I don't think that United realizes how many fans Channel 9 really has. I used to pay more to fly on UA just because of it. But in the last few years on board I refused to pay for audio, especially on...

Goodbye, BA

We just did what is most likely our last round trip on BA. We have been loyal customers for 30 years. There have been ups and downs. A couple of times we actually had to fly on AF directly to Paris....

Despite just paying $1,437 for two WT award seats to LHR [which used to be $0] for me, it's the only way to "cross the pond". Since window and aisle seats mean a lot to us and it didn't appear safe...

THanks for the schedule, Prospero.
Little Girl-Just the thought of sitting at the gate with all those WTs depresses me! If we were in F or CW and waiting in the BA lounges it wouldn't be so bad. I...

A380 lax-lhr?

Started checking mid Sept. flights LAX-LHR r.t. and was mildly shocked to see that BA has the A380 scheduled both ways. I'm not keen to try it as I'm a 747 fan. Well, who did I imagine would use...

It gets more difficult to find award seats every year. Because I don't have a backlog of avios I usually can't look until the end of the summer. Hunting used to be rather fun, sort of like gambling...

We fly to TPA once a year, usually through DFW. Perhaps we can stop there the next time on our way home from London. We're getting tired of paying that LHR fuel, TSA tax. GTW's must be lower.
