume that. My account died sometime shortly after you wrote that post, and I certainly have not gotten any information at all from AA.

I am currently on a very long hold trying to get...

Don't. When I've seen them, they've been at least a week old, but more often two weeks old.

There is, but it's scheduled for an hour, and for two people the fare is $26, very little less than a taxi would be, even with the tip.

And the taxi will go straight from the pickup at JFK to the...
